Of late priests, godmen, gurus and other religious leaders are showing a sordid side of themselves! Rape, molestations, blackmail, assaults, greed and debauchery seem to be springing from their holy loins and seeing this there seems to be a growing disenchantment from their followers for all things holy!

“If priests are like this, what’s the point of being spiritual?” many ask.

“Is there any point in being good, when they themselves fall like this?” ask others.

“If religion can’t keep them from wickedness, how will it keep us from the same?” ask the youth.

Many years ago, there was an old lady, who was a close friend. She lived in an old folks home, after her husband passed away, and though she reached the grand old age of ninety, used to ask me to pick her up, once a month and take her out. Once, while driving back, I told her about a priest who I felt was quite corrupt. “How can he call himself a priest?” I exclaimed angrily.

“Bob!” she said turning to me, a youngster who she knew was disillusioned, “Behind those priestly robes there lies a man!”

I have never forgotten her words. What she meant was, I should remember that like all men and women, these people who we consider religious are also tempted, are also a prey to the lust of the flesh and can fall a victim to greed. They have the power to withstand those temptations as long as they focus on God. The moment they look away, they become but men.

Decades ago, I flew down to Kentucky to attend the ordinationof my brother, as a priest. It was a wonderful ceremony and later as we were about to have lunch, he turned to me and asked, “Any advice, big brother?”

“Yes!” I said, “But it’s not about a Christian priest I’m going to give you the example off. It’s a swami in Kolkata!” My brother leaned forward. “This swami,” I said, “had many devotees, but he had a peculiar way of blessing them. When they bent down in front of him, he blessed them with his feet!”

“What’s your point?” asked my brother with his eyes.

“Sometimes,” I said, “A women would bend down and as she did, her sari would fall away from her shoulders! Immediately, the swami kicked her out of the way!”

“He kicked the sight of temptation out of his sight!” said my brother softly to himself.

As long as our eyes are focused on God, we will not fall. Even now as we are appalled at what these priests are doing, we are looking at them. Stop doing so; these are but men behind those cassocks, those priestly robes, turn your eyes on God only and you will not fall, even as they did, turning away from Him..!

In the good old days when kings sat in their castles and sent their men into battle, quite often, guards from his fort watchtowers would shout, “Lone horseman riding to the fort!” And soon, they would identify him through his banner as one of their own, coming from the battlefield and let him in, where tired and exhausted he would be led directly to the king.

“We have lost the battle your majesty!” he would blurt out and quite often in his rage, the king would in a fit of temper draw his sword to kill the man.

“Don’t kill me I’m just the messenger!” the poor man would shout falling at the kings feet.

Today as I see social media, especially WhatsApp being blamed for riots, and incidents of lynching, I think the same is happening; we are blaming the messenger!

Let’s look at the old messenger, the fellow who rode in on his horse again, why did he hurry to the king? Sohis majesty could take preventive measures; like sending more troops, raising his drawbridge, or fleeing to a safer place to do battle later.

In the same way social media of today, which I liken to the messenger of yore, is helping such preventive measures in a big way: Today, people know that any act of violence can be filmed, but more than just filmed it can be flashed in a jiffy to thousands and millions, and knowing this, such violent acts, which otherwise would have been a daily occurrence are actually being prevented.

Social media has become the policing of the world! Yes, there are sporadic cases of lynching, rapes, assaults on women and so on, but there’s always the fear somebody is recording the whole act and they will be caught and punished.

What we don’t see is the marvelous work of the messenger in preventing crimes, maybe hundreds and thousands of them.

What we are told about is a riot here or a lynching there, spread throughmiscreants using social media.

Today, the country is actually a safer place because of our smartphones, the CC cameras, and finally the powerful ability of social media to reveal the truth to the world like nothing else can.

‘Why?’ I ask, ‘Do you want to kill the messenger?’

Do we want the only safeguards many of us have to be removed?

Do we want terror and injustice, rapes, lynching incidents, assaults on journalists, and molestation of women, not to be exposed, to be hidden and thus increase?

Is that the reason you want to kill the messenger?

The Nation Wants To Know: Please tell us that’s not the reason..!

The most dreaded sound we Indians heard during the British rule, waspolice knocking at our door, “Who’s it?” we asked, voices fearful.“Police! Open up!” came a British or Anglo-Indian accent.

We threw the English out, but retain the fear their police evoked, by equipping ours to do the same! 

“What you thinking, only the white man could induce fear?” laughed a politician, “Even we can! Just watch!”

“Knock! Knock! Knock!”

“Ha, ha, ha!” laughed the same politician to me, “Did you see their fearful faces! Come with us, when we go to the next house and our policeman knock!”

“Why?” I asked, “it will be the same knock, and same reaction!”

“Ah but we are going to videotape the whole thing!”


“To send it to the Queen! To show her, what she and her subjects did before our freedom, we have perfected after Independence!”

I heard a clamour from across our borders all around, “We have perfected it even more!” said Pakistan. “Your policemen come with arrest warrants, ours with loaded rifle!”

“We’ve done an even better job,“sniggered Myanmar, “we shoot them even as they whisper fearfully behind their door!”

“We hack them as they step out!” grinned Bangladesh, “Especially writers and blasphemers!”

“Door?” laughed China, “The door has already disappeared, when our police arrive!”

The politician turned to me, “You see why we need to videotape our great leap forward?” he asked, “See how far behind we’ve been lagging! Ourneighbours have far outpaced us, in the ‘fearful police knock’ arena!”

“Do you think the Queen of England is going to be happy?” I asked, “Why should she?”

The politician looked at me, then patiently sat on a chair, “Listen Bob, have you ever been a teacher?”

“No!” I admitted.

“Well, then imagine you’re one. What happens when you find a student who’s coming last in class, suddenly catching up with the others?”

“I will be filled with joy and satisfaction, that I’ve done a good job!” I said nodding gleefully.

“Exactly!” said the politiciansmiling and thumping me on my back, “The poor Queen has been waiting for us to catch up with the rest of the class, and must have even given up hope about our ability to do so, but after seeing this video, she will be overjoyed!”

I watched, the video man set up his equipment, “Take One!” he shouted his voice quivering with excitement. The police knocked, a man opened the door and was whisked away.

A day later, the Supreme Court sent him back, but that part was not seen by the Queen as she smiled at her brilliant students…!
