India Today July 2014 article praises Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust for smooth running of 'Eternal Empire of the Living God'

I was not aware of this July 18th 2014 article in India Today, Eternal Empire of the Living God, http://indiatoday.intoday.in/story/sri-satya-sai-baba-mission-crisis-of-credibility-his-death-three-years-ago/1/372954. It was brought to my notice by a mail I received today. In early August (2014) I had come across an article in the Daily Bhaskar praising the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust about which I put up a post here: https://ravisiyer.blogspot.com/2014/08/media-article-praises-sri-sathya-sai.html.

This India Today article carries the sub-title "Sri Sathya Sai Baba's mission surmounts the crisis of credibility arising from his death over three years ago". The article states (He in the quote that follows refers to Sri Sathya Sai Baba), "He's no longer around but the vast network of institutions he built over five decades continues to flourish, managed and guided by an all-powerful caucus, the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust (SSSCT). It's to SSSCT's credit that it has ensured the empire runs smoothly even without its charismatic leader, from the daily prayer schedule and handling of devotees to the management of assets and institutions."
and
"SSSCT has surmounted the crisis of credibility-of being a headless entity- by focusing on transparency."

The article ends with the sentence, "The miracle man may be no more but his mission carries on."

Ravi: I am overjoyed to note that one of the leading news magazines of India has written such a positive article appreciating the tremendous achievement of the Sathya Sai fraternity in general, and the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust in particular, of ensuring that even if Bhagawan is not present in his physical form now, "his mission carries on".
