1971-1973 Letters & Telegrams

Posted By Author on September 30, 2011

12/1/1971:

Is left blank.  I do not remember why.

18/1/1971.  I received a letter from Salil as below. It is Baba’s letter through Salil. It is most caustic letter. If Baba was not Netaji the question of treachery does not arise.

‘Om’

Form

Raj Salil Prakash Mittra                                          Dated     18/1/71

52 B.B.Chaterjee Road, Calcutta-42

To

Dr.Suresh Padhye M.A., Ph.D.

Khaparde Garden, Amravati,

Maharashtra

RENEGADE.

Received your letter Dt/ 9.1.71 along with all the samples of treachery. You have written about your immense ‘Shrdha’. Well, the following are a few very fine points of yours what Shrdha means:

(a) I have been squeezed.

(b) ‘Wo sab chitthi kya padhna hai. Wo sab me to khali galiabaji hai.’

(Why should those letters be read? They are full of invectives.)

(c) Shomu’s life is being ruined here

(d) Receive spiritual band at station

(e) He told me He would remain at Melghat for about 15 days now it is four months.

To crown the above mentioned and scores of the type, you’re expressing to many of us about your own heinously stupid view of the advent of Chinu thereby unspeakably throwing vile insult on Him. He has tolerated your wildness too long with too optimistic expectation of your correction, but you have proved yourself too vulgar and too indecent to be corrigible and to have any decent company. Beast, hang down your head in shame if you have any capacity to have it at all.

You are a good example of to what extent a man can be shameless and hypocritical. Millions of fie upon you.

Treachery herself will be ashamed of your treacherous act.

May the Divine Mother keep away from Him such persons of villainous Shrdha like you?

Raj Salil Prakash Mittra

(This letter of Baba in the name of Salil shows how terribly he was upset and offended due to my venture to prove his identity as Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. In His explosive burst of ire, Baba’s dictated letter in other’s name would not begin with dear Suresh or end with best wishes. It clearly indicated that I should rush to see Him and pacify.)

11/2/1971:

I received Baba’s letter through Ramen Roy. His anger has mellowed and language has sobered down.

Ramendra Kumar Roy M.A.LL.B

Advocate Calcutta High Court

Calcutta-42

My dear Suresh

I do hope that by this time you have received two telegrams. In the first telegram you were asked to come to Calcutta immediately and as such Salilbabu attended station to receive you. In the second telegram you were asked not to start immediately. The import of the 2nd telegram is that Sri Baba will shut HIMSELF within for about a fortnight for work.

I will inform you again the date when you will come. So please wait till the message goes to you again.

Hope you are well with Kunda with kiddies.

Accept my love and extend it to others

Yours sincerely

Ramendra Kumar Roy

29/3/1971:

A Letter from Ramendra Kumar Roy dictated by Shri Baba.

Dear Suresh

I learnt from the letter of Dr.Wadodkar that by irony of fate your brother Umesh and his wife met death by a lorry accident. This news crushed our hearts and I express my deepest sympathy for the worst possible disaster descending on your family especially your parents in their old age.

We express our deep heartfelt condolence to your bereaved family and pray for the peace of the departed souls.

Inscrutable is the will of Divine and His mechanism is terrible.

Convey my love to your children and regards to you all.

Yours sincerely

Ramen Roy

12/8/1971:

I wrote an indirect letter to Baba in the name of Ramen Roy in order to pacify him. It is as below:

‘Om’

Amravati

Dt/- 12.8.71

Dear Ramendada,

After a worst conflict of mind for months together I am venturing to write a few lines to you.

I was bit stunned to see your letter of deep condolence over the very shocking and sad demise of my brother and Baudi. I could clearly read between the lines as to who dictated it. It was my firm belief that for the gravest crime that I committed I may not dream a single word directly or indirectly from Him. The letter was indeed a great solace in our grief. I was all the while hesitant to even acknowledge it for the fear that it may be rejected.

Today now I have realised that He is harder than ‘Vajra’ and softer than flower. Both consciously and unconsciously I assure you this is not for the sake of flattery.

It seems that calamities never come alone. Since March I am envisaging shocks after shocks. Up to May I was busy after winding up Raipur house and now my late brother’s daughters, mother in law and sister in law are with us. As soon as I came my friend Dr.Ghiya’s father in law expired due to heart attack. Next week one of our lecturer Mr.Keskar accidentally died under a train in Bombay where he had been to conduct examination. {His son Dinesh Keskar is now vice President of Boeing Company of U.S.A.) Then next week my friend Ratnakar Shinde died suddenly. He was one of the prime donors of Ashram. Again next week my brother’s Guru Advocate Patki died due to heart attack. These scores of shocks have almost benumbed my fears and worries of death and calamities. To add to it my father in law and grandmother of my wife too had heart attack but fortunately they escaped narrowly. Now my mother is bed-ridden. She was examined at Nagpur and if there is no relief we might take her to Bombay. She is diabetic and having gall-bladder stone. God alone knows what is waiting in future.

