Thanks to a very kind, though as yet anonymous person, I've received the full patent application file description for Rawat's latest "invention". It includes some very rough hand-drawn illustrations that can only have come from the hand of the Master himself ...

(it's quite a big pdf file - about 1Mb).

Patent Application - Prem Rawat (Inventor)




I still don't get it

So what? Rawat is bored with flying and is going into the candy display business? I also don't really get the idea that this is something new. If you go to a box-making company, they've got ideas and samples for just about anything you could imagine and 10 times more for stuff that you never even thought of. They've been doing this for generations already. And the idea of having different size boxes for similar products is a marketing strategy. Whatever, why doesn't Rawat stick to something he does well, like write poetry.

But it is nice to see how he can take off time from his busy schedule of establishing peace in the world to create some much needed and useful innovations.

Maybe Rawat saw a TV docu-drama on Leonardo da Vinci. So he thought, being the genius that he is, he ought to be doing genius things too. I can just imagine the books being written in generations to come. Prem Rawat, spiritual master of his time, airplane pilot, painter, web designer, poet, and marvelous inventor of important display boxes for candy.

Neither do I.

The man must be barking mad. I put together a pretty nifty coal bunker a few years back, which is made out of old doors, maybe I should patent that.

First, I've got the scoop from a confidential informant that the inventor is not Prem Rawat, but Raja Ji Rawat. It seems that Maharaji (Prem) was getting sick and tired of having to take care of his deadbeat brother all the time by either fronting him money for a new scheme or backfilling with money for a failed scheme. So, Maharaji the wise Lord that he is had Raja Ji enroll in the Vocational Rehabilitation program at the Malibu Community College. And since it was an online curriculum Raja Ji doesn't need to leave the compound.  And Maharaji always prefers it that way since he can keep an eye on people and they get in less trouble.

Now, I've been told not to say that Raja Ji did this completely on his own. Oh, no. Rather, he and Prem worked together on the "Box Proj" during their afternoon "Don't bogart that joint, my Lord" sessions that always started at the conclusion of the 2:00 p.m. group session of the Dysfunctional Family counseling everyone was receiving from Valerio. Working on the Box Proj always seemed easier than trying to do the homework that Valerio had suggested they do. Deep down Maharaji liked having his children kiss his feet and there was no way in hell he'd ever put a stop to that. Besides, he had to stay in practice for the rare Amaroo darshan line. Sure, he'd occasionally give darshan in India, but only to the inner circle faithful and servants. He had long ago given up giving darshan to the masses. Too many of 'em.

What is the Box Proj?

I didn't get a straight answer as to who the targeted audience is.

Is it manufacturers?

And if it is I'd say not.  They already have their boxing solution figured out and that is they in each carton there is a fixed 10 or 12 or 24 or 50 or 100 144 or some other common unit.  Manufacturers have little need to split shipments up like that.  And if they did they'd use a bubble pack or peanuts which are much less expensive then making "filler" boxes.

Is it for vendors like mail shippers (e.g. Amazon, Omaha Steaks, Billy Bob's House of Fruitcakes and Christmas Fruitcakes, etc.)?

It's probably not for Amazon as much as Maharaji and Raja Ji would like it to be. In fact, if Amazon or anyone else ever used a similar technique of filling the empty space in a box by using empty boxes then they'd get their pants sued off and the Rawat Brothers would be richer than rich. Wait, what am I saying? I think I'm saying that the Rawat Brothers have the whole world cornered when it comes to putting anything in a box. If it even looks like somebody is using one or more empty boxes to take up the empty space they will owe the Rawats a royalty.

I can see it now. Yes, full employment for all premies seeking employment. At every FedEx, USPS, UPS, DHL, and every other shipper of boxes there will be Rawat Bros. inspectors using sophisticated X-Ray machines hooked up to computers to look for violators. Ka-ching, ka-ching, ka-ching - all day long. And the shippers would have to agree to allow the Rawat Bros. box inspectors in their facilities to avoid penalties themselves. Oh, how our Lord is Almighty!

Let's get back to Billy Bob's House of Fruitcakes.  Years ago Billy Bob got hip to the fact that it was a more efficient use of box space to make the fruitcakes rectangular instead of round. He saw this from shipping his chocolate almond Yule Log.

The fact is that most people don't want fruitcake at all. But the problem is that there are fruitcake nuts out there who insist on sending or giving a fruitcake to every person they know. So, there you have Aunt Edna. Yup, she's the one. And she likes to put on all of that horrible perfume and give it to you in person as she gives you a big wet kiss and a big fat hug.

So, every year Aunt Edna gets her order into Billy Bob by July 15. But, the quantities vary every year since people are always busy being born and busy dying. Sometimes, it's 30 fruitcakes and sometimes it's 32 or sometimes 27. And lately the number has been declining every year.

Do you see the problem that Billy Bob House of Fruitcakes has? He needs to have his box manufacturer make separate sized boxes to handle every permutation from 1 to 100 and then Billy Bob has to stock all of them. Add that expense to the further complications in the shipping room where minimum wage workers have to find the right box, assemble it, and load product into it. And what if they get it wrong where they really needed a 15 count box instead of an 18. Now, they have to start all over again. Holy Cripes! What a waste!

Do you see now how the one box fits all is the Perfect Master's Perfect solution and not just some dumb pipe dream?
