"I received this note from a young person living in India. Interestingly, in this person’s report, the Indian army comes off  badly and not the police. In the years that I lived in India, many Indians had great respect for the army but widely despised the police for their cruelty and corruption.

.... Sathya Sai Baba is heavily surrounded by both police and army personnel all the way to the very highest echelons ....

.... One sees from its daily newspapers that India is not a land  of democracy – except for a thin veneer of it – but, rather of tragedy. And indeed India’s media fails to reveal a great deal because it is so heavily muzzled. It is, for example, foreign media like the BBC, The Times of London, The Telegraph, The Guardian, and newspapers in Europe, Canada and Australia that have been able to get the powerfully indicting Sathya Sai Baba facts out to the world"
