Dilip Rajeev And His Wikipedia Sockpuppet “White_Adept”:
Despite Wikipedia’s policies regarding Sock Puppetry (which states that a user should have only one account), User:Dilip Rajeev (Talk | Contribs) uses the sockpuppet User:White Adept (Talk | Contribs) on Wikipedia [ “White Adept’s” account has since been deleted (see bottom of page). “White Adept’s” controversial edits on the Sathya Sai Baba Wikipedia Article can be Found Here ].
Before Dilip Rajeev got involved with the Sathya Sai Baba Wikipedia Article, he was contributing and making edits to the ‘Sex Magic’ Wikipedia Article. While discussing the Sex Magic article, “White Adept” asked another Wikipedia editor to contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org (Refs: 01 - 02 ), thus revealing his true identity. Dilip Rajeev also changed the nic “White Adept” to his name (See Diff).
In addition to using the names “Dilip Rajeev” and “WhiteAdept” on Wikipedia, he also made edits under the following IPs (which all resolve to India):
- 184.108.40.206 (used by both “Dilip Rajeev” and “WhiteAdept” and possibly others)
- 220.127.116.11 (used by both “Dilip Rajeev” and “WhiteAdept”)
- 18.104.22.168 (used exclusively by “Dilip Rajeev”)
- 22.214.171.124 (used exclusively by “Dilip Rajeev”)
- 126.96.36.199 (used exclusively by “Dilip Rajeev”)
- 188.8.131.52 (used by “Dilip Rajeev” and possibly others)
Based on Dilip Rajeev’s use of these IPs (90% of which resolve to articles dealing with Kerala, the state in India where Dilip resides), it is strongly indicated he also posted under the name “Valsaraj” and attempted to change this name to “Vidhu” (Refs: 01 - 02). Dilip Rajeev (aka “White Adept”) also posted under the sockpuppet Researcher31 (Refs: 01 - 02). This was revealed when “Researcher31” specifically responded to a post addressed to “White Adept”. When “Researcher31” realized the name “White Adept” did not appear as his signature, he removed the name “Researcher31” from his reply.
Dilip Rajeev’s first edits on the Sathya Sai Baba Wikipedia Article clearly reveal his Anti-Sai antagonism, bias and POV pushing. As a matter of fact, Dilip Rajeev’s first known edit on the Sathya Sai Baba talk page (using his “White_Adept” sockpuppet) was:

White adept (Talk) 19:24, 8 January 2009 (UTC)”
Dilip Rajeev’s first known edit on the Sathya Sai Baba main page (using his “White_Adept” sockpuppet) was:
Dilip Rajeev has subsequently replaced any and all favorable material about Sathya Sai Baba (even material referenced to reliable and reputable sources) with poorly sourced, defamatory and libelous material. Dilip Rajeev even had the audacity to remove all information pertaining to Sathya Sai Baba’s nationally and internationally recognized charitable causes (discussed in numerous newspapers) and removed all official website links from the article. This type of blatant bias has been in place on Wikipedia for years and Dilip Rajeev is even being guided and prompted by Andries Krugers Dagneaux (a caustic critic and defamer of Sai Baba).
Dilip Rajeev even uploaded a purposely distorted picture of Sathya Sai Baba on Wikipedia (with complete impunity). This proves that Wikipedia is unregulated, that information found on Wikipedia may not be credible or accurate and that Wikipedia articles can be taken-over by malicious individuals at any given time:
Dilip Rajeev - Falun Gong / Falun Dafa Cult Member:
Amusingly, Dilip Rajeev is an ardent and fanatic promoter, practitioner and “cult member” of Falun Gong (also known as “Falun Dafa”), which is widely regarded as a “cult” (using the very same standards and arguments that Dilip uses against Sathya Sai Baba). Dilip Rajeev devoted an entire webpage to Falun Dafa on his personal bachtherapy.org domain (Ref), made numerous controversial edits about Falun Gong on Wikipedia and was temporarily banned several times from Wikipedia for “edit warring”, “disruptive editing” and “3RR violations” (Ref). As a matter of fact, Dilip Rajeev made over 3,000 edits on Wikipedia ‘Falun Dafa’ related pages (Ref) and has posted numerous & verbose comments on online forums and groups soliciting the benefits and teachings of Falun Dafa.
Falun Dafa instructs adherents to abide by the principles of truthfulness, compassion and forbearance. The philosophy preaches “cultivation of virtue and character”, “moral standards for different levels” and “salvation of all sentient beings”. Needless to say, Dilip Rajeev’s malicious edits on the Sathya Sai Baba Wikipedia Article show that he is incapable of reconciling his precept with practice.
Dilip Rajeev - Authority On “Sex Magic” And “Black Magic”:
Dilip Rajeev made numerous edits on the Wikipedia article for Sex Magic (Ref) and removed entire sections from the article because he felt that Wikipedians would suffer a “karmic burden” for allowing “black rites” and “black teachings” to be dispersed on Wikipedia. See (Refs: 01 - 02 - 03):
White adept 03:39, 30 June 2006 (UTC)
White adept 04:50, 30 June 2006 (UTC)
Dilip Rajeev also stated that Rajneesh was a “black magician” (Ref).
