Sri Sri's Good Deeds To Help You Forget Modi
File under: Gurubusting and The Siddhi of PR
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar blew his own horn hard with the publication of this Art of Living press release:
The farmers, who have successfully come out of depression and suicidal tendencies they thanks to the comprehensive programme launched by the Art of Living, interacted with Sri Sri and expressed their gratitude for giving them a new leash of life. Sri Sri also offered solace to several widows whose husbands have committed suicides.It's a miracle Sri Sri's brains didn't end up on the wall with that thing.
We can see why he took the risk, for it serves to distract from that ugly Gujurat "thing" and Sri Sri's show of support for those who fomented mass religious violence. Sri Sri has got to put down some "do-gooding" miles to get past that painfully-mistaken endorsement, something that was probably nothing more than the multi-faced glad-hander covering all his bases.
He may not have done the right thing, but he did the smart thing... for Sri Sri, as always.
