An Open Letter to all Media Houses and Troll Pages

Nobel Prize, Malala and mocking spiritual leader Sri Sri, it was all based on a report by Deccan Chronicle. There was a press conference going in Latur. Ok pause here, yes Latur, where huge water crisis is going on, which is in news for so long. Sri Sri went there to overview the conditions, and worked there with volunteers to revive the drought hit river.

Art of Living has already rejuvenated 17 rivers in India.

So coming back to the press conference, the question was asked by this reporter, which shows his high IQ : “So you are doing this to get a Nobel Peace Prize ?”

What a dump question to ask from a figure who has already got hundreds of honours, 15 honorary doctorates and highest civilian honor from various countries. Inspite of all, this man sleeps for just 3-4 hours a day to work, travels and meets people, has played a key role in mediating peace and conflict resolutions at all levels, local and global. He is the only person who has been to Pakistan and Iraq twice to heal people.

Indian media works purely on sensation and hypocrisy. This has become their nature to publish and spread lies. So the news that hit was not that his organisation is  spending 105 crores in Latur, but about Nobel and Malala, who have no role in anything. Somehow every other question from long press conference disappeared and  internet trolls, with the help of manipulated media links takes up the space. This is how it works.

Regarding Malala, it was not just Sri Sri, 86% people agree that Malala didn’t deserve the prize. According to Alfred Nobel’s will, the Peace Prize is to be given to individuals and institutions that “have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.” But with time, Nobel Committee has forgotten it.

Moreover Sri Sri Ravi Shankar never said that he was offered a Nobel Prize as reported. Here’s the unedited version of what was asked and what he said.

However, the world is still puzzled to know the reason why Barack Obama has got the prize. Later the Nobel secretary regretted the decision himself.

I would feel great if any so called peace spreading journalist comes up and spends up a day with Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, the work he do and the way he meets people. Its  very easy to write and publish anything with no claims because your media house has a big label. It is also not hidden that journalists and media houses have to earn their bread and butter by writing lies and rubbish but greed has a limit. Take a breathe and help out to spread and work for some positivity in society.

Meanwhile, without wasting any time, Sri Sri’s foundation Art of Living continued working for a dried up dam in Nashik.
