"Miracles" of Satya Saibaba

This clipping is from Satya Saibaba's birthday celebrations at Hyderabad. Originally a Door Darsan clipping, this was suppressed by authorities and was reproduced in "Guru Busters" a Channel 4 documentary on Indian Rationalists and was shown all around the world in hundreds of TV channels.

Dear Mr. Sanal Edamaruku,
I am an admirer of you and your late father. And I feel i am sufficiently rationalist/scientific in my approach. As such, I would request you to have some rethinking on Baba Ramdev and his claims. Having watched him over TV umpteen number of times, it is my humble opinion that he is also a rationalist and thinks scientifically. He does not advocate numbo jumbo and claims that cure through Yoga, nay Pranayam, has been revealed to him through accident. And look at that man's energy and will to bring succor to the suffering! The rest you may please investigate with an open mind . Thank you. Sasi Kumaran

My question is how come the same people who goes to watch a magician performs the same magic that sai baba etc do, but don't call the magician a godman/holyman? Oh! I get it because the magician tells the truth, in contrast the godmen relies on gullibility of common people and takes advantage of them to amass money. How come, if sai baba is able to bring gold balls from his mouth (I couldn't stop laughing while thinking of the words balls and mouth...), while giving away stuff to his devotees, he can only manage to generate ashes, not gold dust? Let him give his devotees gold balls, instead of ash. In that case, I, as a rationalist, will have no problem with him doing his tricks or whatever.
