Lies, Damned Lies, and even more Lies
Forget the ethics, principles and values. You are the whole and soul and master of a large business. You made friends in high places that helped you acquire prime government real estate at throw away prices / terms to run your so called educational trusts. In the process many documents and deeds had to be signed. These are hidden and secret at the present time but then nothing can also be undone about some of these. Fortunately or unfortunately, when the government is not very well computerised, the documents are lying all over the place in different places (Village records, sub-urban development offices, Land registrar, lawyer’s office, volunteer’s homes, and so on). There could be clear trails (or lack there of)…both of which are damaging if and when they come out.
Thieves in arms. Is Yeddy is innocent of any corruption…..no one has a doubt on this. Now when Yeddy visits SriSri as below
What do you think issued as a conversation. Were they alone or were all the hang outs also there ? Do you think their discussion was around the following
a. The present moment is inevitable ?
b. Accept situations and people as they are ?
c. Don’t be a football….
d. Forget politics Yeddy, look at me, its enlightenment that is important, remember ?
Now the man takes the movement in his own direction. Another link to substantiate the above book launch bit.
You are not in a position to allow your dear fellow brother in crime to suffer. Because then he may talk. He may be sued in a criminal court. He may then cough up and expose everything that has happened before.
SriSri tactics will follow some basic guidelines. They are
1. Create uncertainty and doubt (this he does with everybody……). The Master is unpredictable.
2. Go where some more publicity can be had (read free advertising)
3. Create masterful diversions so the real issue is lost in a spaghetti island. He is now telling all AOL BW devotees not to support the Anna Hazare movement because too many right wing elements have been let in. Ha Ha….who let them in ?
4. Vindictive, it is my guess that Arvind, Anna and co figured out the devious man. They all used each other at launch time. Over the course of the next 6 months up to the time of the recentDelhievents it became clear who and what SriSri is. Afterall Anna and Co are not wet behind the ears. So they masterfully eased SriSri out. The indication was clear when SriSri was the only one to appear for a team Anna meeting. Arvind and Bhushan abstained from the meeting proclaiming that there was too much media presence. Then later on the same day, on TV SriSri himself proclaimed to the media that team Anna will be represented by Arvind and Co, and that his job as mediator is over and he is heading back. (Read to lick his wounds). Who gave him that job description ?. Who authorized him to represent team Anna. These are all self proclaimed statements of a devious mind. He has access to media and he gets a statement out first. He will even furnishes data that cannot be validated and his BW devotees will get creative about spinning the stories to justify the Master’s statement. You need to exercise your thinking a little….if you can that is. Here are some egs
1. We had 2.5 Million people come for Silver Jubilee (http://srisriravishankar.org/cultural-events). Pl go to google earth. Check out Jakkur airfield’s dimensions. The perimeter at its maximum best will be 2.65 km. The usable area needs to be calculated after minus-ing parking, stalls, toilets, stage, perimeter fencing, any other vacant unused areas. So length available for SJ function would have AT BEST been 650 m x 350 m. Area is 227,500 Sq m. Assuming it was packed FULLY with only people. 1 Sq m per person (thats seriously cramping it) on an average.That’s 2.3 Lakhs people (Max). It was the same set of people that came on all 3 days. So SriSri simply multiplied this by a factor of 10 and claimed 2.5 Million people.
2. May 2010 – The Assassin tried to kill me. I know it was an attempt on my life. Oh!!, it was a farmer who was shooting at dogs. Which version do you believe ?…when there so many interesting ones ? (http://churumuri.wordpress.com/2010/06/05/one-question-im-dying-to-ask-sri-sri-ravishankar/ ). Common Dear Godman since when did Dogmen start hitting on you ?
3. AOL has adopted 25,000 villages (http://www.lifepositive.com/Spirit/Compassion/Havens_of_Engaged_Spirituality102005.asp ). Anybody seen at least 250 fully adopted village or even 25, or even 1 ? Any idea what it would cost to adopt a village. Lets say 1 Rupee per person per day for a 1000 people village (thats the Indian average). Thats 30 million rupees every day now since the year 200x ?.
4. We love the environment. We will plant a billion trees. (http://www.missiongreenearthpune.org/ ). If each tree costs at least Rs 10 (20 US Cents say at that time) that is a cool US$ 200 million and then the costs of planting each tree will be at least another Rs 10 (actually much more since its a very dis-organised distributed volunteer setup and not at all mechanized). Thats 400 MillionUS$. The cost of maintaining these trees over their life time. Each of the Billion trees will need at least US$ 1 worth of water every month ? No ? Thats a recurring US$ 12 Billion every year from the AOL treasury. WOW !!!! Whatever happened to this stuff.
And there are tons of such examples.
The poor average AOL devotee is fed stories after stories after stories and they still do not see it coming ???.
When a man can fib about all this. What else could he be lying about ? Anyone within the AOL camp knows that these numbers originate from him and him alone. When he can lie about trivial things….and furnish such BS numbers……what else is he BS-ing about.
There is only one clear conclusion that one can arrive after all this….in he AOL parlance, becoming a good zombie is an important step towards becoming enlightened.
Hmmmm…..When-lightened of your wealth, your family and friends, your self esteem, and your brains……. there would be just one thing left…you become an honorary member of the un-enlightenned club. But you will need to reserve your seats in advance…..we already have a waiting list of a 30,000 villages (About 30 million people), 2.5 million people from 2006. So even if we take a 1000 members every working day that is going to take us the NEXT 100 years to do. We hope you got the cue….otherwise its going to be a one long queue…..
