That is a very good point. It now remains for all of us to see whether any of her critics will be given the privilege of addressing the members during the World Congress in Rome.

So far there has only been an announcement that at least Radha, Linda Oliveira and P.Krishna will be speakers in the World Congress. No other speakers have been confirmed.
I think Radha should include her criticians, too, in the program. Otherwise the Congress will not unite members and will not increase co-operation.
I don't believe at all that there will be any discussion about organisational matters. Those congresses are very formal. But in the free-time, of course, members will talk about them. By the way, in my understanding it is Radha and the Italian Section who order the program.
MKR, what you write about problems in many Sections is true, but I wish you would be fair and would write on aged people and lack of transparency at Adyar, too. There are problems everywhere in the TS.
