Dear Erica and Anand,

With your proposal we could probably have:

Greece - 140 members - 1 GC member 
India - 13,000 members - 92 GC members 
Rest - 17,000 members - 121 GC members 
Total GC members - 214

Or maybe we could have 1 GC member per every 500 members:

India - 26 members
Australia - 2 members
Brazil - 1 member
Cuba - 1 member
England - 2 members
Italy - 2 members
New Zealand - 2 members
USA - 4 members
Total GC members - 40

And other national sections should accept special demographic 

Do you know why former Yugoslavia felt apart? There appeared a 
politician who propagated the policy: 1 man 1 vote in federal 
republic composed out of 5 units. And, yes, he belonged to the larger 
nation in the federation and wanted to impose his views to others. 

This is very dangerous game! Be careful! The Theosophical Society is 
a society not a corporation! 

Best regards,
