I would like to read exactly what she said before jumping to conclusions and accusing somebody of castesim. Please post her article if you have it.

As far as I know, one of the supposed requirements for the WT to manifest was that the body must have been free of meat consumption for many lives. This need not mean a particular caste alone is qualified but in the context of the last century the odds were that a Brahmin body was more likely to satisfy the requirement. To say K was chosen because of his birth (and no other criterion) is wrong but we need to know what the president actually said.

Don't you think it a little strange that even today despite all her untheosophical activities she is given the power and authority she has and holds?
