Sathya Sai Baba’s Health Condition Again At Grave Risk
Posted by Barry Pittard on April 5, 2011
In a matter of days, rosy reports emanating from official Puttaparthi sources about Sai Baba’s condition are now shown to be either pipe dreams or deliberate gloss. Of course it is conceivable that at least some his leaders who control the bulletins to the media, government and Sathya Sai Organization etc., are unable to believe that their guru can die very soon. He had long prophesied matters very differently.
By a number of usually well-informed sources , we are told that there is a battle royal going on for control of his organization. We learn of serious chicanery leveled against Sai Baba family members and others. Alert media, law firms and other investigators will need for example – very quickly, before witnesses are hushed up – to get hold of stakeholders who have been disaffected, and also those, including many leaders in India and abroad, who have resigned from the Sathya Sai Organization on a matter of ethical principle. Robert Priddy and I can coordinate contact with many individuals of excellent repute in their professions, trades and wider communities, who have provided evidence for major world media, governments, institutions, and so forth.
Experts in law, media, etc., well know that, well-handled and cross-checked, disenfranchised individuals and groups can yield accurate information. At the moment, we are doing some cross-checking of our own. Readers can watch this space.

He became famous with his miracles but for the last two decades he had been focusing on social and charitable work.
