Once upon a time, there was a democratic country called HAM HAM. Democrats called Bacon ruled the country. With the passage of time, the Bacon party lost in the elections to a party which was far right and fundamentalist –called Salmon. Members of the Salmon party started persecuting people who formed a religious minority. There were two minorities—one being followers of the BOOK and the other being followers of the PROPHET. Often members of the Salmon party paraded evangelists, pastors and apostles naked on the street. They also did a dastardly deed of burning a Missionary alive with his children. The members of the Salmon party won a landslide victory by rigging the Electronic Voter Machines. Now they are planning to change the constitution of the Country. The followers of the BOOK and the Prophet will be persecuted and thrown out under their regime. The coming to power by the Salmon party shows that democracy has been defeated.
Kerala, God’s Own Country is a home for a flock of communist sheep. I was once an ardent follower. For many youth of Kerala, Che Guevara was an iconic figure. As I write this narrative, I feel a tinge of regret. Communism is a dead corpse. It has a bankrupt ideology. India is a galloping horse as far as Capitalism is concerned. The top echelons of the part like the Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan have themselves and their kith and Kin studying in international universities abroad have also bathed in the waters of lucrative businesses. Communism is a disguised capitalist cosmetic. Communism in Kerala benefits the rich few and marginalizes large number of its followers. Communism in Kerala is a social and political Dracula having its blood hungry fangs to impoverish its followers.
BJP is the ruling government of India a pro Hindu party. They are famous for religious intolerance and casting a net of anti-secularism. They demonetized the economy by bringing new currency notes. It is palpable that these hooligans started collecting money from the press to satisfy their greed. The top echelons of the party are immensely wealthy. BJP is a govt. that has fallen short of ideals.
Once upon a time, I had communist views and I believed that communism will establish a just society based on equality and social justice. My dream has turned stale and sour. The top leaders of the Communist and their cronies and kith and kin are clinching new business deals and the party has become corporate making a fool of followers. Communism in Kerala has become an opportunistic capitalistic beast with callous regard to social ideals.
Kerala, the Southern State of India is famous for daily lotteries as well as Bumper Draws. They say that the Lottery is not rigged and it’s a machine (probably a computer) that draws the prize. What baffles me is that there occur no top end winnings in my locality. There occur only bottom order prizes. Usually the first and second prizes fall in the citadel place of the left front communist govt. of Kerala. Do I have to come to the conclusion that prizes are rigged? Yes, I carry the fear of doubt with me.
We all know the story of Isaac, Abraham’s son. God wanted to test Abraham and asked him to take him to Moriah hills and sacrifice him. When he was about to sacrifice him, God said: ‘don’t: sacrifice the ram who has entangled its horns in the thicket’. As an idiom Isaac means being severely tested. Rahul Gandhi is an Isaac who will emerge victorious in the next elections and will become the Prime Minister of India in 2019. I hope the Isaac that I encounter in my life will be positive.
Karl Marx predicted that the workers will unite the world and by revolution pave the way for a new society based on equality and social justice. But instead of that happening, Communism fell into ruins and the Soviet Union and East Germany collapsed and led to the establishment of capitalism. As an idiom Marx died means a prophecy which cannot be fulfilled. Time will tell whether Marx died in the world. The prophecies in the Book of Revelation do not carry Marx’s Death.
