TS President Radha Burnier's Health -- Doctors' Certificates
Apr 22, 2008 09:04 AM
All of us have heard about the unfounded allegations of the poor physical
and mental health of our President Radha Burnier and why Algeo volunteered
to stand for election.
A kind soul in the cyberspace, sent me certificates from two medical doctors
who have examined Radha Burnier recently and who testify to the good health
of Radha Burnier. One of them is her private physician and the other the
Principal of a Medical College.
I am providing them below. The certification of the doctors should allay the
fears of any member about the health condition of our President.
I understand that many members around the world have already seen them.
Also, it is my hope that the Section Secretaries do distribute them to their
members, since Justice and Fairness, which theosophists value very much,
requires factual information be made available to their membership before
they make up their minds and cast their votes.

As a senior physician, I have been looking after Mrs Burnier for more than
Mrs Radha Burnier had a "TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK" (TIA) on 11 November
2006. She recovered quickly and completely after taking a period of rest,
and also prescribed medication. She is now doing extremely well, and has no
health problems. Both her physical activity and mental alertness are
excellent, and I have permitted her to drive her car, and she is driving
In my opinion she is fit to undertake any responsibility involving strenuous
physical and mental activity, and undertake travel both within India and
I am sure this will clarify the doubts of some members of the Theosophical
Society about her current state of health, and this can be communicated to

This is to testify that I have examined Dr (Mrs).Radha Burnier on 11th and
12th of April 2008 in Adyar. I had reviewed her medical problems and found
that she has recovered from a mild stroke and that there is no need for any
undue concern regarding her health. At present she is having no motor
weakness; her speech and higher functions are normal; She has no problems
related to attention or decision making in goal-oriented problems. She is
attending her office and is able to exercise her work as the president of
Theosophical society. Considering her age and after the present medical
evaluation I can very confidently assure that there is absolutely no need to
worry about her health. It is very sad to hear rumors regarding her health,
which does not pertain to facts.
I hereby testify that Dr. (Mrs) Radha Burnier enjoys good health and any
scandals contrary to the same is not in accordance with facts.
