This will be another brief one.
In March/April 1990 I spent 6 weeks in India doing research for
the book. Starting in Bombay (Asiatic Society Library) then to
New Delhi (Nehru Lib. and Museum) and Jammu (J&K State
Archives). From there, the long, long train ride south to
Adyar, where I spent the most time. Also a side trip to
Pondicherry. All this is reported at the end of ISM.
I wouldn't speculate on the present locales or IDs of the
Masters but my research strongly indicates that Darjeeling was
completely a blind and that neither M. nor K.H. were anywhere
near there-- K.H. from Amritsar, M. from Jammu.
I met J.M. in London at a conference. She wrote a piece on
Bailey for TH some years ago-- I'll try to find the reference.
I would have loved going to Amritsar, the Golden Temple, and
doing research there, but it was off limits at the time so I
just went through Punjab by train.
Til next time
