There was an association in
London called the National Indian Association. Its aim was to make the Indian youths that
went to England for higher studies great admirers of the British. It used to transform
patriotic young men into traitors by teaching them all soft of vices. One Miss Emma
Josephine Beck was its secretary.
Dhingra visited the office of the National Indian Association in the month of March
1909. He met and talked to Emma Beck. He made friends with her. He made interested
enquiries about the Association. He expressed a desire to become a member. The very next
month he enrolled himself as a member.
The British Government was a very cunning Government. It had formed a committee to
poison the minds of the Indian youths about their own nation. Sir William Curzon Wyllie
was one of the three important members of this committee. He was a cunning fox.
He was an expert in talking sweetly and poisoning others' minds. He was an adviser in
the office of the Secretary of State for India.
He had many opportunities to work out his evil plans. The Indian students, therefore,
hated him. They wanted to finish him if they get an opportunity.
This Curzon Wyllie was a good friend of Dhingra's father as well as of his brother. His
father used to write to Wyllie asking him to take care of Dhingra. Accordingly Wyllie met
Dhingra off and on and pretended to take interest in his welfare. Dhingra, in return,
pretended to have faith in him.
Gradually Wyllie started persuading Dhingra to tell him all the secrets of the India
But Dhingra used to meet Savarkar quite often; he used to tell him all that was going
on. He even told Wyllie a few important things about the India House, but he always
informed Savarkar about it and took his permission to do so. Letting on the secrets to
Wyllie was just a bit of play-acting.
