Baba Ramdev’s Yoga and visit to Nagaland unique

2289

By Oken Jeet Sandham

Baba Ramdev Maharaj, internationally famed Yoga Guru, has done remarkable job by personally visiting Nagaland state to impart his rare “Yoga classes” to the Naga people. He has done this at State’s commercial hub, Dimapur and Capital, Kohima. Participants of his “Yoga classes” included VVIPs, Press personnel and ordinary citizens. Such rare opportunity has also come to the people of the State with free of charges and the only thing is they should have “Entry Pass” which, according to the organizers, is only for security reasons, as the “Yoga Guru”— due to his world-wide fame— has Z-Plus security cover.

Another great step the great Yoga Guru has done is his visiting to the Kohima Village where he is attending Model Village Program. His visit to this one of the greatest villages in Asia would surely show a very positive message to the rest of Naga people who are Christian. In fact, Nagaland is considered as a Christian State having over 90% Christian population. His visit to Kohima Village itself will make an indelible mark in the history of India in general and Nagaland in particular. He has plainly and sincerely shown that his coming to Nagaland is a message of universal brotherhood and nothing to do with religion, caste and creed. One of his main crusades is also fighting against “corruption.”

Here in the Northeast many consider that Sadhus and Gurus from mainland India are only to preach Hinduism and they could not bring any changes and understandings with the people in the region. Many also thought their wisdoms are not matched with that of regions’. Also many Indian Yoga gurus were not prepared to visit this part of the country in the past. Baba Ramdev’s extensive tours in the Northeast and Nagaland in particular have rather surprised many and this would really bring changes in the thinking of the people who are more gullible, simple and straightforward. Once the true message of life and the benefit of such “Yoga” are given to them, it will be there with them forever and even generations to come. We need many Baba Ramdevs to visit Nagaland and hope Baba Ramdev would visit Nagaland again in near future and stay here for at least few days.

  1. Yes, being a social activist and his enormous treatments to human sufferings Baba Ramdev Maharaj is highly respected by everyone including me. His visits to North-East is welcome – provided there is no religious or political agenda hiding inside.

  2. @Tomba, in your entry, you wrote, “manipuris including the tribes were hindus/ animists long before they started to convert to christianity by british christian missionaries and not vice versa”
    I am sorry to say my friend, it seems like you haven’t learned anything about the historical facts of manipur. Before calling other people as ‘evangelical idiot’ you need to first see what kind of person you are. Through your comment s, we can see that you are one of the ignorant manipuri who failed to identify himself. You need to be proud of your roots and not defy them by assumption. Don’t forget that history plays a big role in shaping the present. You can follow whichever religion you want, no one will force you to convert, just DON’T forget your roots and be proud of the unique identity that our fore fathers had and RESPECT other ethnic groups who follow another religions.

  3. Reddy’s Brother!What do know more about Kangleipak than us?Defitiely indian are ugly!Outraging thing is that indian abroad are the one who thinks themselves as “savior of culture” forgetting in their own back so much shits are scattered around!One crazy thing”superiour” stuffs too!

    Thats why Indian are bashed up all the time anywhere in the world!Radio tag was justified.I wud encourage that other countries sud set up laws like in US did.

    You know what we not saying this alone.One french woman said like this”you look very different(to my sister),this indian are very different from you…indian are ugly….When I go outside I wear black glass …I dont to see indian…I keep my head straight….ha ha ha I can not keep head up again ….road are full of holes…I will fall down….I m fed stay in india……”the french woman with her staggering english said this!

    • @Khuman – Thats why Indian are bashed up all the time anywhere in the world!Radio tag was justified.I wud encourage that other countries sud set up laws like in US did.

      Yep me too i think there should be a law in India for radio tagging whole NE people as well so that anyone of you are there in problem Cops can show up…What you say ??? How you will feel when the same things happen with NE region in India itself…

      You know something you are a pathetic, a stubborn, a fat-headed idiot with lot of foolish & stupid thinking in your mind…!!!

      And because of you we are getting troubled and hatred of racism is spread among us…

  4. @sanjib..he started the use of abusive n narrow minded approach towards the hindus first..

    @khuman so are you saying that meiteis were christians before they converted to hinduism..khuman if you are a meitei then you should be a proud hindu and not support any hao crap here

  5. “manipuris including the tribes were hindus/ animists”What Tomba!

    Who told you Kangleipak is hindu Nation?

    KEKE is right!Mayang destroyed Kangleipak’s culture and tradition to the extend that we as people are are not able to listen each others peacefully!This time we wont mince no anything of mayng things!

  6. @ Ta tomba and @Keke,
    Why fighting and insulting someone’s faith??

    I think, we should not insult someone’s faith be it hinduism, christainity or Sanamahism!!
    What I think important is upholding traditional and cultural value of our ethnic groups/tribes. Forceful conversion of faith should be stopped at any cost but if someone like the teaching of a faith, then it’s his/her prerogative to follow what he likes.

