  • People who have been his devotees tell that in fact, he started exploiting girls from this girl’s school
  • Every year on his birthday he used to do with his sages and students in his school

New Delhi, August 27, 2017: India is a land of diversity, however not only is the diversity seen in race or religion but also the difference in faith and belief system has taken a unique form now. Such is the fib of the self-styled godman, Ram Rahim Singh. The Dera chief started exploiting girls at a young age, for which he was thrown out of the school.

The credibility of Sirsa’s Dera Sacha Sauda has taken its toll. But at some point in time, this Dera used to be a center of reverence and devotion in most of the surrounding states, including Haryana, Punjab, Rajasthan, and UP. The foundation of this ashram was laid on March 29, 1948, 69 years ago, by the Balochistan saint Mastana Ji Maharaj. People say that he was an ardent saint, and also undertook many social services.

Due to tampering with girls, Ram Rahim was also removed from the school in the Ninth class.

According to Aaj Tak report, Gurdas Singh used to be a special servant of Baba Ram Rahim. He used to worship him. But, as he got closer to Baba, he got himself away from his devotion. He saw Baba’s cave with his eyes, besieged with helpless Sadhvis and Baba playing rasalila.

Every morning, Ram Rahim’s song used to play in the background while he stood on the fountain and placed his legs in the water. The women followers then used to break down to drink water under his feet.

Ram Rahim has also opened a girls’ school which is close to his living place, that is, the cave of the ashram. People who have been his devotees tell that in fact, he started exploiting girls from this girl’s school. Sadhvis used to brainwash girls and bring them closer to him. Every year on his birthday he used to do with his sages and students in his school.

Even if we dig out the history, such people have evolved from time to time and collapsed as well. However, some sects of the society still uphold the self-styled godmen every time an old fad drops and new cult arise.

India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021.

According to the World Happiness Report 2021 which was released by the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network, Finland was once again crowned as the world's happiest country. India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021. To make society happy, firstly it is really important to spread awareness on how it is okay to relax, chill and take a break. People tend to normalise overworking, which is so wrong. Of Course, we need a job to live and sustain ourselves but you shouldn't be working yourself to death, and the fact that this is seen as normal is really worrying. You spend more hours at work than you do awake at home, so if those hours are drenched in misery then sadness basically becomes the norm. A study from Gallup (2017) found that happier employees were more engaged, which resulted in improved customer relationships, and a 20 percent increase in sales.

Also, lowering down the crime level would act as a major factor towards a happy society. People who witness crimes, or come across evidence of a crime in their local area, can suffer anxiety and may feel demoralised or powerless. We should also teach them to stop judging people by materialistic things and accept everyone with all their flaws. Media plays an important role in making society happy because they have the power of reaching out to billions of people and helping them out through a solution-based approach.
