ViCE Scenes from an Indian Scientology Graduation I sang Sonu Nigam songs and was questioned about being a virgin. Parthshri Arora Jun 25 2018, 7:30am Karaoke night at Delhi's Church of Scientology. Image: Scientology Delhi via Facebook I know next to nothing about Scientology, but my interest was piqued when a friend sent me an invitation to a Scientologist graduation ceremony in Delhi. The religion, established by L. Ron Hubbard in 1954, has been making inroads into India’s overcrowded local faith market since 2003. According to news reports from 2012, anywhere between 3,000 to 7,000 Indians have been involved Scientology—according to Abhishekh Kumar, a “junior executive” I spoke with, the number is now over 30,000. snippet: Before the ceremony, we were shown a clip from a game show from Scientology TV, where a host asks a contestant to choose from three curtains: One, “has more alcohol than he can consume”; another has “amazing drugs”; and a third offers “family and self respect.” snippet: As the crowd trickled out around 8 PM, I struck up a conversation with 26-year-old Ankit Singh, who was getting ready to take off on his Bullet for Faridabad. I asked him which courses he liked, and he shot back, “Yaar, tum joint karte ho? Tumhaari aankhon se lagta hai tumhaara dil toota hai. Kya tum virgin ho?” [Do you smoke up? You look like you’re heartbroken. Are you a virgin?] I told him no, I’m a writer, which was, in hindsight, a peculiar reflex. https://www.vice.com/en_in/article/evkw3k/scenes-from-an-indian-scientology-graduation what no Wheel of Fish on Sci TV?
