July 2001 ::: Basava Premanand ::: 'Betrayal' Letter
Basava Premanand's Questionable Involvement With The Letter
Dr. Abraham T. Kovoor was an Indian Rationalist (he died) who had been a critic of Sathya Sai Baba for a long time. Dr. Kovoor said, "he who is prepared to believe without verification is a fool". I whole-heartedly agree.
Dr Kovoor investigated an account by Dr. Bhagavantham about a miracle in which Sathya Sai Baba supposedly materialized a watch (which was allegedly taken from a vault in Japan) for an alleged world-reknown Japanese watchmaker. Because Dr. Bhagavantham could not provide Dr. Kovoor with the Japanese man's name, Dr. Kovoor accused Dr. Bhagavantham of "withholding information", being "insincere and dishonest", "conspiring", "propagandizing" and having a "vested interest" because Dr. Bhagavantham could not substantiate his claim attributed to an anonymous Japanese man.
Indeed, anyone who makes a serious allegation under the guise of anonymity could legitimately be seen as "withholding information", being "insincere and dishonest", "conspiring", "propagandizing" and having a "vested interest". Despite Basava Premanand agreeing with and praising Dr. Kovoor's logic, Basava Premanand turned right around and accepted and disseminated an anonymous story of sexual impropriety alleged against Sathya Sai Baba.
I think that it is time that Basava Premanand start living up to the same standards he lauded Dr. Kovoor for but failed to practice himself. Consequently, I will uphold Dr. Kovoor's logic regarding this anonymous letter written against Sathya Sai Baba.
First, here are some facts about this letter:
- Basava Premanand allegedly received the anonymous letter in early December 1998.
- Basava Premanand claimed he sent a registered letter on December 9th 1998 to the (unnamed) Vice Chancellor of the Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning asking to investigate the claims made in the letter. Basava Premanand alleged that several letters were sent to him from Sai Students alleging sexual abuse.
- Basava Premanand decided to publish the anonymous letter in the Indian Skeptic in August 1999.
When I first read this letter, I was stuck at the amazing similarity it had to Basava Premanand's own writing style. I also had serious doubts about this letter because the anonymous writer referred to Sathya Sai Baba as "Babaji". This is highly unusual as the added "ji" denotes great respect and reverence in India. Although many are well acquainted with the name of "Gandhi", most are not aware that many Indians refer to Gandhi as "Gandhiji", indicating great reverence and respect for him.
Only an ardent devotee would address Sathya Sai Baba as "Babaji". The anonymous letter allegedly received by Basava Premanand was not written by a devotee, but by someone who clearly disliked Sathya Sai Baba and saw him as a cheat, liar and fraud. Since the anonymous writer referred to Sathya Sai Baba as "babaji", this clearly suggests a cover up in his/her writing style. By substituting "Babaji" with "Sai Baba", one will notice the striking writing style, very similar to Basava Premanand's.
The following is the anonymous 'Betrayal By Sai Baba' letter: Please Be Advised: Graphic Language:
The Anonymous 'Betrayal By Sai Baba' Letter:
This is the sad story of betrayal of faith and love, of taking advantage and exploitation of a very base nature. What is being written may sound blasphemy, sacrilege or fanciful, but if one opens his eyes and uses his brain, it will turn out to be nothing but truth. It is a truth which many know and ignore because it does not affect them in any way, then there are those who know nothing and are innocent. This is the story of life in Sri Sathya Sai Hostel for Boys. Devoted parent send their tiny tots with the firm belief that they will undergo all round developments and will be under the direct presence of Baba Ji. But few parents actually know what happens to their loved ones. What happens to boys is a saga of betrayal of the most banal kind known to mankind since ages. Let us take it from the Primary school level itself. The Principal of the Primary school Mrs. Munni Kaul knows it only too well that her survival there purely depends on sending in the front good-looking, usually fair and sometimes girlish boys, because as is well known Baba Ji has a weakness for such boys. These are the innocent boys you see, who are forced to come in the front, on some pretext or the other, holding cards, trays etc. This in itself is nothing serious, but what follow later is.
These young, good-looking boys who are generally not even in their teens are for some time closely watched by Babaji. Later some day these small boys are called for personal interview. What happens to these tiny tots in the interview room is known to many but all keep mum because their very survival depends on it. These small boys are taken one by one in the inner interview room behind the curtain by Babaji. For some time he fondles them and then suddenly he opens their zippers and pulls down their pants and underpants. Now Babaji massages and fondles the sex organs of the small boys, who know nothing and take it as some form of spirituality. Babaji generally hugs and kisses the boys while they are stark naked, then sends them back. This is in itself a traumatic and sickening experience for a boy of about 5th of 6th standard. Then there are certain advantages too, these boys are labelled as FORM BOYS and are kept in the forefront by the Headmistress, who actually is well aware of the fate of these young ones. These boys generally get chains, rings and watches from Babaji as special blessings or in a worldly sense, the 'payment' for 'selling' their bodies without their knowledge.
