Believe me, with John Algeo at the helm of that idea, it?would definitely come to pass. He is great at breaking away and starting his own clubs. Just as long as he is the big muckety-muck, the great poobaaah, the one wearing the biggest stuff, etc.

Then they would have to move the International HQ to the US, or all the 
western sections would break off and start their own, new TS.

Very few outside India know how deeply many theosophists were involved in
the Indian Independence movement and of course everyone knows Annie Besant's
political activities for which she was elected the President of Indian
National Congress. While we may not see it, even today TS enjoys support
from a lot of politicians past and present.

Years ago, Indian Govt passed a law requiring all Indian corporations to
have 51% local control. IBM's Indian subsidiary was 100% owned by IBM USA
and Indian Govt did not budge and IBM chose to close down the business in
India. If the GC goes on meddling with the Rules and a handful of members
try to seize control of TS, we should not be surprised at a legal challenge.
Furthermore, considering the importance of Adyar, and TS as a tax-exempt
religious charitable organization, it would not surprise me if the Govt
passes a law imposing majority Indian control of all tax exempt charitable
organizations, which would include TS. This would be a permanent slam dunk
to end all machinations.
