There are at least THREE people on that list who I can personally verify where not and never were molested.
68.Jagdish H.Bharwani 69.Sunil H.Bharwani 70.Naveen H.Bharwani
The very fact that these three brothers are on this list fills me with laughter. I know this family very well and they are at a loss to explain why their names appear on this fabricated list.
These Bharwani brothers who I personally know also verified that many other names on the list are totally false and were NEVER molested or in any way "intimately conected" with Sai Baba. and I am awaiting the complete list of names (or non-names) from them.
I personally believe that on the testimony of the Bharwani brothers that the entire list is fabricated, but in any case if this list is reposted in this or any other forum, I would like it if these three names were struck off from the list, as it has offended the family very much.
If anyone doubts my claim that I know this family, that is their problem. This family lives in Indonesia and have been devotees of Sai Baba since the 1960s, and are also very close family friends of mine. They have had many wonderful experiences of Sai's miracles and own a flat in PN that Sai personally allocated to them.
I lost touch with them a few years back because of the civil war in Indonesia, but I recently got back in touch and even though their access to a computer is sparing, it may take some time for them to reply and provide me with the rest of the false names.
I repeat my request on their behalf to remove the Bharwani names from the list. It is nothing but SHAMEFUL to steal a copy of ex-student's names from the Whitefield Principal's office and then post it on the Internet as a list of names of students who have been SEXUALLY MOLESTED! Or not, as it may seem.

I also object to the inclusion of:
I wonder what his father, Pramod Kumar Suri who is the publisher of Sanathana Sarathi, has to say about the inclusion of his dead son's name on this fabricated list!

Hi I am an ex-student. 1984-1986 Puttaparthy and 1981-1984 - Muddenahalli - from where Mr. Warden (Narsimha Murthy) came to Parthy and now at Whitefield.
One of my best freinds also told me his "experience." My belief is out of
the window and I am neutral now in terms of belief (not yet against).
Having said that, I have to point out the matter of fact that the names of list of students that you put up - do you have their permission to do
that? I doubt it. I know almost 80% of the students listed on your site
...there personally... I doubt some of them would have put up their names
there... what is your source here? I am not sure if you have been
molested.. which perhaps may be true but how did these folks contact you
and put themselves up there? So many names that I know are still very
"Solid devotees" - if you know what I mean....
Ravi Pindiproli - 11th and 12th - Puttaparthy Ex - 1984-86 - just in case
you may know me.
Looking forward to a reply and your identification.

Subject: read it properly
Date: Tue, 13 Aug 2002 20:17:52 IST
i jus dont know where to start. first of all i want to give a back
ground about my self.
i have studied in swamis institute from my 1st standard. i am not
afraid of even giving proof about that, in my next mail i will
scan my credentials and send it to u.after finishing my studies in
primary school i went on to the secondary school and then to the
college at brindavan(banglore).
IAM NOT AN EX DEVOTEE. I AM A DEVOTEE AND WILL REMAIN ONE EVEN IF
THERE ARE 10000000 MORE SITES AGAINST SWAMI.
i want to tell u one thing that is that when u are not really
aware of facts u should not publish them.
jus because some of the people(like u) get kicked out of those
systems u cannot('cos the good can never stay in such a good
place) say that the system is bad. i am writng this letter in my
finest fitness of body and mind.
i am a very close observer of all the happenings at the mandir.when i entered my 7th class i wanted to really study the
things that were happening in the place, i really became very
friendly to many of the FORM BOYS of my class and also my juniors
and they all narrate such good things about the inside happenings
and not even one of the guys reported a thing like that.For your
own information i have an brother of mine who is still studying in
babas college and he is also a form boy. i and my brother are
really close and never hide any thing from each other.
during my entire school days and the college days i was considered
a naughty boy and every year theer was an annual roumor that i
might get kicked out the next year.But some how due to Bhagawans
grace i survived till my degree. I was such a boy that the entire class would come to and share their problems if the had about the classmates, teachers,
i was considered a boy of a very friendly nature, i became aware of the mounting rumors about Swami on the net as well as in other
section of media. So i must confess that for a moment i was
disturbed by all the STUFF, but then i thought that it is not
proper for me to belive what others say, but to rely on myself.
then i really studied the happenings in the hostel and the mandir
from a very close quarters, many times i was even present in
places where i was not supposed to be with the help of my
influence i built over a period of time(11 years).I MUST STATE
THAT ALL THE HAPPENINIGS INSIDE THE ASHRAM ARE PERFECTLY NORMAL
AND SACRED AS U FIND IN ANY PLACE WHICH AIM FOR SPIRITUAL
my intention about signing the guest book is to tell that u are comp[letely misguided and are even misguiding many.
If u ask any visitors who come over there even if they are non
devotees u will know the value of the place,i suggest that u
should come over there with a clean mind and observe the things
that happen there, u will wonder whether really in the present
world a place like this which fully runs on morals and which is
charged with spiritual atmosphere ....
i can go on and on....really i think that u r personally ruining a chance of many
lives to do some good. even now it is not late. u will see foe
yourself that SAIBABA is ever compassionate lord and will forgive
u even though u were the cause for many devotee's down fall in
their spiritual life.
i am sure that this letter would at least make u think and question yourself whether what u have done till now is right or
I must tell u that i am also one of the chics of munni aunty
and that i had been with baba many a times with other students and
also at time alon in babas interview room and never did an
instance occur which fits in your description of what goes on in
the interview room.we never at once felt that we were being
misused or some thing like that, not even once did baba approach
any one of us in a manner u have reported in your articles or in
David bailey's finding. i must say that it is all rubbish. there
is also a lot of talk about some so called scandals in the
hospital.I have a cousin who is even now working in the hospital
and there is nothing like what u have reported happening the
hospital. MY PERSONAL ADVICE IS TO KEEP YOUR DAMN MOUTH SHUT WHEN
U DO NOT HAVE FACTS AND ATLEAST KEEP PLACES LIKE THE BABAS
HOSPITAL, WATER PROJECT ETC OUT OF ALL THIS STUFF.
what do u know the value of the service activites done by baba,
i am a personal witness to all the grama sevas that have been
organised by Swami up to date wfter my joining the primary school.
If u ever go once and question the poor villagers as to how Baba
has helped them in their life, they will narrate to u with tears
in their eyes all the things that went wrong in their life and of
how Baba entered their life and gave them a reason and a cause to
live. Babas teachings are so very inspiring and can be easily
practiced in ones life and making all the people whom u encounter
also divine and good.
Really all the websites against Swami are nothing short of garbage and rubbish. I am not at all scared to give my personal details. MY name is D.Rajesh, studied in babas institute from 1989 to 2002. My Address is: Giri Textiles, chowk bazar srikakulam.Ap. u are free to contact me at any time if u really are intrested in knowing the truth.
I hope that u will publish this letter................raj......

