Baba Ramdev ki ajab dastaan

I have a healthy dislike of gurujis and babajis of all ilks. Top of my list are the miracle workers who claim to cure uncurable diseases - they so obviously prey on the helpless and the hopeless, people clutching at straws of hope.

Second on my list are the preachers who say recite this mantra or embrace this form of worship and thou shalt attain salvation. As if.

Both of the above, invariably, get drunk on the money and power that fame and following brings. And then come the whispers of sexual favours, molestation, even murders involving the 'Holy One'. Does not sound God-like to me!

However a New Age calls for New Age Gurus. This guru is one who offers more of practical and psychotherapeutic advice than deep religious or spiritual fundas. And in a format that's nicely packaged, easy to digest.

The two gurus who fit the bill are Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and Swami Ramdev .

The key take away from Sri Sri's 'Art of Living' course is the 'sudarshan kriya' breathing technique while Ramdev is chiefly known for teaching ordinary individuals of varying shapes and sizes all manners of yoga asanas and pranayams.

Art of Living has a more premium brand image while Ramdev has a wide, mass appeal. But both, I think, are doing a great job of delivering ancient Indian wisdom to a modern, skeptical and stressed population.

The Bone of Contention
And now, Ms Brinda Karat is accusing Ramdev of selling 'adulterated' medicines. Financial Express reports:

"We came to know in June-July last year that herbal ayurvedic medicines prepared by Divya Yog Pharmacy, owned by Ramdev, contained animal material and human bones. We then handed over the medicine samples to Department of AYUSH and now they have confirmed our apprehension," she said.

But the swami's followers as well as leaders across the political spectrum have come out in support of Ramdev. Because medicines have never been his primary appeal.

As Acharya Balkrishanji, director of Ramdev's Divya Yog Pharmacy pointed out in an interview with the TOI,"While Swami Ramdev started teaching pranayam about 15 years ago, we started selling medicines only a year and a half back. The turnover is Rs 1 crore annually."

The 'overall assets' of the Divya Yoga Mandir Trust, incidentally, are worth Rs 45 crores.

Sach kya hai?
As of now, Ramdev denies adding animal content to his medicines . What, then, of the samples tested which Health Minister Anbumani Ramadoss says contain some ' animal residue'?

And does 'animal residue' necessarily mean 'animal and human bone' as Ms Karat and ex-workers of Ramdev's pharmacy allege?

Dr Madan Gulati, Deputy Director, Ayurveda, UT, said to the Tribune: "Ayurveda is not a system of medicine for vegetarians alone. In fact, it is incomplete without the use of minerals and animal parts. Ayurvedic medicines contain herbs, minerals, shells and corals but there is no place for human bones".

This is what the description on Ramdev's own website states:
Medicine: Divya Arshkalp Vati (for curing piles)
Main Constituents: Pure rashont, termalia, chooti harad, bakayan seed, neem seed, reethatawka, desi kapoor, kaharva, khoonkharaba, makoya,alua, nagdaun etc.

Khoonkharaba? Apparently there is a herb by that name.
What I find more interesting is the "etc". Etc could be anything.

The Solution
If Ramdev stands firm that his medicines do not contain any 'non-veg' content then he has to be able to prove this by getting more samples tested at a nationally recognised laboratory.

If they do contain some 'animal' elements he should simply come out and say: "Some medicines may contain animal content - but they work. You decide if you want to buy them!"

To my mind even that would not pose a problem:
a) as long as no people or animals are actually killed for their bones
b) those buying the medicine are aware of the facts and accept them

When I was growing up 7 Seas Cod liver oil was a much favoured prescription for 'health and vitality'. My brother and I consumed those yucky transparent yellow capsules for years. (God forbid if one opened in your mouth before swallowing!)

And this, in a family that has always been strictly 'vegetarian'.

But then, the question arises - would Ramdev's medicines qualify as 'ayurvedic' if they contain animal / human bone?

What is ayurveda?
The big mystery today is - what is an ayurvedic product in the first place. My first memory of a product that unabashedly called itself thus: Vicco vajradanti toothpowder and toothpaste. "Ayurvedic jadi bootiyon se bana sampoorn swadeshi..." went the jingle.

Then, multinationals discovered Ayurveda.

a) For tax purposes: If an OTC offering or cosmetic product is labelled 'ayurvedic' - there are several commercial benefits.

