Sai Baba's Incestuous Sister
"Venkamma was the closest to Sathya. Having married early (to Meesaraganda Subba Raju, Easwaramma's brother) she was like a second mother to Sathya." - Love Is My Form, p. 88
So, in short, Sai Baba's sister married her muvver's bruvver. What can we say? The whole family appears as one seriously twisted entity. Just think what the family tree would look like if you tried to trace it out.
Clever readers might note the similar name; 'Meesaraganda Subba Raju' was the name of Easwaramma's father too. It should be noted that Love Is My Form explains that it was a common affair for the Puttaparthi villagers to have the same names. The two sons of Kondama Raju, Sai Baba's grandfather, were both named 'Venkama Raju' with only the 'Pedda' (elder) and 'Chinna' (younger) epithets to distinguish between the two.
I (reasonably) propose that 'Meesaraganda' was the name of the clan on Easwaramma's side of the family. As Sai Baba himself is formally known as 'Ratnakaram' Sathyanarayana Raju ('Ratnakaram' being the name of the paternal clan), so it is with the Meesaragandas. In any case, marrying your own uncle? Jeez!
