While the world celebrated raksha bandhan, Sadhguru tweeted a message that left desis online quite perplexed. Here’s what he had to say-
#RakshaBandhan is a promise to protect the Feminine – not because of Fragility but for the value of Fragrance. –Sg

All've Fragrance.Not Only Feminine but every undue "Oppressed Gender". Although in ancient times It started as Brother-Sister Festival but in modern world it should not be limited to Only Feminine. Protect every Genuine Person who need it.Make Every one feel safer by protecting.

And what does he mean by the value of fragrance, anyway! Sounds weird, no?

Sadhguru is also venturing into the perfume industry. Check out his first fragrance – protect the feminine (for women). Notes of bullshit, peppered with delusion. https://t.co/qhGPAbkjYK

Chapter 3: How to sugarcoat your inherent misogyny
A. Make an all encompassing statement on protecting women
B. Announce that women are fragile
C. Follow it up with a stupid and patronising wordplay meaning nothing https://t.co/ajWKO2wrm9

Sir, do you grow your poppies in-house or do you procure them? Mighty good stuff you have.

Feminine is not same as fragility.
Matlab jo angrezi ka naya word dhyan me aya usse bina sar pair ka ek sentence bana ke post kar do bas.. Kaam dham to hai nahi kuch.

Take any #SadhguruQuote, put each word in a tumbler, shake and remove the words randomly, one at a time, to make a sentence. It will make as much sense as the first one.
