Strict with oneself, Liberal with others

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||

Mananeeya Eknathji wrote letter to Prof K Sheshadri who was given the responsibility of Yuva Bharati. His letter amply says how he used to look into the difficulties that the workers faced. He took all the blame to himself. He writes :

I am distressed to find that you are awfully hurt over the irregular procedure followed by the office, and especially myself, in conveying you my mind regarding editorial. If anybody is to be blamed in the episode, it is none else but myself. But, I was put in a worst dilemma when I received our editorial while I was leaving for the airport for my journey in the interior of Arunachal Pradesh. In the circumstances there was no scope either for amending the editorial myself or for addressing a detailed letter to you. As we are primarily wedded to a Cause and only secondarily to prescribed formalities, I chose to resort to an unusual procedure rather than allow the cause to suffer. When I meet you on 28th March, I shall certainly seek your counsel, for my future guidance, in respect of the proper procedure that should and could have been adopted by me in the circumstances I was caught.
