I am not the least interested in the 1993 edition

Nirod-da had been my English teacher and I knew his nature very well. Many people believe that in the Ashram, in 1990s, there was a period of misinterpretations, manipulations and deterioration. At that time, some intellectuals had come together to reinterpret things. According to my conscience, I rely on the 1972 edition of ‘Savitri’ because it had been scrutinised by Nolini-da, Nirod-da and K.D. Sethna. The Mother was physically present. I am not the least interested in the 1993 edition of ‘Savitri’. Jitendra Sharma

Ah Tusharji, a thousand thanks to you! Now the truth about who is behind these malicious messages, writing and spreading them is out! Your Open Forum is open indeed!
I am surprised that it is the same Kumud benji - who snaps her fingers insultingly with contempt at devotees who crave a few seconds in their Guru's room, who is known for misbehaving and ill-treating people, who behaves like Pope because she looks after Their room, who wanted to stop relics to go to Orissa, is writing all these things. But why she has not the courage to sign her name? Why she writes "inmates and devotees around the world"? Who gives her that right? And why there are no specific allegations but only vague allegations? I think Ashram is only institution in the world where someone crticize the leaders like this is still left undisturbed. Today my respect for Manoj Guptaji and trustees has risen thousandfold.
And isn't it surprising that same people behind peter heeh's book is also spreading this malicious email? See some of the names: Alok Pandey; Gitanjali; Jayant Bhattacharjee; Raman Reddy; Sraddhalu Ranade; Kittu Reddy. It reads like a list of conspirators who are out to destroy integral yoga community, who want power and will use any means to get it. Somebody on your forum said peter heeh's book is only excuse to take over ashram. Now i understand what that person means. I don’t also like Lives of SA book, but I also did not like the way above persons started to behave like leaders and head of the ashram sending emails to everyone and starting new websites. And now they are circulating anonymous nonsense.
Tusharji, thank you for exposing these people. You are playing an important role in presenting both sides of the issues. Baburao Posted by Baburao to Savitri Era Open Forum at 10:58 AM, April 03, 2010

Tusar, after all these years of living in the ashram, what have Kumud and Kittu and RYD learnt? To forward slanderous anonymous letters against the same trust that looks after them, feeds them, harbors them? Did any of them take the trouble to check the truth in these wild allegations? How can they forward anonymous writings?! Don't they have sense of basic ethics, responsibility? Poor trustees of the Ashram. They need all our support against these cowards. It seems even Pranab's sacrifice was due to Kumud. Rajesh Rao Posted by Rajesh Rao to Savitri Era Open Forum at 4:08 PM, April 03, 2010

There is a truth in every aspect, it is true that Kumud is crude in her behavior, at the same time it is also true that there are derogatory remarks in The Lives of Sri Aurobindo. It is also true that Ashramites have lost faith in the present management. Trustees themselves have said that Matri Prasad can not be trusted with money matters hence he was not taken in the trust board but pushed in the Sri Aurobindo Udyog Trust as a compromise. Every young student knows that Ambika Prasad was bitten badly by other prisoners by the instructions of Matri Prasad. It is a fully accepted fact in the Ashram that Manoj Das Gupta's management is based on the principles of favoritism, partiality and vengeance and not love, harmony and unity. At the same time, he is good in dramatics, speeches, avoiding decisions and a few relationships. It is a known fact that he uses different inmates as his front faces to save himself, like Vasant, Matri Prasad, Kanaiya, Nirmal, Prabhau, Puru, Saumya and so many more.
In short Ashram life requires a higher change, leaving a few true souls, in general there is a downward trend. A new path needs to be explored which can again put this collectivity on the progressive path. Posted by Anonymous to Savitri Era Open Forum at 9:58 AM, April 05, 2010  [Bharti Broadband (122.174.136.99) Madras, Tamil Nadu, India]
