Bhagwan, yesterday evening you spoke about setting up a commune either in a country or in an island. What you would prefer, to have a country or an island, and what it will the set up be like?
Question 2
Does such an island exist where there will be no control of a country?
Question 3
This point has been possibly in the mind of many people, that why not go to an island. Even when you went to Oregon, many people thought that...
Question 4
Could it be one island near Fiji?
Question 5
If I write all this information and can't name the island, they will sack me. (Inaudible) so much information about it. So, how is the climate there?

Question 15
That's correct, sir. But India today article you know... it was balanced, but some way certainly it was against (inaudible)
Question 16
But then the other side of the picture also. But there are people who are certainly very sincere, very willing to work, what do you think? Because my friend, Singh Veda he started this magazine... and put on whole life and there today bankrupt....
Question 17
It is the proprietors who tell lies, it is not the journalists, though it is his duty to check but he is afraid to check lest he loses his job. Then the government has a hand in over all the newspapers. News print quota.
Question 18
My request to you is to change the Times of India. They are becoming the biggest liars.
Question 19
I'll be grateful. I was single man in the whole times of India who disagreed with them and resigned (inaudible). And I don't regret.
Question 20
She is the one who really needs to be amended.
