By 1965 Bhaktivedanta Swami had published the third and final part of the first canto of Srimad Bhagavatam. To pursue his goal of travelling to preach in the West, he requested Sumati Morarji, the head of the Scindia Steamship Company, who had given him a large contribution for printing Volume One of the Bhagavatam, to send him on a Scindia ship to the USA. This request was made through her secretary, Mr. Choksi. Mrs Sumati Morarji said he was too old and that it was better he remained in India and complete the Srimad Bhagavatam.
