K.R.Paramahamsa and his wife with SB

Since Sathya Sai Baba claims to own nothing whatever, and since Dr. G. Venkataraman and Mr. K. Chackravarti co-administer finances as Central Trust members, one must ask whether he and his cronies on the Trust have literally rewarded themselves with free cars  – in short, self-serving seva’ at the expense of those who the donations were really intended for. That Sathya Sai Baba presented the vehicles to them with loads of praise makes matters worse, if anything… for he claims to have nothing to do with the Sathya Sai Central Trust, where all the finances of all his business is handled, but where some of them sit! I quote: “At a meeting of the Central Trust yesterday, I told the members including Sri Indulal Shah, that I had no interest in property. Do not involve me in any connection with these properties. I do not wish to have any connection with money or property. My only concern is with my devotees. Telling them all this, I signed the papers.” (1.01.1998, Sanathana Sarathi, Vol.  41, January 1998, p. 4)

The beneficiaries were:-
vipcars(1) Kondal Rao, Senior Technical Consultant to Govt. of Andhra Pradesh and Chief Engineer to the Chennai Water Supply Project.
(2) K. Chakravarthi, Head of Prashanthi Nilayam ashram, Secretary of the Central Trust. Formerly dismissed from his government post for embezzlement.
(3) Dr. G. Venkataraman,  former professor of physics and Founder Director of ANURAG ex-Vice-Chancellor of the Sai university, Director of Radio Sai Global Harmony.
(4) A. Ramakrishna, former Vice-President of ECC (a part of the Larsen & Toubro Group) which received many huge, lucrative contracts from the Sai Central Trust.
Of K.R.Paramahamsa, IAS (Retd.), in charge of the home for destitute children established by SSB, I know little. He may be a poor man. (Note: In one official site 5 cars and recipients are listed, in another only 4 – strange reporting, as usual)

In this – the poorest part of India with millions on or below the bread line, money donated to Sathya Sai Baba to raise the people from poverty, ignorance, illness and want is squandered on what smells of bribery to keep his top official defenders well on side. The money used on those cars could have done MUCH more good in projects to help the less fortunate. [Note: according to his own words, Sai Baba has no property and no money, so the money for the cars must have been donations to the Central Trust, over which he rules anyhow].

Why were the cars presented to those particular five members and not others? Are they the most needy? Answer, definitely NOT!

A valid question. But the flat-out defender of everything about Sathya Sai Baba (even while for years believing he was a sexual abuser, mind you! see here) Gerald Joe Moreno would very much like to explain this away, when he wrote on his blog:-

from Gerald Joe Moreno's blog attacking critics

So Gerald Moreno admits that knows some of the top VIPs of the Sathya Sai Central ~Trust and ashram? He writes confidently about them as if he knew them well, too. I am not surprised, for Venkataraman defends on much the same lines as his defender Moreno does. He cannot credibly claim no connection with the Sathya Sai Organization, as he does to the point of constantly repeated denial.

Now, what Gerald Moreno does not realise is that numerous of these five receipients of new, expensive Japanese cars were not with Sathya Sai Baba for most of their adult lives to devote their entire lives to his service, as Moreno claims… Chackravati and Venkataraman came to him late and only when things went wrong for them in life did they go to him and find another life lording it in the ashrams. Four of them are known to be very well-heeled and hardly in need of free, brand new and expensive cars.  Their qualifications alone show they are among the richer people of India. Why should they be accumulating yet further material rewards when they are supposed to be “sacrificing” worldy matters (according to the teachings of Sai Baba)?  Why were the cars presented to those particular five members and not others? Are they the most needy? Answer, definitely NOT!
