Release of the interned.

Published - September 19, 2017 12:15 am IST

A Public Meeting was held last evening [September 18] in the Gokhale Hall [in Madras], to congratulate the Interned Patriots on their release, with Dr. Sir S. Subramania Iyer in the chair. In spite of the short notice, the hall was full before the appointed hour and several had to go disappointed for want of accommodation. The meeting was attended by several non-Brahmanas. The sight of the audience with joyous countenances afforded a happy and striking contrast to that which had assembled in the Gokhale Hall just after the Internments. Two large photos, one of Mrs. Besant and another of Sir Rabindranath Tagore, drawn by a young artist of Lahore, aged 19, were put up in front of the Chairman’s table.
