>Another God Man has been exposed in India. Seriously I am so sick of these things! India can be considered to be a hub of myriad spirituality and religion. Its terrible when frauds start an industry of this!

One visit at Haridwar is enough to make one see such money grabbing and jerk-type saffron clad people, that made me prefer being an athiest when I was younger. This however is not the point of this blog post.

When Swami Nithyananda sex tapes came out everyone all over has gotten pissed and angry. #nithyananda was trending with some really hilarious tweets that should have shamed this bhondu (fake monk).

What I am wondering is that we as people are quick to anger and to start this sort of thing and get all our anger trending the topic etc.. but how often do we get stuff trending when it inspires us or brings us joy?

Its about time that spirituality or religion trends for the RIGHT reasons and not because there is some anger at a fake sadhu or because there is some fanatacism involved.

When I went to Haridwar its true that the pandals (saffron clad crazies) seriously bugged me, BUT the place was awesome! Sitting on the shores of Ganga seeing it flow by, watching the sunset, breathing the air can be something totally different. Travel further to the Himalayas and it has been the most beautiful place I have ever visited or could even imagine!

When do we ever get a trending topic like #awesomehimalayas or #himalayas with people just sharing how the place truly moved them in a positive way!


Are we as mankind quickly prone to anger and hate but hard-skinned to beauty and inspiration?

 
  • >Have you read thirukkural? There is a quote in it which says, whenever you feel sad about something, laugh out loud… It is just that, there is so much anger and disappointment inside people that comes gushing out in this form, when they say news like this, and thank god, it also provides us an oppurtunity to know that there are so many people in the world with a wonderful sense of humour!!! And yes, I tweeted there too…:)

  • >I dont think anger for a reason is bad.Reasons – breach of trust .".. but how often do we get stuff trending when it inspires us or brings us joy?"humm right now # Adam Lambert# Justin Bieber# Aliceare trending i guess they are fun. inspiring humm maybe to "some" ."(saffron clad crazies) seriously bugged me, BUT the place was awesome! "well i guess here the topic is anger towards a person . also # tags relate usually to some emotion #awesome some place (will the door is open it could happen)Are we as mankind quickly prone to anger and hatemy theory is that generics have a huge role to play.indians are the most prone to heart disease. also comparing the discussion on the BBC and CNNIBN/headlines today's shows a calm debate vs a shouting match.The andamans are awesome too. my final destination if anger at useless issues do not get me first 😉

  • >@Ramki I totally agree about the humor bit.. some of them were funny! @inde an interesting view on east v/s west is Devdutt patnaiks speech in TED India.. dunno if you have seen that. http://www.ted.com/talks/devdutt_pattanaik.html

  • >Thanks for the link.That video was really enlightening.myworld vs your world the clash of civilization.Though not sure if anger and reactions relate completely with the clash of civilizations .But yes part of it does relate to it.
