Some time back today, I saw a recent so called darshan video of so called chosen communicator Madhusudan Rao Naidu, https://www.facebook.com/srisathyasaivrinda/videos/734574910071374/. The guy has become so confident now in this role! Narasimhamurthy (once we used to refer to him respectfully as Narasimhamurthy sir) now comes across as the dutiful elderly assistant of Madhu Baba during Madhu Baba's darshan round! One of the Parthi school teachers who has joined Muddenahalli group is seen reverentially speaking to Madhu Baba like he would have spoken to real physical form Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba!
My God! The craving that some people have for physical form interaction with Swami is to such an extent that for them now Madhu Baba is Swami!
Prior to Madhu Baba public drama debut in May 2014, even in my wildest dreams I would not have thought that people like Narasimhamurthy - long time warden of Sai university Brindavan campus - and one senior teacher of Parthi school and one Sai university Brindavan campus senior sports teacher (not seen in this video but seen in another recent video with reverential folded hands in front of Madhu Baba) would be behaving in public in this reverential manner to one of the students of the Sai university! Madhu Baba was a student at Brindavan campus and so at that time, would have had folded hands in front of his then warden, Narasimhamurthy, and his senior sports teacher. Now the roles have reversed! No wonder, the world is called MahaMaya (the great illusion)!
I mean, if they had done to this to some great form boy with physical form Bhagavan e.g. Satyajit Salian, I could have had some understanding of it, as Bhagavan favoured and trusted Satyajit in a very big way that was well known and even visible to anybody who was a regular in Parthi system. But Madhusudan Rao Naidu was a nobody in Prasanthi Nilayam/Parthi system, as far as I know. Who would have thought that he would now be worshipped as Swami by his own teachers of the Sai university!!!
Here I must express my appreciation for Shri Satyajit Salian that he did not fall into this impersonator trap that Madhu Baba has got into, and where Madhu Baba is misguiding thousands of Sathya Sai devotees across the world, including many children of Muddenahalli group associated educational institutions, using the holy name of Shiva-Shakti Swarupa, Kali Yuga Avatar, Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. I must also say here that I am sure that if Satyajit had got into such a drama act like Madhu Baba, he would have been a much bigger hit than Madhu Baba!
I hope Satyajit continues to sincerely follow Bhagavan's teachings related to mediums and communicators by not getting into any Madhu Baba drama type of stuff, even if he has had to face a lot of turbulence in the recent past in Prasanthi Nilayam. Eventually the respect and affection that Satyajit will have in the Sathya Sai fraternity at large will be based on how well he adheres to Bhagavan's teachings.
I have to say here: Thank God Satyajit did not do any Madhu Baba type drama! If that had happened, those of us who have been loyal to Bhagavan's teachings about not believing mediums and communicators (wrt Bhagavan), and who now are into publicly warning Sathya Sai fraternity about such false claims, would have been at our wit's end. And so I think it is appropriate for us (including me) to thank Shri Satyajit Salian for not having got into any Madhu Baba type impersonator deception.
Given below is one of my comments from my Facebook post, https://www.facebook.com/ravi.s.iyer.7/posts/2032164650333435, associated with this post:
About Madhu Baba speech excerpts shared by --name-snipped-- above: I think Madhu Baba is either deluded or is deliberately faking it. Let me give him the benefit of the doubt and call it delusion. That his delusion was endorsed and promoted by Narasimhamurthy, former vice-chancellor Sai university, Prof. Sashidhara Prasad, C. Srinivas, etc. was what made him a credible figure to many Sathya Sai devotees. Without the support of these persons, Madhu Baba would not have come anywhere close to the big show that he has now.
If he had followed the examples of Bala Sai Baba of Kurnool and Sanjay Sai Baba of Nepal by proclaiming himself as, say Madhu Sai Baba and given darshan, interviews and discourses in Madhu Sai Baba name (and not Sathya Sai Baba name), I would not have had these strong objections to him that I now have. Bala Sai Baba and Sanjay Sai Baba too seem to have philanthropic work. Madhu Sai Baba too could have had philanthropic work like them IN HIS OWN NAME.
And I think Madhu Baba has got car promotion to Bentley, a helicopter to fly around and private charter flights. His Mercedez Benz colleagues and villa colleagues referred to by him in his speech extract above, would probably be green with envy at the material comforts that Madhu Baba enjoys when travelling! I mean, his Merc friends may not be flying around in helicopters in India (unless they have become industry titans or political leaders).
