Asaram Bapu

Asaram Bapu


Asaram Bapu is a spiritual leader lives in Ahmedabad of Gujrat State in India. He has many followers,his teachings are valuable to them,they believe in him to the extent that they consider him as equivalent to God. He has lavish ashram's in all over the country for his spiritual teachings and where he give shelter to many homeless and needy people. There are around 350 ashrams where everybody is welcome without any discrimination of race,religion and financial status according to his website. These things really present him in heavenly lights.

But there is another side of him which I would like to mention. He had to him attached so many controversies like land encroachments in Navsari district,in Madhya Pradesh,charges of attempted murder,deaths of children in his ashram,etc. These charges often termed as allegations put on him by his enemies,what is truth behind them is still under probe and it will be unfair to judge him with these charges. But what he said about Delhi Gang rape victim and then what happened during his holi celebrations recently are enough to understand his spirituality. He wasted thousands of litres of water in states where people are facing droughts,he spoke indecently about Delhi Gang rape victim and he never apologized for his actions.

A spiritual leader should think twice before speaking as his teachings influences others, one who believes that a rape victim is equally responsible for what happened to her will only teach disrespect to women among his followers. I don't know why people are so crazy about spiritual gurus,babas and other such godly people in our country, it has become a big business, babas are used politically to influence voters,they are a way to turn black money into white. Every second day there is a news about a fraud baba but still we are crazy about them. Next time if you wants a way to God search inside yourself before going to any guru or baba and the money you wants to give to them use to feed someone hungry.

  1. My dear, it will be better that leave religion aside. He is no God. But so many believe in him, and it has gone to his head. At his age senile changes creep in slowly.
    These babas and maulvies, other miracle boasters do make money, not by their doings but because we are still living in past to some extent.
    Come and meet real helpers who do not take any money as they say, " money makes power to take back seat.
    Lord Krishna has made it very clear that God resides in each grain & each drop. We have to enter in wards for realisation. How many read scriptures now a days?
    To me they are good story tellers, spell binders, not guru in the sense they teach nothing that has not been taught before.

  2. My dear blogger,
    will u care to investigate your statements , plz check actual unedited video of his statement nt just one line which is being shown repeatedly. It was a live satsang n there cud be context behind what he says. Also if u'll care to know around 10000 people attended holi celebrations over 2 days.divide litres of water with number of people n u'll know that we saved water by playing collective holi.

    On a side note jus coz we don't speak anything doesn't implies u blame us blindly. Go search for water wastage in beer and butcher centre. Got it.

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

The Masked Life


I met with an accident few years back (precisely 10 years ago). It was dangerous and I came out of hospital in about ten days. Except a foot injury which needed dressing every week for around a year I was alright. But that what I and my family thought but as I few days past I realized problems of sore throat, running nose, itching eyes which were watering and initially it was difficult to even face a bright light. I was diagnosed with allergy from almost anything cold water, wind, dust, etc which increases in changing season. Doctor advised me to spend most time in homes and medicines were provided to control the allergy. It cured with time and now I only take single tablet daily to control my allergy. The doctor said to take it only when allergy symptoms appear but they comes out when I stop taking medicine. Now while researching about indoor air pollution I found what force me to take that tablet continuously even when I am mostly home-bound. 
We can avoid Indoor ai…

I am sure those who grew up in nineties are not unfamiliar with his name. Like many I also has his first image in my mind is of 'British Raj Ka Writer' in Doordarshan serial 'Zabaan Sambhaal Ke' where he played an Englishman writer who is learning Hindi. He was impressive in that role along with the other's worked in it. I later saw him in films like Charas, Karma, Kranti and films like that where he has played bad characters of Firangi (foreign) officer. He played these negative characters impressively and when you compare them with his comic role in Zabaan Sambhalke you will know his acting proves. 
I also remembered him as Mahaguru in popular superhero serial Shaktimaan but what inspired me about him later on in my life was his command on Hindi and Urdu. He recite shayaris and ghazals beautifully. I have seen performing him many time on television. I also knew he was a great theater actor but never got any chance to see him live on stage. His ghaz…
