It gives opinion that Sardar Vallabhbhai patel was known as the iron man of India and was a statesman produced in the recent history of independent India. His work initially in the independent movement and his monumental work in the reorganization of princely states to unify the country later as deputy prime minister of India will be written in gold in the modern history of India. Sardar Vallabhbhai patel foundation is in the right direction to prepare his memory. It should organize seminars on the stories of Sardar patel by eminent historians and scholars.
