Indiayet another godmanSant Asaram Bapu was accused of rape One would imagine an accusation like this would drive Bapus millions of followers awayinstead his devotees tried to beat up TV journalists who wanted Bapus sound bytes before he went incognito Since public memory is shortthis is the same guru who wondered why the young girl who was gangraped on a bus in Delhi didnt refer to the rapists as bhaiya to make them stop Clearlynuanced opinions are not a requirement to amass a following in India What you say is of no consequence As long as you have a flowing white beardsaffron or white garments and a commanding voice that can hold sway over a desperately vulnerable audiencewho needs someone to worship Asaram Bapu is hardly the first spiritual guru to be accused of sexual misconduct Almost every wildly successful sage in India right from Chandraswami to Sathya Sai BabaSwami Sadachari and Maharishi Mahesh Yogi have faced similar allegations Till recentlymost escaped unscathedtheir popularity undiminishedtheir charismathe hallmark of every spiritual leadermaking people blind to reason Self styled gurus and godmen are as much a tradition of India as the Taj Mahal and Red Fort As a nationwere resistant to rationalism Some of the smartestmost successful people in this country continue to be immersed in astrologyancient rituals and wear shimmering stones in the hope theyll be immune from disaster Were all responsible for propping up these self professed saints A consultant I know happened to be seated beside the head of a prominent ashram in a first class cabin on a flight to Singapore A religious man himselfhe was appropriately deferential They got chatting and the guru talked about the logistics of their biannual satsangs in Delhiwhich over nine lakh people attend over a weekend He mentioned their other investments in healthcare and education before discombobulating the consultant with a question on his firms EBITDA (earnings before interesttaxesdepreciation and amortisation) Spirituality is big business and before the flight endedmy friend knew he had met a potential client in this mystical entrepreneur I guess theres nothing wrong with a cult making money while providing spiritual salvation as long as the promoters aren’t molesting the devotees The commodification of the Eastern spirit world began when the Beatles discovered Mahesh Yogi Since thenthe ashram experience in India has been a must-do on the list of every Westerner seeking an alternate route to peace and fulfillment As Indians living here we should be wiserconsidering weve grown up seeing many a stoned sadhu or guru make a quick buck off us Dodgy stories of unscrupulous saints from remote corners of India make headlines But the allure ofmaybestumbling on something magical thats going to happen in our lives is too strong and takes many of us back to the crystal ball A random check with five people around me revealedthey have all been to a soothsayer or faith healer at some point I am loath to admitthat I have been to a tarot card reader and two astrologers over the yearsnot one of whom got a single detail right about my future Its been a while since Ive given up on divine intervention or comforting prophecies to sort out my issues but just yesterdaya friend convinced me to sign up for an Inner Engineering meditation course that he insists will change my life (for the better) So farreformists like Dabholkar may be outnumbered by traditionalists but one can sense the power of these self-proclaimed god men is also not what it used to be The recent number of horrific crimes against women question the Enlightened India tag weve been burdened with We may have a million great ways to chantmeditate and praybut very few to weed out opportunistic gurus For all

January 31 2017 3:48 am Top News THE Bombay High Court recently refused bail to a man accused of raping a mentally challenged woman stating that in tradition-bound Indian society it was unlikely that a complainant would put the honour of her family at stake in order to make a false allegation of rape against a resident of her village Stating that at this stage it could not be said that there was no prima facie material against the accused the high court added that “what is relevant is quality of evidence and not quantity” It further held that the evidence of the prosecution in matters of sexual offences needed to be considered keeping in mind broader possibilities of a case The accused had claimed that it had not been established that the victim was mentally challenged and that the examination of a medical officer and the police to prove he had committed an offence falling under the definition of the term rape was absent The victim a 25-year-old woman was unable to move due to her condition Watch what else is making news “Examination of the accused shows that he accepted the fact that THE victim is a mentally challenged woman In this background it does not lie with the accused whether the fact has been proved or not” said Justice A M Badar The evidence of the grandmother of the woman who was working in a field on the date of the incident along with her daughter stated that she saw the accused committing the offence Stating there was no probable reason with the mother and the grandmother to falsely implicate the accused the court refused to grant him any
