Minor Sai center trumpets minor concession to attract volunteers
Posted by robertpriddy on December 8, 2014
Every small allowance won by any Sai Baba related institutions is brandished now like a proof of his omnipotent interference in worldly affairs.One might well be taken in by this Sai Baba propaganda attempt to encourage the diminishing number of volunteer devotees to go to Prashanthi ashram to serve. The mailer is C.E.O. at the minor clinic Srinivasa Hospital and Diagnostic Center, Nalgonda

Subject: Railway concession to Sri Sathya Sai seva dal.
This speaks volumes about the existing Seva Dal – corruption was always there, as it always is in India. Rs 5,000 is basically NOTHING nowadays, so the concession would only help the elderly and unemployed housewives. Even field laborers make more than that a month. Runaway inflation has changed and continues to change the entire level of prices in India. The small concession is to be seen on the background of the fact that everything costs 3 or 4 times the amount it did 10 years ago. Once one could buy tomatoes for Rs 2 a kilo when they were in season, now they are between Rs 50-60 a kilo year round. There were rooms in the Parthi village for Rs 1,500 a month but nowadays, even with the lack of demand, it is reportedly hard to find anything under Rs 6,000 rent a month for a one bedroom room.
Eileen Weed, who has relatives and friends in the area wrote:
“In 2005 when I left India, my salary as the Administrator of Karuna Society was Rs 5,500 a month, and I was making as much as the veterinary surgeon at the clinic (an uneducated villager who was trained by Clementien to do treatments on the animals). Both of us had the highest paid wages, most other workers were getting Rs 2,000 – Rs 3,000 a month.”