    Last christmass (I am not christain and don’t celebrate in my home, i attend x-mass party only when my office admin throws a party) When I was in Guwahati, I met a few manipuri couples. Well I was not invited in the party and just had quick conversations before leaving them. Very lovely couples and I am proud of the way they celebrate christmass very nicely. 1st couple: a bamon lady (thourani ) married to a meitei, 2nd couple (a tangkhul lady married to a bamon boy). The 2nd couple are christains. But, the lady was wearing “Phanek mapal naiba and Manipuri phee (may be wangkhei phee, I don’t knw)” to mark the special day. That impressed me much more than anything else.

  7. Baba RamDev,
    I am not sure whether his dream to become PM of India will materialize or not. I am sure how efficient will be as a politician, I am not sure whether he will be able to bring a balance in the economically and socially diverse India.

    But, despite everything I admire him for spreading health awareness.
    I like the fact that his trust has rupees 1100 crore (recently declared) and I like the skills that he is balancing his personality as being a yoga guru, a mass leader, entrepreneur having turnovers of hundreds of crores .

  8. Dear Oken,

    I thank you from the bottom of my hert for writing very nice and truthful article.
    I am from North India and because of the attitude of corrupt governments never knew that my country is so beautiful. I have brothers and sisters in other parts as well of my country which is ignored for so long by mainly congress and other political parties. I feel so happy that Baba Ramdev went there and I came to know more about Northeast part of the country. I look forward to visit this place soon…………….

  9. Ha ha Great!”bloody Indian”! was the emotion flashed in news paper last recently(Anurachal)!

  10. @ leitemba – Hehehe don’t be Stubborn okay…Hinduism never force anyone to convert any of us in Hindu…You must be knowing the fact better then me…So just take the teachings from Ramdev like others ( Chinese, Malaysian or any of it ) or any of the Indians if U do consider to be an Indian…!!! Cheers…

    • @Vinay D: dont poke ur mouth everywhere okay… !!!! why do u think leitemba is stubborn !!!! Indians need to learn how to appreciate others first, then only people will respect u… okeyyyyyy
      bdw, the class in Kohima looks like a sham, only Mayangs (read Indians) attended (if u see those ugly faces), can’t see any Nagas attending it except the journalists…

        • ^^ Its Hinduism which ruined the Meitei culture, religion, script and books.. Meiteis were forced to convert to Hinduism 300 years back, many were killed if opposed… do some homework before commenting on others.. also, please do no use derogatory words on public forum, its hows ur IQ level..

          thanks..

          • yeah thats why i said u are a baptist christian ‘lets convert them all’ evangelical idiot ..don’t make me laugh u ..manipuri people were converted by british forcefully to believe in jesus remember that and for your info manipuris including the tribes were hindus/ animists long before they started to convert to christianity by british christian missionaries and not vice versa

          • Keke, you’re the one that started off with derogatory and offensive words. Calling Indians – “ugly faces”. That clearly shows how ignorant and biased you are!

          • And Keke, just for the faults of one crazy king you can’t blame the whole faith! by saying Hinduism ruined Meitei culture. It is like saying all Muslims are Terrorists.. or that all Christians are fundamentalist who’s only aim is to convert people – even if it means lying to them!

      • @ Keke – well sorry kiddo for replying late…actually i really forget that I wrote a comment here…hmmmmm…
        So whats your problem dude…????
        Why some you always wanted to target Hindu culture ???
        I don’t wanna discuss about anything related to religion out here but you provoked me so let me tell you…
        Tell me one thing why currently in whole world there are larger number of Christians & Muslims ???
        Well i guess all of us know the answer…
        And yep about the faces or the looks issue so i need not to say we INDIANS ( Indians I’m saying because some of you jerks don’t think that you are an Indian ) look decent, beautiful, handsome with a sharp eye, a good physique which can speak out that you are a good Entrepreneur…

  11. IT IS GREAT TO KNOW THAT THE NAGAS LIKED BABA’S VISIT .WE SHOULD ALL UNDERSTAND BABA IS ONE GENUINE PERSON WHO IS MAKING ALL OUT EFFORTS TO UNITE AND AWAKEN THE PEOPLE FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE IN A VERY SELFLESS MANNER .LETS UNITE AGAINST PEOPLE WHO WANT 2 MALIGN HIS IMAGE FOR NARROW POLITICAL GAINS.KUDOS TO PEOPLE OF ENTIRE NORTH EAST WHO ARE SO NICE AND GENTLE AND HAVE ALWAYS BEEN NEGLECTED.BABA’S VISIT WILL DEFINITELY BRIGHTEN THEM .I AND SO MANY OTHER INDIANS WANT AND WISH ALL THE SUCCESS TO BABA AND HAPPINESS TO ENTIRE NORTH EAST.
