There are many Internet cafes and in rural areas people can access from
public facilities. Even in large cities most people find it convenient to
use the cafes. Wireless phones with internet access is becoming popular with
younger generation. In order for theosophy to penetrate the younger
generation, it is going to take time and some creative work. Some young
theosophists have to take leadership position and then only things will
change. So long as real old folks continue to popularize theosophy, at least
it is not working outside India.
