Sathya Sai baba: Faith/ Blind Faith/ Superstition?

There is a thin line which separates faith from faith. Why do people have blind faith?

Superstitions and blind faith are two of the most weakest mental quality of any human being on earth- not only with Indian Society.

Why do people believe in superstitions. ? Why do they blindly follow godmen? Why is there is huge majority of people, not only Indian, but followers of Sathya Sai Baba in 135 countries across the globe, who believe firmly that He was an incarnation of Sai Baba & will be born again as a reincarnation in the name of Premasai?

The recent demise of Sathya Sai Baba has brought all these questions again to limelight. Is it the mental mnecessity of people to have a God figure whom they will follow blindly, so that they will forget their daily problems or is it the Godmen themselves who brainwash them to forget their problems & increse their following. this ia a topic of debate.

Readers are requested to come forward with their ides & help shed light on these issues in the society.

Sachin, As far as I have read about Satya Sai Baba. He did all the magic tricks to get the fan following and for the inflow of money.
But, the good part is he utilized most of the money on treating poor patients in world class hospitals with world class service.
Providing water to barren land of Ananthpura. Solving drinking water problem. Such problems cannot be solved just with the "will"
It needs money. I feel he did all those tricks to get money
