Over the past 5 months and more we have been constantly writing to various high-ranking Govt. Officials of India updating them of our fast deteriorating situation and requesting them to help us and save us from the wayward and unruly trustees of Ashram. Yesterday was the third time that our actions have been personally acknowledged and let us hope that this time round, the third time, we shall get results.

HIS EXCELLENCY, the Hon’ble Home Minister of India Sri Rajnath Singh-ji, having received many SOS-Faxes from us during this past week, called Arunashri last evening who assured her safety for all of us. He had already spoken to her twice before with the same assurance and once again his words of encouragement and concern have further reinforced our bones with steely resolve. We are deeply grateful to him and sincerely thank HIS EXCELLENCY Sri Ranjath Singh-ji.

However even persons like the Hon’ble Home Minister have only a fixed tenure of the position he holds whereas the trustees enjoy lifelong tenure without accountability or any method of selection. Therefore the trustees have become a law unto themselves and listen to no one.

Since yesterday there was no Trust Board meeting we hand-delivered our letter dated 15.12.2014 to Dilip Dutta, Batti and Manoj Das Gupta, without asking for any acknowledgement from them. Dilip Mehtani refused to accept our letter and we could not find Abhipsa Nagda. But we were assured by Manoj Das Gupta that in the Trust Board meeting being held today he would put forward our letter for the trustees’ decision.

I am producing below the text of the undertaking which we have asked the trustees to give us. This time, since our lives are anyway almost forfeited, we shall not budge or compromise in our rightful demand. The fate of the trustees, their many well-wishers and supporters as well as the Ashram community depends on the decisions made by them today before 12.00 p.m. We are waiting and watching with calm indifference – LOSS OF LIFE or LIFE WITH DIGNITY.




We, (1) MANOJ DAS GUPTA, (2) DILIP KUMAR DUTTA, (3) DILIP MEHTANI, (4) PRABHAKAR RUPANAGUNTA @ BATTI and (5) ABHIPSA NAGDA, the trustees of Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Pondicherry, are willing and ready to provide and extend immediately all the facilities of Ashram like ‘Prosperity Book’ for 2015 and subsequent years, medical care, food, shelter (as already occupied presently), laundry, P.E.D., cycle repairs, etc. and as extended to every inmate of the Ashram, to the five sisters viz. (1) JAYASHREE PRASAD, (2) ARUNASHRI PRASAD, (3) RAJYASHRI PRASAD, (4) NIVEDITA PRASAD and (5) HEMLATA PRASAD, till the completion of the trial and the final disposal of the cases pending between us.

We do not wish that the Order dated 09.12.2014 passed in Contempt Petition No.395/2014 in S.L.P. No.27620/2012 should be executed. Therefore we request the Pondicherry Police not to act on the directions issued by the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India passed in its Order dated 09.12.2014.

From:                                                                                                               15.12.2014

All residing at Ambabhikshu House, No.33, Dr. Ambedkar Street,
Kuruchikuppam, Pondicherry-605001

Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust,
“Grace Office”, No.14, Saint Gilles Street,


The Supreme Court has passed an Order dated 09.12.2014 without giving us any opportunity to present our case. This order has been passed in an interim petition while the trial in the suit has been already underway for the past 4 years and you all are trying to illegally evict us using the Supreme Court.

All of us have decided to end our lives in view of the Order dated 09.12.2014 rather than face anymore injustices, harassment and victimization, as soon as the police comes to evict us from Ambabhikshu House. We are also going to leave suicide notes naming all of you and many others concerned, all of whom are responsible for constraining us to end our lives. Our suicide notes will cause adverse repercussions on the Ashram community as a whole and most specifically on all the persons named therein.

The solution lies only with all you trustees. Today is the weekly Trust Board meeting. All of you should pass a resolution to stop the execution of the Order dated 09.12.2014 and give an undertaking to the Pondicherry Police to that effect. All of you should also give an undertaking to us stating that you are going to provide to all of us all the facilities as granted in the interim injunction petition in I.A. No.1500/2005 and forthwith issue to each of us ‘Prosperity Book’ for 2015 and restore all our facilities of medical, PED, laundry, etc. and as provided to every inmate of the Ashram, which you have illegally stopped, till the final outcome of the trial and the disposal of the pending cases. We are enclosing herewith the undertaking to be signed and given to us by all of you by 12.00 p.m. today and it is non-negotiable.

This is the last chance for all the trustees to behave with propriety, to maintain the sanctity of the Ashram, to safeguard the welfare of all its inmates and to protect the overall interest of the community.

Non-negotiable Undertaking to be given to us by the Trustees

Thursday, 11 December 2014


On 02.12.2014 after appearing with great difficulty before Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya at Supreme Court, we were constrained to return to Pondicherry. But on 04.12.2014 we sent our counter for the contempt petition filed against us by Registered Post Acknowledgment Due (RPAD) from Delhi itself, addressed to the Registrar of Supreme Court, since Justice Mukhopadhaya refused to accept our counter that day.

Now it is interesting to note that the Registrar sent us notice of appearance on 05.12.2014 which we received in the afternoon of 08.12.2014 informing us that we were supposed to appear on 09.12.2014 at 10.30 a.m. before Supreme Court. How on earth does the Registrar expect us to appear within 12 hours? Is it humanly possible, especially with our meager resources?

What is more interesting to note is that our letter dated 04.12.2014 enclosing our counter in contempt petition, posted from Delhi, did not reach the Registrar before 09.12.2014. Is the postal service for Supreme Court and for the common man different? Definitely not and therefore we can conclude that not only has the Registrar played foul but he along with Justice Gogoi and Justice Nariman have all helped perpetuate injustice.

But even more astounding fact is that this time round Justice Gogoi and Justice Nariman have illegally and unlawfully modified their own order through contempt proceedings to do the dirty work of illegal eviction for the Ashram trustees. Is that legal and permissible? The ‘suit premises’ has been now cited as specific premises viz. Ambabhikshu House wherein we are residing, without taking in account the fact that this is an interim petition not regarding any property dispute.

Moreover it can be seen that we are to be evicted but no provisions have been made either monetarily or otherwise. Is the police going to throw us on the streets and leave us to be raped and murdered by the trustees and their henchmen? Or are we supposed to commit suicide to cater to the whims and fancies of the corrupt judges of the Supreme Court and the Ashram Trustees.

Within a week all answers will be known. Let us wait and watch whether there is still a Power called God who hears and answers the prayers of the common suffering man. In any event Supreme Court has become a monument of injustice which is deteriorating exponentially everyday.

Supreme Court Final Order in Contempt Petition is produced.

AUROBINDO ASHRAM TRUST                                                        ...PETITIONER(S)



Heard learned counsel for the parties and perused the relevant material.

