Is Puttaparthi Glitter the ‘Shining India’?

Posted by Barry Pittard on December 16, 2010

  

Amid golden glitter, Sai Baba says he will rule world

Many are the demonstrably mistaken accusations thrown at those who have stood forth to expose Sathya Sai Baba and his international sect.  For example, typically taking our remarks badly out-of-context, it is said that we are: “India bashers”. But these defenders of Sathya Sai Baba and his cult do their cause harm; and we learn that many Sai devotees will have nothing to do with them – although we also know that some who are close to Sathya Sai Baba have assisted them in various ways.

The absurdity and intellectual dishonesty of their attempts to defame will not win them the favour of astute and questioning readers.

Often, there is the tacit assumption that to criticize Sathya Sai Baba is itself a slight against India. This is offensive to a great many Indians from all walks of life who do not think that Sai Baba is a reflection of all that is good in their country.

Anyone who has lived in India lengthily, as I have, comes to know how profoundly Indians across classes and divides deplore the corruptions and abuses of human rights and democratic freedoms which they see perpetrated by the power elites in their country.

Yet this is the India that Sai Baba has said he will transform. He has spoken of first “cleaning up his own backyard”, before saving the entire world before he dies. He is now very old and sick. See:

Sathya Sai Baba Breaks Down and Sobs at 85th Birthday

Posted by Barry Pittard on December 11, 2010

Confirming many reports of Sathya Sai Baba breaking down and weeping in more recent times, there is now brilliantly clear and revealing video footage for all to see.

So great is the grip of elites who hold wealth and power in India that many Indians, both those who live inside and outside India welcome – though with feelings of deep shame and desperate hope for deliverance from the evils – well-informed information that emanates from outside India. The article (see below) by a member of School of Regulation, Justice and Diplomacy, College of Asia and the Pacific, Australian National University, Canberra, may serve as but one example of writing that points to the ubiquity of graft scandals in India, while pointing to some of the attempts courageous and determined Indians are making to oppose this.

Disillusioned by rampant graft scandals

THE wealthy in India are laundering $19bn a year.

ALTHOUGH corruption in India is nothing new, recent examples appear to put the country in the category of one of the worst kleptocracies, and a survey indicates widespread disillusionment with the Singh government.

Former mines minister and chief minister of Jharkhand, Madhu Koda, is in jail on charges of having siphoned off $US1 billion ($1bn), mainly from corrupt mining deals, during his short tenure.

By laundering funds through cronies, Koda managed to acquire hotels around the world and even a mine in Africa.

Although India has passed legislation to strengthen its anti-money-laundering regime, a recent Global Financial Integrity report found rich Indians launder a staggering $US19bn a year.

“No fear of bombs” in India, Said Sai Baba a Week Before Mumbai Terrorist Attack

Posted by Barry Pittard on December 1, 2008

On November 20, just before the horrendous terrorist strike on Mumbai, Sathya Sai Baba made yet another of his statements which have been tragically faulted by events seen by an aghast world only a few days later (and, in fact, all along, by a long series of terrorist attacks in India – extraordinarily overlooked by Sathya Sai Baba in his reported statement (as see below).

Terrorist Smoke Casts Pall Over India and the World

Terrorist Smoke Casts Pall Over India and the World

… While India’s and the world’s self-promised ‘Saviour’ potters and dithers, just as the Emperor Nero fiddled while Rome burnt.

Sathya Sai Baba Statement’s Grisly Falsification A Few Days After

Here is the report of Sathya Sai Baba’s words from a discourse dated November 22 (the day before the vast and opulent birthday celebrations, see links below) – from a well-acknowleged Sathya Sai Baba reporter, R. Satish Naik (who lives close to the Puttaparthi ashram) of the well-organized Saibabaofindia group:

India is the only place where people are not worried about any attacks.  In America , Germany and other countries, they can’t eat well or sleep well. There is fear of bombs always in those countries. But in India , there is no fear of bombs. India will never have any such attacks”.

Extensive ‘Weeding’ By SSB Editors

Perhaps when it is realized, what an appalling blunder has occurred, the information will disappear, just as Sai editors have so long excised, prior to publishing discourses, glaring embarrassments such as his slips, contradictions, faulted prophesies, etc. I myself when editing for Sai Towers had occasionally a hand in such censorship, and would check with my dear friend, the late V.K. Narasimhan, editor of Sanathana Sarathi what he, at the same time, was excising, prior to publication, in regard to that magazine, which goes worldwide, as does the magazine Spiritual Impressions for which I was doing fairly extensive work.

As to there never being any fear of bombs in India, that is a massive mistake! So far out of touch is Sathya Sai Baba, surrounded by his gunmen and guards in his fortress ashram.  Shivraj Patil and his forerunners have presided over a long series of bomb attacks and terrible massacres of Hindus and Muslims by each other. The fear is tangible in many places, especially in Mumbai these days, of course.

There is nothing remarkable in Sathya Sai Baba making failed prophesies and predictions – he is constantly doing it! There is a regular cornucopia of false predictions, broken promises, and absurd claims of his importance to the world. (See here)
