It is an edge-of-the-seat anticipation. Everyone’s eyes are settled on the man lying on the table exposed chested. As everybody looks on enthusiastically, Vikram Baba waves his hand buzzing around, serenades a few mantras and afterward cuts open the mid-region of the man with his exposed hand. Blood overflows out and the Baba puts his finger in the stomach and hauls out a bit of ‘infected tissue’. The gathering of people lets out a wheeze as the patient sits up and looks fit like a fiddle – his torment gone.
It was one of those ‘psychic surgery’ and it was performed without utilizing a surgical tool, forceps or some other surgical instruments. For a change it was not a ‘fake Baba’ pulling a quick one on simple individuals, yet a part of the Jana Vignana Vedika (JVV) uncovering the confidence healers.
On the event of its first national gathering, the pragmatist association exhibited various enchanted traps here on Thursday to uncover the quacks who take individuals for a ride. The Public Gardens saw the JVV parts strolling on smoldering charcoal, pulling an auto with strings guided into the substance, driving blindfold, dipping fingers in bubbling oil while planning ‘bhajjis’. Shilpa Bai, an understudy from Anantapur, was the cynosure of everyone’s eyes as she squatted in mid-air with nothing to help her.
“There is no enchantment or mantra included here. “Anyone can do it. Each trap has a logical clarification,” said T.v. Rao, national secretary, JVV. It is really the ‘mantra dandam’, the twirly doo on which she rests her hand that backings her. “The L-molded bar is altered two feet profound into earth that goes about as the supporting base,” clarified M. Shankar Prasad of JVV.
After presentation of each trap, the JVV parts clarified the logical rule included in it to disperse superstition. Spectators were astounded when told the trap behind the lady dunking her fingers in hot oil while searing bhajjis. “She plunges her fingers first in cool oil before setting them in the dish,” a volunteer clarified.
Head administrator Narender Modi’s disputable comment that plastic surgery and hereditary surgery existed in aged India likewise came in for assault at the JVV program. “It is preposterous. In the event that science was so developed in the past why did they compose on palm leaves rather than paper?” Mr. Rao asked.
JVV agents from Telangana, AP, Pondicherry, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Odisha went to the project which went for advancing exploratory temper in the nation. “We need the Telangana and AP governments to bring out an Anti-Superstition Act. Such an enactment is as of now being actualized by the Maharashtra government,” Mr. Rao said
