Chapter Summary

The understanding and activities in England and the Allied circles did have immediate repercussions in India. In response to the call for cooperation within the Commonwealth and amongst the Allies for the war, India opened her liaison offices in London and Washington; scientific and technical missions were exchanged and by 1942, a War Resource Committee was constituted. A range of activities followed in the years to come. The need for immediate supply of technical personnel to the fighting machinery and scores of industries that backed up the gigantic war effort was a matter of first and foremost concern. The war that was expanding both in time and space required more supplies, its ferocity demanded more powerful weapons, and the wants and shortages it created obliged the government to ensure unhindered supply and search for substitutes.
