Lives in the Shadow with J.
It chronicles aspects of the long, intimate, and ultimately contentious relationship of the author’s family with the Indian philosopher Jiddu Krishnamurti. The author’s father Rajagopalacharya Desikacharya commonly Tye. Rajagopal, — and mother Rosalind Rajagopal —were friends and associates of Jiddu Krishnamurti — for four decades, but their personal krishnmaurti business relationships eventually soured permanently.
The book is best known for bringing to light details about Krishnamurti’s private life, especially his long-term extramarital affair with Rajagopal Sloss’ mother. The revelations were met with surprise and consternation by Krishnamurti adherents,  and generated a measure of adverse publicity; a Krishnamurti biographer wrote that “history will not view Krishnamurti in quite the same light”, yet the same author considered the th impact of the revelations doubtful.
These provoked rebuttal publications by Krishnamurti associates and affiliated institutions,   while one independent source has described the book as “deliberately iconoclastic “. This is not only the story of one person. It is the story of the relationships of J.
Krishnamurti and people closely involved with him, especially Rosalind Williams Rajagopal and D. Rajagopal, my mother and father, and of the consequences of this involvement on their lives. Recently there have been biographies and a biographical film on Krishnamurti that have left areas, and a large span of years, in mysterious darkness.
It is not in the interest of historical integrity, especially where such a personality is concerned, that there be these areas of obscurity.
