Baba is a colloquial term used to represent certain classes of Indian Saints. Babas transcend the boundaries of religion and root-canal their ideas in mathematically normalized Vedic philosophy. Since the Big Bang till this day only 12½ babas were born with awesome powers to save the mankind from axioms of evil. It is said that [Why question beliefs?] it is the same soul manifesting itself in different forms at different times to be born as a baba. However, this belief has been questioned by the historians [They have the right to.] as they found out evidences pointing to few babas being contemporaries of each other.
Origin of the Term "Baba"
The term Baba has not originated from Sanskrit. Instead it is a metaphorical reference to the tale told through the philosophical poetry "Ba Ba black sheep, Have you any wool?". It is interesting to note that the philosophical dogma of being socially outcast as a black sheep holds a common background for all the 12½ babas, or their incarnations.
Some historians argue that Baba is a distant derivative of the word "Kung Fu" but they have not yet been able to put forth any solid evidence confirming the same.

The 1st Baba and the Seeds of a Movement
In the year 2501 B.C. (or may be 2500 BC) the first baba, a black sheep named Mr. Ba Ba, laid the foundation of a movement popularly known as "rebel without a cause". This movement was so intense that years later, the term "Black Sheep" was introduced as a phrase in the English language.
The Middle Ages
An 11th Century poet once mused, "Mr.Ba Ba's got back." Indeed, he would come to be known for far more than his "back." Since the beginning of his tyrannical reign in 2500 B.C., Mr.Ba Ba was known the world over for his exceptional wool coat, his willingess to be herded, and his uncanny grazing abilities. In the year 1250 A.D., Mr.Ba Ba was given his first son "Babaganoush Ba Ba," by his then-wife Grandma Moses. However, things would not remain so peaceful for Mr.Ba Ba: in 1251, his kingdom in Crenshaw Heights, CA was used as the setting for the big-budget blockbuster "The Land Before Time IV: When is it Going to be Time Already?" starring Aretha Franklin and Eli Manning.
