The whole issue of K's relationship with Rosalind came in print only
when Sloss (Rosalind's daughter) wrote the book.
There was protracted litigation between Krishnamurti's New Foundation
/Trustees /California Atty General vs Rajagopal and the trustees of the
old Krishnamurti Trusts which arose when Rajagopal who controlled the
old trusts refused to account for the money donated for K's work. During
the course of litigation, Rosalind and Rajagopal tried to blackmail K
saying that they are going to bring this issue into the case. Some of
K's statements came about on this issue when the litigation went on.
