As part of his huge and challenging opus on Sathya Sai Babaa, the Australian academic Brian Steel has written about questions surrounding Sathya Sai Baba's birthdate. This is contained in Chapter 5 of his 'Omniscience and Truth' (Revised and Enlarged Version). As this Chapter is long, detailed and deals with a variety of topics, I have extracted, to coincide with Sathya Sai Baba's November 23, 2009 birthday celebrations at Puttaparthi, the relevant section.
If Sathya Sai Baba has got his own birth date wrong - and he has shown confusion about quite a number of other details (which devotees commonly pass off as his test of their faith) - then we have yet another example of anything but that omniscience with which he credits himself.
