Godmen and the Gravely Injured Men

2 09 2013

Major battles have broken out in the history for two things – women and religion. We give importance to both, neatly and deftly yet press the former under stubby thumbs. The pleasure some barbed wire bearers derive from associating a victim to a deficiency of the mind need to understand that women are not objects at an auction sale. The recent case of Asaram Bapu, title of godman snatched henceforth, brings us to the immediate case of assault but the case goes further, the relation between human being and the supreme being.


Godmen who have been accused of rape too are somewhere deep down men. The difference is their power to ‘heal’ unbalanced psyches. Galileo’s case is not new, published in text books and referred to as an icon for believing in self, was jailed for his support of the Copernican theory that the Earth revolved around the Sun and not the other way around. Our beliefs still echo the same sentiment. We support old beliefs, whether true or made-to-be, we gather our senses at the end of the day just before the climax.



Yoga can treat cancer / AIDS! Rape a 16 year old and call her daughter / granddaughter. Then land grabbing cases are pretty common.  We really do not deserve to be treated like cutting boards by these nonsensical lowlifes. The option of changing the television channel lies with us, here we can exercise the right to not fall into such traps. Of course, a vehicle is required to transport a troubled man to a relaxed destination but what purpose will it serve when the vehicle enjoys maximum attention, money and borrowed perversion.



No medicine can heal the wound of the soul, only his faith in himself can.

‘Godmen’ is a word that has both ‘God’ and ‘men’ but is actually neither a God nor are Godmen able to see themselves as ordinary folk. The truth is that they aren’t extra-ordinary in any way.
