The current issue of Mother India carries an old letter by Amal Kiran regarding “Doing pranams to Sadhaks” which has been a contentious affair all along. It would have been ideal, however, were M.P. Pandit’s justifications on the matter too included.
Allied to the issue is the phenomenon of feudalistic signs shown by the Sadhaks which spawns a sense of superiority bordering upon immunity from any probe. Such condescending attitude invariably takes a despicable turn, wherever finance is involved, and consequently, probity comes under cloud. Accountability, propriety, and transparency, therefore, are the apt behavior as “Caesar's Wife should not only be honest but also be seen to be honest.”