The most famous example is Vicks Vaporub which uses the exact same formula in America and India, except here it lists the Indian (herbal) ingredients on the label. The company was able to establish that all of its ingredients were listed in traditional Ayurvedic texts.

b) Customer appeal: Companies realised that any product labelled ayurvedic or herbal connoted 'natural' and 'chemical freee' to the customer. The Hindu reports that the Rs 300-crore segment is perceived to be "the hottest and the fastest growing". And hence everything from toothpaste to shampoo to face cream went ayurvedic with a vengeance.

So we saw new and amazing products like Clinic Plus Ayurvedic Hair Wash with natural ingredients such as neem, tulsi and cinnamon leaf oil...

Do a few drops of one or the other plant extract make a product 'ayurvedic'? How herbal do you need to be to qualify as truly herbal??

Someone, somewhere urgently and immediately needs to set clear and definite standards for what constitutes 'ayurveda'. Both in medicine and cosmetics. Or, in the name of ancient India, consumers will continue to be taken for a ride. Maybe one they are enjoying - but a ride nevertheless.

Meanwhile the Brinda Karat vs Ramdev slugfest continues... And at the end of it all, both will come out unscathed. Looking good in the eyes of their respective followers. Make no bones about it!


  1. I think there are quite a few fallacies you can add to the list : like toothpastes containing calcium (!!), mineral water with 200% oxygen and Nutri-flow system fridges....
    With the whole intellectual rights, copyrights and patenting complications, there doesn't seem to be a clear authority (govt/private) on Ayurveda. Just a bunch of loonies screaming about Indian Culture and Americans cashing in on the confusion.

    Yes. someone, please help us !

  2. this yogi baba is a genuis! its only after this incident that i came to know that he has his own factory and own brand of medicines and all! wow! this is definitely going into my you-dont-need-mba-to-suceed speech at the bschool interviews! :) i am sure he must be using vedic maths for accounting purposes! ;)

  3. yeah, you're perfect in your observations!..The problem is that politicians seem to only favour niche guruji's who do favours to them in the guise of saints!

  4. One common hole I find in stories by the Indian media is the lack of detail. In this case, what are the specifics of the lab that did the analysis ? Where is the full report of the analysis which has the percentages of each chemical present ? Where is the rebutt from distinguished medical scholars or doctors ? This "he said, she said" debates can end instantly. It pretty easy to prove if a certain ingredient is harmful to humans. Even after touting ourselves to be a progressive society, we don't press for details and look at things scientifically in this day and age. Sad, but true.

  5. There is more to this than just the issue of contaminated 'medicines'. The whole thing reeks of a massive conflict of interest. Ramdev prescribes a way of life and also offers 'medical' products supporting the same. This is like a hospital having a take in a pharma company. Why should 'yogis' & their other businesses be held to different standards?

  6. Last time I was in India, my local hometown was teeming with the Bhakts of Baba. A couple of doctors I know were pretty pissed off because a lot of people had stopped visiting them for smaller ailments. Yet others were worried that this do-it yourself attitude for more serious kind of illness might spell trouble for the people.

    In any case, my own skepticism was driven away by the fact a lot of his advice made a lot of common sense and you could leave alone his spiritual and religious leanings.

    Of course, as usual, none of the major newspapers have taken any initiative in buying his products from open markets and getting them tested privately to get to the bottom of the controversy. Maybe they are all afraid of Brinda Karat’s labor unions at their own presses. In fact initially, no one except Indian Express, even mentioned the fact that the root of this controversy might have been in labor dispute.

    Oh well! We deserve our Wynand Papers, don’t we?

  7. Well,Well..Another one of the Baba issues..After the entire episode, I switched on one of Baba's episodes on Aastha Channel. And he was strongly berating the MNC's in his discourse. After Brinda Karat went public with her findings, Baba had accused her of doing this on the egging of MNC's. Dont know what the truth is. But simply having animal products in medicined should not be a worry but what will be worrying for Baba is that his followers will not take it kindly if he agress that his medicines do have animal content..

    To be truthful, this makes better reading on a morning than reading about another of Mushy's grand ideas to solve Indo-Pak dispute.. :-)


  8. herbal products are not entirely herbal as we expect them to be.they contain some amount of chemicals.

    and tht pic!wer did u find it?

  9. I had been pretty impressed with this 'yogi' becuase his USP has been one which can be readily verified. Many of my relatives are satisfied with his ways.

