The largest and perhaps most entangled government bureaucracy in the world is ruled from New Delhi, with more than six hundred million lives in these officials’ hands. Early on the morning of November 10, 1971, we flew Indian Airlines from Calcutta to Delhi, arriving at Palam Airport at 8:30 a.m. to a VIP reception on the tarmac beside the parked plane. Sri Hans Raj Gupta, mayor of New Delhi, along with a dozen government bigwigs, met Prabhupada as he stepped off the gangway…Bhaktivedanta Swami had lived off and on in Delhi for almost ten years during the late ’50s and early ’60s. It was here that he had struggled alone to print and distribute his Back To Godhead magazine and three-volume Srimad-Bhagavatam, Canto One. In those days he often walked across Delhi because he didn’t have the half-rupee for bus fare. Now, six years later, he was returning in triumph as India’s spiritual ambassador to the world.
