Insight into Working Conditions at Sri Sathya Sai General Hospital, Puttaparthi

Posted by robertpriddy on June 18, 2020

 

We received this report in October, 2019, from a source who for reasons of security, wishes to remain anonymous. It gives valuable insight into the inside world of working at the Puttaparthi General Hospital.

I met several times with a gynecologist at the Sathya Sai General Hospital during my recent trip to Puttaparthi (a friend of a friend who we socialized with). She has been there one year, NOT a devotee, and will soon leave. She completed her Masters a year ago and had very limited experience. She tried working in a corporate hospital in a big city but was concerned about their unethical practices such as filling quotas for unnecessary surgeries, so she left.

She gave me insights into the Puttaparthi hospital interview process.

Telephone Excerpt

Sai General Hospital (GH) Phone Interview Experience:

GH: Are you familiar with Puttaparthi and Sai Baba?

Doc: Yes, I came there as a small girl with my parents.

GH: How wonderful! Then you know about Sai Baba?

Doc: Not much, but yes, I know OF him.

GH: Excellent! When can you start working?

Doc: Uh, what is the salary?

GH: We can give you Rs 62,000 and a room. (Note: after joining, she discovered they had LIED – the salary was only Rs 50,000 and she had to pay for electricity and water bills.)

Doc: How is the room furnished?

GH: Furnished? You need it furnished? We can put a bed in there for you. (When she came, she saw they provided a rickety old hospital bed, labeled “Super Speciality Hospital”!)

Doc: What about a table and chair? A fridge? Cupboards for storage? AC? A vehicle?

GH: None of that will be provided.

IN COMPARISION

These are typical questions that other hospitals asked her during the interveriew experience:

— Where/When did you graduate?
— What were your marks?
— What experience do you have?
— What procedures are you comfortable doing on your own?
— What procedures do you need assistance with?
— We will provide you with Rs 200,000 monthly salary (2 lakhs), with regular increases.
— We will provide you with top class fully furnished accommodation, two bedroom apartment with nice beds, hot water heater, fridge, AC, company vehicle, and of course table, chairs, lots of storage space, etc.

Doctor’s Quarters Conditions

Note: She was lucky to get a room within a couple days of arriving. Other doctors who joined after her, had no room for over a month after they joined, and they had to pay for their own accommodation in Puttaparthi. They continually heard excuses of the room “getting ready”.

I visited her room, which is in the hospital compound (it was not there in the ‘old days,’ when doctors had rooms inside the ashram). There was only one small cupboard in the kitchen – no other storage place anywhere, not even in the bedroom and entry rooms. Utensils and other food items were piled up on the counters. The cover to the toilet seat was gone. It was so sweltering hot in Puttaparthi that she ended up buying her own AC for the room (money provided by her parents, as her salary was insufficient). The mattress on the bed were hard as rock, slightly lumpy, and could not be used – she had purchased her own mattress. There was water damage visible on the walls, probably mold too, and the paint was peeling off from top to bottom. She told me that she saw several accommodations provided to doctors in the Super Speciality hospital and they were WORSE than hers.

She was totally shocked that the General Hospital did not ask nor did they care about any medical experience she might have – they only cared about her knowing about Sai Baba and Puttaparthi!

She didn’t like working at Puttaparthi and did a few more phone interviews with other hospitals, and finally accepted a job offer at a small town in another state, for several times more money than she gets in Puttaparthi.

She said that the Parthi hospitals are understaffed and always trying to rope in people willing to work for cheap wages; however, most new non-devotee employees leave within a few months. She also told older staff who were ardent devotees, would tell her stories of Sai miracles and pressure her on a regular basis to become a devotee and to attend bhajans. Also, she pointed out the lack of sanitation there was a big issue. For example, being free, she said, why of course needles were reused multiple times on multiple patients!

Some of the pictures of the doctor’s room are attached. In India, doctors are treated like VIPs with luxury accommodation when they join a hospital to work in. The doc lady was shocked when she saw what they provided for her!

The decline of The “God Avatar’s” accommodation facilities and unsanitary conditions are telling signs of the transitory nature of pretended divinity and fame. No wonder the gynecologist left asap!

Master Plan for Puttaparthi? UPDATED!

Posted by robertpriddy on June 11, 2020

The proposition for a major development of Puttaparthi into an international tourist destination, first reported years ago and revisited many times (not least of which was in September 2019), has again been revised in a Hans India article dated 2 June 2020.

Sathya Sai Baba has been dead and buried for nine (9) years now. Puttaparthi has hardly any visitors, as the evidence of wrongdoing and the fact that the baba constantly sexually abused young boys for many decades, has spread far and wide.

