There is some good news.
Sri Satya Sai Baba has asked his devotees to honour soldiers and veterans. So on Army Day, yesterday, all over the country Sai Samithi members had invited veterans and extolled their contributions. 9 veterans, including me, were there as guests at the local sai samithi where they gifted us a brass lamp, a steel tray, couple of sai books, and of course the prasad! The host while welcoming us said that 'bhagwan' always used to tell his devotees that they should look after their parents and those who failed to do so should never go to him. But 'this time' he also told them that they should ever be grateful to the soldiers who work tirelessly along the borders to secure this country so that 'all of us could enjoy the freedom to do what we want and sleep peacefully'.
I am NO devotee of Sri Sai Baba but I know that he is doing a lot of humanitarian services to the society. And when you think that those who are tasked, empowered and equipped to do these 'services' as a job - whom we normally refer to as the government- are only cheating us, and we have no option but to acknowldege them as human beings, then Sai Baba may definitely be raised to the category of bhagwan!
