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

PM Narendra Modi Launches Plan to Tackle Water Shortage in India

Modi Unveils Plan to Tackle Water Shortages in India's Heartland States

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday launched a 60-billion-rupee ($842 million) plan to tackle water shortages in the country’s seven heartland states where agriculture is a mainstay.

India, the world’s second-most populous country, faces the worst long-term water crisis in its history as demand outstrips supply, threatening farm output and overall economic growth in Asia’s third-largest economy.

Almost every sector of the $2.6 trillion economy is dependent on water, especially agriculture, which sustains two-thirds of India’s 1.3 billion people.

“Water shortages in the country not only affect individuals and families; the crisis also has an effect on India’s development,” Modi said. “We need to prepare the new India to deal with every single aspect of the crisis.”

The plan launched by Modi would help replenish ground water and boost overall availability in Rajasthan, Karnataka, Haryana, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Gujarat states, which produce staples such as rice, wheat, sugar and oilseeds.

India is the world’s leading producer of an array of farm goods, and nearly 60% of the irrigation for agriculture comes from ground water, mainly through electric water pumps. Subsidised electricity gives farmers an incentive to pump out more water, a key reason behind fast-depleting water tables in the vast country.

Supplying clean drinking water to millions of poor people and reviving moribund irrigation projects were a key part of Modi’s policies for India, where the monsoon accounts for nearly 70% of the annual rains needed to water farms and recharge aquifers and reservoirs.

Nearly half of India’s farmland, without any irrigation cover, depends on annual June-September rains to grow a number of crops.

Drinking water is also an issue, as about 200,000 Indians die every year due to inadequate access to safe water and 600 million face high to extreme water stress, according to the National Institute for Transforming India (NITI) Aayog, a think tank chaired by Modi.

According to UK-based charity WaterAid, about 163 million people in India — roughly 12% of the population — do not have access to clean water close to home.

Every summer water shortages tend to be more acute in large cities such as the capital New Delhi, Chennai — a car-making center dubbed “India’s Detroit”, and Bengaluru, the country’s software capital.

Modi also exhorted farmers to increasingly adopt drip and sprinkler irrigation and use water-management techniques as well as eschewing water-guzzling crops such as rice and sugar cane. (VOA)
