After the winning of world cup the next event claiming big headlines happens to be the death of Bhagavan Sri Satya Saibaba. Our TV channels and news papers have been gross in calling it ‘death’. Bhagavan did not die. He left the world in his present ‘Avatar’ to assume the next one. Only he miscalculated the time at which he intended to leave this world and left about ten years early. On reading the news, some thoughts propped up. Just putting them down as they came.
News papers and TV channels are full of Saibaba’s death. All our political leaders are offering condolences. They have to. Saibaba’s desciple’s votes count. And they are in crores. One politician raised above others. Our CM Yeddyurappa has said that he will propose ‘Bharata Ratna’ to Bhagavan. I would consider it an insult to Bhagavan. But I also heard someone has already seconded the proposal. I am sure lakhs and lakhs of devotees would be thrilled. Bhagavan getting Bharata ratna just like Mother Theresa getting saint hood. Great country. With us, gods are not above Bharata Ratna and our politicians are never above cheap gimmicks. Yeddyurappa was faster than Kiran Reddy. Reddy visited Puttaparti before yeddyurappa but missed out a good chance. Next in line for Bharata Ratna- Kashi Vishweshwara and Tirupati Venkateshwara. But they have to leave this world first. I don’t think they will.
Many members of the trust have felt that the Bhagavan died because there is a flaw in the ‘vastu’ of the hospital, Sr Satya Sai Institute of higher medical sciences.( I hope I got the name right). They blamed the Vastu and also the doctors for not allowing the Bhagavan to be shifted out. A change in Vastu would have tremendously improved Bhagavan’s health. Just as gods are not above Bharat ratna, they are not above Vastu also. Vastu is supreme. But I have to put in my doubt too. If the Bhagavan decided to leave this world, only to be born in the next avatar, who are the doctors to prevent him? I don’t blame doctors. But vastu, I can’t say anything. I have no knowledge of it.
Now, the next avatar. There are reports that the Bhagavan has said that he will come into this world again as an abandoned child and will be found on the banks of Cauvery river in Mandya district, Karnantaka. He will be called ‘Prema sai’. So, all those who intend abandoning their children in dust bins, railway compartments and street corners can take a chance by heading to Mandya. Abandon the child, they surely can. River bank is better and hopefully cleaner than dust bin, aleast in some places and so, less guilt, if they have any. But if the child turns out to be Prema Sai, imagine the fortune. Far far better than KBC. They can always claim that they are the god’s parents and left him on the bank on his own instructions. Have the claim confirmed by DNA tests.
Expect dozens of abandoned children on banks of Cauvery.
Bye. More horrible thoughts if news papers help me.