    Though with all this soft corner, I hoped that he didn't disappoint me in this episode, but unfortunately he did. After Brinda Karat came with the allegations, his supporters ransacked CPI(M)'s office at some places. I felt that as against his counterpart sadhu who added flame to the fire, he would ask people to calm down and stop protesting. Although he didn't ask them to go on rampage, he didn't even calm them down (to the best of my knowledge).

    If what I have gathered is up-to-date, I would say that he is fit to be a guru, but not a sadhu.

  10. I have seen people benefitting from Baba Ramdev's advice. Here is my post about it.

  11. Newspaper editorial confirms the issues raised by Brinda Karat.

    Its high time the Pharmacy comes out and clarifies its stand.


  12. It is very easy to be materialistitic, running after money day in and day out. But to offer something to the society is not that easy. A minimum of 10% of people across the section are frauds-may be it corporate executives, businessmen, doctors, engineers and also babas. But then the remaining 90% are genuine.But for media it is always interesting to flash stories about people are known and the slightest news that they get is enough for them to malign someone's image to the extent that all the countless service that he would have done goes for a

  13. I don't understand why the people in India are so fake when it comes to Vegetarianism. Some say eggs are vegetarian...(such crap!)

    If we go analyzing everything then even the daily sugar we eat is made from polishing it with bone charcoal (obtained from dead animals).

    Does being a vegetarian really make a difference to who you are? Or does it qualify for you to go to heaven?

    I think the people here should stop with this hypocritic lifestyle. If you eat non-veg..good. If you eat veg ...great! Good for you.

  14. I guess this whole debate is more about People's faith in Ramdev than about the medicinal value of the drugs.
    To top it all Laloo gave a spicy comment "Jab tak umar badhata kya farak parta hai ki usme manav ya danav ka haddi hai".Ignorance is Bliss..

  15. Here is an article ..a prof this time earning a bad reputation to the institute.

  16. Very well written. I was planning a post on this discovery of Ayurveda by looking at a Vicks Inhaler. The Inhaler is "ayurvedic", but in the US, for obvious reasons, it is not! There are so many other examples. For these cos, mostly it is a matter of tax concessions, except perhaps for those like Dabur which sells mostly Avurvedic stuff.

  17. Heard abt him a lot, Baba Ramdev happened to visit Indore when I was home and saw the crowd he pulls and its just 'coz of 2 things - simplicity and yoga! He doesn't talk of miracles, neither any advertisements.

    Kinda skeptical about that animal parts in his meds controversy :|

    from somewhere, I got this 3 hour long video describing yoga in details - haven't seen it properly but seems quite interesting! Anyone interested lemme know.

  18. What happened to this issue.
    I suppose Brinda Karat was scared off at the prospect of losing large number of votes...

    It seems to me that it was more politically motivated rather than having any basis in those allegations. Swami Ramdev once came on TV reading the background of the people who hurled accusations at him. Some of the employees were members of the communist party. Also , one of the ex labourers was on TV talking to press. The way she spoke was rude and jarring to the ears. It seemed clear that someone had put the words in her mouth. She would look around (probably to brinda karat who would not be seen in the camera) when asked a question and then speak the same old record again and again.

    From what I have seen of Baba Ramdev on TV, he seems a genuine and honest person.

  19. Just like there are fake spiritualists in our country, so are fake anti-spiritualists too. They understand nothing about yoga and spirituality, claim to be broad-minded while following Western systems superstitiously. Saying that all yogis and babas are fake is just like saying that all Americans are war-mongers. Baba Ramdev has done wrong by not complying to the standards set by the government, and he should be given appropriate warning and treatment for that. It ends there. But, anyways I feel he has benefitted society more than all these Karat-brand politicians have ever done.

    "Yoga Pranayama have been
    successful in curing 200 cancer patients" - Swami Ramdev in "Yog Sandesh" (English) September 2006 issue, of Swami Ramdev Ji's Trust in India.

    Cancer is a class of diseases or disorders characterized by uncontrolled
    division of cells and the ability of these cells to invade other tissues,
    either by direct growth into adjacent tissue through invasion or by
    implantation into distant sites by metastasis. Metastasis is defined as the
    stage in which cancer cells are transported through the bloodstream or
    lymphatic system. Cancer may affect people at all ages, but risk tends to
    increase with age, due to the fact that DNA damage becomes more apparent in
    aging DNA. It is one of the principal causes of death in developed

    I quote from page 55 of the monthly magazine "Yog Sandesh" (English)
    September 2006 issue, of Swami Ramdev Ji's Trust in India, "Yoga Guru Swami
    Ramdev while addressing the people said that Yoga & Pranayama have been
    successful in curing 200 cancer patients and he is ready to give evidence.
    The ancient science is also beneficial in case of AIDS and experiments are
    being carried out in that area. He would make formal announcement once the
    tests are completed". Swami Ji said, "Till now I have completed more than
    ten thousand scientific experiments. The patients of diabetes, obesity,
    hypertension, depression, can take part in the seven-day camp and check the
    results on their own. They will notice 50% improvement within a week".

