On 27 February 2007 morning, I retitled the memoirs again to 'The Allurement of Realisation' and was tempted to make it public now by sending it to the University of Greenwich as an explanation of why I had moved on to higher things from my scientific pursuits and that I was now ready to return to teaching and writing my scientific papers. However, I found myself discarding the thought in response to a tea spillage incident as being a message not to pursue this course of action. With the Police job application referring to my up-to-date medical records, and no word from my doctor on what Dr Shobha wrote following my last appointment with her, these memoirs must lie dormant so that my present job and the future are not put at any risk. I was also very aware that the continually changing picture in my mind on God and religion, being the essential truth of my story, I could not edit these memoirs except for any grammatical and factual errors that I spotted.
Living in detachment of God, unconcerned about His Presence, also did not last 2 full days. I was offered a job interview at Sherlodge Skoda Garage, but minor things started to go wrong too, like computer software at home and till not balancing at work. The mind was drawn to the title of a book by Arundhati Roy, 'The God of Small Things' that Rashmi had loved reading, and I knew that it was He who had protected us all these years. But it was also clear that God went on and on, and so must I until I am free from my duties in this material world.
Rashmi sent an email on my behalf to Dr Chris Wood for taking to the Sherlodge Garage interview and I asked Mrs Linda Nicolaides and our neighbour Mrs Hilary Harwood for similar references which they duly provided for my interview on 6 March 2007 which seemed to have gone well. Unfortunately Mr John Devine, the General Manager of Sherlodge Garage (Skoda) wrote to me on 9 March 2007 that despite my excellent skills and qualifications I did not have the experience in the area of Service Reception and another candidate had been selected. So I was to remain stuck in my petrol station job.
Shaw Trust sent a letter and form for the purposes of enabling me to apply for a Job Start Grant of £200 but on reading the contents I decided not to respond so as not to risk drawing attention of my employer to my medical records. I received a letter from the Disability and Carers Service acknowledging my letter of 10 February 2007 in which I had stated that I had been discharged by my Consultant Psychiatrist on 7 February 2007 which meant that I was no longer disabled, and it should therefore suspend further payments of this Allowance to me. They wrote: please can you tell us if your Mobility and Care needs have changed since your last claim of 7 July 2004, if so please complete the enclosed claim form. When I did not respond it sent a reminder on 1 March 2007, and again on 16 March 2007. This time I replied on 20 March 2007 with: Dear Sir or Madam. Thank you for your letter to me dated 16 March 2007. I do not know the true state of my present medical needs. I hope this information is useful.
Meanwhile I received a letter dated 7 March 2007 from Hadlow College acknowledging receipt of my Application for the vacancies of Lecturers in Animal Management. However on 22 March 2007 a second letter arrived stating 'unfortunately we will not be progressing further with your application' giving no reason for the rejection.
On 6 April 2007 I wrote to The Vice Chancellor of the University of Greenwich, under 'Medical Retirement': I have received confirmation that I should return to medication in which case I should have been granted medical retirement from the University of Greenwich in 1998 when my employment was unfairly and wrongfully terminated. I would be grateful for your action on this immediately. There was no reply to the letter.
Rashmi had said to me that after Easter she would be seeking a divorce and so after due discussion I wrote to Medway County Court on 13 April 2007: On 13 April 2007 I commenced divorce proceedings with Ms Michelle Edge of the Divorce Bureau, who said that she passed on my case to Bassets Solicitors, of 33-35 Balmoral Road, Gillingham, ME7 4QB (Tel 01634 575464). I would be grateful if you would kindly process the necessary paperwork for this case. The parties are: Husband - Dr S. Panigrahi; Date of birth: 8.8.57; Income: £180 per week (after tax); Children: 1 daughter, aged 16 and half; Date of marriage: 15.2.1985; Pension: accumulated before 1998; Home: 3 Hoath Lane, Wigmore, Near Gillingham, Kent, ME8 0SL (worth ~ £300,000, with a ~£20,000 mortgage).

I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.
On 16 April 2007 I wrote to the Prime Minister under 'Nuclear Energy from the Fusion Process'. Man will not be able to solve the technical problems associated with the hot nuclear fusion process (for which billions of pounds are planned to be spent) and I wished to report this fact to you in order that appropriate steps may be taken to stop future expenditures on this expensive venture. The source of my information is God Himself, so that I hope you will take this warning seriously.
On 16 April 2007, Dr N.R. Patel (not Dr Sudhir Patel, my GP) wrote to me: Dear Mr Panigrahi. I would like you to make an appointment with me urgently as I have spoken to Dr Shobha regarding your health who has recommended that you are commenced on some medication. Thank you for your cooperation.
On 18 April 2007 I wrote again to Medway County Court under the title: Dr S. Panigrahi versus the National Health Service: Please refer to my telephone conversation with Mr Fitchett of your Court this morning at ~12.30 pm, concerning my decision to sue the National Health Service for Negligence with regard to my letter to you dated 13 April 2007. I also wish to confirm to you that my wife and I have patched up our differences and no longer wish to divorce each other.
