Communism and Women

Avishek Sahu
December 31, 2015

“But you Communists would introduce community of women, screams the whole bourgeoisie in chorus. The bourgeois sees in his wife a mere instrument of production. He hears that the instruments of production are to be exploited in common, and, naturally, can come to no other conclusion than that the lot of being common to all will likewise fall to the women. He … Read the rest

I am Left and You are Wrong—Indeed!

December 30, 2015

This is a response to an article published at the following link: http://indiafacts.org/i-am-left-and-you-are-wrong/

 

It may not behoove a liberal to respond specifically to an item that counters his views. But there is a piquing aspect about this item, which is that it is written in good prose, in fact, in very good prose—the kind of dancing prose that you associate with evolved journalistic writing. So the author readily merits

A Hindu Pakistan

Avishek Sahu
December 28, 2015
A Hindu Pakistan is still a Pakistan. Why is it that two countries that were formed at the same time went such different ways–different ways not in terms of GDP or Microsoft’s blessings, but in terms of robustness of Civil Society? That’s because the essential fabric of Indian Society–protected by the Judiciary–is dictated by Hindu principles of fairness, freedom, equality of justice; and Pakistani Political Society rejected these principles, for … Read the rest

On Hinduism…

Avishek Sahu
December 28, 2015
The western world has always had an eye on India– to be precise, it has always had an evil eye on India. The reason is not hard to imagine: it has been proven in many ways that this is a somewhat magical land that holds gargantuan possibilities. The western world has invaded India time and again, but this land has survived, time and again, not because it is a cradle

On the Juvenile Justice Bill

Juvenile Justice

Hey little retard, why you roaming alone on the streets
Don’t you have a Papa, someone to teach you the right beats
Oh No, never seen no one to call my folks,
I was born here, raised here, to tend to the wild yolks
Whom do you call Dad then, when you need some grub to feed your madness

Brain Drain

Hey you little slimy fuck,
nurtured to the hilt on the taxpayers buck,
Know that I’d spend it again on you,
if you don’t get it still, go out and wait for the cue
Yeah, nous is not just for me to feast on,
that’s something the sweet wild world turns on,

Oh Turkey, Oh Dear…!!

Avishek Sahu
December 26, 2015

Came across this poem ‘Point of View‘ by Shel Silverstein. While I truly respect Vegetarianism, couldn’t help framing a heart-felt response to celebrate good-old Non-Vegetarianism!

My heartfelt response:

The Point of Stew

Oh turkey, oh dear, how you enjoy swirling in the beer,
Then forming my blood, my nerves, and my flesh,
When I yearn for some mojo to go with my psychic mesh,
Yeah, I won’t be

I worship my parents; Do you?!

Avishek Sahu
December 23, 2015

Yes; you shouldn’t if you are against the protectionist instincts of Communists. How can you worship your parents when their whole life is dedicated to protecting your interests. Yes, they should have left you an abject capitalist from the very start.

In Support Of Communism!!

Avishek Sahu
December 23, 2015

There are so many lies about communism; it is scary. The biggest lie as propagated by Karan Thappar in an early interview is that Communists seek a dictatorship of the proletariat. How absurd! Marxism never propagated the dictatorship of the proletariat. Marxism propagated ‘Democratic Supremacy’ of the proletariat. That is true, and ‘Democracy’ is the important word here. The biggest fear of the middle-class is that the farmers will kick

Dear TRAI. Ban this shit now. Because we already know that Hilary is all there is and Bernie Sanders doesn’t exist. For we already know that Americans were born to save the world. For we already know that Trump is rich but a little silly so we should all support Hilary. … Read the rest

Salman Khan: The Right Wing’s Biggest Trump Card

Avishek Sahu
December 23, 2015

The strategy is simple and the fear is well placed:

The Executive understands that India has retained its dignity as the World’s oldest true democracy not because of the Executive, but in spite of the executive. It understands that in India parliament is NOT supreme; in India, the Constitution is supreme. That creates grave problems for its nefarious designs and renders the Judiciary–the protectors of the constitution–its biggest enemy. So … Read the rest

Juveniles in a capitalist catch!

Avishek Sahu
December 23, 2015

Oh, about the new juvenile justice bill the parliament so easily passed:

What about an abandoned child who grows up on the streets, stumbles into pettiness and probably gets sodomized in the process. If he gets into crime at 16-18 yrs of age, his pathos and his crime are entirely the state’s responsibility–he is not yet an adult, at which point he would be entitled to a share in the … Read the rest