For the kind information of authorities (those who are aware and maintain silence and those who know nothing), Mrs. Munni Kaul, the Head Mistress of Primary School, herself is a confirmed child molestress. This can be ascertained by Authorities (if they have the will and courage), if they could pick just a few good looking (and fair) boys from class 6th and ask them with love and in confidence, what Munni Aunti forces them to do. She is known to sexually abuse good looking boys and girls. Staff members can easily get this information But then one cannot blame the Head Mistress because her survival depends on her supplying these boys for Babaji.
Now comes the second and other part of this story. All this does not stop at Primary School. Now the boys come to Sri Sathya Sai Higher Secondary School. Now the boys are in 8th class. Some teachers in the hostel are well aware what the full set-up is about. They keep an eye for good looking and fair skinned young boys and repeatedly send them in the front of the mandir on some pretext or the other till the boys catch the attention of Babaji. Again the same vicious and revolting scenes are repeated. The teacher who sends these innocent kids up to 12th class, gets a pat on his back from Babaji, for his 'choice'. These boys also experience the same traumatic situation of standing naked in the inner interview room and getting their sex organs caressed by Babaji, who tells them this is pure love. The innocent boys keep their mouth shut and in turn receive such rewards as a room leadership, watches, pens etc. One of the senior school teachers who has been 'supplying' such young boys to Babaji, is well aware that what happens to boys is nothing short of sexual molestation but keeps quiet about the whole affair as he personally has nothing to loose, after all, his relatives are not getting molested. In fact this senior teacher acts as a pimp and acknowledge his role by calling himself as a Tetra-Pack Supplier to Babaji, Tetra Packs being the innocent good looking boys. This lecturer is no one also but Mr. Sai Surendranath who has sent countless young boys towards the cauldron for sexual molestation by Babaji, and he in turn gets power, recognition and the so called 'Chances' etc., for his dirty role.
Most of the inmates of Sri Sathya Sai Hostel are well aware of all this, but their mouths are sealed. The boys who are not so good looking and dark wonder why Babaji gives 'chances' to good/girlish looking or handsome and fair boys only. They think and think and loose interest in life in the Hostel. On the other hand the Chosen 'Form' boys only know what happens inside the interview room, they have their own traumatic experiences and generally tend to develop a Homosexual bend of mind. This is the main reason for rampant cases of Homosexuality in Sathya Sai Hostels.
Now comes the final stage in this story. Boys finish their 12th class. Most of the sexually molested 'Form' boys who have become moral and physical (and physiological) wrecks, leave the institutions. This is the main reason why boys from secondary school do not join the Institute. Those who are dark & not-so-good looking, think they did not get chances, get frustrated and leave; and those selected few blue eyed good looking, fair skinned boys who are regularly sexually molested by Babaji, leave due to trauma and frustration. But a third category of boys who are of both the above mentioned categories stay back. Some think maybe they will get chances in future and the good looking ones believe that when Babaji molested them it was for their own good and was a spiritual experience not to be told to anybody.
For the admission to the Institute, as is well known, the so-called 'Form' boys and good looking boys are always given preference, irrespective of their academic or intellectual abilities. Everybody knows that the entrance exams and interviews, group discussions etc. are just a farce. A list of so called 'Form' boys is selected even before the entrance exams are conducted – this is common knowledge. And for courses like MBA, Research etc., generally boys are selected more for their appearance by Babaji than for anything else. These boys are the very same good looking, fair and sometimes girlish boys. In addition some stupid common boys also get in by freak of chance.
The fact is so well known that senior hostel lecturers know well in advance about a particular student, whether he will get the MBA seat or not. What happens inside interview room is common… knowledge, this is highlighted by the fact that Mr. B.N. Narasimhamurthy, the previous warden of Sri Sathya Sai Hostel, Prasanthinilayam, has coined a term for boys who are surviving an benefitting because of their appearance and because they have been molested. He calls these boys INTUITION BOYS, the term is familiar to most of the hostel staff members and some senior students too. It is a well know fact that seats like MBA, Research Assistantship etc., are almost always (with a few exceptions) given to those Internal candidates who are Intuition Boys (to quote Sri Narasimhamurthy!). These are the boys you see in MBA/Research, who are generally handsome or good looking or girlish who have been sometime exploited and sexually molested by Babaji repeatedly from sometimes their school days onwards.
