In the book and all other sources known to me the date of the interview is mentioned as May 5, 1970 and the place as Bombay.

It is clear from other sources though that Osho was in Nargol, Gujarat at that date. Of course it might be that the place is incorrect, but the text in the book suggests that the interview was NOT in Nargol: "MYB: I was told at Nargol Meditation Camp...".

So that leaves the date is incorrect... or was the interview in the train from Nargol to Bombay...? --Sugit (talk) 12:42, 17 December 2013 (PST)

hmmm, he was still in Nargol late that day. would have to be a late night train ride.

also, i take it you meant 1970 (not 1971) --Rudra (talk) 18:20, 17 December 2013 (PST)

Yes, 1970, sorry. --Sugit (talk) 23:43, 17 December 2013 (PST)

ok Sugit,

Osho didn't take a train. He travelled by car.

"After the meditation camp, Shri Mataji and Chandra Mohan Jain travelled back to Bombay together in the car of Shri Maheshwari who was one of the trustees of Chandra Mohan Jain's group - Jeevan Jagruti Kendra (Life or Soul Awakening Centre). " [1]

so if the date and place is correct, then the interview happened very late that day in Bombay.

Now that is juicy gossip! Is this well archived in our vaults?

And on my visit tot the site with an ad for, so I must have the right cookies.

By the way, more confusing information here:

"There follows extracts from personal communications from the man who organised Rajneesh's meditation camps at Nargol: (...)
27 September 1999: We had a Meditation Camp at Nargol (Valsad Dist.,Gujarat) conducted by Acharya Rajneesh(Then OSHO was known as Acharya Rajneesh). It was on 4th May 1970, on returning from Nargol, Acharyaji (OSHO) and Nirmala Devi were travelling in a car from Nargol to Bombay. (...)"

The first edition scan i just uploaded shows the interview date as "6-5-1970" (not 5-5-1970). It appears the second edition not only changed Osho's name, but also the date. --Rudra (talk) 17:59, 24 March 2014 (PDT)

Indeed, I see now that the first edition has "On 6-6-1970, at Bombay." and the second edition has "held in Bombay on May 5, 1970". So for now assuming that 6 May 1970 is correct. --Sugit (talk) 13:34, 2 January 2019 (UTC)
