The same thing repeated again, by Yog-Guru Baba Ramdev. Luckily, he had a great fan following with money flowing into his Patanjali Yogpeeth from every nook and corner of the world. The basic cause was still corruption, but he was concentrating more on aftereffects of corruption like money laundering etc.
I am unable to understand one thing that when Lokpal Bill is on the way and that will eventually take care of corruption, then what is the need of an agitation after this short interval. Lokpal Bill would give rights to aam junta that will take care of these issues.
I had seen an interview of Baba Ramdev long time back , where he had talked of floating a party that will contest election in all the constituencies. So the question arises- is this the preperation for that?
Baba Ramdev is a respectable name in the Yogas and he is the person who is solely responsible for making Yoga so popular among the Gen-X generation. Its a basic fact that a person can not perform all the good things. He is already involved in a great thing so he should concentrate more on that- and should take it to a new height.
From the first day, I was not in favor of this agitation. I see Baba Ramdev as yog-guru who is preaching about the different aasans of yogas. Suddenly he is blemishing against the political leaders/parties and he seems like any other political leader. At that moment I was unable to differentiate between him and other political leaders.
What happened last night is really very sad and can't be expected in a democratic country like ours. I am totally against it and cant express it in words.
But I am left qith my query- whether the agitation was reuiqred, and if required, was Baba Ramdev the right person?
