Holy Development Shit

Holy Development Shit

A couple of days back, the Chief Minister of Kerala, Pinarayi Vijayan who is the leader of CPI(M) went to Sabarimala temple and received prasadam’ from the high priest of the temple. Perhaps, he needed to save his communist ministry with the growing invasion of the Sanghis in the landscape of Kerala. That is understandable. But our super star Suresh[Read More…]

Crime

Crime

No God can punish more
And no God can save.
This walk can only be beautiful
With a determined act of walking
The destination can be empty
But those who walk
Need not feel guilty
For their crime
Of being born as human.

Shankar Guha Niyogi – An Inspiration Of The Third Kind

Shankar Guha Niyogi – An Inspiration Of The Third Kind

Shankar Guha Niyogi was a leader with immense integrity and political purpose-fulness in life. And I am aware that I am not the right person to write about him. But since certain memories haunt me, I feel it may be good to relieve myself by writing about him. The time was 1979-80. My mind was filled with Marxian politics and[Read More…]

The Crisis Of The Educated And Civilised Society In Kerala: From Kamla Surayya To Hadiya

The Crisis Of The Educated And Civilised Society In Kerala: From Kamla Surayya To Hadiya

Well known writer, Kamla Surayya was born in a conservative Nair Hindu family (Nalappat) in 1934. She embraced Islam in 1999 at the Age of 65 and changed her name from Kamla Das to Kamla Surayya. Many conservative Hindu sections became totally contemptuous to her for this behaviour. The Sangh Parivar accusations and attacks on her went on till her[Read More…]

Sharmaji – A Communist Of A Different Order

During the last few decades of my social life I have interacted with three kinds of communists. The first variety belong to those who were inspired, motivated and activated through ideological grounds. This section is fast becoming a rare species in today’s context. There could be a number of reasons for the decline of this community and at this moment,[Read More…]

Mistake

Mistake

Perhaps,
One of the main mistakes of my life
Was that I was born.
But I can assure you,
I could not help it.
I was not responsible.

Face The Music

Face The Music

And after your lightning and thunder
A fresh rain will come
Sprouting new buds and petals
Spreading diverse colours of freedom.
That song I will sing
For the sake of all songs to come!

Rushing through all stations

Time For Left And Secular Forces To Step Forward To Fight Fascism In India

Time For Left And Secular Forces To Step Forward To Fight Fascism In India

The problem with our left and secular forces is that they don’t take the warnings of the communal fascists seriously and respond to such situations in a timely manner’ with consistency’. Before every disaster created by the communal fascists, proper signals are given. But yettimely’ and consistent’ responses are rarely undertaken by the left and secular forces. This is where[Read More…]

Nudity

Then he thought he should have a drink
And all the bars were closed.
They told him ` get married and you will be fine’
Then he just asked them this:
`Will it cover my nudity?’

A Lunatic Is On The Loose !

A Lunatic Is On The Loose !

Now we have heard the whisper again
That India may change
Its no-first use-nuclear policy
It is enough for counter lunatics
To convert sanity into lunacy
To transform the meanings
Of `peace and harmony’.

Silence Of The Graves !

Silence Of The Graves !

And when the dead bodies do not wake up
I keep telling myself
That it is safer to get drunk
On the silence of the graves.

Blowing In The Wind In Vizhinjam – A Music Video In The Making

The extreme southern coastal landscape in India perhaps has been one of the most beautiful regions, despite all human interventions that have taken place so far to destroy it. Strong waves, good beaches connecting hills with coconut trees mark its beauty. This region is also one of the richest aquatic biodiversity. There are twenty wedge banks in the world today,[Read More…]

A Country filled With Anti Nationals!

A Country filled With Anti Nationals!

I thought the Muslims were the only anti nationals in this country. But I was mistaken. Earlier, thousands of people including even women and children who were questioning Koodankulam nuclear plant were declared as anti nationals. They are not the only ones outside the community of Muslims.  Over 11,000 NGOs in India are restricted from FCRA, while the Prime Minister[Read More…]

How A Communist Should Read The CAG Report On Vizhinjam Transit Harbour

How should a socially committed communist react when his or her leaders are working for the capitalists? This seems to be a question for a number of sensitive communists in Kerala. Karl Marx envisaged the restructuring of the control of means of production in the economic process of society where by the the means of production will be controlled by[Read More…]

Between The Buddhists And The Yuddhists

Between The Buddhists And The Yuddhists

Time has come to unite against the Yuddhists in India and Pakistan and to generate a strong public message that the sensational mainstream media, the corrupt army officials, and the politicians with their dwindling power mechanism and shrinking images on both sides do not own the share market of our freedom, peace and harmony. Time has come to isolate the Yuddhists on both sides. If the people across the boundaries can not protect their peace, then who else can?

Will CPM Learn From Its Mistakes In Bengal?

The former Acting Chairman of JN Port, Mumbai, Jose Paul writes: `The shipping ministry has reportedly decided to establish an International Container Transshipment Port at Colachel in Tamil Nadu at an estimated cost of about 27,000 crore.

Maudany, Your Freedom Is Our Freedom!

Sixty nine years of India’s freedom is over now. And fifteen and a half years of Abdul Nasar Maudany as an under trial is over today on August 17, 2016! Perhaps it is time to analyse the implications of both these facts. `When the entire people of this country have food to eat, house to sleep, water to drink, light,[Read More…]

Confusions Of A Patriot

The tender coconut that you once gave me
Was certainly more tasty,
Than a nation you have offered
To keep me alive and to shape a meaning
For your existence than mine!

Blowing In The Wind In Vizhinjam

Blowing In The Wind In Vizhinjam

How many stones should a Vizhinjam Port fill
So that life in the sea will be gone?
How many houses will the project destroy
So that the leaders will look look down with shame?
How many crores will an Adani loot
From taxes of the people of this land?
The answer my friend, is blowing in wind
The answer is blowing in the wind.

Between The Void – A Poem by K.P. Sasi

The pain of birth. A breathing child arrives With the loudest unhappy tears Cursing the entry into this planet Yearning to be where once belonged. The pain of death. Clinging to the last breath Refusing to leave the touch of fresh air Hated at the time of arrival. A last struggle to maintain The life which floated on air. You[Read More…]

10 Questions To Kerala CM On Vizhinjam Harbour Project

How do we evaluate yesterday’s honeymoon meeting between Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and Karan Adani? 1. During the last few days, the news that Adani would step back from Vlizhinjam and that he would go ahead with Colachel Port had given some hopes to activists in Kerala and worries for activists in Tamil Nadu. But with yesterday’s meeting, Karan[Read More…]

20 Questions To LDF Government: Does It Want To Turn Vizhinjam Into A Nandigram And Commit Harakiri?

A wave of the left in Kerala has caught many people by surprise. Perhaps, ten days before the state assembly elections, nobody could predict that the people of Kerala would express such major support to LDF in this manner, though the possible success was predicted by many. What was more welcome was also the list of promises which the LDF[Read More…]

One day
I will open the windows of my dreams
to watch men and women
young and old
hugging and kissing
singing and dancing
without the poison of hatred
and without the guilt
of their silence.
