Sampadaka's tirade against Baba Ramdev

Mr. Sampadaka at it again. He is a beacon of negativity in an otherwise positive kannaDa blogosphere. Our exercise of writing periodic rebuttals to him will continue until he realizes his follies and becomes positive.

In his latest tirade against Baba Ramdev:
He does what he has become known for: unabashed negativity with insinuations, sanctimonious pontification etc. thrown in in good measure. Let us try to understand the (mis)articulations of a sick mind.

"ಭ್ರಷ್ಟಾಚಾರ ವಿರೋಧಿಸುವುದು ಈಗೀಗ ಒಂದು ಫ್ಯಾಷನ್. ಭ್ರಷ್ಟಾಚಾರ ವಿರೋಧಿ ಹೋರಾಟಗಳನ್ನು ಬೆಂಬಲಿಸುವವರ ಪೈಕಿ ಸಾಕಷ್ಟು ಮಂದಿಗೆ ತಮ್ಮ ಕಳಂಕಗಳನ್ನು ತೊಳೆದುಕೊಳ್ಳುವ ಆತುರ. ಅಣ್ಣಾ ಹಜಾರೆ ಹೋರಾಟಕ್ಕೆ ವ್ಯಕ್ತವಾದ ಸಾರ್ವತ್ರಿಕ ಬೆಂಬಲವನ್ನು ಗಮನಿಸಿದ ಮೇಲೆ ಇಂಥದ್ದೇ ಬೆಂಬಲದ ನಿರೀಕ್ಷೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ರಾಮದೇವ ಉಪವಾಸಕ್ಕೆ ಕೂರುತ್ತಿದ್ದಾರೆ."

The article shows his utter ignorance of samskR^itam. Take for instance:
"ಅಧ್ಯಾತ್ಮ ಅನ್ನುವುದು ಸಂಯುಕ್ತ ಪದ. ಅಧಿ+ಆತ್ಮ ಅಧ್ಯಾತ್ಮವಾಗುತ್ತದೆ. ಅಧಿ ಎಂಬ ಪದಕ್ಕೆ ಶ್ರೇಷ್ಠವಾದ, ಉನ್ನತವಾದ ಎಂಬ ಅರ್ಥಗಳಿವೆ."
according to Mr. Sampadaka adhi + Atma = shreShTha AtmA. Actually the pada is adhyAtma (not adhyAtmA, the last "a" is a hrasva).
adhyAtma is that stream of knowledge which deals with oneself, not the knowledge of "great souls" as the ignorant author of Sampadakeeya claims.

This being Mr. Sampadaka's knowledge level, one can rest one's case. But has to continue because there are many more bogus claims and sickening personal attacks which shouldn't go uncontested for truth's sake.

"ಆತ್ಮ ಶ್ರೇಷ್ಠವಾಗುವುದ…
