Dear Konstantin,

According to the 2007 Annual Report of the TS, of the 35 members of 
the General Council, only 6 live in India: Radha Burnier, Keshwar 
Dastur (Treasurer), Mary Anderson (Secretary), D. K. Govindaraj 
(additional member), Conrad Jamieson (additional member) and S. 
Sundaram (General Secretary, Indian Section). All the others live

The Election Committee wrote to the French General Secretary asking 
her to take action to counteract the effects of the letter of March

John was nominated by Radha three times as Vice-President, with a 
term of three years each time. One can only do that if one completely 
trusts the other person. But when she came under attack he decided to 
remain silent.

You are entitled to your opinion. I am not discussing the "state of 
affairs in the T.S." but the unjust and unfair attacks on the 
President of the Society. Do you have any idea of how many thousands 
of members may have voted world wide influenced by the correspondence 
circulated against the President by some General Secretaries?
