Ailing Sai Baba, 84, shows signs of improvement, according to doctors
Thousands of people, including Christians, are happy over the improvement in the health of world renowned Hindu spiritual figure and philanthropist Satya Sai Baba. “I am very happy to hear the news of his recovery. It will bring relief to the people,” said Father Swarna Bernard, administrator of Hyderabad archdiocese. Sai Baba, 84, showed signs of improvement and his other clinical parameters continued to be nearly normal and satisfactory, according to the doctors attending him. He was admitted to his own hospital, the Institute of Higher Medical Sciences in Puttaparthi in southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, on March 28 after he fell ill with pneumonia. Jesuit Father Pudota John, who heads a retreat house in Secunderabad, said the spiritual leader had given a new dimension of love - love all and serve all. Father John said that more than Christianity, Sai’s teachings have inspired people to come forward to help the poor. Social and dalit activist Jesuit Father A.X.J. Bosco said the teachings and life of the spiritual leader appealed to the rich both in India and the west. Ganga Devi, a follower of Sai Baba, said she is relieved after hearing about his recovery. Devi hoped that the spiritual leader would soon recover fully to provide succor to millions of devotees like her. IB13909.1648