    Maharishi Ramdev's teachings are as per Hindu scriptures and make sense in this modern era. I remember a TV program where he commented on how people have forgotten to breathe. It is so true. Medically it is proven that lack of oxygen makes one feel sleepy, tired and also gives a headache.

    He is in news again where he is asking everyone to keep away from cola and junk food. We are forgetting our culture of offering Chai, Coffee, lassi, nimbu pani to our guests instead now we offer, orange or translucent.

    The rich and developed countries have also realised the negative effects of colas and now want to get away from it and junk food due to high obesity amongst people in these countires.

    It is an individual responsibility to exercise caution and understand what is good or bad for health.

  24. Dear Organizers at Art of Living, New Jersey: number of intellectuals, philanthropists, defenders of Peace, Freedom and Civil Right activists like Guru Shri Ravi Shankar Ji with greater eloquence and more original minds than I posses has spoken on these issues of World Peace, Racial Equality, Social Justice, Liberty and Equal Justice for All.

    You may not endorse or support my religious, political or other views, whatever they may, in fact be. I fully respect and honor your judgments because you are entitled to them, at least in America, to freely express your views on any subject. In fact I will defend your right to do so even though your views may be diametrically opposed to mine.

    I respectfully disagree with the Organizers the way Art of Living workshop (2-15-07 to 2-20-07) at New Jersey was conducted. Respected Anand Ji & other teachers are superb in teaching breathing exercises and different yogic Kriyas but rest of the contents does not fit with the philosophy of Guru Ravi Shankar Ji or Vedic Education on human values.

    What good is that able body and able mind with all kinds of means, who can not stand up for their own dignity, respect, honor & basic human rights and for the same for less fortunate or for the community they belong to? What good are such able body, mind and affluent individuals who do not believe in racial equality, social justice, peace, liberty & justice to all? These basic human values are not an issue for discussions/print only. If you believe in the basic human values than you must defend them for your self and for others.

    In the workshop in addition to teaching “I will do it for my mind, body & soul, I will defend true human values” must be taught. We must understand it is the duty of every one who are more fortunate than others to give some of their talent, time and money to defend human values before and after retirement at community, state or national level.

    Vedic Education is not Hindu Religion. In fact Hinduism is not a religion; it is a way of life honoring & defending true human values by balancing mind, body & soul. All along its history it is the Shatriya’s like Lord Rama, Lord Krishna, Lord Shiva, Godess Durga & Guru Nanak Dev Ji with his 10 incarnations who have been worshiped and are still worshiped. History tells Priest/Pundit/Guru has never been worshiped. They have always been highly respected and honored. There are incidents in history where the disciples have given up their lives for them. Priests/Pundits/Guru worships Shatriya’s as defenders of true human values with divine spiritual arms Lord Rama bow & arrow, Lord Krishna Sudershan Chakra, Lord Shiva Trishul, Godess Durga Sword, Maze, Chakra & Trishul, Guru Gobind Singh Ji the 10th incarnation of Guru Nanak Dev Ji Sword and spread their teachings in the society. A Shatriya can use divine arms as per Vedic teachings to honor & defend true human values; racial equality, social justice, peace, liberty & justice to all.

    We all know; we can not unite people with one Religion and neither can we unite them with one Culture. Education especially Vedic Education preached by Guru Shri Ravi Shankar Ji is the most powerful tool with which we can unite people of different or no faith, a city, a state, a country and the entire world. America & India where the people are the government they do not get rid of their burdens by attempting to unload them on their government. With knowledge from ancient Vedic Education being spread around the world by Guru Ravi Shankar Ji, let us defend together true human values to bring racial equality, social justice, liberty, justice, prosperity & peace to every human in the world.
    God Bless the Universe and every human on this earth.

What Baba Ramdevji is saying or preaching is 100% truth and I can say from my experience that he is the light of healthy life! People without knowledge and experience just speak out against genuine people like Baba Ramdevji and making negative comments-just for commenting is not proper and beneficial to the suffering people!