If all this would have stopped just here, it could have taken lightly (:), but unfortunately it is not so. There are more advanced stages. Babaji has a weakness for boys who are either fair and good looking and girlish or sometimes tall cacho type boys too. This is a common trait in homosexual acts. Out of the chosen band of Intuition Boys (Form boys etc.), some especially good looking/girlish boys and sometimes others are selected by Babaji for special 'grace'. This is what happens to them; Babaji who had groomed and molested such a boy from school days telling the boy that he was his father and mother; now starts saying that the boy was his 'wife'. Now starts the more traumatic, dirty and bizzare acts. Babaji sends for such chosen Intuition Boys special messages to the hostel (to warden etc.) early in the morning usually, when rest of the ignorant lot is faithfully observing silence, listening to extolling speeches or chanting the glory of the lord. Sometimes car/jeep are also sent to whisk away such special Intuition Boys. These boys are taken in for an interview. As usual their pants and underwear are pulled down, but generally these boys have reached puberty and in most cases after little caressing by Babaji, they get an erection and ejaculate, which is wiped by Babaji using the same white kerchief, he used to wipe his hands. Now he again hugs, crushes and kisses the boys and says that the boy is his wife. Usually the boys is too shocked and was-struck at what happened, because he never expected it. Usually the poor boys take it as a spiritual experience.
But unfortunately there is a final stage too. Sometimes Babaji goes a step further in this act. Sometimes he asks the special Intuition Boys, who are standing stark naked and probably with an erection, to bend and touch his feet, while the unfortunate and flabbergasted boy is doing so, Babaji covers the boys head with his robe and while the boy rises up, lifts his pitambar. The boy gets a shock when he sees that Babaji too has an erection Babaji thrusts his erect sexual organ in the poor boys mouth and asks the boy to suck and lick it and forces the boy to do so. Finally the boy is forced to suck and drink the ejaculated semen of Babaji. Usually, with such advanced cases of Intuition Boys (many are the famous singers, tabla players, dancers and other usually girlish characters), Babaji also licks and sucks the sexual organs of such boys. Imagine all this happens just behind the thick curtain of the inner interview room. Babaji usually pushes boys in the left corner of the inner room, just near the door, and from the outer interview room, one can clearly hear the sound of a pant zipper being opened and sometimes kissing and rarely sucking noises too. At such times if one sits just near Babaji's throne in the outer room, one can sometimes actually see boys being molested if the curtain moves. And people like Mr. B.N. Narasimhamurthy have actually seen boys being molested with their own eyes, but keep mum, for their own selfish survival, branding this dirty act as spirituality. After all such people don't loose anything, they just act as pimps, supplying fresh batch of Intuition Boys (in other words Male Prostitutes), anyway, these innocent boys are not related to them in any case. The result is that usually these boys become Homosexuals themselves after being molested from a young age and after experiencing the worst form of oral homosexual acts. Now one such boy is Mr. Sai Giridhar who recently shot into limelight by sexually abusing about 40 small school boys in the hostel. But unfortunately (or fortunately for Mr. Sai Giridhar), most of the boys he molested were already sexually molested Intuition Boys of Babaji such as Sai Ram (class X), Hidayat Ulah (class IX) etc. Moreover Mr. Sai Giridhar himself has been an Intuition Boy (one of the blue eyed boys of Mr. B.N. Narahimhamurthy too!) of some repute, so he was neither thrown out of the hostel nor from the Intiution Band, which incidentally is also known as Intuition Band as most of the boys are Intuition Boys earlier selected by Sri B.N. Narasimhamurthy & Sri Sai Surendranath and later by its questionable leader Mr. Sai Giridhar). As is well know, there were lots of grumblings but the entire case was burried and Mr. Sai Giridhar was 'pardoned' by Babaji, may be the small Intuition Boys were liability or whatever the case may have been. In fact, most of the hostel lecturers know that their survival depends on projecting and pushing as many Intuition Boys, as possible. These lecturers, therefore take these poor boys who are nothing other than male prostitutes by now, and push them in front of Babaji for various dances, dramas, music groups etc., where these poor boys play a prominent role, attract the attention of Babaji and are sexually molested repeatedly. In some cases Babaji himself asks for special Intuition Boys to be always in the forefront of various programmes. The poor boys so called chances purely depend on how easily he sells his body to Babaji by pulling down his pants and exposing his genitals and how frequently he does it.
