Puttaparthi: Spiritual leader Sri Sathya Sai Baba died at the Sathya
Sai super speciality hospital at Puttaparthi in Andhra Pradesh's
Anantapur district today.
The 84-year-old was admitted to hospital on March 28 with breathing
and heart problems. Early on Thursday morning, doctors had said his
condition was very critical and most of his organs were not
responding to treatment. The condition of his liver and his low
blood pressure were causing concern, they had said.
Godman to some, miracle-man to others and revered as God by lakhs of
his followers, Sathya Sai Baba had the rich, famous and powerful
from the world of politics, business, films and sport flocking to
his doorstep in Puttaparthi, the small Andhra Pradesh village that
he made internationally famous.
Born on 23 November 1926 in a modest family in Puttaparthi,
Satyanarayana Raju declared himself a reincarnation of Shirdi Sai
Baba at the age of 14. From then on his devotees and admirers only
grew in numbers over the years.
Though a few controversies did cast shadows on Sai Baba's image and
critics have been skeptical about claims that he would produce holy
ash, golden rings and mementoes from thin air, Sathya Sai Baba also
earned respect for setting up world-class educational and health
institutions and also for charitable work like drinking water
projects for four semi-arid districts of Andhra Pradesh and in
Chennai. The institutions and properties that he built are estimated
to be worth over Rs. 27,000 crore.
After a hip fracture in 2006, Sathya Sai Baba was confined to a
wheel chair and gave darshan from his car or a portable chair.

Puttaparthi (Anantapur district): Medical
specialists will be flown in from Bangalore and Hyderabad to treat
Sri Sathya Sai Baba, who is battling for his life at the Sri Sathya
Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences here. As in the past two
days, his condition remains very critical.
The decision to involve more specialists was
taken at a meeting of the coordination committee in view of the
84-year-old Sai Baba's fluctuating healthcondition. It was attended
by members of Sri Sathya Sai Seva Central Trust, medical
specialists, Andhra Pradesh Minister for Major Industries J. Geetha
Reddy and Anantapur Collector B. Janardhan Reddy.
“Sai Baba is in a very critical condition
due to abnormal liver functioning. His respiratory system has been
put on the ventilator while he is undergoing dialysis to help in
functioning of kidneys. All vital organs are not reacting to the
treatment because of infection,” Dr. Janardhan Reddy told The Hindu
after the meeting. The only positive sign was stability in heartbeat
and blood pressure, he said.

A.N. Safaya said Sai Baba continued to be in a very critical
condition and that the episodes of low blood pressure were a cause
of great worry.
Telugu Desam Party MLA from Puttaparthi
Palle Raghunath Reddy appealed to the trustees to clear all
“misgivings” about Sai Baba's health by addressing the media.
Puttaparthi (AP) The condition of Sri Sathya Sai Baba continues to
remain very critical and his vital organs are showing minimal
response to treatment, a senior doctor attending on him said today.
"Sai Baba's condition is very critical. He is in the ICU and
undergoing treatment as he is suffering from multi-organ
dysfunction," Dr Ravi Raj, Director of AP Medical Education, told
"His heart is very weak. Blood pressure is usually low but is
maintained at near normal level through medicines. His liver
function is very poor and kidneys are not functioning. So he has to
undergo dialysis," the doctor said.
He said Sai Baba's intestines are also not functioning properly and
he is being fed through the intravenous route.
"As far as his central nerve system and brain functioning is
concerned, Sai Baba is on continuous sedation, because he is
connected to the ventilator, so it becomes difficult for us to
assess his consciousness level accurately," the doctor said.
A team of doctors at the Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical
Sciences are monitoring his health round the clock, Ravi Raj said.
The 86-year-old Sai Baba was hospitalised on March 28 following
problems related to heart and respiration.
Earlier, State Major Industries Minister J Geetha Reddy told
reporters that the Government held a coordiation meeting with
hospital doctors, Sai Baba Trust members and the local district
administration to make an assessment of Sai Baba's health.
"The government is there to assist in every aspect on whatever
suggestion the doctors give on the health condition of Sai Baba,"
the minister said.
After conclusion of the coordination meeting, authorities said the
trust members are likely to brief the media in the evening to
clarify reports appearing in a section of the press about the
succession to Sai Baba.
