Story – When an Industrialist offered 50 lakhs to Maloy Krishna Dhar to fix up meeting with Indira Gandhi

Among his treasure of tales is the one about the late-night visit to Maloy Krishna Dhar’s New Delhi home by a “leading industrialist from Mumbai”. Dhar’s wife and son were kind of surprised. The industrialist placed a suitcase on center table. “I remember my wife and two young sons peering out from behind a curtain. I asked the industrialist what the suitcase contained. He said it had Rs 50 lakhs. All that the industrialist wanted me to do was to set up an appointment with the then prime minister, Mrs Indira Gandhi. I told the industrialist that I would help him but for that I did not want his money. Three days later, I arranged his meeting. Since then he became a good friend.”
