"One day news spread that government was doing evaluative work to see what kind of monetary help could be offered to Pandits. At Shastri Nagar (in a school, I think) was set-up a make-shift office of a government representative doing this evaluation. Pandits were happy that finally the government, their 'Center', was doing something for them.....Next day, this form was duly submitted in that office.

It was much later that the Pandits realized that the man was probably just a student working on some PHD."
