Albert-da’s resignation: Bulu clarifies

January 20, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Recently some of our readers were blessed with an email from the “General Editor” of CHOLATLOSA (the Central Hub Of Lies About TLOSA) screaming “Enough of Falsehood – Ashram Trustee resigns!”  It went like this (abridged to minimize the production of stomach acid): This morning saw high drama in the Board of Trustees of the Ashram Trust. In the general backdrop of the ongoing Probe of criminal actions of the Trustees … Their well-wishers and advisors have warned them repeatedly that if they do not solve their problems in-house they will surely end up in jail. And their time is not far … under pressure of his own conscience, this morning Albert Patel, the senior-most Trustee of the Ashram Trust, submitted his resignation to the Trust Board… The email included three congratulatory comments from the insufferable RY (“Bye Bye”) Deshpande.

On January 17, 2013 Bulu posted the following message to the SAICE Alumni Yahoo Group. (See here and here for context)

Dear A.,

While you are finding out the real facts behind Albert-da’s letter of resignation, I too have carried out my little exercise doing the same. In fact I met Albert-da this morning at his office and was greeted by his usual bright smile; the same unchanging smile that I am used to since I had known him as a little kid in green group…

I told him the purpose of my visit and wanted a private audience with him. He said I could ask him whatever I wanted and that there was no need of a private audience. I told him about the disturbing rumours floating about surrounding his unexpected resignation.

“What rumours?” He asked.

“All sorts” I replied “It is alleged that you have objected to the SAAT’s stand on Peter’s TLOSA, the court case as a result, the managing trustee’s high handedness etc.” I said

“Oh you mean the rumours being spread by Sraddhalu on his website? They are all rumours and totally false. They are trying to divide the board of trustees by their actions but they will fail.” He said

“But then why did you resign? To some people it seemed very abrupt” I said

“Look, I am 90 years of age and my physical health is taking its toll; that is why I thought of it (resigning). There is nothing very abrupt about all this. Besides, my letter of resignation has not been accepted by the board of trustees so I am still continuing in my full capacity as a trustee” He said

“Some people say that your letter was very short and curt and feel that there must be more to it” I said

“Everyone is free to speculate whatever they want to, I can’t stop that. You have known me since you were a little kid, was I ever a man of many words???” He said

“Albert-da, you have clarified all the questions I have raised. Could I, with your permission, share it with others?” I asked

“Of course” He said emphatically. A man of few words indeed…

As I was turning to go, he called me back, drew out a blessings packet with Sri Aurobindo’s photo from his purse and gave it to me.

“Don’t be so worked up, He will take care of all these things. Leave it to Him” He said with his ineffable smile and a twinkle in his eyes…

As I walked out, I felt tangibly that a burden had been lifted off my shoulders. There was new spring in my steps and an unassailable confidence that the people who specialise in spreading falsehood about Sri Aurobindo, the Mother and the Ashram or their evil collaborators in far off continents can never ever succeed.
