A very apposite comment was made on yesterday’s blog (Sai Baba on science) by Srikanthuppuluri who wrote:-
“And apart from the ignorance of science, he discouraged his students from developing a scientific temper (lest they find out the truth about him) and science in general. So much so that he made comments in a most derogatory manner about scientists saying “What did the scientists do by investigating so much and going to the moon, they after all brought only mud” In the same note, it also needs to be questioned “Being the self-proclaimed omnipotent avatar of our times, what did he do to this world except tricking people in to working for him like slaves and building an organization full of scoundrels and embezzlers looting the general public”
The writer has a blog about Sathya Sai Baba which has, among others, an excellent article which compares genuine education with Sai education (known variously as ‘Educare’ and ‘Education in Human Values’, EHV etc.).
