Ramdev Not Rancorous In The U.K.

File under: Gurus Clockin' Dollars and The Siddhi of PR

While Sri Sri sulks around getting pervy for media support to assuage his Nobel Peace Prize lust, Swami Ramdev is wowing them in London, England:
He is an international star with a series of sellout dates across Britain. He has millions of fans worldwide, many willing to pay more than £250 for the privilege of seeing him perform.

Rock'n'roll star? Platinum-selling rap artist? No, he is a yoga teacher - and he is about to host what is said to be the biggest yoga camp ever held in Britain.
Of course, his own people extend the fantasy for the Brits in the pursuit of pounds sterling:
A spokesman said: "Swami Ramdev is probably the most well known person in India, admired and followed by people from all walks of life, from politicians and Bollywood celebrities to housewives and rickshaw drivers."
Uh oh... we predict a huge eyeball lightning fight over those assertions. It's gonna be Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Swami Ramdev, Sai Baba, Kalki Bhagavan, Ammachi and Kripalu Maharaj on the field to duke it out for the title: Most Well-Known Person in India. The last one not burned to a crisp wins.

Honestly, if that actually happened, we'd all win, because there'd only be one insufferably self-aggrandizing occlusion pollution factory left.
