Madness 2

David Jennings’s description of Kumbha Mela sounds like it’s a hippie gathering.

Over the bridges by the tens of thousands, shouting, chanting, singing, thrusting spears and tridents into the air, some painted orange, some wrapped in pink or saffron robes, some naked, some wearing crowns and capes, some bearded, some with swords, some with long matted hair, some adolescent, some old enough to have seen British rule, barefoot and hobbling forward, possessed by some mysterious mystical glee, down, into the Ganges they come.

Madness 1

Millions of Muslims gather in Bangladesh for biswa ijtema, the world’s second largest Muslim congregation after the hajj. 50 years ago you could hardly get 500 people to attend such a meeting , now faith is reaching dangerous levels, more than 5 million people come to pray the same prayer every year, ‘oh god, the most merciful, don’t throw me into hell’. Bangladesh government is spending millions of dollars to make the place comfortable for the anti-science, anti-women, god-fearing sinners, desperate-to-go-to-heaven folks. [Read more...]

Baba business flourishes in India because a large number of people are ignorant and idiot. Politicians, players, film stars, and many famous people are their disciples. They give babas hundreds of millions of rupees. Some babas or spiritual gurus have followers even in the Western countries. The Beatles once fell for a charlatan. [Read more...]
