During my travelling in India i could not help but stop in Puttaparthi for few days to visit the famous/infamous Guru Sathya Sai Baba. I will spare you my opinion for 2 reasons, it may not go down well with some devotees even though i have good friends who spend time there every year and they all know how i feel, also the guy passed away so no point to get into it. Nevertheless i can say that he was an interesting figure to meet, i wish i could have had a chat with the little fellow.
Here an idea of the sound surrounding the place, it is a walk from the main shop street into the ashram follow by a celebration fireworks just outside the ashram. How everyone says over there Sai Ram!!
