Sri Sri Fails Sri Lanka
File under: The Siddhi of PR
A few months back, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar boasted to India and the world that he'd bring an end to the ethnic conflict in Sri Lanka by instilling a sense of peace in folks there with his Sudarshan Kriya.
Here is the result:
Around 15,000 refugees displaced due to fighting between the Tamil Tigers and the government troops in Sri Lanka's eastern province were gathered in Kantalai, 218 [kilometers] from here, the government relief officials said Saturday...We guess that's what happens when it's more about obtaining your own name and fame rather than actually attempting to do good for those you are using as a foot-stool to Nobel Peace Prize recognition.
The latest clashes between the two sides are the worst since the Norwegian backed peace process got underway.
