|Sri Sathya Sai at Trayee Brindavan|
Swami came at 4.34 pm. Swami turned to a Hospital Boy, working at Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Science, Prasanthigram, and asked him…
Swami : What, today is Monday, didn’t you go to the Hospital?
H. Boy : No operations, Swami.
Swami : No operations?
H. Boy : I am leaving in the early morning tomorrow.
Swami : Are yesterday’s operations over? Have you put the stitches? (Swami then turned to the Anesthetist in the Sri Sathya Sai General Hospital at Whitefield.) How many operations today?
Anesthetist : Only one, Swami.
Swami : Only one? In Super Hospital eight, today nine. Which Hospital do you work in?
Anesthetist : General Hospital Swami.
Swami : General? In General Hospital only one operation? In General Hospital, who is the Suprintendent? Head of the Department? No one? Who is for General Hospital? Yourself?

Swami : (To Sri Raghunath Sarma (Sri R. S.), Faculty Member, Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the Prasanthi Nilayam Campus of Swami’s University) Will you speak something? Are you doing Ph.D.?
Sri R. S. : Teaching, Swami.

Swami : If a person doesn’t have character, it is equal to being dead. (To Brindavan Warden) Who else will speak? I will go.
Swami then got up and Aarti was offered. While Swami was going back, Sai Kanav, a Primary School student got up.
Student : Swami, I want Your robe.
Swami : This robe? (Swami showed the robe He was wearing.)
Swami pinched his cheeks, gave Prasadam trays to the students and went up. From the balcony, Swami called for that student and threw him a robe. Swami then blessed all and retired.
