Dear Brothers and sisters

Om Sri Sai Ram.

I learnt today that long-time devotee Sri V. Srinivasan has merged with our Lord, Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba on July 25, 2017 in Chennai. On behalf of the Sathya Sai International Organisation, with love and humility, we pay tribute to Sri V. Srinivasan, an exemplary devotee of Sathya Sai Baba who dedicated his life to serving Him and doing His work. Sri Srinivasan was fortunate in playing an important role in the Avatar’s mission as a leader in Sai organisations. Having come to Sathya Sai Baba 47 years ago, he served as the All India President (AIP) of the Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisation (SSSSO), as well a Trustee of the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust, Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher learning and Sri Sathya Sai Medical Trust. Sri. Srinivasan was a well-known industrialist and the Chairman of W.S. Industries.

Even after losing his wife, another exemplary devotee, a few months ago, he continued to serve Sathya Sai Baba and the Sai organisations – both in India and abroad. We gratefully remember his contributions to the World Conferences, SSE Conferences and Youth Conferences of the Sathya Sai International Organisation and I had the good opportunity to work closely with him. His attention to detail was impeccable. Sri V. Srinivasan will also be remembered for sponsoring the Sai Symphony Orchestra performances, both in Prasanthi Nilayam and in Wuppertal, Germany – to spread the universal message of Bhagawan through the medium of music.

On a personal note, my wife and I were fortunate in knowing both Sri V. Srinivasan and his wife, Smt. Vidya Srinivasan well for several decades. I worked with him closely on many aspects of the work of Sathya Sai organisations in India and abroad. Even a few weeks ago, I talked with him about the possibility of taking the Sai Symphony Orchestra to other countries to share their musical tribute to the life of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba.

Sri V. Srinivasan will be missed by many. We pray to Sathya Sai Baba to give his soul permanent peace. Please convey our sincere condolences to his family, friends and the Sai fraternity. May our loving Lord Sathya Sai also give strength to his family and friends to bear this great loss.

Jai Sai Ram.
Lovingly in the Service of Sai,
Narendranath Reddy, M.D.
