    Background: Leading Indian Leaders are now making vigorous efforts to persuade Mr. Tara Singh to break his fast unto death. On the 18th day of his fast, as the Akali leader grew weaker and weaker, Mr. Jai Prakash Narain, the top Socialist thinker and leader in India and the chief exponent of Sarvodya called on Master Tara Singh in the company of Mr. J.J. Singh. Sant Fateh Singh, the deputy of the Akali Chief was also present during talks. The Akali leader who was resting outside in a Verandah was taken in on the cot and then rolled over to his cot inside the room. The talks then began to explore the possibility of his breaking fast. Vast crowds waited outside and looked at photos of the fasting leader.
