Recounting the blessing of being His contemporary and playing a small role in His mission by three graduates of Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning who narrated the story of Baba’s advent and His matchless splendour.The presentation was extremely beautiful gently taking the audience through history - His Story - with well-timed comic interludes, astute interpretations and melodious songs.

The Burrakatha focuses on presenting serious matters in an easily understandable manner with a touch of humour. It consists of three artistes, one the Kathakudu (Story Teller), the Rajakiya (Political Analyst) and the Hasyaka (Humourist).The trio, students from Sri Sathya Sai University, Sai Prabhakar, Aravind Sai and Sai Raghuram, blessed to be the ‘originators’ by being the first batch of Burrakatha students, have been displaying their skills in the distinctive art with constant blessings, guidance and encouragements from Bhagawan. The trio has been trained by Mr. Krishna Bhaskar from BHEL who had the rare blessing of conducting burrakatha sessions for Bhagawan during the early years.
