The failing Sathya Sai Baba and his mini-imperium created yet another fiasco early in January (2008) by messing up the international tennis tournament between India and the Phillipines in the Puttaparthi Sathya Sai Tennis stadium (especially built to attract tourism and thereby doubtless to regenerate the failing cash flow in the coffers of the Sathya Sai Central Trust due to loss of overseas donations).
That Sathya Sai Baba is failing both in physical power and ‘spiritual’ attraction is shown by the new reliance on sports events to attract visitors. Strange indeed that the ashram authorities caused the cancellation of the tournament on the grounds that Sai Baba’s indisposition disabling him from blessing and inaugurating the event would be ‘inauspicious’. The loss of prestige and the investment of all parties involved was inauspicious for future attempts to attract tennis authorities to put Puttaparthi on their map (let alone the Olympic Committee, which close devotees actually believe will grant the 2020 Olympics to Puttaparthi!). Such is the nature of the ‘Sai faith’ that events in Sai Baba’s name cannot proceed without his Divine Blessing (and they also have to start at an ‘auspicious’ time – ‘Gulikala’ and NOT ‘Rahukala’ – because Sai Baba also always observes that ‘astrological’ superstition most strictly).
The very plush Olympic class stadium is thereby looking more like another white elephant, installed at great cost not far from the unsaleable Sathya Sai White Elephant Airport of Puttaparthi, which the Sathya Sai Central Trust cannot offload despite major ‘sweeteners’ in the form of a large extra tract of land to any potential buyer.

One Response to “Sai Baba’s tennis stadium another white elephant?”

  1. […] We receive reports of the enormous decline in the number of foreigners visiting Sathya Sai Baba at the Puttaparthi ashram. It is the western media, such as the BBC, that have investigated and exposed Sathya Sai Baba and his cult. Visitor numbers from within India have been assisted by the pushing of a railhead to Puttaparthi. The airport, however, is now seen by many as a spent force.
