By now all of you must have heard about the incident that took place in the ashram on Sunday night. That same night everything in the ashram was perfectly normal. As of now I had heard quite a few stories about the extent of the madness that the Indian media channels have subjected themselves to, just for the sake of creating news and edging out each other for the No 1 spot. But for the first time I was a witness to a stray incident and could see the way media and some of the so called responsible Govt leaders reacted to it.

Truth and objectivity does not really matter. What sells is spice. Media will do what sells.

One of the channels reported," There is high level of security around Guruji's Kutir" when there was nobody other than may be a few stray dogs around. " Mr Vinay (the guy who was hit by the bullet) is unconscious in the hospital." this was the time when he was roaming around freely in the ashram! " It is suspected that Mallikarjun could have been the person who shot" its surprising that the channel did not know that Vinay's full name is Vinay Mallikarjun!!

"The bullet was fired after Guruji left" God knows how they reached this conclusion completely disregarding what the people who were inside the car including Guruji had to say.

Mr P chidambaram says," It may be a conflict between disciples" that is the Art of irresponsibility! No proof, no evidence but guys you know what, I have to say something and pass the buck right back. The media catches on to it like a bone thrown to a hungry dog to chew on for the next few hours.

India tv , India news and Aaj tak are the most hilarious, dramatazing every bit of it and inspite of all the chaos created by media it was great to see the calmness and composure shown not only by Guruji but also by all the devotees present in the ashram.

More than who shot the bullet the real mystery is why is Mr Chidambaram and the police under playing this event by repeatedly saying Guruji was not the target. What are they scared of?

One of the amazing phenomena to experience is that all this chaos has not in the least affected the celebrative atmosphere in the ashram in the midst of Guruji's beautiful talks every evening on the Ashtavakra Gita!

Aho Niranjana!!

    Yes Bhaiya, this is such irresponsibility by minister and media. If this is the way our ministers are, no wonder our country is being targeted many many times by Maoists and terrorists. Guruji's image is so clean and it's just that they wanted something to show. What a pity media affairs! May be all these drama is just orchestrated by them only including the shooting..who knows
    Anyway our Gurudev is soooo cool, another instance of absolute awesomeness!Jgd:-D

    Heh Heh! Mallikarjun?? Thats sucha common name in K'taka that any Tom, Dic or Harry could have it. :-) Seems like the media has not even spent any effort to get the suspicion right. Or probably this channel wanted to be the first to atleast guess the suspects name right. :-)
