Tiger Wood Syndrome

When Tiger Wood, the worldâs best known athlete, got into trouble
because he had extra-marital affairs, he went into hiding. No one has
seen him in the public. All public saw was a craftily worded statement
(language, in the hand of an expert can easily be used to conceal or
mislead the reader without even the readers becoming aware of it) on
his website, which he had hoped would solve his problems with the

This is a one-way controlled communication that many are comfortable
with, especially when they are in deep trouble. A good communication
with the public requires the person to face an audience of questioners
and there is two-way interaction. Not only this is effective, but also
settles a lot of issues and questions and it is the only way to
rebuild the confidence between the person and the public.

Some may be wondering why, I have brought it up here in this
theosophical forum. It is simple. For too long, the octo and
septuagenarians of the TS who grew up in pre-Internet age and where
they were fortunate in controlling the channel of communication with
members are still clinging to pre-Internet mode of communication
probably hoping it would work.

We have seen many times statements made in the Cyberspace websites,
some times under their own names and other times under pseudonyms.
Where does this lead to? The lack of multi-mode communication does not
have any effect on the theosophists. On the other hand, there is only
a slow erosion of confidence and trust in well known names, especially
after watching all the events that took place since early last year,
especially the attempted coup to seize control of the president and
thus the organization and its money and property. Many dedicated
long-time theosophists are still in a state of shock and disbelief in
what they saw; they could not even in their dreams imagine such things
can happen in a society which stands for Universal Brotherhood and
whose simple motto is - There is no Religion Higher than Truth.

Either these octo and septuagenarians have to transform themselves to
the Internet mindset or we  will have to wait for them to leave the
physical plane which is going to happen any way. If they choose to
transform soon, they would be doing a lot of favor to themselves and
