BABA means Father. But here at our house we use the name Baba for Grandpa. When I was younger and just starting to talk I couldn’t say Grandpa. … minor speech issues so i worked with the word to finally getting me to say Baba. The “B’ sound is much easier … quot;Gr” sound. However for western people it must be phonetically similar to “BABE” ,they must be confused with that , but it is name for our admiration in a common household in india.
The name Baba has stuck ever since.
Jai bhole baba ki…..
These words are meant for our inner peace and considered as sacred .
But nowadays in this commercialized age of devotion , These are PUNCHLINES.
Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev says, homosexuality is a VIRUS and he can cure it!
Sathya Sai Baba Serial Sexual Abuser of Boys and Young Men.
Kerala’s godmen on the run.
10 Babas including pilot baba and kirit baba exposed taking money in an sting operation.
Asaram Bapu faces arrest in an attempted murder case.
Rape Case Against ‘Godman’ of Bhopal
‘Godman’ nabbed with six women, sex racket busted
Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev announced to field candidates in next general elections –
These are the news we get to read every day….Which have mudsledged the word “BABA” .
I was horrified to see baba involved in sex scandal in delhi ….”The godman supplied high-class escorts. His clients often flew down to Delhi and stayed in five-star hotels,”
Many babas give child to childless couples by abusing the women , and play with the innocence and illetracy of poor people , who term that as “chamatkar”.babas make lot of money in last rituals of a dead body , by saying that u can’t see dead body by naked eyes , so take whisky , and then demand lots of money , while intoxicated.
And thus there are many more stories….
Modern babas carry laptop with expensive mobiles , and have girls all around them , they are more like “GODFATHER” rather than “GODMEN”.They just cash in the deep faith of the emotional simple people…And the people get cheated in the process.
These babas are often invisible to general public , travel in business class , stay in five star hotels which they term as “asharams” .These babas say that they get money from followers outside india , but the reality is harsher. They like (asaram bapu) occupy the property of govt. , and Govt. is too shy to acknowledge this becoz of its vote bank . Many babas travel abroad on tourist visas in countries like germany , poland , US , Japan , where they can fool young people by teaching the art of living or meditation , following the principles of book called “The Secret” by “Rhonda Bryne” , only repeating them in their own way.
They watch Michael Jackson Videos , and listen to “Britney Spears”
Few take “Charas” as “Bhole ka Prashad”…..and thus spoil the name of god.
There would be a time when these babas will have a 24*7 news channel ,would be 24*7 online , and have a job portal like “careerbaba.com” and a political party , and will form a millatry , besides Sanghs , Vhp’s , Bajrang Dal’s , Ram Sene’s and Karsevaks etc.
All these babas have decimated the meaning of “Sants” or “Saints”.
They Don’t Know who the saints or “bairaagi” are.Bairagees left their world for other people , but these babas can’t leave only their mobiles for the sake of humanity …
The so called “Heaven on Earth” , “Kumbh Mela” , which comes once in 14 yrs. is a playground or advertisement ground for many of them.I went to Kumbh Mela 2010 in haridwar and was shoked to see posters of “babas” and thier “chelas” stuffed on the roadside as an election campaign , many of them were extremely provocative and couls cause a mob voilence and , govt didn’t noticed that.
There were slogans like “there is no hindu nation in whole earth” & ” why family planning is for us only not others”.
Thus Kumbh Mela is an occasion of good investment by various babas and thier ” akhadas “ . Even “naga babas” had precious Items , and “Kanwarias” are the another Shiv Sena in the process. “They are so arrogant that they jam the road , and if they see a vehicle coming they throw stones at them.
So Whenever you see a bearded person wearing an orange cloth coming towards you , ” Beware of those DhongiBabas and their Bhavishyavanis ” !