On 25 April 2007 I sent a Claim Form to Medway County Court for an Unspecified amount against the University of Greenwich, with the Brief details of Claim: Despite repeated submissions that I was suffering from a mental condition that would explain my conduct, the University of Greenwich has not considered the nature of this disorder and stopped my salary leading to a considerable loss of income for me. The matter of vexatious litigation has been referred to the High Court (at the Royal Courts of Justice, London). Under particulars of Claim I wrote: The University of Greenwich has consistently refused to accept the terms of my proposals to settle this dispute out of court.
On 11 April 2007, The Disability and Carers Service wrote that my Disability Living Allowance had risen to £34.20 per week.
On 28 April 2007 I submitted a Claim Form to the High Court of Justice, Royal Courts of Justice London on the attack on Iraq for £750,000, including a Court Fee of £600, with the Brief details of claim: This case is brought against Mr Anthony Blair's Government for deceiving the citizens of United Kingdom that Mr Saddam Hussein of Iraq was hoarding weapons of mass destruction. As a result taxpayers money was spent under false pretences in the war in Iraq. The taxpayer is therefore entitled to compensation from the members of the Government.
On 12 May 2007, I wrote to Liberty/Civil Liberties Trust: Dear Ms Shami Chakraborty. Further to my previous correspondence with your organisation, and on reviewing my Case as it stands today, do you not now realise my need for Liberty?. I should be grateful for an immediate reply.
On 15 May 2007, the Royal Courts of Justice, Queen's Bench Division wrote: Thank you for your letter dated 10 May 2007 and Claim Form. I am unable to issue your Claim Form as we require three copies of all your documents and the court Fee of £700 before we can issue your documents.
On 23 May 2007 I wrote to Friends of the Earth: I sent an email on Thursday 26 April 2007, 10:42:35 +0100(BST) to the Department of Trade and Industry at dti.enquiries @ dt1.gsi.gov.uk concerning the Hot Nuclear Fusion Process Expenditures and am puzzled by the letter dated 15 May 2007 that I received back from David Winslade (DTI, V359, 1 Victoria Street, London SW1H 0ET) who seems to have taken no account of the trouble that I had been through to ascertain the facts of what I was complaining about. The worlds resources should instead be pooled to divert or destroy asteroids on destination Earth which will otherwise destroy parts or the whole of mankind. I should be grateful if you would kindly inform me of the position taken by Friends of the Earth concerning this matter and send me the Application Form necessary to make a contribution to your crusades against those callously raping and pillaging Maa Lakshmi, the Goddess Earth.
Miss Joanna Hamer, Issue Section, Medway County Court wrote on 22 May 2007: Re: -v- ; Case No.: . Please find your letter enclosed, unfortunately I cannot find any details on our system under your surname. If you can provide any further details such as defendant's name and address, if a cheque has been cashed and when, then I can certainly look into the matter further. If however no cheque has been cashed then you can always provide a further cheque and claim form for the Court to issue. I provided the Court with the information and documents requested.
On 24 May 2007 I resubmitted the Claim Form on Iraq to the High Court in London stating that I wished to challenge the decision of the Court that I must pay a Court Fee of £700.
Friends of the Earth sent me back an email from Mr Stuart Croft: Dear Dr Panigrahi. Thank you for your letter dated 23 May about joining Friends of the Earth. We do not work on the issue or asteroids as mentioned in your letter. Friends of the Earth's main campaign is on climate change as we believe this is the greatest threat to the environment. We hope this helps.
On 6 June 2007 I sent a letter to the Information Commissioner, Freedom of Information, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow SK9 5AF: Please let me have the official justification on the on-going war in Iraq so that I may test its legality under United Kingdom law.

I applied to the Howard School for a job as Cover Supervisor on 19 July 2007 but was unsuccessful, as also proved to be the case with a similar application at Rainham Grammar School for Boys. Neither school provided any explanations for the rejections. During the summer I had also entered into correspondence with the Education Maintenance Allowance, Assessment & Payment Body, Freepost NAT11897, Darlington DL1 1BR, concerning a grant for Rupa to do further studies, until problems were finally sorted on 21 August 2007.
On 18 August 2007 however I informed the Supreme Court Group that I was no longer able to proceed with my Claim Form on the Iraq fiasco in view of my renewed asylum applications. Meanwhile at Shell Wigmore I was getting on with my work, training new staff having earlier written a Sales Assistant Training Manual for which I was paid a bonus of £150 in Sainsbury's vouchers. We prepared for a short family holiday in Somerset at the end of August and beginning of September.
On return from I found the 29 August 2007 letter from Lisa Bridger of Medway County Court stating: Dear Dr Panigrahi, Re: Dr Shantanu Panigrahi -8- The University of Greenwich Case No: ME010463. In reply to your letter dated 3rd August 2007 which was referred to the District Judge for his consideration. The District Judge comments that if you wish to apply to reinstate your claim your application should be made on a N244 application form with a Court Fee of £65.00. I referred this letter to Kent Police Legal Services Department, Sutton Road, Maidstone, Kent ME15 9BZ, for consideration. On 5 September 2007, I submitted the N244 Application Notice to Medway County Court but upon its own motion District Judge Parnell struck it out as totally without merit and as an abuse of process.