By Order dated 29th April, 2014 while dismissing the special leave petition filed by the respondents, this Court had granted time until 31st July, 2014 to the respondents (Petitioners in the SLP) to vacate the premises in question subject to certain conditions including the filing of an undertaking, inter alia, to the effect that the respondents will vacate the premises on or before 31st July, 2014.


In terms of the aforesaid order, the five respondents had filed their respective undertakings to vacate the premises situated at Sri Aurobindo Ashram, “ Ambabhikshu House”, No. 33, Dr.Ambedkar Street, Kuruchikuppam, Pondicherry- 605012 on or before 31st July, 2014.

The premises having not been vacated as ordered and undertaken this contempt petition has been filed. As despite service of notice, the respondents had not appeared and had not filed any counter affidavit, bailable warrant of arrest was directed to be issued against each of the respondents and the matter was posted on 2nd December, 2014. It is stated upon execution of the warrant of arrest directed by this Court, the Respondent Nos. 4 & 5 had appeared on 2nd December, 2014. For reasons that need not detain us the matter was deferred for hearing today i.e. 09.12.2014.

Not only the order of this Court dated 29th April, 2014 is clear and unambiguous, in fact, the respondents have undertaken to vacate the premises in terms of the aforesaid order on or before 31st July, 2014 and have filed their respective undertakings before this court on 7th May, 2014. Despite the above, as the respondents have not vacated the premises. Violation of this Court's order referred to above, therefore is clear. Accordingly, we direct the respondents to vacate the said premises within seven days from today failing which, we direct the jurisdictional Police Station viz. All Mahila Police Station, Pondicherry, to evict the respondents from the premises viz. Sri Aurobindo Ashram, “ Ambabhikshu House”, No. 33, Dr.Ambedkar Street, Kuruchikuppam, Pondicherry- 605012. Beyond the above, we do not consider it necessary to issue any further orders in the Contempt Petition.


The contempt petition is disposed of accordingly.

Supreme Court a National Monument of Injustice

I have been informed that Justice Ranjan Gogoi has passed a detailed order of eviction against we five sisters but he has cunningly and conveniently removed the words "suit premises" to cater to the needs of the trustees and has helped the trustees to illegally evict us. Justice Ranjan Gogoi has even ordered Mahila Police at Pondicherry to help in the eviction proceedings. As soon as the Order passed today is made available I shall post it for everybody's reference.

From the Frying Pan into the Fire into …..?

Yesterday, on 08.12.2014, in the afternoon, we received notice from the Supreme Court through RPAD informing us that we are to appear before it on 09.12.2014 in the contempt proceedings. How on earth does the court expect us to appear at such short notice is anyone’s guess!!

However what is more astounding is the fact that now the case is coming up before Justice Ranjan Gogoi, the judge who was even more hostile to our lawyers at the first instance in the SLP than Justice Mukhopadhaya. How on earth are we going to be given justice? Will it be a case of from the frying pan into the fire? I sincerely hope not because then the next stoppage for us is the crematorium.

Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya Harasses Us Once Again

On 18.11.2014 we five sisters had been arrested by the Pondicherry Police under the directions given by Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya and were released on bail on the condition that we appear before him on 02.12.2014. With great difficulty we managed to make basic arrangements and appeared before Justice Mukhopadhaya on 02.12.2014 and this is what transpired.

When our case was called on 02.12.2014 trustees’ lawyer Sanjay Parekh and on the other side Nivedita and myself appeared before Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya. As soon as we stood before him, Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya took our file and threw it aside saying that we sisters did not want him to sit on judgment for the contempt petition. He then went on to falsely accuse us that we had some lawyer hailing from Bihar who knew his family and who had written a letter against him on our behalf seeking some kind of a vengeance against him. He then admitted that he had visited Pondicherry Ashram 4 times, including the time as mentioned in the letter, but no one had ever told him anything. However since he was to retire in two months time he did not want any black spot of professional misconduct on his career and so he did not want to take up the matter on professional ethics.

When Justice Mukhopadhaya also stated that the letter accused him that his children were practicing in the Supreme Court, one of the lawyers supported him by saying that he knew of no such persons. Justice Mukhopadhaya then admitted that it was a fact that his children were practicing in the Supreme Court and not many people knew about it.

By his admission Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya not only proved his already indulged in professional misconduct, by inference he also admitted having favored the trustees throughout the SLP proceedings and the contempt proceedings and exposed their mutually beneficial relationship either through his children or by his own self.

Thereafter Sanjay Parekh, as instructed by Matriprasad and Devdip Ganguly (trustees’ henchmen), complained to Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya that we had started a website wherein we were accusing many other judges of having visited the Ashram, even the Chief Justice of Supreme Court. I responded by saying that it was true since I had myself seen these judges with my very own eyes enjoying the hospitality of the trustees and being entertained by Matriparasad and other trustees’ sycophants.

I then told Justice Muphopadhaya that a copy of the letter he was referring to had been sent to us also by RPAD and I had filed the same as part of our counter in the contempt petition. The letter had been sent by some citizens of a corruption free society. At this Justice Mukhopadhaya accused me of being a member of corrupt society. I strongly retorted that it was he who was corrupt and a member of corrupt society, illegally helping the trustees in all their wrongdoings for personal gain and glory, and that I was a citizen of a corruption free society and led an upright life.

Sanjay Parekh once again tried to belittle us by uttering nonsense against our character and how we were in the habit of filing false complaints. I vehemently denied his allegations stating that the contents of the blog spoke the truth for themselves and no amount of mudslinging would wash off the trustees’ misdeeds.

However Justice Mukhopadhaya was not inclined to give us an opportunity to be heard. I was really angry and I shouted at him that after issuing bailable arrest warrant, after having us arrested and humiliated, he cannot now deny us an opportunity to be heard and simply wash off his hands from the case on the ground that he fears black spot on his career if he continues to sit on this case. But all my heated submissions fell on deaf ears. He simply refused to listen to us.

I also requested the matter to be posted in a day or two since we were leaving by 04.12.2014 evening and that we could not prolong our stay since we had appeared at the Supreme Court with great difficulty and were facing great hardship. Justice Mukhopadhaya laughingly belittled our submission saying that we were facing no hardship and he knew fully well the life we led in the Ashram was one of comfort and decadence. We were furious and categorically informed him that he knew nothing of the hell we were going through because of the trustees’ highhandedness which they were wielding because of the support of corrupt judges likes him.

I then requested him to receive our counter in the contempt petition but he arrogantly threw away our file and called for the next case to be heard. He compounded the miscarriage of justice by even failing to receive our counter knowing fully well that we would not be able to appear whenever our case was next listed.