If any particular Intuition Boy refuses or pulls away Babaji's hands from his genitals, Babaji gives that particular boy a cold treatment or the so called 'OUT OF FORM'. If the boy agrees to open his pants, he easily comes back in form and is "pardoned" or he may even loose his MBA/Research seat and is branded as a Bad/Anti boy and is usually expelled from the Institute/Hostel. Boys who have earlier been Intuition Boys and have refused to be further molested by Babaji are always ignored and put down in all areas till they soften up and in many cases they get frustrated and leave or are ready for a series of new molestations.
Frequently Babaji organizes trips to Kodaikanal and Ooty etc. These trips each year are actually meant for a few selected Intuition Boys who are generally handsome, fair or girlish. To cover up the entire trip some other boys/staff members are also taken who are not Intuition Boys. The selection is generally made by Babaji in consultation with Sai Surendra Nath or Ratnakar. These people keep an eye on exceptionally good looking new boys or old Intuition Boys from various classes such as MBA, PG and Research etc. But actually the entire trip is meant for Babaji to enjoy just a few special Intuition Boys. Babaji call such boys in his car and while travelling also molests them. Sometimes he caresses Intuition Boys while travelling in the bus too. But Babaji makes it a point t sit next to the chosen Intuition Boy only, and while others are listening to high metaphysics, Babaji's deft hands always are on the poor Intuition Boys crotch and he is busy caressing the boys genitals. Most of the boys in the trip know this while some are ignorant too.
It is common knowledge and those of you who are Intuition Boys know only too well, that Babaji always tells the boys after sexually molesting him "Don't tell this to anybody". So the poor boy keeps his mouth shut out of of fear and shame and cannot even tell it to his parents. Babaji always instructs boys not to be very close and jealously guards the Intuition Boys not to mix with the other ordinary/dark and unhandsome lot; Babaji does not even permit friendship between tow Intuition Boys and personally taunts boys and sometimes even throws away such boys. The sole reason being secrecy, because if Intuition Boys were to become friendly, Babaji is scared that his secret of sexual molestation will come out in the open. But the fact is that at least 50% of the Institute Boys are aware what happens in the inner interview room. Most of the poor Intuition Boys are nothing but male prostitutes and thus the hostels can be nothing but houses of ill repute where these poor souls are kept for the sole purpose of using their bodies. This is the main reason why Babaji gives no importance only to the appearance and skin colour of poor boys – a very dirty type of Apartheid. Once Babaji is satisfied or fed up with some Intuition Boy, the poor wretch is thrown out if he has become too big for his boots or he is frustrated b Babaji and also by Authorities who harass the poor boy at the instance and orders of Babaji. Generally the poor Intuition Boy quits, a physical and moral wreck, a social misfit because if not physically, at least mentally he is a homosexual or a gay.
The main reason why boys (both normal and Intuition Boys), do not like to continu longer in Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning is that either they are sexually molested by Babaji and thus frustrated with a male protitute's life or they were always ignored because perhaps they refused to open their pants to Babaji or were quite unhandsome/dark complexioned etc., and hence not only ignored by Babaji but were automatically ignored by Authorities too. At least, some Authorities are aware that boys are sexually molested by Babaji, but either they think it is some form of spirituality (:) or they just keep their mouth shut for their survival and for the sake of power and and pomp they get by acting ignorant about the fate of poor boys who are forcibly being converted into Homosexuals. Most of the senior boys in the hostel are aware of this high treason and hypocricy, they tolerate it for some time and then quit. The topic is so delicate that they can neither tell it to Authorities (who will not believe them in any case) nor even to their parents. These frustrated boys (and Intuition Boys) leave the Institute and Babaji has just one comment. He catches a bunch of his hair which incidentally is regularly dyed with an imported dye and says "I have seen so many, none stay". After all which normal human being can perpetually stay as a male prostitute or a Homosexual unless he is real a Homosexual, some of these find it profitable and do stay back (example: Sai Giridhar Narahari, etc.), but in due course even hard core homosexuals cannot take the realities for too long and say quits. Now Babajis comments "Pelli Pichhi" or "Marriage Sickness". Hence the full matter is conveniently buried. The Intuition Boys are used and when have no charms left in them, are thrown out (always with a bad name) and their departure is linked with Marriage Sickness. Of course any normal human being marries. Babaji is strictly against marriage, after all his enormous and monstrous sexual demands are daily fulfilled by molestation, sodomy, oral sex and by masturbation of poor Intuition Boys, but how long can a human being take all this. This after using up a boy Babaji throws him out like a spider throws the empty shell of a fly after sucking its vatal juices (Manish Sharma, Anand Sur, Hidesh Gupta, Gagan Manchanda etc., are classic examples of used and thrown Intuition Boys – such boys are so frustrated that sometimes due to their Gay/Homosexual tendencies they are 'social misfits' and hence again come back to Babaji who may again get "interested" in the poor by and thus the series of sexual acts start a fresh).
