Those were the conditions in Jabalpur for the press and civic organizations in their historic heading towards liberation before Rajneesh in the early 1950s joined the press corps of the city. His wish to collect his own money and be self-dependent was fulfilled when – while he was still living in his aunt’s house – he in 1951-1952 got a job as assistant editor of Nav-Bharat which had started its circulation in 1950.