As the next item was called the lawyers of the other cases were shooing us away so that they could be heard and in the face of such open hostility shown to us by Justice Mukhopadhaya, insulting him by showing him our back we began to move away. Then fury at the injustice and harassment caused by Justice Mukhopadhaya overtook us and both Nivedita and myself began enumerating loudly the manner by which the trustees and these corrupt judges were victimizing us on false grounds - first that in a sexual harassment case the judges had issued eviction proceedings, second that even when there was no mention on suit premises Justice Mukhopadhaya and Gogoi had issued eviction proceedings. We also showed the pornographic chits received by us and asked all present in the court hall whether justice was being given to us. One of the lawyers reprimanded us by saying that this is not the way to behave to which I retorted that is this the way supreme court renders justice. For five minutes we let off steam in this manner exposing and highlighting the various misdeeds of the trustees who were helped by these corrupt judges and then we left the court hall with dignity.

Supreme Court Misrepresents!!!

I have just received a copy of the Order passed on 02.12.2014 by Justice Mukhopadhaya and it is astounding to note that even though we appeared as party in person, Sanjay Parikh is being shown as our lawyer. Order is produced below.

Will Supreme Court Illegally Modify Its Court Order?

On 02.12.2014 the contempt petition filed against us is listed before the Supreme Court and we are constrained to appear before the Court on that day. With great difficulty and hardship we have managed to make the very basic arrangements for our travel.

However we have come to know that apparently the trustees are going to submit before the Supreme Court that they have or will arrange alternate accommodation for the five sisters and we should be shifted thereto and get orders to that effect. If the Supreme Court is inclined to grant the trustees' prayer then it will be unlawfully modifying its own order dated 29.04.2014 through a contempt petition and this will be totally against the principles of natural justice and the prescribed law and common sense, especially since at the first instance the Supreme Court had failed to take the submissions made by the trustees in their reply to our SLP with regard to payment of expenses to us.

It may also be noted that the trustees have not made the above claim in their contempt petition filed by them and they cannot now come forward with such a plea after having illegally and forcibly implemented the order dated 29.04.2014 by stopping our food, medical and all other facilities and amenities extended to every inmate of the Ashram.

The trustees will be once again trying to cunningly gain the sympathy of the court using devious means by projecting false goodwill. We sincerely hope that at least this time round the Supreme Court will be wise enough to see through their malice and ill-intentions and will not indulge in further miscarriage of justice.

Three Cheers for Pondicherry Police!!!

Order dated 13.10.2014 passed at Hon’ble Supreme Court by Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya and Justice Bobde directing the Pondicherry Police to arrest the five sisters has been executed. This bailable arrest warrant had been issued in spite of the Registrar of the Supreme Court as well as the Chief Justice of India and Justice Mukhopadhaya having received letter from us stating that we were unable to appear since we had no means to bear the expenses of travel and lodging and food. This order of bailable arrest was totally insensitive and in gross violation of principles of natural justice. It also clearly indicated the prejudice and inclination of the judges in favor of the Ashram trustees.

On 18.11.2014, between 1.00-2.00 p.m. the Pondicherry Police headed by Mr. Ravikumar, SP (North), came with this whole team to Ambabhikshu House, wherein we sisters are residing, to execute the arrest warrant issued by the Hon’ble Supreme Court in connection to an alleged contempt of court. He was accompanied by women police personnel who arrested us and took us to the ‘All Women Police Station’. There we were shown the order and explained its consequences. After due formalities were completed we were each issued a 'Memo of Arrest' and allowed to leave the police station on the surety of two well-wishers. Thank you both, we are deeply indebted and grateful for the risks you have taken on our behalf to protect us and safeguard our well-being and interests.

We also take this opportunity to sincerely thank Mr. Ravikumar, SP (North), and his whole team of police personnel who treated us with extreme consideration and extended all possible help to facilitate the smooth execution of the procedure. This is the first time we have received such goodwill from the police and we are extremely grateful for the same. We have also assured Mr. Ravikumar that we shall make all possible efforts to present ourselves on 02.12.2014 before the Hon’ble Supreme Court.

Many Thanks to His Excellency, Sri Ravishankar Prasad-ji

Our case is a case in point where judges of Supreme Court of India – Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya and Justice R. Gogoi – have passed an inexecutable order on 29.04.2014. They have directed us to vacate “suit premises” in a case not pertaining to dispute of property and where no schedule of property has been mentioned. Moreover, to add insult to the injury, Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya and Justice Bobde have now found us guilty of contempt in the contempt proceedings filed by trustees against us and have even issued arrest warrant against we five sisters for non-compliance. This warrant has as yet to reach the hands of the Pondicherry police for execution.

Assuming that the judges and the trustees of the Ashram feel that the accommodation wherein we are presently residing is the property we sisters ought to vacate, if we moved into any other Ashram property i.e. Ashram Main Building or Nanteuil or Golconde Guest House, etc. does it tantamount to obedience? Obviously not, because the trustees, with the help of these corrupt judges, are trying to throw us out of the Ashram and that includes all the properties belonging either to the Ashram or its various trusts within trusts.

Thankfully for us, we had also marked copies of our letter dated 10.06.2014 and reminder dated 17.07.2014 to the Hon’ble Minister of Law and Justice, Sri Ravishankar Prasad-ji. And to our greatest surprise, close on the heels of the directions issued by the Home Ministry, on 30.10.2014 we have received a letter from the Ministry of Justice which speaks volumes for itself without saying anything. I hope the Supreme Court, headed by and consisting of the three musketeer bench – Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya, Justice R. Gogoi and Justice Bobde – comes up with suitable answers.

This letter is reproduced hereunder.

Our Heartfelt Gratitude to His Excellency, Sri Rajnath Singh-ji

It is with deep gratitude we wish to thank Sri Rajnath Singh-ji, the Hon’ble Home Minister of India.

As early as on 10.06.2014 and then through a reminder on 17.07.2014 we had written to the Hon’ble Home Minister informing him about our sorry plight and we had requested him to intervene since two judges of Supreme Court of India – Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya and Justice R. Gogoi – had misused their powers of superintendence, causing us great harm and unimaginable hardship.

We had made these representations as a last attempt to get some justice and mercifully for us the Hon’ble Home Minister has heard our cry of help and is making attempts to curb and curtail the misdeeds of the trustees and the compromised judges, as well as prevent miscarriage of justice for granting us relief. This is an onerous task requiring great tact, diplomacy and goodwill, and we are extremely grateful to Sri Rajnath Singh-ji who is genuinely trying to help us.

On 25.10.2014 we received two letters from the Govt. of Pondicherry intimating to us that our complaints to the Home Ministry have been forwarded to it, who in turn has directed the Collector and IGP of Pondicherry to take immediate action and send report.

On receipt of these letters on 27.10.2014 we tried to meet first the IGP but he was out of station. But we were informed that due process of law will be followed and we will be kept abreast of things.

Thereafter on 29.10.2014 we went to meet the Collector. Unfortunately he was not available in his office so we were directed to the Special Officer, who gave us a very patient and sympathetic hearing. We also met the Revenue Officer, who intimated to us that our complaint dated 10.06.2014 had reached their office already. Thereafter the Deputy Collector also heard in detail about our stressful circumstances and was considerate enough to assure us that matters would be dealt with expeditiously. We would like to thank all these Officials who have given us some hope.

