Asaram Bapu's rise and downfall


After it was taken to court, journalist Ushinor Majumdar’s book God of Sin (Penguin India), which details the rise and fall of convicted godman Asaram Bapu, was recently cleared for publication. Majumdar spoke to Firstpost about his research, the reason Asaram’s clout grew undeterred, the pressures of working as an investigative journalist and what the downfall of self-proclaimed godmen in recent times might suggest for the future.
