It may be recalled that part of Adyar Estate leased to Krishnamurti
Foundation has been used for operating Krishnamurti School and the lease
expires at the end on 2014 and TS had decided not to renew the lease as it

Krishnamurti, the school supported by the rich can find and establish a new

Personally speaking, I or my kids could not have attended K School as we
are from average middle class and could not afford the tuition. As a
theosophist, I feel the first priority should be to serve the poor and
needy kids.
