WATER IS THE GIFT OF GOD TO MAN

Embodiments of Love!
As mentioned by the speakers who spoke just now, I provided water to
Chennai both for drinking as well as for cultivation purposes. But the
repair work of the canal was done only up to the border of Andhra Pradesh.
Not only was this work executed without any problem, but it was also done
in such a nice way that not even a drop of water was allowed to be wasted.
Depend only on God
Thus, the water of the river Krishna reached up to the border of Tamil
Nadu very smoothly without any wastage. But there was wastage of water
after it entered Tamil Nadu border as the part of the canal on the Tamil
Nadu side was not repaired. It was envisaged that this work would be done
by the Tamil Nadu Government, but it has not been done so far. Naturally,
the people are worried as the work has not been completed. Therefore, I
have decided to undertake this task (loud applause). The length of the
canal to be repaired towards Chennai is about 25 km. The cost of repairing
it is estimated at 30 to 40 crore rupees. There is no need for you to
depend upon anybody else. It is enough if you pray to God. God can perform
any task. Very soon, I will complete this work so that the water reaches
the people of Chennai in full measure. Shortly, I will send the engineers
there. As there are breaches in the canal on the Tamil Nadu side, a lot of
water is being wasted. After the repair work is done, adequate water will
reach Sathyamurthy Sagar. Thus, Sathyamurthy Sagar will be filled with
Sathya Sai water (loud prolonged applause). I will do this work. This will
ensure permanent supply of water to Chennai.
Everybody has Equal Right on Water
Sai can do any work which nobody else is able to do. The remaining part of
the canal will be nicely repaired with cement lining. You have seen for
yourself how much water is being wasted now. Water is not anybodyís
property; it is Godís property. People are fighting with each other for
water, which, in reality, is the property of God. So, they have no right
to fight. Water is Godís gift to man. Everybody has equal right over it.
The name of this year is Sarvajit. What is the meaning of Sarvajit? It
means victory in all fields, viz., business, agriculture, education, etc.
Hence, we will also be victorious in performing this task. I will complete
this work so that you have no inconvenience henceforth. I am prepared to
spend any amount of money. The five elements are the gift of God; water is
one of them. It is in the hands of God. You need not approach anyone else.
You may inform Karunanidhi that I will surely do this work. Convey this
good news to the people of Chennai also in this auspicious Sarvajit year.
May you all lead a happy life! Constantly contemplate on God. This is your
total protection. How can people have any problem when they have this
sacred protection? Why fear when I am here? (loud applause) In this
Sarvajit year, I will give water for Sathyamurthy Sagar. Therefore, you
should have no worry. Have faith that God will not only provide food and
water to you, but He will look after you in all respects.
Today is the sacred New Year day. It is an important day both for the
people of Kerala and Tamil Nadu. The people of Kerala and Tamil Nadu are
recipients of My grace in full measure (loud prolonged applause).
Hereafter, you will have no problems. Earlier, small children were
suffering from many ailments by drinking polluted water. Now drink this
sweet water, enjoy good health and lead a blissful and happy life without
All of you who have come here should go back happily. You will have no
dearth of anything in life. I have great love for Chennai. Where is
Chennai and where is Puttaparthi? Did anyone come here and pray to Me? No.
Sai Himself has come to you and provided water. My love for Chennai cannot
be described in words. May you all enjoy good health by eating good food
and drinking pure water!