We pray that the report is submitted soon and gives us much-awaited relief.

These letters are produced hereunder.

Shocking Coincidence

Just to put on record for the benefit of those who have willingly chosen to remain blindfolded or have been gullibly hoodwinked.

The coincidence of the admitted assault on Jayashree and Hemlata’s alleged pregnancy is nothing less than shocking. Jayashree was assaulted on 09/01/2001. Trustees declared Hemlata to be 6-7 months pregnant on 10/01/2001, within 24 hours. What prevented the trustees to issue her any show-cause notice and conduct an enquiry in January 2001 itself for violating the rule of the Ashram?
  • -          Tresor Nursing Home is a personal and private nursing home of Chitra Sen on the property belonging to the Ashram.
  • -          A record of every ashramite who visits the premises is maintained and submitted to Chitra Sen who submits it to Dr. Dilip Kumar Dutta, in charge of all the medical facilities in the Ashram.
  • -          So even if I had been accused of destroying the so-called “evidence”, why did Dr. Dilip Kumar Dutta fail to produce the copy of the report which should have been submitted by Chitra Sen?
  • -          How did Dr. Dilip Kumar Dutta, being a senior doctor, miss this advance stage of Hemlata’s alleged pregnancy when she was meeting him on a daily basis for demanding justice for Jayashree’s assault?
  • -          When the trustees accused Hemlata of being 6-7 months pregnant, they did not need any medical certification required to confirm it, a profile photo would have done the trick. In her small frame of body where was she supposed to hide this advance stage of pregnancy! How come it went unnoticed even by the married women and mothers in her department at “Embroidery Department”!
  • -          When a medical document is stolen or destroyed in a nursing home, its management reports it to the police. What stopped Chitra Sen to lodge a police complaint against me and why didn’t the Ashram trustees issue me a show cause notice with regard to this incident? But this most important question still remains unanswered for obvious reasons, there was no pregnancy and therefore no destruction of medical evidence.
The fact is that the trustees were scared by the threat of the supporters of Krishna Chandra who had said that they would do a mass walkout of the Ashram Dining Room if any disciplinary action was taken against Krishna Chandra. So to suppress, confuse, mislead and misrepresent the incident of the assault on Jayashree, the trustees and their henchmen started the rumor about Hemlata’s alleged pregnancy.

Krishna Belliappa, who volunteered for causing Hemlata’s alleged pregnancy and as stated by the trustees, was never expelled from the Ashram. In fact in Menon’s enquiry (third enquiry by trustees’ count) he was examined as trustees’ witness and declared that he was not responsible for the alleged pregnancy. He not only enjoys till date all the facilities and amenities provided by the Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust, he has been bestowed with power, position, money and women.

The two Krishnas were and are still being patronized by the trustees, since the trustees themselves are all aspiring to become Krishnas and being constantly entertained by the willing gopis of the Ashram. Therefore from April 2001, since we sisters revolted against this system of entertainment, the vindictive trustees have left no stone unturned to harass, victimize, falsely accuse us, defame us and overall make our lives thoroughly miserable and unlivable. What a spiritual justice!

Mystery of missing evidence from Tresor Nursing Home

When one stands against misdeeds in an institution, one must be extremely strong to withstand any mud-slinging. 

The trustees started slanderous attacks on us after we five sisters decided to stand together against the inhuman and brutal assault on my eldest sister Jayashree by Krishna Chandra (a non-ashramite in 2001) on 09/01/2001 in the premises of the Ashram Dining Room during her working hours and in the presence of Veda Prakash Johar (Ashram trustee and in-charge of Dining Room).
  • -          Trustees, especially Dr. Dilip Kimar Dutta, prohibited us to lodge a police complaint regarding the assault on Jayashree on 09/01/2001. We were asked to abide by the rules of the Ashram as stated in the “Prosperity Book”.
  • -          Hemlata was punished for requesting action to be taken against the assaulter Krishna Chandra. Her food, at the Ashram Dining Room counter-service, was stopped and she was only allowed to take home food through carrier-service.
  • -          Arati Das Gupta, (a teacher, a sports’ captain and Manoj Das Gupta’s sister and prime advisor) verbally informed Hemlata that her sports facilities had been stopped but did not give any reason for the same.
  • -          Hemlata and Jayashree approached Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya, the director of sports in the Ashram, for clarification and Gangaram gave them a handwritten note saying that Hemlata’s name had been removed from the ‘Prosperity List’ therefore her sports facilities had been stopped.
  • -          Breakfast was not served to the five sisters at the Ashram Dining Room on 23/03/2001 although Hemlata had been allowed to eat in the Dining Room on 22/03/2001.
  • -         Trustees publicly circulated a defamatory letter about Hemlata, without having first given her a copy of this letter marked ‘Strictly Personal and Confidential’. She received this letter only after she had filed her Civil Suit in O.S. No. 215/2001 challenging her illegal expulsion where no show-cause notice had been served to her, much less an enquiry conducted.
On the first hearing of O.S. No. 215/2001, the judge had asked trustees’ lawyer C.S.Narasimhan to produce evidence for the serious allegations made by them. This lawyer of the trustees replied that he would produce them soon. This “soon” has yet to come even after 14 years.

After Hemlata had filed her suit for defamation citing the five trustees along with their three henchmen, as accused before the criminal court, the trustees were demented with rage and went completely haywire.

My questioning the sudden visits of P.P. Raghavachary and C.S. Narasimhan to Tresor Nursing Home led to the illegal termination of my work without assigning any reasons. Later, only through court papers I learnt that I was accused of destroying the alleged evidences relating to Hemlata’s advanced stage of pregnancy. It was rather shocking. Trustees and their henchmen spread these news (Hemlata’s alleged pregnancy and my alleged destruction of “medical” evidence) like a wild forest-fire and everyone believed them in good faith because pregnancy is a frequently recurring occurrence in the Ashram.

Trustees made me a scapegoat to safeguard their interests, especially because I had seen the diary maintained by Chitra Sen recording several terminations of pregnancies of ashram related cases at Tresor Nursing Home. So easy… so very convenient!!!


As a last recourse to get justice we have written a letter to the President of India. We hope that at least the Hon'ble President will intervene and help us. Let us wait and watch.

Madhumita Banerjee covers up trustees’ misdeeds

Madhumita Banerjee, a Punjabi woman married to a Bengali, runs an NGO called “Disha” in Pondicherry. She is a very close associate of the trustees and Matriprasad. As she is associated with various political groups in Pondicherry, trustees have always entertained her to get their work done. The trustees used her well in our case also with regard to the investigation conducted by National Women Commission.

I met her for the first time on 25.06.2006 when she visited Ambabhikshu House to canvass for her party during Pondicherry Municipal Election. 

