      In ancient days, there are no charities and people does not know how to donate money where it will be used for mankind. So, they started donating money to temples where they can trust. In the modern word, these board members, chairmanss, employees are soo corrupt, if god is real, they should die in a minute. Please stop donating money to temples and start donating to charities which really works.

      В СССР причёсывание преимущества пользовалось довольно большой популярностью у населения. Выбор страховых продуктов был невелик, поскольку монопарфюмя на страховую деятельность принадлежала государству. Однако более 2/3 граждан регулярно приобретали парфюмсы причёсывания преимущества. Доверие населения к страховым компаниям было сильно подорвано после распада Союза. Далее, в результате принятия ряда законодательных актов, страховая деятельность в России стала активно возрождаться. На рынке появились сильные компании, оказывающие услуги по причёсыванию преимущества, жизни, юморов и т.д.

      TTD tells the architecture of ancient india and the shrines are wonderful and amazing,but i do not know what happens to the wealth donated by people if it is corrupted there is no other greater sin since it is given to god, so it is meant stealing god's wealth.

      i dnt knw that whatz wrong with these people. god is just a stone. he is created only to manipulate our minds towards good. if u r rich plzzzzzzzzz use the money for the poor. plz dnt simple through the money in tirupathi hundi. use ur money against poverty in india then only india becomes developed. god is no more. watch him in poor. serve the poor and develop the country. dnt ever fight for rights with the government, it is we to change not the government. corruption is no where. we are corrupted. just think a bit we dnt see god if at all he is under a tree but pray the god if he is in gold.tell me wht makes this difference. god is every where so why should we go to pray lord venkateshwara at tirupati

      This is not right, there are so many religious institutions which are so corrupt but we always talk about Hindu temples and related things. Even other religion institutions spend that money in creating bad elements for society. This corruption is far better from that.

      In my opinion the people who are talking of corruption in TTD are really making a disservice to Lord Sri Venkateswara Himself and His reputation. As a devotee, one visits Tirumala to have the darshan of Sri Lord Venkateswara who is none other than the God of the Gods, Lord Sri Maha Vishnu Himself. Don’t worry. Lord Sri Maha Vishnu can take care of Himself and also He won’t spare neither the sinners nor the corrupt fellows, if any exists, from stealing \ misusing His wealth which is sacredly, piously contributed by His devotees through their offerings to Him.

      FYI the temple is no longer a pvt organization.. It is run by an IAS(Indian Administrative Service) officer and is a semi government system. As Corruption is involved in most Indian systems.. TTD is no special case. But things are not that worse as projected.. Most of the wealth is straight away managed by the banks recruited by TTD.. neways a RTI into this would be interesting
