A brief profile of our esteemed guests is presented below, followed by the programme of events for the EHV workshop they will be conducting.

Bro. C.D. Sainadh has worked as the Regional Spiritual coordinator for Gulf and Middle East under the Convenorship of Shri. G.B. Choithram, Regional Coordinator for the 18 countries in the Middle East and Gulf region.
It was Swami Chinmayananda, who first opened his eyes to the glory of the spiritual world, being instrumental for Sainadh’s transformation and coming into Swami’s fold in the year 1973. Ever since, Bhagawan Baba has been his guiding light. After his move to Muscat as an Airlines professional, Sainadh and his equally devoted spouse, Subhashini, were inspired to convert their entire house into a very active and vibrant hub of the Sai movement in Muscat for many decades.
Being literally guided by Bhagawan in his every move to become HIS instrument, post-retirement Sainadh started on his path as HIS messenger and toured all over the world, conducting various workshops on Swami’s teachings.
Sainadh’s presentations have been instrumental in bringing awareness of Sai’s Mission & Vision, focusing on the Organization and the Tasks of devotees in forwarding the mission, thus strengthening the faith in Devotees towards Bhagawan and having tremendous effect in their participation in the SSSSO activities.
Sainadh’s impressive portfolio of workshops and presentations include those on EHV, Value Parenting, Effective Teaching techniques, Youth Awareness programs, Listening Skills, Leadership Qualities and how to better your Journey of Life.
Sis. Subhashini Sainadh has been an ardent devotee of Bhagawan Baba, as well as a rigid follower of Swami’s teachings, and has been an inspirational instrument in spreading Swami’s teachings in many countries. At the tender age of nine, not only did she inspire her parents to join Swami’s fold, her devotion drew her closer to Baba, spending hours in the nearby Sai Centre. Growing up to complete her MA in Child Psychology, she worked as a Medico Social worker in The Indian Council of Medical Research, to satisfy her yearning to serve humanity.
After her marriage to Bro. C.D. Sainadh, Subhashini till recently, has spent a major part of her life in the Sultanate of Oman, transforming her devotion to Swami into active service in the Sai Organization, being the pioneering Bal Vikas teacher in Muscat in the 80s, imparting Swami’s Education in Human Values. After the formal affiliation of the Oman centres under the umbrella of Sri Sathya Sai World Council, Subhashini as the first Mahila Coordinator conducted programs and workshops that influenced many to take an active part in community development and social service activities in Oman. Today, having travelled worldwide in her mission of spreading Swami’s message of Love and Service, she stands as an evolved and mature devotee, who is an inspiration to one and all.
Bro. Vasanth Rao B K hails from the tiny temple town of Udupi and settled down in Bangalore. Mechanical engineer by profession from Chennai University, he has worked for over 35 years in the Heavy commercial vehicle industry assisting global players such as Mercedes Benz, TATA, MAN, and General Motors in various countries such as India, Zambia, Sri Lanka, Abu Dhabi, Oman, Bahrain and Qatar.
