Long-time Ainslie - recently Sydney - resident Bill Haskett has set the cat among the pigeons and raised the question of whether Canberra's designer Walter Burley Griffin should be buried in the national capital, specifically by the lake that bears his name.
Bill and his wife Kristen recently visited Griffin's grave in Lucknow, India, where the Chicago-born architect is buried.
Griffin died as the result of peritonitis aged 60 on February 11, 1937, and was buried the same day in an unmarked grave in the Nishatganj Cemetery of the Church of North India.
Some might recall Robyn Archer sprinkled water from Lake Burley Griffin on the grave in 2012, ahead of Canberra's centenary in 2013.
Bill was "very overwhelmed" when they got to the now-marked grave in an "overgrown and dilapidated cemetery".
He says Burley Griffin is buried in a section simply called "The Christian Cemetery".
"The cemetery is hard to find, no-one has heard of it, our rickshaw driver stops a dozen times for instructions from street vendors," he said.
"Finally, we enter the consecrated ground and wander through rows of the remains of Anglo-Indian and Indian Christians before finding the man himself.
'We brush the leaves and dirt away reverently. The locals find it hard to share our breathless excitement at being in the presence of the Great Man but still smile benignly."
Walter and his wife and design partner, Marion Mahony Griffin, set up an architectural firm in Lucknow and produced more than 50 projects between 1935 and 1937 before he succumbed to peritonitis.
Bill Haskett reports Lucknow has its own charms - "insanely photogenic peacocks and hens, gardens and temples, rich, fragrant Mughal stews and intricate chicken weaving, sweet milky chai and crunchy vegetable stuffed samosas".
But, he suggests, perhaps the time has come for Burley Griffin's remains to be exhumed and reburied on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin, where more people can see it and stop to think of his contribution to the national capital.
"Should we be repatriating this giant figure in our nation's dreaming and bring him home to rest in a memorial on the grassy slopes next to the lake that bears his name?" Bill asked.
Then Centenary of Canberra heritage adviser David Headon accompanied Ms Archer to India to honour Burley Griffin's grave back in 2012.
Dr Headon said at the time there had been suggestions, including when he worked as a cultural adviser to the National Capital Authority, that Burley Griffin's bones should be exhumed and the grave moved to Canberra. But he opposed the move.
''It seems to me to be a practice associated with the 19th century, not the 21st century. It seems to me to be a tad ghoulish,'' he said, back in 2012.
''The equally symbolic reason is the Griffins had a special relationship with India. They certainly had a special relationship with Australia, albeit they fell out with Australian bureaucracy.
"But that notion of the purity of the early days never left them in India because Walter was only alive in India for some 14-and-a-half months, but he said in so many words that he may have been an Indian in a previous life."
