Ramdeo baba is in news for funny reasons. why such hue and cry on medicine containing human bones. Yes i do agree that if it contain such elements and they are claiming it is purely herbal it is an offence under consumer protection act but i feel if medicine is effective why should we bother ?

The Ramdeo Baba and medicine conspiracy is turning into a totally political issue. Parties and Politicians providing support to both parties, demanding reexamination of The 'Herbal' medicines. Along with this demand, they arent letting go of any chance of throwing random accusations at oppositions. And plus, there are plenty of news channels to give feed and footage to the issue, enlarging the problem with the best possible words.

I prefer to watch them talk while having lunch or dinner. Atleast, the harpic ad doesnt pop up frequently on news...

1) no water supply on Sat? err, ummm,okay. Atleast good that I read it here.
2)If samples given were not from proper sources as Baba said, then they are bound to be positive. However, if medicines he gives really contain human/animal bones, it's serious matter to be probed into to avoid further occurance.

Yoga promoted by Baba is universally accepted thing.
Aayurvedic medicines are good remedies in the long term with no side effects,though not immediate relief. So, nobody should think that objecting herbal medicines will promote MNCs.

if political leaders pressure selectors of indian cricet team to select the players they want or say shall have been selected and blame ideology behind nonselection of players, i think for them it has to make them understand that the size of team members is limited and if they shall insist,bring them under legal defarmation for pressurising the officials against national interst
