Another godman succumbs to the pressures of old age. It’s everywhere in the news even if you don’t want to know about it. Yes, I am talking about the coolest of the lot – Sri Sathya Sai Baba. Don’t get me wrong as I say coolest because he chose to have his signature hairstyle, much like Hitler chose to have his signature toothbrush moustache.
I have nothing against this manimal, neither did I have anything against Nithyananda. I see all this as a source of entertainment. Hoards of people bowing down to these ‘godfellas’ with their hands folded expecting some flower (or shit) to fall on their head given by their baba, chanting their names with closed eyes and refusing to get a life forces me, an atheist, to keep my hands on my forehead and fake a headache only so that I can get myself to think some thing else. But the reason I wrote this piece of article is my obvious discomfort after looking at what the media is forcing me to see. The devotees are behaving as if they have lost their only reason to stay alive. Foolish. Not that I allow myself to get exposed to these things on a normal day but it’s this particular baba‘s death that is being blown out of proportion. People die dude, so did he.
Let’s keep it simple. Can anyone tell me why is it that this holy man could not save his life? He is god, ain’t he?
Another baffling piece of information I read in a newspaper was from this journalist who wrote a one-page article stating as to why Sathya Sai Baba could not live up to his promise of staying alive till the age of 94. I assume this gentleman to whom the mentioned article belongs to is an educated lad (obviously), then what is it that makes him ask such closed questions. Anyways, this journalist is just one of them!
All these weird living gods (I don’t believe in the dead ones either) have at some point or the other been embroiled in at least one sex-related controversy. Sathya himself had sexual allegations against him made by other men who devoted themselves to him for decades (idiots!) but got baba‘s cock in return. Ain’t this wrong? Not one but several men came up with their complaints, with the term ‘pedophile’ also being used for the hairy guru.
These holy men are the most crooked species amongst us humans. What ever it is, I expect all of them to quickly do all of us a favor and start getting old one by one. Because, the way they are treated and looked after I don’t think any of them would even suffer from fever in their youth. So it is only age that would help us get rid of them and Sathya Sai has just started the countdown to extinction for the rest of them.
Let me spell it out – he was a fvcking human just like you and me. So are rest of the babas/gurus out there. Cover your holes lest they attack you, as there are quite a few who are still waiting for their ticket to fame.
