The Flip Side – Documentary movie on asaram bapu
To share the contrasting observable events occurred in the recent past, here is what anyone following his beloved Guru – Saint Shri Asharamji Bapu (referred to as ‘Bapuji’), can quote as a simple event-sequence:
Episode # 1:-The melodious bhajans & kirtans (devotional songs) sung by Bapuji & His disciples were being played, people had gathered from all across the world to attend His satsang (discourse sessions) and maintained silence & discipline therein. The serenity could be challenged only by His words; His preaching! Even a child would not make much noise in the ambience. Thousands of people lighting the lamps of divinity in hands would be performing His aarti collectively. His gaadi (the mobile glass-cabin moving through the railway-like track spread across the satsang pandal) would access all His disciples & followers; and the beloved saint would smile, sing devotional song, and would sprinkle fragranced material onto His disciples. Disciples would feel eternal bliss and peace in His vicinity. His preaching would be all covered by media, city cables, internet and everybody would eagerly wait for His following satsang schedule. Number of ‘Poonam Vrat-dharis’ (disciples who, irrespective of the circumstances, made sure to anyhow make it to their Guru wherever His satsang sessions were held every month on Poonam, i.e. full moon day) and it used be only after having His darshan (glimpse) that they would have their eatables; until then, none of the Vrat-dharis would even take a droplet of water.
Episode # 2:- Unfortunate, evil and crooked minded people, exiled from His ashram due to their own misdeeds and undisciplined behavior, shook hands with conspirators in order to defame Him and tarnish His image amongst His followers for their trivial interests. Hence, the fabrication of the case of rape with a “supposed” minor girl, emerged; which was later on sensationalized by the “paid media”; that too without any evidence; and unwary public was kept away from their right to know the truth. Aggrieved by all this, various processions, rallies were held by the anguished disciples all over. Many renowned personalities have been constantly assembling to raise their voice for their innocent, venerable saint and it has been more than 780 days of good propaganda, protests etc. on roads, Jantar Mantar (New Delhi), followed by twitter trends, other social media campaigns; thereby leaving no stone unturned to spread the truth; yet, the truth doesn’t seem to have reached the masses!
Annoyed with this, a journalist from UK – Mr. Utpal Kalal, tried to dig the facts out of curiosity and came up with a documentary – ‘The Flip Side- Ek sach jo aap tak pahunch na saka’, thus presenting the truth and it is supposed to be released on the auspicious day of Diwali – November 11, 2015. Whosoever has doubts and apprehensions regarding the true saint – Asharamji Bapu, must watch this video, which will be accessible in DVD’s in all the ashrams of Bapuji and the people could thus be apprised of spiritual environment in His ashrams, where only divinity prevails; commission of any of the heinous offence(s), as claimed by the media, is beyond any prudent one’s imagination.(Refer link)
This documentary movie sheds light on:
- How Purush (male) ashram and Mahila (female) ashrams are managed separately in a proper & disciplined manner and are involved in public welfare in terms of Children upliftment via Gurukuls and Bal Sanskar Kendras (BSK), Women – upliftment by Mahila Utthan Mandals (MUM) & Yuva Sewa Sangh (YSS) for the youth.
- How meditation, Yoga, spiritual activities, yajna & philanthropic deeds, mobile medical facility, serving the cows etc. are being carried out in ashrams since long; and now that Bapuji is unjustly incarcerated for the past 2+ years, even today those activities are still going on with the same zest & zeal.
- How the cows are cared & fed in various ashrams can be seen. You will see interviews of ashram mates dedicated to Bapuji for their sole motive of spiritual evolution and to serve humanity selflessly for their revered Guruji. Even after He has been incarcerated, their disciples’ faith is yet so strong and firm that – the devoted girls challenge the media to dare to present even a single dedicated girl of the ashram on screen and let be known of the facts rather than presenting false & fabricated stories.
- How Bapuji, who represented India in World Religious Parliament in Chicago (USA) in 1993, simply sat on the roadside for demanding justice when Shanakaracharya Jayendra Saraswati was ensnared in a false case.
Apart from this, legal experts in ashram related matters will explain you about the fact that allegations of land- grabbing and Bapuji having crores of money illegally, is baseless. The allegation leveled on ashram of earning crores of turn-over by selling monthly magazines – ‘Rishi Prasad’ and ‘Lok Kalyan Setu’, which in terms of monetary cost, are worth just a pouch of chips that a child can use for the taste only; but are much significant – as those contain the Divine Knowledge of our saints, seers & sages and information about our culture; is frivolous. Eminent jurisprudents assert that POCSO Act‘s provisions have been misused, that too – when FIR does not even corroborate the rape after the alleged minor girl’s thorough medical examination.
Further baseless arguments leveled on Bapuji, like – of Him being a promoter of opium cultivation, are all null and void – as evidently proved & clarified by those staying and serving in ashram for 25+ years.
The tears of dedicated girls staying in ashram will indisputably shake your belief in the “paid media”. Dedicated boys and girls observing silence just to make their resolve stronger of ‘Bapuji’s sooner acquittal’ will definitely make one seriously ponder over the root-cause of the unjust incarceration of Bapuji; especially in the world where unnecessary talks just make a fashion to befool others.
Let’s watch the documentary – ‘THE FLIP-SIDE-Ek Sach Jo Aap Tak Pahunch Na Saka’ this Diwali to know the truth and decide ourselves as to whom to believe – An innocent venerable saint & His disciplined disciples or the “paid media”!
