I am very happy to send you one our elephants as desired by you. She is a fine elephant, very well-behaved and, I am tood, with all the auspicious signs. You shold treat this elephant as a gift, not from me, but from the children of India to the children of japan.
Children all over the world are in many ways like each other. It is when they grow up that they begin to differ and, unfortunately, they sometimes quarrel. We have to put an end to these quarrels of grown-up people and I hope that when the children of India and the children of Japan will grow up,they will serve not only their own great countries, but also the cause of peace and cooperation all over Asia and the world.
So you must look upon this elephant, Indira by neme, as a messenger of affection and goodwill from the children of India.
Indira may perhaps feel a little lonely all by herself in Tokyo and mighit like to havea companion to play with. If you like, we can arrange to send a companion for her so that Indira may be happy in the new land which she is going tomake her home.
The elephant is a noble animal much loved in India and very typical of India. It is wise and patient, strong and yet gentle. I hope all of us will also develop those qualities.
I send you my affection and good wishes.
