Hi Anand,

Of course the caution about addressing Radha has something to do with 
her position.  I joined the TS in the last year of John Coats's life, 
so don't have much experience to base this on, but he did not seem to 
have any such effect on members.  Perhaps because he was not OH...

 Also she is head of E.S. and Co-masonry. Many

I don't know what definition of organizational corruption would NOT 
cover this conflict of interest.  Creation of the ES was effectively 
destruction of the TS in terms of the original program(me).  Because 
John Algeo is up to his neck in these corrupting influences, he 
cannot lead the TS out of the maze.  But can anyone?  These 
particular tails have been wagging this particular dog for well over 
a century.  

 Another reason is

My experience in India (not that I asked people their religion that 
often) was that the people were more forward/friendly than anywhere 
else I've been.  Also less respectful of personal space, getting 
right up in your face.

Even within the US there are differences in friendliness and 
approachability.  "Old time" native Californians had a reputation for 
a breezy affability and the ones I knew as Theosophists fit the 
bill.  Grace Knoche and Emmett Small were enemies by most definitions 
of the word, but both treated me like kinfolks on my visits out
