Renowned Indian Editor VKN. Diary and Letter
"VKN as V.K. Narasimhan was affectionately known, with rare courage
stood up to Mrs Indira Gandhi and the Emergency rule she imposed on
India, 1975-77. He succeeded Professor P.N. Kasturi as Editor of
Sanathana Sarathi, Sai Baba’s official organ, which is
distributed worldwide. VKN was well known among those close to Sai
Baba as being an almost lone case of one who would regularly and
forcefully stand up to him.
The committing of this material - a) scanned from the extensive
Robert Priddy diaries and notebooks relating specifically and often
daily to the time, and b) including exchange of letters between the
two men - is valuable".
Note: Robert Priddy was a devotee of Sathya Sai Baba for
about 18 years. He was head of the Sathya Sai Sai Organization in
Norway, and is a retired academic in philosophy and social science
at the University of Oslo. He often contributed articles to
Sanathana Sarathi, encouraged to do so by VKN, who held him in
high regard both intellectually and as a close and trusted friend.
He has brought the same outstanding commitment and personal
sacrifice to surfacing the case against Sathya Sai Baba and those
key leaders who so shamelessly cover up for him that he did to his
duties in his decade and a half as a national leader of the Sathya
V.K Narasimhan and Robert Priddy. A long
friendship. Photo 1998.