It was a Sunday evening at about 6.45pm. She along with her friend knocked at my door asking to vote for them. Just for fun I began chitchatting with Madhumita and asked her what her party would do if it won. Her reply shocked me. She said that she has always helped ashramites and the trustees. She informed me that she was the go-between person between the trustees and the State women Commission (SCW) and the National Women Commission (NCW) in the complaint given by the five sisters.

Wow! This was a revelation to me so I goaded her further for information. I asked her what she knew about the five sisters’ case and how she had helped the trustees.

Her idea about our complaint to NCW was vague as she had only a cursory glance of the file which had been submitted by our lawyer at the Chief Secretariat, Pondicherry, to Mrs. Poornima Advani on 5/10/2004 in the morning. But promptly she had called the trustee Dr. Dilip Kumar Dutta and handed over a copy of this file to Matriprasad.

She also boasted to me that she had visited Delhi with the Chairperson of State Women Commission Mrs. Kamalini to convince the chairperson of National Women Commission Mrs. Poornima Advani that the Ashram was free from all vices. She also commented that these 5 sisters were psycho-cases.

After she had finished her story, I asked her whether I appeared to be a psycho-case. She replied “NO”. Then I showed her the original pornographic cartoons received by me. Only then she realized her faux pas and asked me who I was. When I told her that I was one of the five sisters whose name she did not even know and much less about our sexual harassment, she turned white. By then my third sister also joined me. 
Since Madhumita Bannerjee was caught red-handed, without apologizing to us she hurriedly left Ambabhikshu House with her political friend without visiting any other rooms. But on a parting note she said that men in the Ashram were bad and abusive.

After several months, Madhumita Banerjee, who had now become richer by trustees’ grace, threatened me openly with kidnap, assault and even rape. She categorically advised me to keep quiet about her dirty role. What a request!

I reported her insulting and obnoxious behavior as well as her threat to me to one of her political colleagues, who heard me out sympathetically. This colleague approached and briefed the senior politician, who in turn took Madhumita Bannerjee to task. Only then she toned down since she had been given the choice to either quit the party or continue with her behavior.

What a nightmare trustees had created for everyone!

Blatant Miscarriage of Justice by Some Corrupt Supreme Court Judges

Together with the active help, support and willful wrong intervention of some judges of the Supreme Court of India, the trustees have legally harassed us using the backdoor entry under Article 227 of the Constitution of India. Justice Sudhanshu Jyoti Mukhopadhaya, Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice S.A. Bobde. A gist of their misuse of discretionary power of supervision is cited below.

We filed S.L.P. No.27620/2012 against the illegal order of eviction dated 03.08.2012 passed by Justice S. Manikumar. Our SLP was part-heard by Justice Gokhale and Justice Nijjar, who granted a stay over the High Court Order. Suddenly our SLP was preponed, under mysterious circumstances, by 1 ½ months from 15.07.2014 to 29.09.2014. 
  1. The transfer of our S.L.P. No.27620/2012 from a bench which had part-heard the case to a bench comprising of Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Sudhanshu Jyoti Mukhopadhya, which had never heard the case, is totally against all legal norms, especially in view of the fact that neither party had made any written submission praying for transfer. Justice R. Gogoi and Justice S.J. Mukhopadhya should not have entertained S.L.P. No.27620/2012 under this circumstance.
  2. Justice Gogoi and Justice Mukhopadhya failed to give a fair opportunity to us to hear our case but showed open hostility to our lawyers, to the extent of even threatening our lawyers.
  3. In fact Justice S. J. Mukhopadhya had even visited Sri Aurobindo Ashram and the Grace Office of the trustees, as he himself claimed in the open court. Therefore on professional grounds he should not have heard S.L.P. No.27620/2012, much less pass perverse orders in his first ever hearing.
  4. Justice Gogoi and Justice Mukhopadhya did not give any reason to arrive at the conclusion that they came to. After threatening our lawyers, they simply passed an order under two minutes, without realizing the civil implications involved and the grievous consequences resulting in human rights violation.
  5. Justice Gogoi and Justice Mukhopadhya ought to have abstained from passing any order of this nature, especially in view of the fact that the suit in O.S. No.409/2005 has been undergoing trial since the past 4 years. They ought to have waited for the result of the trial before passing their order of illegal eviction on an interim petition granting us food, shelter, medical, clothing and other basics.
  6. Justice Gogoi and Justice Mukhopadhya violated our fundamental rights as citizens of India with regard to our food, shelter, clothing and a right to live with dignity, especially in view of the fact that as inmates of Sri Aurobindo Ashram we receive no money. They directed us to be thrown head-first into a world where we cannot survive and are more likely to be further harassed by the henchmen of the trustees, with possibility of even molestation, rape and murder.
  7. Justice R. Gogoi and Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya have passed order dated 29.04.2014 directing us to vacate “suit premises” in a case in which we have challenged the impugned report regarding sexual harassment fabricated by the trustees. The suit contains no description of suit premises, therefore their order dated 29.04.2014 is null and void and non-executable.

We filed contempt proceedings against the trustees because they stopped our  facilities of food, medical and all other basic needs, necessities and amenities. We sent this contempt petition through RPAD to Justice R. Gogoi and Justice S.L. Mukhopadhaya. These judges have also received our petition on 05.08.2014 but have failed to take it up and give us relief.

Instead on 13.09.2014 Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya visited the Ashram at Pondicherry and enjoyed trustees’ hospitality. Thereafter on 15.09.2014, just two days later, he initiated contempt proceedings in the contempt petition filed by the trustees and obliged the trustees. We sent our letter to the Registrar of the Supreme Court intimating that we have no means to appear before the court. This letter was received by the Registrar and is clearly mentioned in his office report dated 10.10.2014. The contempt petition filed by the trustees against us was posted on 13.10.2014.
  1. Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya and Justice S. Bobde ought not to have entertained the contempt petition filed by the trustees since the Order dated 29.04.2014 directs vacating of “suit premises” in a case which contains no description of the alleged “suit premises”.
  2. In spite of having office order dated 10.10.2014 placed before Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya and Justice S. Bobde, they refused to accept our plea of no means to appear, without even verifying from independent sources its truth.
  3. Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya and Justice S. Bobde issued bailable arrest warrant without going into the merits of the case and the executability of the Order dated 29.04.2014 passed in S.L.P. No.27620/2012.
  4. Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya and Justice S. Bobde have misused their powers of discretion and superintendence under Article 227 on an interim petition, while the suit is undergoing trial and directed arrest without going into the facts and ascertaining the truth.

