Phalgun 8, 1882(Saka).
On the occasion of his 48th birthday, I send my best wishes to Shri Yeshwantrao Chavan, Chief Minister of Maharashtra. Shri Chavan who is one of the youngest Chief Ministers in India, has distinguished himself for his public spirit, political acumen and integrity. It pleases one's heart to see him cited so often as an example of what the younger generation of Indian public men is capable of accomplishing. It is his successful stewardship of the former undivided Bombay State and now of Maharashtra which has earned him this distinction.
I wish Shri Yeshwantrao Chavan many more happy returns of this day.
