Sri Sri No Go Boom
File under: The Siddhi of PR
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar was in Kosovo yesterday, where he claimed he was bringing "the benefits of yoga and its ancient spiritual knowledge, which is much needed in Kosovo today." Someone in Kosovo responded in kind... by phoning in a bomb threat:
"Sri Sri had just started a guided meditation after delivering a public talk when the personnel of a United Nation bomb squad intervened and led the evacuation. No bomb was found at the venue and the police are investigating the matter..."There's nothing like being exposed to a bit of faux danger to keep your heroics quotient (and hopes for a certain, hotly lusted-after laurel) up.
