Many Contradictions In Sathya Sai Baba Official Literature
2010-11-18 23:05:00
In countries right round the world, when people began leaving Sathya Sai Baba, one of the most typical and prompt responses was to get rid of all the paraphenalia that belonged to devotion to this guru. This meant: the books, the official newsletter, Sanathana Sarathi, the photos, rings, pendants and so on, which would otherwise bring back memories that would prove far more painful than joyful. Fortunately, since the books and publications such as Sanathana Sarathi, individuals of scholarly mind, such as Robert Priddy, Brian Steel and Alexandra Nagel, realised the importance of preserving documentation. Robert Priddy was a contributor to Sanathana Sarathi, and much respected by its editor, the reknown (retired) Indian newspaper editor, V.K. Narasimhan. Here are his articles, which state positions very different to what he has thought in the last decade. Priddy was co-founder and longtime head of the Sathya Sai Organization of Norway. For those who like to delve into archives, ...

2009-07-19 11:27:00
Carla Bruni canta per Nelson Mandela Nelson Mandela, il primo presidente nero del Sudafrica, festeggia il suo 91mo compleanno in casa a Johannesburg fra alcune decine di invitati. Ma il mondo lo celebra con un maxi-concerto a New York, dove una parata di star, fra le quali la first lady francese Carla Bruni, salirà questa sera sul palco del Radio City Music Hall per una esibizione di beneficenza alla quale, per motivi di salute, il simbolo della lotta all'apartheid e Premio Nobel per la pace non potrà partecipare. "E' troppo debole per viaggiare e raggiungere New York" per le celebrazioni organizzate in suo onore, spiega Graca Machel, moglie di Mandela, in un'intervista alla Cnn. Anche se sempre impegnato con le sue iniziative caritatevoli "Madiba (così lo chiama la moglie) è stato costretto a rallentare il ritmo e questo per lui è frustrante. E' una persona molto orgogliosa". Nella sua casa nel quartiere di Houghton, ...

Eminem and Nelson Mandela
2008-04-15 21:00:00
Well those are two names that you never thought you’d hear together in the same sentence. But it seems that it’s not at all impossible. Retired rapper Eminem has reportedly been approached to play Nelson Mandela’s upcoming 90th birthday party. I never knew Nelson was a hip hop fan. Reports are also saying that it’s a done deal but the rapper’s camp is saying they haven’t accepted the invite just yet. Let’s hope that there won’t be any talk about street cred. Em’s been arrested. Nelson spent 27 years in jail. Em clearly loses. But then again, he can issue a rap battle challenge and then all hell will break loose!

News: Nelson Mandela (90) is still on US Terrorist List.
2008-04-12 01:27:00
The African National Congress (ANC) was designated as a terrorist organisation by South Africa's old apartheid regime. Since that time, things changed. Apartheid is not legal anymore, Nelson Mandela was released from prison, and the ANC became the government.Other things have not changed: all ANC leaders, including Nelson Mandela, are still tagged as 'terrorists' in US security databases and need to get a special waiver to enter the US.US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has now asked for the "embarrassing" travel restrictions to be lifted. Good. I am happy the US administration is keeping up with the fast moving pace of world politics. The ANC has been South Africa's governing party since 14 years. (Full)Soon, one embarrassment less. Some more challenges still to tackle, though. Like convincing US President Bush statements like "Mandela is dead" is not really OK. Not really.It might have something to do with the fact that Mandela has never been short of criticism on US polit...

Nelson Mandela and District Six
2008-02-21 02:13:00
February 11th marked the 18th anniversary of Nelson Mandela's long walk to freedom from South Africa's Victor Verster Prison. Though I arrived in Cape Town on the 2nd, I missed the opportunity to make a commemorative post on that event. Hopefully that can be made up for by relaying an equally important though less known story of apartheid - that of District Six.Named in 1867 as the Sixth Municipal District of Cape Town, District Six was established adjacent to the downtown core as a mixed community of freed slaves, merchants, artisans, labourers and immigrants. As the next century progressed the area grew into a cosmopolitan melting pot with a rich jazz scene, and as the dark years of apartheid clamped down on the city, it became a haven for musicians, writers and politicians looking for a moment of escape. In the words of legendary South African jazz pianist Abdullah Ibrahim, District Six was a "fantastic city within a city. Where you felt the fist of aparth...
The Spice Girls May Do One Last Gig For Nelson Mandela

Despite the Spice Girls saying they will never tour again after their last date on 26th February, the girls could be wooed by Nelson Mandela to performing one last show for his 90th birthday concert.Organisers of the legendary humanitarian's summer birthday celebration want the girls to headline the event.And Nelson is hoping they'll oblige, especially as they declined his request to play at his 89th birthday last year due to work commitments and because Emma Bunton was heavily pregnant.A source tells us: "Nelson is desperate for them to perform one last time - and he's confident it will happen. He first met the Spices in 1997 and called them his 'heroes', so he has deep admiration for them." A-listers are already queueing to be part of the historic event, which is taking place in London's Hyde Park in June.Queen have already confirmed - with Robbie Williams even rumoured to be planning an appearance alongside the rockers, dressed as Freddie Mercury.Bono has also agreed to tak...

ZIMBABWE - Living in the dark ages; and what do Nelson Mandela, Kofi Annan
2007-11-05 12:32:00
Imagine living in a place where the electricity supply is so erratic that you have to cook your food over a primitive, open wood fire in the back yard.  What little fresh meat and dairy produce there is, goes rotten because (of course) refrigeration won’t work without power, and there’s no hot water.  According to Cathy Buckle, they had just 35 minutes of electricity in a period of 38 hours last week.  Zimbabweans have to rely on candles to see after dark – if they can get them.  Meanwhile, has the Zanu PF politburo forced Mugabe, and his mad ministers of state to drop their plans to “purge” the few remaining white farmers from their land in Zimbabwe? reports that the Marxist State’s “…decision-making body, the politburo, last week rejected a land reform report that proposed a further purging of the few remaining white farmers”.  The report continues, “Politburo members argued that the eviction of more farmers would bring the economy to its k...

Dr. Nelson Mandela, the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, in his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech said ,"I stand here today as nothing more than a representative of the millions of our people who dared to rise up against a social system whose very essence is war, violence, racism, oppression, repression and the impoverishment of an entire people."A three-metre high bronze statue of former South African President Dr. Nelson Mandela was unveiled in London on 29th August 2007, to commemorate his struggle against “APARTHEID”, an ethnic separation based on human- skin colours, towards South Africans and his imprisonment for 27 long years, for the noble cause. The unveiling ceremony was held on the Parliament Square, London, where Dr. Nelson Mandela's statue has joined other statues of notable leaders like Sir.Winston Churchill and Abraham Lincoln, who also resisted oppression.Mr. Nelson Mandela, aged 89 years, made his way to the platform, leaning on the arms of his w...