Generally Babaji gives some money (usually Rs.500/-) to an Intuition Boy after molesting him-this can be taken as the amount for buying the body of the poor soul. Usually Babaji blesses Intuition boys with flashy watches, golden pens, goldchains and pendants, rings, bracelets etc. which are the 'payments' for the dirty Homosexual violations he does with such boys. Usually the number of such 'gifts' are indicators of the degree of sexual connection the boy has with Babaji, it can be mere caressing of genitals. Masturbation sodomy or dirty oral sex. These are the smart good looking boys who always sit in the front rows in the mandir sometimes on Babaji's express command, because they might be 'needed' any time. These are the boys almost selected for distribution of various trinkets and clothes etc., by Babaji, and even when they go inside to pick up a box of apples for instance, sometimes Babaji corners some special Intuition Boy and has a 'quickie' (a quick caressing of genitals), while others are kept busy elsewhere or sent out of the interview room on some pretext. So, those who are Intuition Boys can understand and those who are not, need not unnecessarily be envious of these poor Intuition Boys, because they pay a heavy price to be in form, they are actually made prostitutes and are forced to sell their bodies to Babaji.
If you are a little observant and not blind with emotion and pseudo-spirituality, you cam make a few simple observations. Lets take the creation of Vibhuti. Most of the senious hostel teachers know about how it is done but keep mum. As soon as Babaji comes out keep observing his left hand, it will be closed. In the hand are about 5-6 small balls of vibhuti which are made with the help of water or a mild gum and dried. This is done by Babaji personally upstairs. As soon as Babaji comes out of the interview room, immediately he takes a letter and holds it in the left hand which is now kept upwards, hence the balls do not fall. Now while talking he deftly shifts one ball to the right hand, faces the palm down and rotates the palm, the vibhuti ball is always kept between the 1st and the 2nd fingers; while giving the vibhuti he simply crushes the ball and gives it to the waiting Birthday Boy. Some students have actually found these vibhuti balls which fell down accidentally from Babaji's hands. People like Mr. Khayaldas are well aware of how vibhuti is created and by experience they even know when and where Babaji will do so. Another place to observe is in front of Vinayaka, near the arch, just between the ladies and gents. Here Babaji almost always passes a bunch of letters to his right hand along with a ball of vibhuti. Experienced boys and old hostel staff members have dubbed his acts as "Changing the baton". Now Babaji immediately 'creates' vibhuti for some VIP's who are sitting there, this is very significant because a large number of people observe this 'miracle'. You too can observe all this if you sit with a level head and sharp eyes and notice Babaji's hand movements closely. Sometimes if you are lucky you can actually see the vibhuti ball being transferred to the right hand for creation. Creations inside the interview room are of different type. If you are sharp you would have noticed that Babaji does not allow anybody in the interview room immediately after selecting a particular batch. He goes inside alone and spends some time before calling the group. If by chance some ignorant person happens to go in following Babaji, he is invariably almost literally pushed out by Babaji or pulled out by the obese Mr. Khayaldas, who knows what Babaji is doing inside. Actually Babaji spends a few minutes in keeping the things to be "materialized" ready; these are kept in various places, behind cushion, sometimes behind the curtain or on window sills of inner room or the sofa etc. These items such as chains, rings, lockets, Talismans, even sweets and watches are later picked up and 'created' with a motion of hand in front of preconditioned and almost awe-struck and hypnotized devotees. Those flashy golden Parker pens and Papermates which you see in the pockets of Intuition Boys are kept in neatly stacked boxes in upstairs rooms of mandir. If you are an Intuition Boy you may as well find same if you are chosen to work upstairs', if you are observant, not emotional. The watches are made by normal human beings from all over the world. These watches too are kept in their hundreds in upstairs rooms. These are usually presented in bulk by wealthy devotees. Lockets, rings etc. are made of various types and sizes and these are generally supplied by two people, one is Chettiar's (the fat man from Madurai on Wheelchair) son-in-law, and the other is a dark, balding furitive looking man with specks, always tucking a small bag in his right armpit, he is Mr. Aswathnarayana from Ananatapur.
Babaji has recently started 'creating' a lot of Titan quartz watches, but unfortunately (or fortunately) these are manufactured in Bangalore. All Titan watches have a registered number at the back, using this number if you go to the regional office of Titan company to Bangalore, you can easily trace to which retailer it was supplied. Some titan watches have been traced in this manner and the names of people who purchased them in bulk (bulk purchases are always remembered by shop keepers) for Babaji may surprise you. But of course, this simple investigation can be done by anybody who can read the English language and is little patient with the Titan sales office.