I wonder what “karmic consequences” Dilip Rajeev will have to face for his defamations, bias and hate on Wikipedia?
Dilip Rajeev - Bach Flower Therapy:
Dilip Rajeev is such a staunch believer and endorser of Bach Flower Therapy, he created his own bachtherapy.org domain soliciting the practice. Some relevant information about Bach Flower Therapy:
A recent database review of randomized trials concluded:
“The hypothesis that flower remedies are associated with effects beyond a placebo response is not supported by data from rigorous clinical trials” (Ref).
All randomized double-blind studies, whether finding for or against the remedies, have suffered from small cohort sizes but the studies using the best methodology were the ones that found no effect over placebo (Ref: 01 - 02). The most likely means of action for flower remedies is as placebos, enhanced by introspection on the patient’s emotional state, or simply being listened to by the practitioner. The act of selecting and taking a remedy may act as a calming ritual.
Dilip Rajeev - Other Interesting Beliefs:
In addition to Dilip Rajeev’s beliefs in Falun Dafa, black magic, black rites, bach flower therapy, sex magic, karmic consequence, etc., he also advocated for the extraterrestrial origins of the Giza Faces and Cydonia Face on Mars (Ref) and stated that he does not believe in evolution (apparently, he is a creationist), does not believe in the fossil record and stated that science is a “decadent religion” and an “evil religion advocating unleashing all animal impulses, destroying one’s conscience and life, demanding a blind allegiance to what it presents to you as ‘truths’...” (Ref). Dilip Rajeev is also a believer and promoter of Gnosticism (which advocates intuitive knowledge over rational or reasoned thought) and has repeatedly referred Wikipedians to gnosis-related websites (Refs: 01 - 02 - 03). This is the type of loon that is dictating content on the Sathya Sai Baba Wikipedia Article.
02-14-09 Update: Dilip Rajeev - The Unfolding Of A Fraud:
After sending Dilip Rajeev the link to this article, he responded by claiming he was a Sai Devotee:
This should be some misunderstanding on your part. The IP “184.108.40.206”, I have looked up and identified to be a shared IP through which all traffic from the ISP BSNL ( wireless connection) is routed. Many of my friends are sai devotees and there have been bhajan conducted in my house as well. The person you encircled is also a sai devotee.
I request you to clarify the misunderstanding with whoever put up the page and kindly take the page down.
Needless to say, more research was conducted and it was soon discovered that Dilip Rajeev widely uses the internet nic “rdilip”. For example, Dilip Rajeev uses the nic “rdilip” on digg.com:
A 24 year-old gentleman from Trivandrum, India (IN) who joined Digg on November 10th, 2008
This information conclusively proves that Dilip Rajeev is not a Sai Devotee and that he is “White Adept”. Dilip Rajeev is a bold-faced liar and a fraud with proof.
Dilip Rajeev - In Conclusion:
Dilip Rajeev is a true believer and a selective critic who pretends to be a skeptic and conscientious objector when it comes to Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. However, Dilip Rajeev is in reality a pathological prevaricator and a gullible, naive and superstitious individual given to very amusing personal beliefs that thoroughly compromise his pseudo-intellectual posturing on Wikipedia.
Although Dilip Rajeev attempted to conceal his identity on Wikipedia, by using the sockpuppet “White_Adept”, he inadvertently disclosed his true identity and is now having to suffer the results of that one oversight. Maybe there is something to that “karma philosophy” after all?
MAJOR UPDATE - Dilip Rajeev Banned For Sockpuppetry On Wikipedia:
A person using the name “drpms” filed a sockpuppetry claim against Dilip Rajeev on Wikipedia on April 30th 2009 (apparently using the information on this page for the complaint) and within 31 hours, the evidence was deemed so overwhelming, Dilip Rajeev was blocked indefinitely from Wikipedia for sockpuppetry (Ref) and so were his known sockpuppets of “White Adept” (Ref) and “Researcher31” (Ref).
All I can say is “Thank Goodness!”
UPDATE - Dilip Rajeev’s Account Reactivated:
Dilip Rajeev fully admitted that he used the sockpuppets “White Adept” and “Researcher31” (Ref) and requested that those accounts be deleted (Refs: 01 - 02), which was granted (effectively removing his “White Adept” sockpuppet name from hundreds of controversial edits on the Sathya Sai Baba Wikipedia article). Dilip Rajeev claimed he wanted to be anonymous on the basis that critics of Sathya Sai Baba are targeted with violence by Sai Devotees! An uttery absurd and ridiculous claim. To Date: Ex-Devotees cannot cite even one credible instance where any critic of Sathya Sai Baba ever met with any type of violence from any Sai Devotee.
