The journalistic treatment to this book is apparent in variety of ways—the way opinions and viewpoints are expressed, the research perspective, news framework and the attempt in keeping a controversial dimension all through the book. The writer has focused the attention on factual conciseness.
For me and people whose lives were touched by the phenomenon called Osho, the accounts by this writer is a genuinely valuable read that open important questions. This account raises one big question as to why Osho’s talent is being squandered in the egoic quest by some of his own near and dear followers. Though this book stir’s up controversy, it does not do it by supporting a specific position.
The other books worth reading are:
- The God that failed - Hugh Milne
This is an insider’s view and feels like an honest testimony of charismatic Osho and the authoritarian hierarchical empire he built around himself.
- Don't Kill Him!: The Story of My Life with Bhagwan Rajneesh : a Memoir - Ma Anand Sheela
This book is no memoir but her version where she justifies her stand—full of contradictions but shedding light on a different truth—of building an ashram combining capitalism with spirituality. It's all about her contradictions, accusing Rajneesh for a number of failings but still loving him.
- The Promise of Paradise - Satya Bharti Franklin
This is a true memoir of a woman sannyasin who joined the Rajneesh cult, giving I feel a true experience of the beginning and not so pleasant end. You will probably understand why so many educated people from all over the world got attracted to the Rajneesh phenomenon.
Abhay is an excellent writer and has taken care to pace the book properly-the biography of Rajneesh/Osho; then a brief background of how Rajneesh tried to settle down in the US and finally back to Pune for the second time. The character build up of all the players & their quest for power was unfolded gradually.
The best thing was that all the evidence was backed up with affidavits & the book did not just become a flight of fancy. There is a lot of research that went on for 20+ years and this labor of love is a must read by all Puneites!