Blatant Misuse of Powers under Article 227 by Some Corrupt Madras High Court Judges

Together with the active help, support and willful wrong intervention of two judges of the Madras High Court, the trustees have legally harassed us using the backdoor entry under Article 227 of the Constitution of India. These judges are Justice K. Venkataraman and Justice S. Manikumar. A gist of their misuse of discretionary power of supervision is cited below.
  1. Justice K. Venkataraman wrongly entertained C.R.P. No.3314/2007, filed under Article 227 by the trustees on an interim petition granting food, shelter, clothing, medical and all other basic needs and necessities of life. He passed perverse order on 29.01.2008 containing reliefs neither asked by the trustees nor by us.
  2. Justice K. Venkataraman wrongly entertained M.P. No.1/2008 in C.R.P. No.3314/2007, again filed by trustees for clarification, using for a second time Article 227. He indiscriminately exercised his powers of supervision for a second time and passed perverse order dated 04.08.2008 illegally modifying his first order dated 29.01.2008, containing reliefs neither asked by the trustees nor by us.
  3. Justice K. Venkataraman wrongly entertained M.P. No.2/2008 in C.R.P. No.3314/2007, again filed by trustees for a second clarification, for a third time, again using Article 227. He indiscriminately exercised his powers of supervision for a third time and passed perverse exparte order dated 21.06.2010 illegally modifying his first two orders dated 29.01.2008 and 04.08.2008, containing reliefs neither asked by the trustees nor by us.
  4. Justice K. Venkataraman ought to have issued notices to us either through court or directed the trustees to issue private notices to us, in view of the fact that our lawyer had given up Vakalat. He unjustly passed an order dated 21.06.2010 in our absence without giving us a just and fair opportunity to defend ourselves.
  5. Having appointed suo motto an Advocate Commissioner, Justice K. Venkataraman failed to base his order dated 21.06.2010 on the report of the Advocate Commissioner. He waited for about 1 ½ years from the date of submission of the report of the Advocate Commissioner to pass his order dated 21.06.2010. He passed exparte order after having unjustly eschewed the line contained in the report that clearly indicated the harassment and victimization caused by Ashram trustees to us.
  6. The orders passed by Justice K. Venkataraman dated 29.01.2008, 04.08.2008 and 21.06.2010, using his discretionary power of supervision under Article 227, are perverse, bad in law and were illegally modified under guise of clarification to metamorphose into an eviction proceeding which was not the prayer of the trustees in any of their petitions in the first place.
  7. Justice K. Venkataraman and Justice S. Manikumar wrongly entertained C.R.P. No.4219/2010 filed by the trustees, once again under Article 227. They blatantly misused discriminatory supervisory powers and admitted the CRP since the trustees had failed to prefer an appeal at the Pondicherry Appellate Authority and had jumped the necessary legal steps before approaching High Court.
  8. Justice K. Venkataraman and Justice S. Manikumar wrongly entertained C.R.P. No.4219/2010 filed by the trustees under Article 227, on an interim petition restoring food and shelter to us since the third party had failed to comply with the Order dated 21.06.2010.
  9. Justice S. Manikumar passed perverse order dated 03.08.2012 in C.R.P. No.4219/2010 disregarding the principles of natural justice, balance of convenience and facts and circumstances of the case. He based his order dated 03.08.2012 by further modifying the three illegal orders already passed in C.R.P. No.3314 of 2007 dated 29.01.2008, 04.08.2008 and 21.06.2010 by Justice K. Venkataraman, by colluding with him.
  10. Justice S. Manikumar passed final order after more than one year (containing two summer vacations) of hearing the final arguments. He failed to appreciate the case in C.R.P. No.4219/2010 on its own merits because the facts and circumstances and cause of action were different from those in C.R.P. No.3314/2010 and deserved impartial and independent evaluation of the case.
  11. Since trial in O.S. No.409/2005 had already begun and was underway, Justice K. Venkataraman and Justice S. Manikumar ought to have waited for the final outcome of the trial before passing orders dated 21.06.2010 and 03.08.2012. They wrongly entertained revisions on interim injunction petitions, exercised discriminate supervisory powers under Article 227 and passed outright eviction orders, a prayer neither made by the trustees nor by us, resulting in an absolutely blatant miscarriage of justice.

Arrest Warrant not yet Received informs Pondicherry Police

The last weekend in the “Times of India” Bosco Dominque reported that arrest warrant has been issued against we five sisters for disobeying the Supreme Court Order. He reports that and I quote

The court refused to buy the argument of the sisters that they were ready to appear before it but had no money to pay for their tickets, boarding and lodging.”

Was Bosco present in the Supreme Court or is he simply vomiting the cock-and-bull story of the trustees and indulging in one side reporting? It is also pertinent to note that the trustees are not highlighting the fact that Jayashree was assaulted, an event accepted by them in their various court pleadings. Bosco incorrectly reports the beginning of litigation only from 2002 after Mr.Menon’s enquiry was initiated and completed. But the truth is that our litigation began in 2001 because Jayashree was assaulted by Krishna Chandra (a non-ashramite) and because we protested since no relief was given to her. The trustees rewarded the assaulter as well as his sister by inducting them as inmates, whereas we have been facing 14 years of harassment, victimization, sexual harassment and various other indignities. What a great sense of justice of the trustees!

Anyhow after reading this news item, on 20/10/2014 Arunashri and I met the IGP of Pondicherry to learn about the arrest procedures. IGP Mr. Praveer Ranjan was kind enough to give us an audience. When we asked him about the arrest procedure he directed us to his secretary Mr. Rajashankar, who informed us that till date no arrest warrant has as yet been received by the police. He informed us that in the absence of the warrant it was difficult to say what is expected of the police. But he assured us that if arrest is made the procedure will be followed as per the directions issued and that no arrest will be made after 6 pm.

I reiterate the fact that we sisters have not disobeyed the Supreme Court Order dated 29.04.2014 passed in S.L.P.No.27620/2012 by Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya and Justice R. Gogoi and no contempt can be held against us since their order directs us to vacate ‘suit premises’ in a case where there is no suit mentioned property. How can eviction be ordered in a suit which challenges the malafide report fabricated by the trustees in order to hush up our complaints of sexual harassment? This tantamounts to further victimization of the victims especially because some of our complaints form part of W.P.No.695/2014 pending before the Chief Justice of India and also because the case is being tried for the past four years. It seems as if the Supreme Court is incapable of rendering justice to the detriment of the victims.

Let us wait and watch what the future holds for us.

