And How Many Nigmanand ?

The sad demise of Swami Nigmanand at the end of a prolonged fast protesting against mining on the Ganga river bed and its surroundings,raises so may questions.The role of Media along with the Government in this matter is also in question.The Media never highlighted the noble cause for which a 36 years old Sant had to sit for a prolonged fast unto death.
                        When it comes to protests,those by genuine people for genuine causes get ignored and the fakes and hi fi Swamis and Babas  get all the attention.Swami Nigmanand was a true saint.He adopted the Gandhian way of protest and never sought publicity for his noble cause ,was just and his method,most peaceful.And obviously everyone chose to ignore it till the end.
