Images of self-styled godwoman Radhe Maa, alias Param Shradhey Shri Radhe Maa, in a miniskirt have been doing the rounds of social media, leading to memes and trolls galore.

The images depicted Radhe Maa aka Sukhvinder Kaur lounging on a red sofa and generally hanging out and posing for photos. And there’s apparently a video of her dancing to a Bollywood number.

In Odisha, 48-year-old spiritual guru Sarathi Baba has been in the news for all the wrong reasons after a TV news channel reported he was allegedly caught staying with a 21-year-old woman in a hotel in Hyderabad.

A group of people also protested outside the Baba’s ashram in Kendrapada after photos on social media sites showed him wearing T-shirts and jeans.

'Godwoman' Radhe Maa and 'godman' Sarathi Baba have joined a list of folks caught doing things they shouldn’t have. Modern-day babas continue to attract a huge following and sooner or later these self-styled gurus end up making headlines for all the wrong reasons.