Trustees Have a Bad Habit of Initiating False Contempt Proceedings

These are the contempt proceedings initiated by the trustees against the five sisters:
  1. Contempt No.718/2002 filed in O.S. No.253/2001 September 2002. No contempt was recorded against my four elder sisters. (See posting dated 24.01.2003)
  2. Contempt No.1483/2010 filed in M.P. No.2/2008 in C.R.P. No.3314/2007 dated 21.06.2010. No contempt was recorded. Justice Manikumar took exception to our use of word ‘illegal’ when mentioning about Justice Venkataraman’s order. Justice Manikumar said that how can an order passed by a court of law be illegal, knowing fully well that illegal was an appropriate description. We apologized unconditionally for our use of this word illegal vis-à-vis high court order. But no contempt was recorded against we five sisters. The trustees’ claim to the contrary can be clearly seen by a simply perusal of the order.
  3. Contempt No.395/2014 filed in S.L.P. No.27620/2012 dated 29.04.2014. Arrest warrant has been wrongly ordered by Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya on 13.10.2014 since

  • Order dated 29.04.2014 was passed by Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya and Justice Ranjan Gogoi without following principles of natural justice and by misusing the discretionary powers under Article 227 of the Constitution in an interim petition, especially when trial had already began in the suit for the past 4 years.
  • Order dated 29.04.2014 is non-executable. It directs the five sisters to vacate ‘suit premises’ in a case of sexual harassment where there is no description of ‘suit premises’.
  • Office order dated 10.10.2014 states that we have received a letter from five sisters where the sisters have mentioned their inability to appear since they have no means. In spite of going through our letter and office order, Justice Mukhopadhaya has failed to take our plea into account.

We have to wait and watch whether this time round the trustees will manage to get us punished for an act of contempt we did not commit !!!

Tresor Nursing Home – Secret Refuge of Trustees’ Immorality

Tresor Nursing Home and Chitra Sen are synonymous in the Ashram community.

Ms. Chitra Sen is an old inmate, teacher & sports captain of the Ashram and heads the Advisory Committee Board of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust. She also allots work to the inmates and devotees. She also listens to their grievances without any authority to act on her own accord, in other words she is a puppet of the trustees.

Tresor Nursing Home, a unit of Swasthya Trust, is situated on a property belonging to Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust - “Tresor House”. The nursing home is her private and personal business. She has boldly voiced this her before appropriate authority.

SAAT has its own private nursing home on the beach road, dispensary, pharmacy, various therapy centers spread all over the white town and maintained by it for the well-being of its inmates, beneficiaries and devotees.

When crores of rupees has already been invested for this super-infrastructure, why is an elderly ashramite, juggling so many responsibilities, allowed to run her own private business with the blessings of the SAAT trustees, especially on an Ashram property? The answer is very simple but shocking.

Pregnancy is an accepted, normal and almost inevitable incident in the Ashram whether it’s a maid-servant, paid worker in a farmland or an ashramite. This fact is shocking but not so to the old ashramites who have witnessed pregnancies, abortions and childbirths in the Ashram. The women range maid-servant to affluent ladies.

The Mother in Her wisdom always protected women in the Ashram in every way. Stories are also told about how the Mother treated these cases. She permitted some for undergoing abortion and requested some to go for child delivery at the cost of the Ashram. Even today some of these lady-inmates are still alive and well respected in the ashram community along with their off-springs.

Unlike the era of the Mother when She guided and took the responsibility of each ashramite in Her spiritual wisdom, the present trustees (not selected by the Mother) indulge in every activity contrary to the aim and ideal of the Ashram. They are not only aware of the prevailing sexual activities, but enjoy and support the same openly.

Sexual advances are a common pass time in the Ashram and every woman has her own story. Sexual gratifications are procured to entertain VIPs, to become an Ashramite and to be in good books of the trustees. In case these so called “sadhikas” become pregnant trustees of SAAT take good care of them by providing them with appropriate medications, treatment and facilities.

This is where Tresor Nursing Home and Chitra Sen play their secret grand roles. Tresor Nursing Home takes care of all pregnancy cases of the Ashram in the name of D&C. Thus the image of these women remains clean in the Ashram community. But Chitra Sen maintains a comprehensive report about it for the benefit of the trustees of SAAT.

Tresor Nursing Home offers multifaceted approach to well-being and treatment, thus it is open to all including ashramites. Once a report of ‘services rendered’ is submitted, the Ashram dispensary reimburses Tresor Nursing Home for treatments extended its inmates.

You may wonder why I am washing dirty linen in public. Here are the astounding facts.
  1. When the assault on Jayashree took place in the Ashram Dining Room on 09/01/2001 I was working as the secretary to Chitra Sen helping her in the Ashram related work. I had raised questions and objections before Chitra Sen with regard to Jayashree’s assault. But she always maintained a hostile convenient silence. Once I had also heard her talk over phone to a psychiatrist called Dr. Unni, for Jayashree’s treatment. When I squarely challenged her she kept quiet. So I knew something was fishy.
  2. After Hemlata filed her civil suit in O.S. No.215/2001, i.e. 23/03/2001, a defamatory letter was sent to her. When she issued a legal notice to the trustees, they began scrambling for evidence. Mr. PP Raghavachary (inmate lawyer of SAAT) and Mr. C.S.Narasimhan suddenly began visiting frequently Tresor Nursing Home. When I asked them the reason for their visits they kept mum. In fact, every time they turned up I was asked to leave the premises under some pretext.
  3. On 03/04/2001 Hemlata filed her criminal complaint for defamation against the trustees and their henchmen, which they came to know about even before receipt of court-summons. The trustees were enraged at being cited as accused so they issued illegal backdated show cause notice to my three elder sisters and to me. The show cause notice indicated that we had already been found guilty, though no enquiry had been conducted, and why trustees should punish us.
  4. Thus on the 7th of April 2001, trustees decided to punish without even giving me the chance to defend myself. Chitra Sen simply asked me to stop working without assigning any reason. I was forced to hand over the office keys, which I did with a covering letter asking the reason for stopping my work. Till date that letter remains unanswered.
  5. On the same date the trustees of SAAT pulled in Tresor Nursing Home and associated it with Hemlata’s alleged pregnancy in order to hush up Jayashree’s assault on 09/01/2001. This we came to know through the Reply Notice issued answering her Legal Notice to the trustees.
A simple protest by us against the assault on Jayashree took such an ugly turn only because a few can stand firm against injustice. This hurt the ego of the male chauvinistic trustees and their henchmen. Today trustees and their henchmen (ashramites, ex-students of SAICE & trustees’ well wishers) beat the drum falsely alleging that Hemlata was in an advance stage of pregnancy of 6-7 months. She violated the so-called golden rule of the Ashram and therefore must be expelled from the Ashram. But, then why no one raised any voice against Krishna Belliappa who became an Ashramite in 2001 and who was not expelled. While Hemlata’s character is repeatedly tainted, no action is taken against Krishna Belliappa who enjoys the status of the ashramite till date.

Why did the trustees associate his name with Hemlata? The reason is so stupid that it is laughable.

In the Ashram everybody is only known by their first name. When Krishna Chandra assaulted Jayashree, trustees tried to suppress this fact since the Oriya threatened to walk out of Dining Room en mass. Since the Dining Room primarily functions on Oriya strength, this boycott would have been a big headache for the trustees. In order to confuse which Krishna was involved, Krishna Pandya being too old, sincere unaccommodating, Krishna Belliappa, the newly inducted ashramite was picked upon. Obviously he did not toe the line for free. He was elevated to the elite circle of conspirators and given full freedom to become a womanizer like his mentor Manoj Das Gupta.

