Social Media Sentiment:Baba Ramdev and Delhi Police

People love to express themselves .They love to showcase themselves as opinion leader and that is the reason behind “Nukkadbazi”or “Addebazi”. Since my childhood days I have been participated in Nukkad/pantry conversations actively. These places are now replaced by Face book, blog and Twitter.

On 5th June 2011, some of the trending keywords for Twitter in India were:

  1. Delhi Police
  2. Dehradun
  3. Jallianwala Bagh

Need not to say these keywords are related to the “Baba Ramdev’s crusade against black money. When we check Google Trend for Baba Ramdev the above hypothesis gets some support.


Sentiments of Twitter users are against the police action against Baba and some of them are comparing the act with “Jalianwala Bagh Massacre”.
