Nah, they would take one look at how short Theosophists tend to be and  
never fall for it.

What we have here is a real cultural difference between  Theosophists. 
Obviously, and rather oddly to me at least, the president is  regarded as 
sort of spiritual leader in India. In the US we have  never seen her that 
way, merely as an administrator who does a rather bad  job of 
so all of this is to my eyes rather ridiculous.  

We have to put the election of Radha in the first place into context.  She 
really was the lesser of two evils, her opponent in that election  being 
Rukmini Devi, who was, by all accounts, literally insane by that  time and 
one wanted a member of the never-to-be-one wanted a member of the 
anywhere near the job again. Radha has proven to be  a bit of a disaster 
immediately after her first and disasterous visit  to the US, the butt of 
some really bad jokes and now has somehow morphed  into Satan incarnate, 
which_ was supposed to be my job.

Perhaps the cogent  point is that 'he was chosen', and those that did the 
choosing saw in him  an opportunity to educate him towards the goal of 
'their next world  leader'. Well they picked the wrong Brahmin didn't they, 
no-one can alter  another person's path regardless of how much they attempt 
to. Bitching and  moaning about any President has never had that president 
removed, and  quite frankly, all this political twoing and frowing puts 
people off  discovering whether Theosophy is for them or not. 

I was going to hold  my silence but this political ramming is just adding 
to the decaying of  what Blavatsky gave us.

This need not mean a particular caste  alone is qualified but in the 
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