This was corroborated by the fact when Jayashree, Arunashri and Hemlata went to the Police Station. A senior police officer Mr. Anand Mohan seeing them in the police station pointed at Jayashree and asked which Krishna had made her pregnant?

With regard to Krishna - Mahabharata war ensued because of one Sri Krishna. What is going to be the fate of the Ashram trustees and their well wishers when they have heavily relied upon these two Krishnas?

A Bird’s Eye-view of Suit O.S. No.409/2005

After issuing show cause notice to us, which did not mention any charges leveled against us, and without furnishing a complete copy of A.V. Nagarajan’s report dated 10.01.2005 (which also did not contain any specific charges leveled against us), the trustees began issuing and pasting expulsion letters on our doors. We were given no opportunity to defend ourselves. (See details on posting dated 07.02.2005). The dates of events which occurred thereafter are highlighted hereunder. 
  1. 25.04.2005 - O.S. No.409/2005 filed before Principal District Munsif at Pondicherry
  2. 28.04.2005 – Exparte interim injunction granting status quo is given to us in I.A. No.1500/2005 in O.S. No.409/2005 by an upright honest judicial officer, Mr. Krishnasamy.
  3. 10.06.2005 – Interim injunction is made absolute after a thorough enquiry. We sincerely thank Mr. Krishnasamy (Judge of PDM) for his unwavering rendering of justice.
  4. 01.07.2005 – Trustees disobey order of injunction and fail to provide ‘Prosperity Items’, which is given to every inmate to meet their daily and monthly needs since we do not receive any money.
  5. Contempt Petition No.3782/2005 filed by us against trustees since they disobey court order. The contempt petition is still pending. (See posting on )
  6. Trustees prefer appeal in C.M.A. No. 35/2005 at Pondicherry against the interim order dated 10.06.2005. Trustees’ Appeal is dismissed on 30.01.2007. Trial Court Order dated 10.06.2005 is upheld since the balance of convenience is in our favor.
  7. Trustees file C.R.P. No.3314/2007 before Madras High Court challenging dismissal of their appeal on 30.01.2007. Order dated 29.01.2008 is passed. Justice K. Venkataraman directs us to reside in some other accommodation. We request for accommodation at ‘Golconde Guest House’.
  8. Trustees file M.P. No.1/2008 in C.R.P. No. 3314/2007 for clarification of the order dated 29.01.2008 since they do not wish to accommodate us at ‘Golconde Guest House’. Order dated 04.08.2008 is passed and under the guise of clarification Justice K. Venkataraman modifies his own Order dated 29.01.2008. As directed we ask to be accommodated at ‘International Guest House’ and the ‘Sea Side Guest House’. (See posting on )
  9. Trustees file M.P. No.2/2008 in C.R.P. 3314/2007, a second clarification petition, seeking to further modify the already modified order dated 04.08.2008.
  10. Justice K. Venkataraman suo motto appoints an Advocate Commissioner. He directs the trustees and the sisters to state alternate accommodation which he will come and inspect and impartially judge the suitability of the accommodation. Advocate Commissioner comes to Pondicherry, visits the mentioned accommodations and submits his report on 23.12.2008 to the Madras High Court. His report is totally unfavorable to the trustees and completely exposes the harassment which the trustees are causing us. (See posting on )
  11. The trustees are in a dilemma because of the Advocate Commissioner’s report and pressurize Justice K. Venkataraman to ignore the same. Justice K. Venkataraman has already been so thoroughly comprise that he blindly obeys the trustees. We write a letter to the Chief Justice of Madras High Court – Mr. Justice Gokhale and seek to transfer our case. (See posting on 14.10.2014)
  12. Justice Gokhale ignores our complaint and orders Jusice K. Venkataraman to continue with the case. By now Justice K. Venkatarman has become openly hostile and begins to needlessly insult and berate our lawyer. With a heavy heart we request our lawyer to give up Vakalatnama. We were assured that notice will reach us through court and we can come and represent our case ourselves. No such thing happened.
  13. On 21.06.2010, 1 ½ years after Advocate Commissioner has submitted his report, Justice Venkataraman passes exparte order in M.P.No.2/2008 in C.R.P. No.3314/2007 directing us to stay at ‘Jenny Working Women’s Hostel’. As per report of Advocate Commissioner this hostel has no vacancy.
  14. On 22.07.2010 using Pondicherry police to intimidate us, Matriprasad, Maya Khandelwal, Jahnavi Ravikanti, Purushottam Kothari and others assault Jayashree and Hemlata and deny us food at Ashram Dining Room. (see posting dated )
  15. On 27.10.2010, more than three months later our food is restored at through I.A. No.2094/2010 in O.S. No.409/2005, through the Pondicherry court by Mrs. R. Vasanthi, Hon'ble Judge of PDM. We wish to thank yet another upright judge who did not succumb to pressures from her superiors and trustees.
  16. Trustees file revision in C.R.P. No. 4219/2010 challenging order dated 27.10.2010 in I.A. No.2094/2010 in O.S. No.409/2005, as well as Contempt Petition No.1483/2010, in Madras High Court. Justice K. Venkatarman is again presiding over these matters. With great difficulty our lawyers manage to transfer the case to the court of Justice S. Manikumar. Matter is extensively argued on both sides in April 2011. Then on 03.08.2012, more than 1 year later, Justice Manikumar passes order of eviction without stating any reason for the same.
  17. The five sisters challenge this unjust order dated 03.08.2012 and file S.L.P. No. 27620/2012. Stay is granted by Justice Nijjar and Justice Gokhale.
  18. Thereafter from 15.07.2014 the matter is suddenly preponed by 1 ½ months to 29.04.2014 when it comes up before a new bench and a non-executable order is passed on 29.04.2014 by Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya and Justice Ranjan Gogoi. (see postings dated )
  19. The trustees file Contempt Petition No.395/2014 and arrest warrant has been issued on 13.10.2014 by Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya and Justice Bobde.

The trial in O.S. No.409/2005 has been underway for more about 4 years. Trustees are delaying and protracting the proceedings of the trial and till have been fined on two occasion for failing to continue with the trial. They paid fine of Rs.2,000/- each time.

It is most pertinent to note here that our case contains no description of any property. It is a case challenging the impugned report which had been fabricated to hush up, suppress, mislead, misguide and misrepresent our complaints of sexual harassment. Neither the we nor the trustees ever sought relief of eviction in any of the above-mentioned multiple proceedings. But astoundingly eviction has been ordered in a sexual harassment case and victims are further victimized by the above-mentioned judges of the Madras High Court and Supreme Court. Has justice now become blind and corrupt and willfully chooses to remain blindfolded?

Justice K. Venkataraman, Justice S. Manikumar, Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya, Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Bobde have all misused their discretionary powers under Article 227 of the Constitution. In spite of having written countless letters, unfortunately no one has as yet had the courage to take action against these judges and make them answerable for the gross miscarriage of justice.
