Letter from Phyllis Naidoo to Friends

I awoke early today knowing it was Friday and it was Sahdhan's (Sanna) birthday. Had he lived he would have been 36, and maybe made me a gift of a grandchild. Somewhere else I have written about his birth at McCord Hospital of beautiful nurses and a racist one.


With the appointment of the Rt. Hon. Shastri, as the High Commissioner of India to the Union of South Africa, Indo-South African relations have entered into a new and significant stage.

Memorandum on the Position of Indians in the Union of South Africa submitted to the United Nations

The existence of the Indian population in South Africa is not the result of any forcible or illegal entry of Indians into that country. It is, on the other hand, the result of organised emigration mutually agreed upon between the Goy.ernment of India and the Government of Natal.

Letter from Phyllis Naidoo to Friends

Today is two (2) years since Sha left us and I am still bleeding.  When the phone rang at 6.15 this morning I was afraid that it was Sha's nurse telling me in trying to stand up Sha fell to his death, but it was my darling Betty telling me she would take me to hospital at 7.30am.

Funny you should mention sunflowers - as just a couple of weeks ago. I threw seeds all over the garden  - and they've started sprouting. I'll send you pictures when they bloom. Garden is getting better although now with winter coming we'll loose all the the green.

Letter from Sue to Phyllis Naidoo

Thank you for the two copies of your constitution. I think that it is a brilliant idea to.have a KISS version (Keep It Simple Stupid) as well, and I think that our Government should do it before we become a republic.

Our transfer documents have been ready to lodge for several months but the attorneys for the new bondholder have not been ready. The purchaser had not signed the bond documents and eventually only did so about four weeks ago where upon we were given the guarantee.

The Agreement between India and South Africa

In writing for the International Review of Missions concerning the Agreement between the South African and Indian Governments, which has reconciled some of the gravest outstanding difficulties, it is right that I should lay stress, at the outset, on the spiritual side of the long conflict.
