Slow Clap: How Baba Ramdev can hold up 'the Nation' with his bare hands
The sage and the TV anchor were seen sharing a few candid moments after a one hour long interview about Ayodhya, nationalism and Ram Rajya
India has been waiting too long for its Hercules to come and support the country — to pick us up from our misery and uphold the best in us.
And our hero is here. He came. He picked up the nation. And he won us over. If you haven't watched Baba Ramdev's interaction with Arnab Goswami, AKA the Nation (Short for The Nation Wants to Know), yet please go watch it. "Intellectual terrorists", as Baba ji named them, are making fun of him for picking up the Nation, but in that brief moment the sage showed us that he is strong enough to hold us all up after all.
Baba ji didn't just show his strength but also told us what we have to do to move forward. Forget. Start clean. What happened on some random date in December 1992 does not matter now. What matters is what's ahead of us — a $5 trillion economy. If we keep thinking of and reminding people who killed whom on various other such occasions throughout history, people won't move on, he said. And they need to move on. Why cling on to something you can't change. Move on for the better. Move on to India the superpower.
There are other benefits to crowning Baba ji the Hercules of India. We can get Patanjali products at government shops too. We can finally see what Gaumutra can actually do when the doctors use it to cure diabetes and make cancer patients rub the back of cows, Indian cows, we already know Gau aunties don't have that effect in India.
That is the day we look forward to — with bated breath and Ram in our hearts.
(The author has placed his immovable trust and belief on the idea that it won't be long before Ram Rajya is implemented in India, in its true sense. A $5 trillion dollar economy is just the first step. One day, he believes, the Indian Rupee will be more expensive than the US Dollar and he will be given respect when he visits them, if ever)
