India is a land of millions of gods and goddesses and thousands of God men. Who ever said India is a developing country? With so many Gods and Goddesses present (No spiritual offence) and self-claimed spiritually enlightened God men can never let India happen anything!
What does it require to be a God men or Godwomen?
Some Sanskrit, Hypocrite nature and some really good convincing power topped with some mythological context!
Hence, you’re a Bakra!
It’s a very skilled art to make a billion people believe that they are the avatars of God!
Let’s get to know a few of them!
An A class rapist, with such huge following. He can put Bollywood Villains to fail!
Had the devotees not been blinded by faith then there wouldn’t be Asaram Bapu, concealing his rapist identity in the garb of religion. Sure, he is convicted but the voices in his support haven’t yet drowned down. Women Wine and Money are his weapons to utmost holiness!
His pee is the purest thing on this planet. He proved that on National television and got kicked out for doing so!
Whatte Shame Baba
This Superhero emerged after he got famous in some infamous news channel for slapping a journalist and that too a women journalist!
(Devi ka sammaan)
Right now he’s busy getting whacked by his followers for his holiness!
The Third eye of Nirmal Baba had been a little more relatable if it was called “The Sixth Sense of Nirmal Baba”. He suggests literally ‘out-of-the-box’ ideas like a hari chutney on samosa can make you ace an interview or a ball pen can make you pass an exam.
Sant Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insan
Such a long secular name! Nobody in this country can be as secular and patriotic as this man is. He takes his personal publicity a step ahead and stars himself in a movie produced, directed and written by him. His first movie is called “Messenger of God” and what exactly is the message, nobody knows! The latest movie by him Hind ka Napak ko Jawab, shows him fighting against terrorism and that definitely makes him call himself ‘Lion
It is sheer hypocrisy to see that these Godmen sit in their air conditioned and gold studded mansions and lecture people about “How to get rid of worldly pleasures”
They talk about religious texts and God’s ideals but do not practice it in their own life.
And this is what Panchatantra tales talk about- A donkey in lion’s skin doesn’t become the king of the jungle!
