The Hindu article on planned Sai hospital in Kasaragod, Kerala, India

A short extract from the short article in The Hindu today (Feb. 1st 2016), http://www.thehindu.com/news/national/kerala/sai-hospital-project-in-kasaragod-soon/article8177634.ece:

After Puttaparthi and Bengaluru, it is the turn of Kasaragod as Sri Satya Sai Orphanage Trust Kerala, in association with the State and Central governments, is all set to come up with a multi-specialty hospital complex, a project that envisages to provide state-of-the-art medical facility free-of-cost in the relatively backward region.

Said to be the third ‘cash-counter-less’ hospital in the world, the Rs.100-crore project works will formally begin in 10 acres of land, proposed to be gifted by the State, at the well connected Periya panchayat. Chief Minister Oommen Chandy will lay the foundation stone for the hospital complex on February 29.

Ravi: I put up the following comment on the above Hindu article link (under moderation as of now; slightly edited):

Wonderful! I pray to Almighty God to shower His Grace on all the persons & orgns including govt. departments, involved in this effort. This plan is a great effort at implementing Sri Sathya Sai Baba's teaching, "Manava Seva is Madhava Seva" [Service to Man(kind) is Service to God].

Ravi: This is wonderful news. Is this hospital associated in any way with so called communicator Madhusudhan Rao Naidu and Muddenahalli group? I presume it is not so as otherwise one would have read about that connection in prior info. on this put up on Facebook in the past few days.

I see this as an excellent development, especially if it is an enterprise that is free from any so called communicator or any so called medium of Swami. After the Gujarat proposed hospital which was reported in Facebook a few months ago and which has been done without any so called communicator or medium involvement (and for whose Bhoomi Puja or similar function, Shri K. Chakravarthi, trustee, SSSCT, was an important figure, thereby signalling the blessings of SSSCT for the project), this seems to me to be the second such planned hospital project after Mahasamadhi WITHOUT any so called communicator or medium.

Hopefully, Sai devotees the world over will take such developments as a clear sign that relying on the DIRECT inner connect between devotees and Swami is ENOUGH in this post-Mahasamadhi phase of Bhagavan's mission, to build Sai hospitals, and that one does not need any so called communicator or medium, to continue Bhagavan's mission. Note that Bhagavan has repeatedly and in public, condemned in pretty strong words, such so called communicators or mediums claiming to be his spokespersons.

Just see what Mother Teresa's mission accomplished in India (and some other countries) in the past sixty five years or so! From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missionaries_of_Charity:

Missionaries of Charity is a Roman Catholic Latin Rite religious congregation established in 1950 by Mother Teresa. It consists of over 4,501 religious sisters. Members of the order designate their affiliation using the order's initials, "M.C." A member of the Congregation must adhere to the vows of chastity, poverty, obedience, and the fourth vow, to give "wholehearted free service to the poorest of the poor."
...
Missionaries care for those who include refugees, ex-prostitutes, the mentally ill, sick children, abandoned children, lepers, people with AIDS, the aged, and convalescent. They have schools run by volunteers to educate street children, they run soup kitchens, as (Ravi: and) many other services as per the communities' needs. They have 19 homes in Kolkata (Calcutta) alone which include homes for women, for orphaned children, and for the dying; an AIDS hospice, a school for street children, and a leper colony. These services are provided, without charge, to people regardless of their religion or social caste.
