This blog and the many works, alongside other former devotees of Sai Baba, India's most famous and controversial guru, is undertaken in the trust that eventually the facts will surface. Those who have stood forth as voices as truth about the allegations can verify to bona fide investigators from the media, institutions etc., as truthful every statement that we have made. Our words have been of course - as is the case with others who have exposed corruption - drastically misrepresented. Often it would be unwise to correct certain matters on the Internet, because our words are seized upon and further distorted by antagonists. This is why former devotees and other critics wish to see Sai Baba and his extremely wealthy and influential Sathya Sai Organization submitted to proper third party investigation. 

A series of brief exposures. Ashok Bhagani, UK head of the Sathya Sai Organization is under examination for statements he has made to news media like the Eastern Eye and the BBC Radio 4. 

India may be showing more signs of democratic maturity. One would hope that such changes may erode the extraordinary protection Sai Baba has all along enjoyed from successive state and central governments in India.

Just as down many years, relating to boys and young men, further allegations have surfaced of Sai Baba asking for felatio (wanting his penis to be sucked). Ullrich Zimmermann, a young German, came forward with his allegations to a US television host Alan Steinfeld in 2002. The footage has recently been released, with promise of more to come.

Billions from many countries pour into Sathya Sai Baba's Exchequer. Governments and citizens need to be concerned at this. And does India wish to gain the opprobrium the more this and many other terrible facts are exposed in major international media, which has been increasingly happening? 

Sai Baba worsens in his mental and physical health. He confounds his minders by making lunatic statements, including those caught by the BBC's camera's in 'The Secret Swami'.

Reports of popular backlashes against corruption in India, for example, by Sanjoy Majumder of BBC Delhi and Tim Webster of AP raise the query whether there will be a popular backlash against Sathya Sai Baba and the core leaders who have covered up the sheer extent of allegations of serial sexual molestation of boys and young men, implication in police killings in his bedroom, etc.

Christmas 2006, Sai Baba and his deputy world chief and also head of Radio Sai International, Dr G. Venkataraman, had a lovefest over the late and monstrous Ugandan dictator Idi Amin. Sai Baba sentimentally recalled how much devotion Idi Amin had for him. Clearly, Forest Whitaker's highly-acclaimed portrayal of Idi Amin is preferrable for factualness compared to Sai Baba weepy account.

Even news of the the BBC's 'The Secret Swami' - seen in over 120 countries - did not shift much of the Indian media's profound silence on any seriously adverse criticism of Sai Baba. But the Indo-Asian News Service achieved a considerable change of status when some Indian news media took its feed on Paul Lewis's November 3, 2006 article in The Guardian: 'The Indian living god, the paedophilia claims and the Duke of Edinburgh awards':,,1939405,00.html
