RAMMANOHAR LOHIA
With Vishveshvaraya

Lohia once met Bharatha Rathna Mokshagundam Vishveshvaraya, the great engineer-statesman, when he came to Bangalore. Vishveshvaraya was ninety years old. Lohia writes that after Mahatma Gandhi Vishveshvaraya was the second great man of India. Lohia recalls that in the hundred- minute meeting he found that Vishvesh- varaya's memory never failed him. He is all praise for Sir M.V.'S sharp intellect, his life of hard work and his tidiness even in old age. Vishveshvaraya told him that Indian steel was being sold in Glasgow in England even a hundred years ago and that it was possible to manufacture steel of any grade as a small scale industry. He told Lohia that he had no difficulty in preparing the designs for the Cauvery Valley projects as he had visited the Aswan Dam Project in Egypt.

Lohia evinced interest in such matters as language and education. He studied the similarity in the scripts of different Indian languages. It was his desire to design a single script for all Indian languages. He felt that different scripts wasted the country's time and money and divided the people. He wished that we had a single script as in Europe.

Lohia was a very widely traveled man. It was his wish to go round the world without a passport; he did visit Burma once without a passport.
