Letterhead - Letters table

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

These tables present letterhead use prior to Pune One, organized by the dates of the letters and name-papers that used them. Some distinctions are also made among letters not using letterheads, though little use of those distinctions is envisaged. A few letters are undated, and are given an estimated date range, based on letterhead usage data or other relevant facts.

Sannyas Wiki has collected images of many hundreds of letters, but this is not necessarily a representative sample of all of Osho's letters, as those who have shared their letters with the wiki have tended, naturally, to be those who received many. See the "Scorecard" section at the end for more on this and a survey / gathering of usage data for all letterheads prior to Pune One.

NapierTown-2 10 Jan 1964 Rajendranath Tripathi letter is typed
unknown 7 Feb 1964 J K Datta letter is a much later typed version of original; wiki image a photocopy of that.
plain paper 12 May 1964 Rajendranath Tripathi whole letter is typed, including a rudimentary letterhead,
consisting of "rajneesh" (in Devanagari), with a series of characters underneath
plain paper 23 May 1964 Manubhai Desai whole letter is typed, including a rudimentary letterhead,
consisting of "rajneesh" (in Devanagari), with a series of large dots underneath
There are some small differences between the two "rudimentary letterheads" above: the first has his name typed out not as a whole word but separated characters, "ra j nee sh", and its underscoring is not a series of large black dots but of unusual red characters which look most like cancelled "equal" signs, with the cancelling line here vertical rather than angled.

/ Woodland**
3 Nov 1970 Veetaraga Osho is living in CCI Chambers in Churchgate but using old letterhead from Jabalpur,
crossing out the address and writing in an address for Woodland, where he is not yet living.
Definitely past and future, not the present. Meanwhile, Churchgate letterhead is used for letters as early as 15 Oct and as late as 16 Dec, never mind Feb 1971, long after he has moved.

later years

So far the wiki has no images of letters written after 1971. There are a few dated Name-Papers though, so they will be presented here.

In the tables above, we can use the dates of the letters to study the letterheads. Here, the tables are turned, and we may be able to use the letterheads to gain an estimate of the dates, based on the above studies. Includes a few name-papers.

Scorecard

So which letterheads were the most used? We acknowledge that the survey thus far has an inbuilt tendency to favour some letterheads more than others. There are several aspects of this phenomenon: the major one is that Osho's tremendous output of letters certainly declined after the early 70s, while the number of name-papers kept on increasing. Beyond a few samples to establish letterhead date ranges, the wiki's interest in name-papers is not great, since they are inherently lacking the kinds of expression that would naturally appear in talks and letters.

This relates also to the aspect of who among recipients of letters have felt to offer images of their letters to the wiki: The more they have received, the more they understand the letters' value. And those to whom Osho has written many letters are few, and older, while those to whom Osho has written few letters are many, and younger, so the dynamic again naturally skews toward recipients of early letters.

A third aspect that tilts toward earlier letterheads is that, for the wiki, they can help in dating something Osho has written, should the need arise. Because of the wide variety of early letterheads, their time frames are correspondingly narrower, and every clue helps when it comes to sorting out events of those early days.

And so this is how it happens that some earlier letterheads will be more represented than some later ones. Perhaps more can be written about this as time goes on. For now, it is sufficient to recognize the possibility that no letterhead-use survey will ever accurately reflect Osho's actual output. It is a work-in-progress, never complete, that will likely never arrive near 100% accuracy. And that's okay.

Thus, for our current purposes, such as they are, we can say that this is how it is so far. Our bias toward earlier letterheads is what it is, and we shall not be concerned in this section with letterheads from after the Bombay era. That said, we certainly welcome more images from any and all letters that Osho has written from any era and will post them and any new letterheads that arise, just not the letterhead totals >1974. Yet.
