Premanand founded the Federation of Indian Rationalist Associations, which tours the villages of India to educate people by debunking gurus and fakirs.
I think it would be fascinating to hear from this man who has spent his life working directly against woo and pseudoscience in a very real sense.
Unfortunately, at this time, the JREF cannot financially support him coming to the U.S. from India.
We are not taking donations for the fund at this time – only pledges, which are due by March. The goal is $7,000 – not an easy target, i know.
If you can help, feel free to contact Maria here.
You can also find links to video of Premanand in action at that site.
