Amma Satire Sets Hindu Bees Buzzing

File under: Amma All-Over-The-Planet and The Siddhi of PR

A comedy send-up of Amma set to air on TV tonight in South India has conservative Hindus buzzing like angry bees:
We take this opportunity to request all Hindu brothers who have legal background to file a case against Kairali for misusing AMMA's bhajan CD without consent as per the copyright act and demand strong punishment against Marxist media thugs for hurting millions of Amma’s followers.
If anyone finds this show on the Youtubes, please pass it along.

I'm sure Amma has already unleashed her monkeys from the castle to take revenge upon them.

again, you miss the context of the multi religious setting in which such offence is taken.

this is just an excuse to be inarticulate, and to not face the fact that freedom of speech and free expression are not alive and well in the second biggest democracy. If american christian fundamentalists went after everyone who ridiculed them they wouldn't have time to go to breathe. why dosen't amma just perform a miracle and turn the offending welps into yogurt? Why do she and /or her minions resort to such silly reactive legalistic behavior? Aren't they above and beyond all that? guess not.

you are just supporting what i said. the same people dare not make fun of any christian saint (dead or alive) or dream of satirizing anything even remotely connected to allah. I just want them all to be equally ridiculed, including amma.

i doubt amma cares, she is too busy... i worry about those devotees though... there is so much religious ego in india, why do you think most avatars are born there? ....

and for yomamma, freedom of speech is pretty relative, india has a lot of freedom, the us, of course, does too, compared to some places, but you can get your ass in a loop everywhere if you are not careful

The fact that the state (Kerala) in which Amma's ashram is located has long been electing Left leaders, makes it not such a big deal that this is happening. She faced, evidently, lots of pressures from the local atheist thugs in her region since the beginning of her work. If you were to travel in Kerala, you will still find city squares, the center of which is paved with a hammer and syckle.

Since her CDs are copyrighted, why couldn't the comedians have used their own versions of popular bhajans (of which Amma's people sing many), instead of pirating her versions for airing? That is, after all, illegal. Of course, CD, DVD piracy is also a huge joke in India, with all culprits going totally unprosecuted.

Folks it still makes old Chuck a little weepy in the eye to see what Ammachi has become! I saw her the first time in Taos in 1987 and there was a small crowd. I didn't know who she was, just went to a tent meetin and there she was huggin people so I went up. A fat man can't be too choosey, he'll hug anything that moves and will hug back! As I got within 15 feet of Ammachi, I saw a Bengal Tiger jump out of Ammachi, run at yours truly and jump inside me! This made me so jumpy my stetson flew into the dust! As already said, I am a "big" man, so when I got dowm on my knees and put my head into Ammachi's lap, my britches was put to a mighty test! It may have been my imagination but I believe that Mother passed a little gas her own self! I just had my head there thinkin this is a nice lady but there is nothin happenin to me...must be cause I'm so damned fat...if I was a more attractive man and maybe not from East Texas, I might be gettin more out ot this here thing...etc. Then all of a sudden I was bawlin my pig eyes out! I was weepin and weepin but why?? I didn't feel any worse than usual? That Big Swami who wasn't near as fat then as he is now (same for Ammachi herself) acted as a human crane and got me back upright. Next day I went to a little adobe house way out in the boonies where Ammachi and her Injuns worshipped a statue of the Virgin Mary. I decided right then I wanted to marry Ammachi but fortunately for her I was already married to Chuck JR's mother! Still, as Ammachi was gettin ready to drive off, she waved me over to her car and I layed flat out in the back seat with my face in her lap. That day I felt that maybe God really could love a man as fat as me! Twenty years have come and gone and now Ammachi's goons are beatin up rich Indians with crowbars! This makes a fella from Dime Box, Texas feel a little low sometimes... At these moments I squint my piggy eyes shut and think to myself, "It's better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all!"

A very touching story, Chuckji...
Your obvious sincerity has brought you finally to the feet, I mean hooves, of a true guru, Da Free Jack, your beloved mule.

Da Free Jack, your beloved mule

I need a picture of that mule, Chuckji.

I'm gonna put him up on the header as our mascot.

Jody, unfortunately the mule sometimes seems to think he is Muhammed and don't want his photo taken. At the last minute the boy swings around, lifts tail and puckers! This is just one of the things that sets Da Free Jack apart from others such as She She and his name sake, Da Free John! He is a simple fellow and prefers to spend his time eatin sorghum balls and tryin to mount anything in his little pasture, be it mulley cow or fence post... The mule is not choosey!

Jody, if all you can get is a photo of the mule's ass, why not use a photo of your own dog's ass for your mascot. No need to make the little fella jealous of Chuck's mule and it seems more appropriate anyway...

Because my dog's ass isn't going to look good in a turban. A mule, on the other hand, will look great in a turban, and since so many folks believe I'm an ass, it will all be perfectly appropriate.

Jody you and Betty have made a more unsavory than usual memory come up in me like a bufflo fish risin up to look at the moon! Durin my year of college I sometimes shared space with two old boys just off a ranch in West Texas. These were guys that liked their George Jones and their Jax long necks and always talked about playin guit-fiddles! What these boys would sometimes do after a few beers was strip down bare and get down on their knees with their butts in the air... The other half of the duo would place a stetson on top of said ass at a cocky angle and take a polaroid! A picture like that would sure top havin Da Free Jack wearin a turban, not that I wouldn't be awful proud to have my mule as the Guruphiliac mascot!