There are certain instances of Babaji having some connections with ladies and young girls too. Perhaps this explains those crazy foreign ladies who are not allowed inside and are sometimes beaten up. May be this also explains the bodies of mostly young women which are found in the hills and also the bodies of young women which are sometimes carried in the green jeep at unearthly hours and are either burnt near Chitravathi or buried near it. One wonders how safe one's sisters and daughters studying in Primary school are?
So this in brief is the true life of any student residing in Sri Sathya Sai Hostel. Those of you who are Intuition Boys, already know all this, those who are not would have heard of it and some may not have even dreamt of all this. But this is the stark truth, which is really bitter. Being an Intuition Boy is shameful in itself because it is the life of a slave or male prostitute, although it carries several 'perks' and incentives like name, fame, lime-light an jaunts to Kodaikanal etc., perhaps this time by plane! But in the end the poor Intuition Boy is left high and dry (in literal sense) and generally gets frustrated, looses interest in life or becomes a homosexual. It is for youth to decide. One thing is sure, this is no form of spirituality, see the faces of Intuition Boys, those fair and girlish boys (Dante', class 9th) with black rounds around their eyes, see the faces of boys who are forced to drink semen to get an MBA seat or a room leadership etc. And see who gets the best all-rounder gold medal. Incidentally Mr. Sai Giridhar is also a gold medalist, (an 'all rounder' indeed!) with about 40 or so sexual abuse of small innocent boys to his credit. These gold medals are almost always given to Intuition Boys, with a few exception the reason will be quite obvious if one has a look at the individual.
Homosexuality can never be equated with any form of spirituality and what Babaji is practising on young and innocent boys is nothing but a blatant homosexual act. No religion of the world promotes homosexuality. There is no mention of it in vedas. And Babaji is definitely not a Brahmachari because he destroys the very essence of Brahmacharya in innocent boys of such tender age who have not even reached puberty. This is also no way to project spirituality and talk about not marrying. This a simple and dirty technique by Babaji to satiate his sexual urge (which appears monstrous and insatiable because sometimes he calls 3 or 4 Intuitions for "personal interviews"). Neither Lord Rama, Krishna nor Jesus was a homosexual. An avatar can definitely not be a Homosexual. Otherwise Babaji should practise this special grace with all males or all hostel students, WHY only with handsome, fair skinned, tall or girlish looking boys, why NOT with the less smart dark-skinned ones? This itself shows that he is crazy after looks and wants to molest only such individuals. He does the same with most of the smart foreigners too, one latest one is being lampooned as "shyama", a tall, smart looking German with long curly blond hair and homosexual looks and tendencies. One look at his face will tell you what happens to him inside the inner interview room. In Bible only one individual is supposed to love homosexuality – The Satan or the anti-christ. It is for you to decide, especially those who are Intuition Boys, whether after coming in the fold of Babaji, you have learnt any spirituality or only outward show and hypocracy of the worst order. You should introspect whether you have strengthened or lost faith in God. It is common-sense that when Satan appears, he will never proclaim himself as Satan he will only 'act' as God and confuse and destroy the faith of mankind and cause confusion and mayhem as you see in world today and talk about bringing love, peace and harmony – where are they?
This is the epilogue of this sad story. A story of high treason, betrayal and exploitation. In the name of Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher learning, young boys are being frustrated and are sexually molested, their energies wasted. The boys suffer internally, they cannot tell their traumatic experiences to anybody and end up at hollow tombs. If you seen an Intuition Boy next time, treat him well because he is actually suffering inside, be kind to him. Staff members can now understand what are the sufferings of Hostel Boys, why they are not natural and why Intuition Boys cannot concentrate on Academics, because basically they are kept for a dirtier purpose, not for Academics at all, which is just an eyewash. In fact the entire Institute and its infrastructure is actually meant for a few Intuition Boys rest is all an eye wash. Even when Babaji calls boys for group interviews, he sees to it that only certain boys sit near his feet while the others are busy listening to high metaphysics and spirituality, Babaji's deft toes are busy playing with the private parts of the poor boys doing "paadseva". And the long robe covers everything. Most of the people around know but keep quiet. It should be known that this country is not United States of America where homosexuality is recognised. In India homosexuality is a punishable offence and child molestation too is a bigger offence. If this issue is raised in public the outcry will be stupendous and those involve directly or indirectly will be answerable. This is not meant to destroy your faith in Babaji, this is just an eye opener and reminder that know what you are doing, if you are a normal boy, be happy that you are not an Intuition Boy, if you are an Intuition Boy, get rid of the shameful prefix and lead a normal life, if you are a staff member do something for the boys and their problems, understand them, there is nothing more you can do, if you are an Administrator and not aware of the happenings, its high time you open your eyes; and on the other hand if you are a Senior person of some authority and are aware of the molestation and sexual abuse of young boys and think that it is spirituality, know that you are wrong and God will never pardon you. On the Day of Judgment you will have to pay for your sins, then it will be too late and these very same innocent Intuition Boys will point an accusing finger at YOU, because you helped in destroying their life.
