Re: TS Adyar ? The Truth Unveiled

Apr 01, 2009 11:08 AM

Dear Sampsa

I have tried to reply to you several times but the mail came up
blank, sorry for the delay.

Please don't place me in a box, to suggest that I belong to Radha's
little group is a clear indication that you don't know Radha.  
I am not even an ES member.

The following is an extract from the minutes of the 2007 General
Council meeting:

`The Headquarters was in need of more workers, particularly members
with a good knowledge of English. Such difficulties had arisen from
time to time. An appeal would be made to General Secretaries to
recommend suitable workers.'

It was following this appeal that the President of the Australian
Section, Linda Oliveira, thought of me.  After I had agreed to go
to Adyar the Secretary resigned and I was appointed as a matter of
urgency.  I had worked at Adyar previously in 1993 and since had
experience as the National Secretary of the Australian Section.  

I will at all times avoid presenting one sided views, my intention
is to just supply actual facts in an effort to reveal the truth. 

Dr Agarwal was appointed as International Secretary on 2 March 2009.

The Election Committee offered the Indian Section an extension of two
weeks because of the delay in receiving Circular No2 which contained
the bio data, voting slips, and information on the voting procedure
to be followed.
The Indian Section did not use this extension and sent their votes
in on time and before the deadline.

Only members of the General Council are officially invited to attend
the General Council Meeting.  There is no provision in the rules for
Observers to attend this meeting, it is always at the discretion of
the President or Chairman.

Best wishes