This message is in regards to the list of names of so-called "molested" students who schooled in Prashanthi Nilayam. I view this as false because after seeing the list of names I have recognized a couple of known names, one of whom I happen to do some research upon. After conducting my research, I found out that one of the students listed had actually taken part in a Bhajan organized by a centre in Toronto, Canada a couple years back. If this person has really been molested by Sai Baba, why would this person take part in anything associated with Sai Baba?
I urge you people to start getting your facts straight and stop wasting your time trying to conjure up such accusations and using names of ex-students as some kind of proof. It is very easy to write down the names of these students, but very difficult to prove that they have been molested! And in the case of Mr. K. Anil Kumar, why is the fact that his title is Prof. K. Anil Kumar missing from the list? And by the way, Mr. Roopak Changkakoti's name is actually spelt Rupak! Nice try guys!
One last note, and this is to a certain Mr. Tony O'Cleary. Sir you have always been spreading propoganda around about Sai Baba because of one plain and simple fact. THOSE WHO DO NOT GET THEIR WISHES FULFILLED HAVE NO OTHER OPTION THAN TO BLAME SAI BABA OR BLAME GOD RATHER THAN REALIZING THAT IT IS DUE TO SOME DISMERIT THAT THEY ARE NOT GETTING WHAT THEY WISH TO. So please stop spreading this kind of nonsense Mr. O'Cleary and I also ask others who read his messages that they do not listen to him because he has been spreading such rumours for many years and then the next thing you see his is attending a Sai Centre and singing bhajans. One particular bhajan that I happen to remember him singing is "Tara Puttaparthi Sathya". So please do not believe such a person!

I think its a group of homos. Guys !! Dont waste your time by blaming Bhagawan. You can never tarnish his image. Dont misuse WWW.

listen up chumps...if these allegations are true why in the hell would there be que's just to get a glimpse of baba ? If it was true then why has there never been a formal hearing procedure against baba? Does it not strike you that some twat out there try and make money out of these allegations like yourselves?...try, education and a good manner and you may get a job instead of having to rely on www and spreading crap. You guys are so lame...that the only way you get off is by messing with little kids...chumps!
p.s I'd love to knock you out cold...and oh yeah...kick your dog!

YOU CAN JOCK OR BLAME ON ANYTHING FOR FUN THAT TOO THAT SHOULD NOT AFFECT THAT PURTICULAR PEOPLE AT ANY COST. BUT HERE YOU ARE BLAMING ON GOD. THIS IS NOT AT ALL FARE.

And can write such Horrid and Terrible storys-I AM TRULY BLESSED I was on the right side of the elephant.ITS KARMA- I DARE YOU TO PRINT MY MESSAGE-TRUST YOUR EXPERIANCE

Dear friends, Let us stop this smear campaign against Baba. His mission to humanity is about truth and love. I know a number of close relatives who were at Sathya Sai Institutions at Prashanti and Anantapur. The only way they were affected by Sai Baba was by making them perfect human beings in every aspect and destroying their sub-human qualities. Swami's mission has touched millions of people all over the world and inspires them everyday towards selfless service and love to fellow humans in need. Let any doubting Thomas see the work in rural development, medical field , education of the poor and relief and rehabilitation inspired by Swami before attributing malafide intentions to HIM. In a world where even Jesus was crucified or Gandhi was murdered, I am not apalled to see some perverts sullying the great Deeds of Sai Baba.

I was a student of Prasanthi Nilayam for 7 years and have had interviews with Baba. I know many many students and know for SURE that there were no such cases of molestations. Are all false allegations started by some jealous malign people. Shame on those people who spread such wickedness and lies!

Mike, I am sure if someone made a sexual abuse allegations against YOU, you would be the first one DEMANDING names, times and information about the person making the accusations against you! :-) BUT, when it comes to Swami, you make every excuse imaginable against him. If you think that people who make sexual abuse claims should not be questioned and that their character does not count, I feel sorry for you.
