About the Speaker:


Sri Srinivas H.S.D. hails from Hyderabad and is indebted to his parents, Sri. H.R.Seshagiri Rao and Smt.Leela Rao for imbibing good values in him at a young age. After completing his B.K from CBIT, Hyderabad in 1989, he joined the Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning to pursue his MBA. With Bhagawan's blessings, he joined the Super Specialty Hospital at Puttaparthi in 1991. After serving in the hospital for 14 years he joined KMRI, an emergency healthcare response initiative in Hyderabad where he was the Head of AP operations. Currently he is working with Reliance Foundation in Mumbai responsible for their Healthcare initiatives.


The designation which he cherishes the most is being called a Sai Student, and the greatest period of his life is the time he spent in Prashanti Nilayam. He is one of those chosen few who has been blessed by Bhagawan with lessons for life at HIS Lotus feet.


Please join us for an enchanting evening with your family and friends.


With all our Love,


Sri Sathya Sai Students

A wellness centre in Dharmakshethra.



A wellness center was inaugurated in Dharmakshethra on 5th April.



Sri. Indulal Shah the grand old man graced the occasion... in spite of his advanced age. When tributes were paid, and a flower Bouquet was offered to him, there was standing ovation inside Shanthi Deep, with prolonged hand clapping. Mumbai was showing their deep- rooted Love and devotion towards this Bheeshmacharya.



Sri. Ratnakar, who had arrived from Puttaparthi spoke well during the function. He narrated a Sai event, which he had witnessed during his college days. Swami with the selected students were proceeding to Ooty, in Tamil Nadu. They were passing through Bandipur forest. Somewhere in half way, Swami’s car was caught in a traffic jam. Hundreds of cars had been stranded. When enquired the students came to know that a rogue forest elephant was standing in the middle of the road, blocking the traffic. The elephant had been standing there for more than 1-1/2 hours. When knew about it, Swami gave direction to overtake the stranded vehicles and go near the Elephant. Swami looked through the car window. The elephant also looked at Bhagavan, and quietly moved some 20 feet away and allowed all the cars pass through. Late in the evening a group of devotees arrived in Ooty. When enquired why they are so late, they explained that a Rogue elephant was standing in the middle of the road, and they waited for over 10 hours for the elephant to move from there. It means that the elephant had again come back to middle of the road, after allowing Swami’s troupe to pass through.

One more Swami’s quote was mentioned. “When your face was tarnished with dirt, there is no use in washing the mirror. The face need to be washed so that mirror will also look neat”....

With Love & regards, Mumbai Srinivasan.
