Beloved Archives, incorporated by Nosherwan Nalavala in NJ about seven years ago as a non profit- 501(c)(3), is evidently a tragic con.
The archival project purports to collect, archive and present media and material associated with Avatar Meher Baba’s life to the public. Toward this end, money, archival material, and other kinds of support have been vigorously solicited for a project that has always stated to be a project centered in the United States. Now, it has come to light, Nosherwan has promised to give this archival collection to AMBPPCT (Avatar Meher Baba Perpetual Public Charitable Trust) in India. The reason for this up to now undisclosed arrangement is unknown. It is not clear how long this arrangement has been in place.
What is abundantly clear is that the many donors and benefactors of this archival project have been duped as to the intentions of Beloved Archives. Many sacred items have been donated to the project in the belief that they would be part of a collection permanently housed here in America. To betray the trust of these donors is breathtaking. What is truly unfathomable, is that such a decision would be made without first consulting the many people who have made this project possible. This is utterly contemptuous.
We can only hope that AMBPPCT has the good sense and honesty to decline such a Trojan Horse.
