I know.  I was asking *Vaj* how he could claim
Chopra was "a fine man with great integrity" when
he himself had been the one to post the claim about
the Ayurved book in a way that sounded as though he
disapproved, and he himself had suggested that what
Chopra was quoted as saying about the Beatles being
thrown out was "movement revisionism."

In other words, I was asking about an apparent
contradiction on Vaj's part.

Er, it wasn't Chopra's integrity I was questioning
on this point, nor MMY's for that matter.

For the record, I've never heard anybody make this
claim before.  I've heard people say the Beatles were
supposedly doing drugs there, but not that this was
what had caused the breakup (at least not in the sense
that they were thrown out for doing it; I think I
recall someone having suggested that they had been
hallucinating the alleged incident with MMY and the
female follower).

, it doesn't jibe with

It seems, from what the article says, that Chopra has
some kind of guest editor position with the India Times,
and that his remarks about the Beatles were made for the
article that was posted here.
