"We are now better able to see the Decline and Fall of the Showman Empire. But the core leaders of the ‘Secret Swami’ (as the BBC has named him) are immensely powerful, and won’t go down without a fierce fight. Secret fierceness excercised by a cult connected with powerful and corrupt political figures is immensely devious".

"Awards officials, owing to, in this sort of issue, a not very experienced or competent UK CEO of the Duke of Edinburgh Awards Scheme, Peter Westgarth, was slow off the mark. However, after very high level representations from our side, the Duke of Edinburgh Award Trustees and Prince Philip’s Private Secretary, Brigadier Sir Miles Hunt-Davies KCVO, CBE, realized that a serious matter was at hand".

"It has been an absurd situation that NRI’s (Non Resident Indians) have been accessed in the media of many countries with large Indian diaspora to critical information about Sai Baba, when Indians in their own country have been denied".

"Sai Baba says he will rule the earth, but he cannot even rule the Duke of Edinburgh. Nor, breaking famous and widely publicized promises, can he transform India, which as UN and other studies have shown is in the grip of enormous corruption at virtually every level, and has abysmally failed to institute essential reforms. Nor has he been able to honor many years of promises that he is about to travel to other parts of the world".