This could have been published in a book or a magazine, but then you would not have got it to read so easily, because it would have been classified as 'anti material'. So read it and pass it on to a friend in whom you have absolute confidence and who will not betray you. Do believe in God, he will protect you, and THINK and OBSERVE.
Comments About The Anonymous 'Betrayal By Sai Baba' Letter:
Oddly enough, even though this anonymous letter was allegedly sent to Basava Premanand, it was not addressed to him. The anonymous writer said:
"This could have been published in a book or a magazine, but then you would not have got it to read so easily, because it would have been classified as 'anti material'."
As if the letter could be classified as anything other than Anti-Sai material. Since the anonymous author sent the letter only to Basava Premanand, it remains unclear how people would have had "easier" access to it than if it was submitted to a book or magazine. Suspiciously enough, no one else received the letter besides Basava Premanand.
The letter is written in third person. The anonymous author told a story in which he was not involved. The anonymous writer never (at any time) claimed to be Sai Student and never (at any time) claimed he was sexually abused! This is important to remember because Premanand claimed that the letter was sent to him by a Sai Student who claimed he was sexually abused. How does Premanand know that to be a fact when nowhere in the letter that claim was made? Anyone could have faked the letter.
Towards the very end of the letter, the Christian concept of the "Judgment Day" was tossed in. This could have been a not-so-clever ploy to conceal the person's true beliefs or it was written by a Fundamentalist Christian who clearly had an Anti-Sai agenda to push. Either scenario is very troubling.
Nevertheless, there are some striking similarities between this anonymous letter and articles authored by Basava Premanand that needs to be brought to the attention of the general public.
In the anonymous letter, the writer described Sathya Sai Baba's production of vibuthi. The anonymous writer said under the 'Miracles' section:
"As soon as Babaji comes out keep observing his left hand, it will be closed. In the hand are about 5-6 small balls of vibhuti which are made with the help of water or a mild gum and dried. This is done by Babaji personally upstairs. As soon as Babaji comes out of the interview room, immediately he takes a letter and holds it in the left hand which is now kept upwards, hence the balls do not fall. Now while talking he deftly shifts one ball to the right hand, faces the palm down and rotates the palm, the vibhuti ball is always kept between the 1st and the 2nd fingers; while giving the vibhuti he simply crushes the ball and gives it to the waiting Birthday Boy. Some students have actually found these vibhuti balls which fell down accidentally from Babaji's hands. Sometimes if you are lucky you can actually see the vibhuti ball being transferred to the right hand for creation."
At home.hetnet.nl/~ex_baba/engels/ articles/premanandmiracles.html, Basava Premanand said:
"The godman's devotees argue as to how vibhuti which is in powder form can be hidden in the palms when the palm is kept down and moved in circles. They think that when the hands are kept palms down, the ash being powder would fall down and come to a wrong conclusion that the godman has really created vibhuti. What the godmen do is, that they mix perfume in the ash or purchase perfumed ash and make a dow by adding starch solution (Kanji water is the best) and then make small balls and dry them. These balls are hidden between the thumb and the pointing finger and after circling the hand palms down and while raising the hand to produce vibhuti, bring the vibhuti ball to the finger tips, powder the same and give it to the devotee."
Both refer to "vibuthi ball" and "small balls". Both describe the process identically. Both talk about how the vibuthi is made into balls, where Baba allegedly hides the vibuthi balls, how Baba allegedly transfers the vibuthi ball from the left hand to the right and how he crushes it and "gives it to the" recipient. Others who have given their own interpretation on how Sathya Sai Baba materializes vibuthi call the "balls" either "pellets" or "tablets". Strangely enough, the anonymous writer used the exact phrases that Basava Premanand used. These indisputable similarities fully make my case that Basava Premanand appeared to have faked the 'Betrayed By Sai Baba' letter.
At http://www.bcskeptics.info/resources/skeptopaedia/s/saibaba/5mater.html, Premanand again referred to the "vibuthi ball". Coincidence (1)?
Basava Premanand and the anonymous writer spell "practicing" as "practising". Coincidence (2)?
