God Goes To Court

I'm still struggling to retrieve the previously written posts from my 'gone funny' thumb drive. In the meantime read this which is from the Times of India.

A man claiming to be God and wanting recognition of his divine status on Thursday failed to get the judicial endorsement he had sought. The Bombay High Court rejected 30-year-old Dharmendra Mishra's application, saying it was not in its jurisdiction to respond to his prayers. 'I am Vishnu, Buddha and Christ. I know everything that goes around,' said Mishra, who also pleaded with the court that he should be given the reins of the country and the UN as he was God. The matter came up before a division bench of acting Chief Justice J. N. Patel and Justice S. C. Dharmadhikari, who dismissed Mishra's plea. Mishra, a resident of Kurla who works in a call centre, claimed in his petition that he had written to the President, the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterji, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and Chief Justice of India K. G. Balakrishnan about his divinity. He stated in his petition that his wife is Laxmi, and that she recollects her previous births. Mishra also told reporters that he was ready to undergo a cyanide test and claimed he would not die. From The Times of India.

I reckon they should give him the job. He couldn’t make a bigger mess of it and if he really is God he might become very nasty if he doesn't get what he wants.

Why not give him a real test -- like stopping an in-progress terrorist attack (that's convenient) or "curing" an amputee -- something we could verify! Anybody wanting the job should prove he can do better than the status quo.

Perhaps he should learn from the "True Buddha" Lu Sheng Yan. Hahaha~! He do make a lot of money, power, publication and follower.

Even M'sia govt allowed him to do a ceremony in Bkt Jalil Stadium....

Even Lord Rama was sent to exile. Even lord krishna spent his life with cows. even lord buddha lived a life leaving his kingdom. I got lot of love and respect from the people. perhaps that may be the reason I am doing this. but still there is a big question mark for the seriousness of the people for
truth and the idealistic approach of life. Perhaps there is a wide gap between the realistic and idealistic approach of life for all sectors of people. Let me test myself and the people. definately the Truth will come out if God is There, He has Compassion and Justice in him and he is not arrogant.