However, when I contemplate on ghastly crimes and stark genocide that is being perpetrated in Bangla Desh I feel my pain, suffering, and calamities are just pebbles in the vast ocean of miseries of life. Believe me I am passing sleepless nights thinking about this disaster. I am thinking and rethinking of giving up the job and enter the fray. Can there be any other opportunity to serve the suffering humanity? I am badly entangled in the labyrinth of thoughts. I am trying to find out a way but in vain. A vicious battle is going on between heart and brain. Last time my feelings superseded brain and I was pray to folly. On one side after death of brother, parents and family are roving a terrible retaining force while on the other side those lines of Kabir narrated by Baba are haunting, ‘ Kabira khada bazaar me, hat liye lakhoti aur jo fuke apno ghar challe hamare sath.’ (Kabir is standing in Bazaar with a burning torch and those who are willing to torch their house alone shall accompany.) If Buddha had thought of family he would never have become Buddha. In between these two diverse pulls sometimes frustration brings a diabolic thought nay impulse of committing atrocious crime. Less said of it the better it is.

Yesterday night I could not sleep without a pill. The thoughts of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman trial by Pak army and that he may meet fate of Lumumba just brought me on the verge of madness. Who on earth can save him?

I do not know where and how shall I drift away. The urge to do something is becoming stronger and irresistible. Every moment is now critical for me.

The 15th of August is due. I am pondering over the sweet reminiscences of 15th August 1967 when with him I had a nice long walk in the Himalayan hills upto Chunni via Vidyapith.

This much and nothing more with regards to you and Baudi, reverence to your mother, love to Ratna and Babu, convey my highest respect to Him if acceptable.

Yours affectionately

Suresh

30/8/1071:

As expected Shri Baba read my letter addressed to Ramen Roy and He dictated the following letter in Ramen’s name.

Calcutta.30.8.71

My dear Suresh

Received your letter, dated 12.8.71. May you regain your peace of mind?

Any sensible man must take note that ambition self-deceptively masquerading as service to suffering humanity does pay little; nay it pays negatively a lot to push man downward more into the domain of ignorance.

Yours sincerely

Ramen

19/12/1971:

The American 6th fleet entered Bay of Bengal threatening India. I was uneasy. I sent the following telegram in the name of Ramen Roy Indirectly it was meant for Baba.

‘ UNO HOAX STOP TERRIBLY WORRIED STOP AMERICAN FLEET MOVED STOP CHINESE SHIFTING ARMY STOP GENERAL ASSEMBLY VERY LIKELY TO OVERCOME RUSSIAN VETO STOP THIRD WORLD WAR MAY ESCALATE STOP WORDS OF HIS HOLINESS COMING TRUE STOP HIGH TIME STOP MAY HE SHOOT FAST

SURESH

ENIGMA SOLVED

The enigma of missing diaries is probably solved although I cannot believe it still.  The prologue to 1976 diary unfolds the puzzle.

25/4/1973:

I sent a letter to Ramen Roy giving details of a case of my friend from Germany who did lend 1500 Marks to Mr.Paul of Calcutta, as his father was serious. The cheque of repayment was dishonored and summons was issued by court at Amravati. I requested Ramen to accept the brief and execute the case. I enquired about the amount of fees to be sent.

First I mentioned that I dared not write a letter to him, as I was outcast.

14/5/1973.

As expected Ramen showed my letter to Baba for advice and Baba dictated the following terse reply in Ramen’s name. Watch there is no dear Padhye or best wishes. It was a signal for me to rush to Baba to ameliorate his ire.

37, South Kumarpara Lane

Calcutta-42

14.5.1973

Dr.Suresh Padhye,

Khaparde Garden,

Amravati

As I had been for a long time out of Calcutta and retuned here only yesterday, I could not give you an earlier reply.

Keeping in view the heinous mischief you committed in relation to all of us in general and in relation to Shri Baba in particular and keeping in view to your inherent propensity of perpetrating such blatant mischief, I cannot think of entertaining even any professional relationship with you.

Accordingly the legal matter you sent to me is herewith sent back to you.

Ramendra Kumar Roy

17/12/1973:

Mr. Bhattacharjee from Assam extended lot of money for Ashram. He was dreaming of green pastures. He wrote the following letter to me.

Khan Stores & Agency

General Merchants

F.O. Dibrugarh, Assam

Dt/- 17.12.73

To

Sj. Dr.Suresh Padhye, M.A., Ph.D.

Amravati

Parampujya,

I had to inform you that I hope you are well in good health by kind grace of God. Please convey my Pronams to Shree Baba, Dada and same for you all, Shri R.C.Saxena and Shri Ramendra Kumar Roy, M.A., LL.B. Calcutta. I am getting their letter as usual. I shall be highly glad and thankful to you if you kindly have the present news of Baba and where is Ma Chinmayee.

Shri Baba Swami Shrimat Saradanandaji has gone out for the Supreme Power of Sadhana for the whole world’s Vishwa Kalyan and within a very short time Baba will come out. He will touch with the common people of the world. That time may not so far. I hope that Bang Bandhu Shek Mujibur Rahman Prime Minister of Bangla Desh will do some for the country by Baba’s kind grace. We are waiting for those days.

My good wishes to you and all.

Yours faithfully

K.P. Bhattacharjee
