New Delhi, Jan 4, 2020-
Puducherry Lt Governor Kiran Bedi, a former IPS officer, became the butt of Twitterati jokes on Saturday after she tweeted that NASA recording of the sound of sun was in fact ‘Om’ chant. She wrote at @thekiranbedi: “NASA recorded sound of sun — Sun chants Om.”
The post got 5.6K retweets and 17.7K likes, and as many as 472.6K views.
One user remarked: “Wrong. The Sun said NaMo NaMo. You should’ve checked the UNESCO version along with the NASA version.”
A post read: “And we thought you were intelligent.”
One user posted a picture of Kiran Bedi with Sadhguru Jaggi who was trolled a few days ago after he posted his support on Citizenship Amendment Act. He commented: “This picture can be provided.”
A Twitter user reminded the former bureaucrat about the Indian Constitution’s Fundamental Duties (Article 51A) that says that it shall be the duty of every citizens of India to develop scientific temper, humanism and the spirit of inquiry and reform.
Another wondered aloud: “We don’t know how you cleared the Civil Services exams. We are ashamed….”
A user posted a clip of a well known stand-up comic who talked about the celestial hum which many claim to be Om chant.
A post read: “I consider this tweet by you as one of the best jokes of the millennium. The saffron brigade is successful in brainwashing learned people like you.”
One user commented: “Once upon a time this lady was a hero to many. What a disgrace now!”
