A letter written by former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi to the owner of Tata Group of Companies, JRD Tata, has created a buzz on social media. 
Industrialist Harsh Goenka, chairman of RPG Enterprises, shared the letter and wrote: "A very personal letter exchange between a powerful Prime Minister and a giant industrialist. Sheer class!"
The typewritten letter was dated July 5, 1973, and had Gandhi's signature. She addressed Tata as "dear Jeh".
Check out the tweet: 


The letter seems to be in response to Tata gifting Gandhi with some perfumes, to which she replied that even though she did not usually use them, but would like to experiment with the gifts. 
"I am thrilled with the perfumes. Thank you so much. I don’t normally use perfumes and am so cut off from the ‘chic’ world that I do not even know these, but will certainly experiment with them," the former PM wrote in the letter. She signed off with good wishes to Tata and his wife Thelly.

 

Since the letter was shared online, people can't keep calm and they were enthused by the exchange. Goenka’s original post has now over 7,000 likes on Twitter.
