New Delhi: India is a land where people have enormous faith in  God. But as described in a bollywood movie ‘Oh My God' how some self styled Godman try to use this faith of common people for their own benefit is surprising indeed.

The latest is Sant Rampal, the godman from Haryana, who was arrested by Police for defying the orders of  Haryana High court

This is the story of how a government engineer became a spiritual guru with thousands following him blindly.
 
Sant Rampal had a very humble background. The ‘godman' was born Rampal Dass to a family of farmers in Sonepat district's Thanana village on September 8, 1951.

After school, he got a diploma in engineering and joined Haryana government's irrigation and public health department as a junior engineer.
