Sai Baba Drives 300 Miles In Wrong Direction

Puttaparthi, South India

Sathya Sai Baba drove 300 miles in the wrong direction after using his Jaguar to visit his cows in the local goshalla, which was just down the road from his Puttaparthi ashram.

Late last evening, the Baba suddenly became possessed with the desire to visit and pet his cows, despite it being way past their bedtime as well as his. Foregoing the usual driver, he stole the keys and promptly drove off at a top speed of 120kph.

He was stopped by police hundreds of miles away.

A police spokesman said: "The officers didn't seem to know who he was, and since he looked like one of those crazy hippies, they asked him if he spoke German. He was really lost."

Police alerted the ashram, who promptly sent another car to meet Baba and escort him back home.

Responding to claims that the Baba has been suffering chronic disorientation since his underground burial several days ago, an ashram official said: "This is just a leela, you silly. Just like yesterday's leela with the iPod. You should know better."
