Who the heck is Baba Ramdev? If he is well known how come most people I interact with have no clue who he is? Maybe I interact with the wrong circles. It is annoying to see well educated people conned by such people calling themselves Swamis and Yogis. To the latter its just a time tested way to mint money and travel the world at others' expense. Why is Baba Ramdev in Times Square campaigning to eradicate poverty? Why does he not go to any big city in India and try to do something progressive there? I have no respect for such characters, nor for people that fall at their feet. Here is Atanu Dey's post on the same topic.
