Sigh ... during Om Mandli, Lekhraj Kirpalani used to get up early, put toothpaste on the Sisters' brushes and make tea before gently waking them. During the early days of Global service, the Holy Ghost BapDada, or some disincarnate Dadi, would (allegedly) make the rounds of followers' houses and centers in their angelic bodies making sure that every BK was up and awake (not that that worked every time).

Now all they get is a computerised call to their mobile phone! Perhaps for an extra 50 Rupees they could send a electric shock to make sure the BK is REALLY awake?

So ...
    Anand Thakkar, Director, Ultimate Solutions, A-19, Chandan Appartment, Beside Vasukanan Tower, KK Nagar Road, Ghatlodia, Ahmedabad – 380061.
    2. Issue a Local Cheque in favour of “Ultimate Solutions” and Deposit it into any Branch of ICICI Bank, in Account No. 034505001172.
All taken from publicly advertised sources ... how do the finances break down on this one? Who is making what, directly or indirectly?

One line I find interesting in the 'Ultimate Solutions' terms and conditions, along with talk of "leaking user name and passwords to unauthorised persons", is; "Cancelled without refund ... If it is found that a user either has violated or may violate the terms of use of service, then provider has full rights to cancel the registration of the user without refunding any amount on account of charges towards the Service."

One of those conditions being passing on the Godly Knowledge sold for free to others ...

Big Brother is watching you even in your bed :shock: .

Thanks Orwell.

Here the income is secondary. More important is to control them in their beds with triggering song.

I am with you on that Tom. Part of me thinks that the BKWSU is part of all that New World Order stuff; the 'New World Religion' and the ultimate, hypnotic opiate of the masses. I also consider that a 'slowly, slowly' game is being played that is gradually turning it around into something entirely else from which it started.

In the early days, arguably the most pure, it was not so regimented. It was much more organic and flexible (the midnight trance dances at Clifton ... folks getting up at all hours to catch Lekhraj Kirpalani and others). Now it is being transformed into a rhythmic, mechanical device and I think that mechanicalness is anti-spirit. How and when did it enter and from whose influence?

Just a short time ago I was berated by some BK type for suggesting that BKs did not get up at Amrit Vela with the thought of how much inheritance they were earning ... and here we have evidence in the language of exactly that consciousness.

I came into Gyan way before mobile phones and, my god, only now am I considering it!!! In the old days, one could at least escape the clutches of the haridan center-in-charges wanting you to perform some menial task for free for a few hours, by going out for a walk or sitting in the park.

Next, I imagine, they will be able to enable the cameras on everyone BK's phone so that the center-in-charges can look and see what it is any BK is doing at any given time!!! Perhaps even we could suggest they implant electrodes into the brains of BKs that trigger a receptor on the mobile phones, so that any time a BKs has an unacceptable thought, their center-in-charge is automatically sent a text message warning them of such dissidence?

Any they could embed other transistors in the papers the Murlis are printed on (like in new books and supermarket products these days), so that they can track where they have been unofficially distributed to.

What I actually smiled at the most was the 'chelo-chelo (?) ... hurry-hurry ... buy one now, get one free "special offers for few days" and the all important corporate acronyms (SUVAS).

My apologies to any earnest Bharatwasi reading this if it sounds racist but is this not "god on the cheap (GOTC)" for a few rupees more (FRM), typical of the India merchant classes that the BKWSU was set up for and by? A cornershop trader God (CTG) with bulk discounting for the early birds (BDEB).

How do the finances (USD) work out, on an India scale, for owning a GSM phone versus just buying a cheap alarm clock (CAC)? Is "God's" maximum investment return (GMIR) only available for the middle classes that can afford such things (MCTCAST)?

WTF ... FTW.

It is somewhat like the 'buy one get one free' offers that we see at the markets during festivals and off-season sales. :D

Another yukti to enable BKs to take a high jump in spiritual efforts. ;)

But I wonder why his phone number has not been published. It would have enabled many BKs to benefit from this Amrit Vela service. I am sure some PBKs/ex-PBKs would also be interested in this service. Even I would have subscribed for the service had it been free of cost :D.

And, as another aside, what is the privacy policy regarding all the names and phone numbers they are collecting? I wonder if they will be used to raise donations in the future? "Msg ... plz gv us ur $$$ ... u mst giv s $$$ now ... bb wnts ur mn, tn, dn ... rmbr ur 10% for bb"

I just think that folks in India are a bit IT crazy at the moment (it is a growing industry after all), folks there in the BKWSU have never had so many techie gadgets to play with and it looks quite flashy amongst the slums and rural areas.

Nowadays, mobiles have the capacity to show TV. In a few months time, it could be possible watch BapDada online on the mobile instead of on the PC (which they do now), or Raja Yoga youtube videos, whilst the World Cup Final is going on another channel, The Matrix on another channel and Tom and Jerry on the other. Then you will have real difficult choices to make.

Well, if they can put parts of the Murli on the mobile, why not the Murli itself ?

In fact, some mobiles also have email addresses. So the BKWSU when they send emails, can send them direct to your PC or PDA or Blueberry or iphone or mobile etc. You can also forward your own emails to your mobile if your mobile has the capacity to receive emails. Maybe some older models use SMS but emails are in the newer mobiles.

Also, there is also a normal ALARM function in your mobile which can be set to the time you want. Do you need a wake up alarm call on your mobile that already has an alarm function ? Only trying to save money and not give it to mobile operators who already make a lot.

Very, very good point. Why always holding back?

Technically, it would be so easy. A simple text file.

It is religion now. What do you want from them? First of all you have to pass introduction course. Also you have to visit classes without breaks larger than a month.

If you have break larger than a month, without proper reason, you are not a student. Can you imagine? You are not Baba's child any more:).

I think He has a different opinion on that issue. I am just waiting when He will express it. Sooner or later it will be.

Dear shivshankar,

Do you think that the purpose of study and knowledge is to learn to be kind to oneself and others?
