Letter written on 7 Feb 1961 xm
This is one of hundreds of letters Osho wrote to Ma Anandmayee, then known as Madan Kunwar Parakh. It was written around midnight on 7th February 1961, on his personal letterhead stationery of the day: The top left corner reads: Rajneesh / Darshan Vibhag (Philosophy Dept) / Mahakoshal Mahavidhalaya (Mahakoshal University). The top right reads: Nivas (Home) / Yogesh Bhavan, Napiertown / Jabalpur (M.P.). Many of his letters on this letterhead have had the number 115 added in by hand before "Yogesh Bhavan" to complete his address, but not this one.
This letter has none of the marks and numbers that have been found in some other letters except a pale blue figure of unknown significance in the top left and another bottom right. Osho's usual salutation, "प्रिय मां" (Priya Maan, Dear Mom), is also used here. And the letterhead has been printed on paper with a watermark, "JUPITER BOND".
The date is on the top, with "अर्धरात्रि", (adhratri, or midnight).
Osho writes in grief about riots spread in the town (Jabalpur) due to Hindu Muslim row. He is seeing that man is animal in the roots - humanity is just superficial - little scratching and man is exposed. Such condition can not allow the nation to rise and with this we (India) can not achieve to be a dignified civilization.
This letter has been published, in Bhavna Ke Bhojpatron Par Osho (भावना के भोजपत्रों पर ओशो) on p 79 (2002 Diamond edition).