At home.hetnet.nl/~ex-baba/engels/articles/whomurdered.html, Basava Premanand referred to rupee amounts as "Rs. 5/-", "Rs. 10/-", etc. The anonymous writer made mention of "Rs. 500/-" (written in the exact way that Basava Premanand writes it). Coincidence (3)?
Basava Premanand tends to cite example after example and ended these examples with "etc.". Premanand's "etc." fetish is a trademark characteristic to his writings. In the anonymous letter, there are no less than 21 "etc.'s". Couple this with the similar usage of parenthesis and things begin to appear very suspicious. Coincidence (4)?
Basava Premanand is also known to capitalize certain words and phrases in articles he writes, just like the anonymous author did. Intriguing enough, the anonymous letter ended with the comment, "THINK and OBSERVE". Basava Premanand has reiterated this very same idea when he said, "The way in which I expose miracles, is by collecting as much as information on the miracle, then observe the miracle once, twice or many times and find out the trick behind it. The thing is to watch and reason out why they do each thing each move, and you get the answer. I am also happy that my visiting West Bengal has helped hundreds of youths to start thinking." Coincidence (5)?
At http://www.indian-skeptic.org/html/is_v03/3-10-8.htm, there is mention to, "agile hands deft at conjuring tricks". On the anonymous letter, it made mention to, "Babaji's deft hands" , "he deftly shifts one ball to the right hand" and "Babaji's deft toes are busy". Coincidence (6)?
At http://www.indian-skeptic.org/html/svm_cont.htm, there is mention to, "Producing lockets, talismans, medals, rings etc." On the anonymous letter, there is mention to, "chains, rings, lockets, talismans, even sweets". Coincidence (7)?
At http://www.indian-skeptic.org/html/is_v01/1-12-5.htm, Basava Premanand talked about Christianity. The Christian undertone towards the end of the letter is clearly disingenuous and could have easily been added to cover-up the writer's personal beliefs. Consequently, it certainly appears that this anonymous letter was written by Basava Premanand. Although this cannot be said with 100% certainty, until Basava Premanand divulges the name to the person who allegedly wrote this anonymous letter, he will be suspected as having written it. Basava Premanand should know better than dispersing an anonymous letter anyway. According to Dr. Kovoor, Basava Premanand is purposely "withholding information", being "insincere and dishonest", "conspiring", "propagandizing" and having some sort of "vested interest" in distributing an anonymous and unverifiable letter against Sathya Sai Baba.
Furthermore, most of the names to the alleged sexually-abusive instructors and sexually-abused students, were taken from a list provided on the ExBaba website, at home.hetnet.nl/~ex-baba/engels/articles/list.html that was taken from an anonymous, online message board at quicktopic.com. If this list is genuine, why hasn't anyone helped these boys file even one court case against Sathya Sai Baba? No one has even tried to file a court case. This proves that the anonymous letter has no factual basis and was written using internet resources, rather than legitimate and genuine resources. Despite these facts, Basava Premanand continues to solicit this anonymous hate letter on Anti-Sai websites.
Examples of Basava Premanand's writing style:
I emailed Basava Premanand on November 19th 2004 about this anonymous letter. My email was concluded with the same comments that Dr. Kovoor made to Dr. Bhagavantham (with a slight modification). I ended by saying:
"Provide me with the correct name and address to the anonymous letter above. Absence of any reply from you for this letter also, will confirm my firm belief that you are an agent of Lies and Deception, spreading false propoganda with ulterior motives and a vested interest. Failure to provide a name, or refusal to do so, will prove that you are the author of the letter and the same will be reported on my site."
Needless to say, "Since there has been no reply, it confirms my belief that Basava Premanand is in collusion with the Anti-Sai movement."
Update: April 19th 2005:
Click Here to view screen captures to SaiPetition.net, Robert Priddy's Ex-Office Bearers Page and the BBC text to the Secret Swami Documentary. Basava Premanand personally made a submission to SaiPetition.net (which was subsequently replicated on Robert Priddy's Ex-Office Bearers Page) stating that he was a follower of Sri Sathya Sai Baba from 1968 to 1974 and was the "best worker in the SSB Org., Podanur". However, in the Secret Swami Documentary, Basava Premanand claimed that he was never a follower and had been trying to investigate SSB since 1968 itself. To further this argument, Click Here to read an article that was published in the The Independent, on December 24th 2000, where it was claimed that Premanand had "spent nearly 50 years touring Indian villages, drawing crowds of people by demonstrating how "miracles" are performed". When this article was written, Premanand was 71 (he was born in 1930). Consequently, Premanand had been exposing gurus since the age of 21 or 22. This means that in 1968 (at the age of 38, or 16 years after he was a rationalist) Premanand was not a follower of Sathya Sai Baba. Why did Premanand lie?
