Controversy seems to be a constant companion for rape accused godman Nithyananda.
In a slew of videos that are doing the rounds on social media, the godman struck again. Undergoing something of an image makeover, what with rape accusations against him, the godman speaks of enlightenment of the very easily understandable kind – you know, making animals talk and disproving Einstein’s theory of relativity.
Viral videos from the ashram of the self-styled godman show him sitting on a throne of silver and professing wisdom to his followers. And during these rambling sessions, he is also occasionally seen drinking out of a coffee mug with his own face printed on it – talk about personal branding!
I know it is beyond Science but our Desi Scientist Nityananda will soon release a software which will enable cows and Bulls to talk to you very clearly in Sanskrit & Tamil.@NASA are you Watching? ?️ pic.twitter.com/drSvexCrLr— Zubair (@zoo_bear) September 17, 2018
In one video, Nithyananda vows to initiate “monkeys and other few animals” into a super-conscious breakthrough, thereby making them... talk.
Even as one wonders if he was super-conscious when he came up with the idea, he elaborates, “They will grow these organs and I will establish it, prove it through a scientific medical test and researchers.”
He says that he has already ‘casually tested’ the animal vocal chord software and that it was working perfectly, and for eager animal conversationalists, the wait would not be a long one. For he says that he would establish it in a year’s time.
Although, with a non-bailable warrant against him for rape charges, his counsel may need to request laboratory facilities in his prison cell, if Nithyananda hopes to keep his promise to his followers.
In the meantime, his followers can also learn Sanskrit and Tamil since these are the only two languages that the animals will be speaking in, according to him.
Almost teasing the audiences to doubt their own sanity, Nithyananda goes on to say, “I will develop a phonetic, linguistic, capable vocal chords for monkeys, lions, and tigers.”
There are cued drum beats that ring in the background, as the audience claps.
In yet another video, Nithyananda boldly challenges the scientific community the world over, rubbishing the mass-energy equivalence.
In a line that has particularly been picked up by Tamil social media, Nithyananda asks, “What is matter?”
Deducing his own equation, he comes to the conclusion that e is not equal to mc square but, rather, e is equal to the difference between ‘intensity’ and ‘continuity’.
While making his calculations, the godman also says that the equation is interpreted differently by the crooked brain of a non-vegetarian person and a ‘stable’ vegetarian brain.

One Facebook user commented, "Perfect example of "Tu heading bata, baki mein likh lunga (you tell me the headline, I will write the rest)".
Another wrote, "That awkward moment you have to present a lecture on Mass-Energy equivalence but you have no clue about 3rd grade science."