Puttaparthi is now just a typical small town with normal families going about their normal lives. How will they attract tens of thousands of spiritual-minded tourists to pay for the “Yoga Wellness Centre” and the “Food Park”? Wait and watch my friends – wait and watch!

This massive project promises to be yet another “White Elephant” of waste, just like the Sathya Sai Airport, vacant year round, is now.

Master plan prepared for development of Puttaparthi: MLA D Sridhar Reddy

Hans News Service
2 Jun 2020 12:48 AM IST

Puttaparthi (Anantapur) : MLA D Sridhar Reddy stated that he will strive to develop Puttaparthi as an international tourist destination. Already the spiritual town has a brand image due to the visit of several people from abroad when Bhagawan Sathya Sai Baba was alive.

The town has many guest houses and private resorts built by foreign devotees of the Baba and it will be developed on the lines of Mantralaya, he said.

Sathya Sai National Park, Underground drainage and underground power cables, a ring road, R&B circuit guest house, Food Park and Yoga Wellness Centre will be part of Rs 1,000 crore development project, he added.

Sridhar Reddy said to The Hans India that a master plan had been drafted prior to covid 19 lockdown.

Soon the issue will be taken to the notice of Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy.

APIIC will provide 100 acres of land for Food Park, and Roads and Buildings department will be investing Rs.350 crore on the 31.5 km ring road development covering Manillakunta Cross, Kothacheruvu, Puttaparthi and Bukkapatnam mandals. Already 60 acres had been identified for the Yoga Wellness Centre, he further said.

MLA Sridhar asked officials to take steps for planting trees on the proposed ring road connecting Puttaparthi-Bukkapatnam-Kothacheruvu. A fountain at the Chitravati dam and also a giant statue of Baba for attracting tourists are also planned by the MLA.

Why have so few Sai insiders come forward to tell the truth?

Posted by robertpriddy on June 10, 2020

Suggestion:

They cannot recognise the truth, because they will not accept many facts that undermine the self-evaluation of Sathya Sai Baba himself.

Below is a warning from 2001, posted on a now defunct yahoo group.

Scary stuff that needs to be exposed

From knkitts on: Sathya Sai Baba Discussion Club, message 2474:   http://clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/sathyasaibabadiscussionclub (Yahoo Groups has since been deleted)

Date: 8/6/01 9:22 p.m.

Dear all,
I’m going to come out with the full dirt as I’ve heard it on Sai Baba, sex cowboy. I’m being flippant to deal with my revulsion as I write, so please forgive my intermittent attempts at humor.
Some years ago now, another woman ex-devotee gave me the phone number of a fellow in California (where I live) who’d taught at SB’s school for (unfortunately betrayed) boys at Puttaparthi for many years. I called this fellow up, and he spilled his guts on the condition of privacy. I believe that he was justifiably concerned about repercussions as to his having spoken out, so I’ll leave him nameless. Devotee readers, please trust that what I’m saying is not fictional. I have no desire to incur negative karma by stating lies.


This fellow (X) and I spoke for over one and a half hours. He told me things I’d never imagined of. He said that that SB’s brother runs Puttaparthi like a Mafia don, demanding kickbacks and silence in exchange for the economic benefits that having a “guru” on site brings. He also said that the villagers are terrified for their lives because of SB’s brother, and that it takes a long time (if ever) for the villagers to trust outsiders and tell them what’s really going on.

X told me that over the years a few villagers and college boys came to trust him and told him nightmarish accounts. Several college boys told him of the extensive sexual molestation and swore him to secrecy because they were scared for their lives. Villagers told X that in a few instances SB had also molested women and then had them murdered, and that their bodies were buried in the hills surrounding Puttaparthi.

It apparently came to the attention of SB’s henchmen that X knew too much, and he told me that a terrified villager told him that he’d heard that X was marked for death and that he had to leave the ashram immediately to save his life.

That statement carries implications that reader can evaluate for themselves. At any rate, X fled Puttaparthi and returned to the US. He told the members of his local center what he’d experienced and was met by deaf ears and denial. He has since reestablished his career in the US and completely distanced himself from the sai organization.

X’s sincerity was almost tangible over the phone. I have no reason to doubt him. I live in Los Osos, California. I do not fear SB. It’s taken me years to be open about what I’ve experienced and heard about the false avatar in whom I once so implicitly believed.

Prime Minister of India: please you must shut Sai Baba’s operation down! He is an insult to the true masters of Mother Bharati and a cultural embarrassment to an extraordinary spiritual heritage of a nation.


Love, Kyra
