If I remember correctly the difference of opinion was whether Rukmini was  
only mildly nuts or completely insane.
At that time there were still a number of very old, but also very  
influential people in the TS who remembered her bizarre performance in 1925 at  the 
Star Camp in Ommen and everyone remembered that she had been married to  
George Arundale.  It was said that with her defeat the stain of that period  
had been washed from the TS leadership.

New TS Election Issue
After the election results were announced  last year, the losing side made
allegations about the election which were  later proven to be wrong. Having
failed to win the election where members  world-wide voted for their
candidate, an end run was made by secretly  attempting to seize the power to
appoint the president not satisfied with  the present monopoly of GC
selecting the candidates. But for the Internet  and early discovery of the
move and membership outcry, it would have been  an fait accompli and members
could do nothing. No public apology was  forthcoming from those behind this
blatant attempt. Many thought that, GC  members will move on. No, it was not
to be. We witnessed the cleavage shown  in the GC meeting held in December
Now comes another piece of  interesting information from one of the
supporters of the defeated  candidate, which I quote - "For example, the
international presidential  contest in 1980, when Radha Burnier won over
Rukmini Devi, was also fraught  with differences of opinion."
How many of you have heard of this  differences of opinion? I have not seen
any comments from either Rukmini  Devi or her supporters or for that matter
from anyone inside TS or outside  TS.
What are the details of the differences? It would be interesting  to know,
because we do not want to see unsubstantiated statements thrown  out which
may sully the election procedures which have stood the test of  time and may
cast a shadow of doubt on the legitimacy of the now sitting  president.
We who believe There is No Religion Higher than Truth,  should search for
Truth when such serious statements are  seen.
