Re: Theos-World TS Election - Radha Burnier's Health

You did not hear her speak at Olcott right after she was elected.  It was so bad that when an outsider asked who she was, he was told that it was just some woman from India staying there because no one wanted to admit that she was the society President.

I had one of my best lines at her expense years ago at the US convention.  They showed that dreadful movie that she was in and at one point in the dialogue, when her character is asked if she would marry an American, her character responded, "I don't understand them."  At that point, possessed by mirth demons, I blurted out, "She still doesn't!"  And everyone in the room roared with laughter.

That´s a pretty rude comment about her. I have heard her speaking so 
many times.
She is one of the best international lecturers of TS. She has done her 
studies on theosophy very well.
One can find that out in her talks. She has lived teachings in practice 
in the best way she has been able.
She has always been very hard worker. Her memory what comes to names of 
members has been always amazing.
I belive she has hold the candel for Theosophy and the Society.
Sure I have heard her being tough and demanding boss for those who work 
at Adyar.
But loving kindness attitude has increased on her within last few years.
Toward me she has been very loving as well during bad as well during and 
good times.
