Mrs Gnanam was most helpful. In fact, she was expecting me, she showed me the volumes of The Divine Life brought out for me. I was surprised at this efficiency. Not 20 minutes must have passed since Veena's phone call. Then Mrs Gnanam showed me my mail: that explained. I was surprised: I thought it hadn't reached. "I did not bother to reply because you were coming so soon," she said.
In the meantime Prof. Shinde turned up. It appears he is the head of the library. It turned out that he was from Maharashtra, and we got talking cordially in Marathi. I offered a complimentary copy of the latest issue of Divyadaan: Journal of Philosophy and Education (23/1), and he was so moved that he offered me a complimentary copy of Brahmavidya (which, it struck me, was the exact Sanskrit equivalent of Theosophy). I suggested an exchange, and he seemed open to it.
Mrs Gnanam directed me to take reader membership: Rs 50 fee, Rs 200 deposit. That took some time, but it was finally done, and then I settled down with the volumes in the Reading Room. But before that I took a good look at the card catalog, and found The Sikh Review (1971). I also found that the Library had a few issues of The Call Divine, and, more importantly, I found that the periodical was "A monthly journal devoted to the teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi" and probably published at Bombay by a P.M.N. Swamy. The holdings were: 1/1-5, 7-12 (1952), 2/2-5 (1953), 15/5 (1967), and 18/10 (1970).
Going through the volumes of The Divine Life took time, but it was worth it. The 26 (1964) and 27 (1965) volumes were not there, but the others were very much there: 33 (1971), 34 (1972), 35 (1973), 39 (1977), 40 (1978), 41 (1979), 43 (1981), 45 (1983), and the unnumbered (1992). I had to fill in photocopy request forms, and pay in advance for the copies as well as postage. The copies cost Rs 2 for a normal page, and Rs 4 for a larger size page. Digital photos are charged Rs 10 per page, so I did not attempt that. The gentleman at the counter assured me that the copies would reach me in Nashik before 14 August.
I was supposed to visit also the new Anna Centenary Library at Kotturpuram, but put it off for lack of time. But a glance at the Wiki article makes me think that I missed something. Should do it the next time.
