Reference: Friday, July 04  Letter from Glen Meloy to Brian Taylor

To: Ms Deanna XXX, Tolleson Unified High School District, Arizona, USA.

Dear Deanna, 

I am a retired English-Social Studies college teacher in Australia, and also former lecturer in English at Sathya Sai Baba's large boys' college at Whitefield, via Bangalore, South India. 

It was heartening to see your expression of interest in the context of your research paper on sexual abuse, and also to note that Glen Meloy (who has for about four difficult years made almost superhuman efforts to expose the facts about the down side of Sathya Sai Baba) has been able to confirm that your project has the support of Mr. Brian Taylor, your senior English teacher at Tolleson Unified High School District in Arizona. 

I keep in quite regular touch with a number of highly qualified sexual abuse therapists in the United States who know about the Sathya Sai Baba matter.  Should you wish, I shall be very happy to let them know of your research. They are each wonderfully dedicated and experienced women, senior in years, and I feel sure they would be happy to be in touch with you. 

It may also be possible to put some of your questions to a few who have very moving stories of direct victim hood at the hands of Sathya Sai Baba. Perhaps such an arrangement may best be mediated via one or more of the licensed professional sexual abuse therapists who I have mentioned above. 

I copy below an article to which I have still to put some finishing touches, Sathya Sai Baba Exposť: An Update. You are welcome to use it in your research, and I am more than happy to answer as best I can any questions you may wish to ask me. 

My best wishes to you for your senior research paper on child abuse, and to your folks, Mr. Taylor and Tolleson school from here in north eastern Australia (near Brisbane in the state of Queensland),

Barry Pittard
