Anneke Wills, a British actress who had played Dr Who's sidekick Polly, joined the ashram [in Pune, India] in 1975. 'For the first few nights I cried into my pillow. I'd swapped my wonderful home for a mattress in a communal dormitory,' she recalled.
'But there were some wonderful people there. I was a bit bored by the free love thing. I'd had enough of all that. It was the meditation I was interested in.'
She remained there for six years before following the Bhagwan [Osho] when he moved to Oregon, where she became one of thousands of non-U.S. followers who undertook arranged marriages so they could stay there.
