Swami Ramdev and his Fast against Black Money

3 June 2011

For those who have not yet noticed, the Indian political world is in turmoil as the high profile yoga guru Swami Ramdev (or Baba Ramdev) prepares to carry out his threat of inaugurating a mass public fast in Delhi on June 4 against black money and corruption in India. His demands are very draconian.

The latest news is that the equally famous popular activist Anna Hazare will join Ramdev on Sunday.

Well worth following on your favourite news media. Better still, on the Indian media. And even better, on broadcasts and telecasts in the Hindi language, which is Baba Ramdev’s favoured language medium.
