Oscar Wild Quote

“An idea that is not dangerous is unworthy of being called an idea at all.” – Oscar Wilde (Irish Poet)


Joke of the day

August 6, 2007

Joke of the Day

If everything works out as planned, the Naxals will be uprooted in a month or two
Malnad Hyenas a.k.a Anti-Naxal force of Karnataka in this news report

First on reading that statement my instant reaction was to yawn
but then after a while when the absurdity of the statement sunk in
I began to laugh hysterically.

It is always good to laugh early in the morning… it keeps you healthy
by releasing endorphins which are good for your body and also boost
your immune system.

If the Malnad hyenas keep cracking such jokes everyday then we will all remain
healthy for a long time to come, laughter after all is the best medicine.

Laughing Malnad Hyenas – Laughing at themselves ?

True to their hyena nature they make us all laugh.. but that must not make
us forget that they are half mad… and in fits of extreme madness they are
know to even kill their own members to cover up their crimes ,like they
did recently in Agumbe where they murdered their
own colleague PSI Venkatesh…

Maybe this was done because Venkatesh was planning to expose
his seniors who masterminded the massacre of 5 civilians recently ?
We will never know…

It is only on rare occasions that they kill each other while most of the time
they prefer to gang up on social workers, civilians and murder them
ruthlessly for which their masters award them medals.

Its like a dog show… where the dog which performs the most
number of tricks and the best tricks wins medals.

The only difference here is that here the performers are
hyenas and the criteria is how many social workers you kill.

This year my favorite to win a medal is Shankar bidri the officer
who released the Naxal Sympathiser Merit List (Provisional)
in Karnataka .It was withdrawn after people realised what a joke
it was and now a updated final list is expected by the ‘
end of this year.

One such hyena who killed Comrade Saketh Rajan
and was awarded a Presidents medal for it
is currently rotting in jail for beating his wife
unconscious because she refused to polish his shoes !

A year ago we heard similiar statements from Mahendra Karma
the notorious butcher of bastar who has masterminded
dozens of massacres of tribals and is the chief planner of
Salwa Judum(State Sponsored terror campaign )

In May 2006, he told Tehelka in an interview that Salva Judum
would be able to finish the Naxals by June 2006.Interview

Now it is June 2007 , far from finishing off the naxalites the
civil war in chhattisgarh has reached epic proportions and
threatens to engulf the whole country slowly but surely.

For the last 40 years , ruling class tyrants, their lackeys and
their ever growing in number of faithful hyenas have
been saying that they will finish of the naxalites in two months.

Its the same every two months you ask them…
We will finish the naxalites
in two months … in two months ….. two months..

A whole generation of journalists and readers have
lived and died writing and reading about unnamed
sources in the police and intelligence department
claiming the movement will be finished in two months.

The problem with these fools is that they think killing
people kills the movement.

They are unable to discriminate between
Naxalism- The idea and Naxalite- The upholder of that Idea.

They have murdered more 10,000 supporters of this idea
in the last 40 years but have yet to make a
single dent on the idea itself.

Marxist-Leninist-Maoist theory is what forms the core of Naxalism.

It is not just a idea… it is the idea
and a very dangerous one too.

Dangerous because it asks uncomfortable questions
that long enslaved masses have forgotten to ask.
It makes people think for themselves.

History has shown us that you can kill people
but you can never kill ideas.

For Ideas live on , evolving ,spreading, learning
from their shortcomings and taking root in
new minds and bodies.

Naxalism is one such idea whose time has come.

It has to be taken to its legitimate conclusion in
the coming years manifesting itself in every
single nook and corner of the country..

As for killing Naxalite Revolutionaries.. .go on… go ahead
and try and kill them all , just don’t be surprised when you
find 10 in the place of every single one that you kill.


Whenever there is decay in truth.. Wherever injustice prevails
Wherever the humiliation of humanity ensures
A naxalite is born again and again.

Bob Avakian Quote

August 1, 2007

“In a world marked by profound class divisions and social inequality, to talk about “democracy”— without talking about the class nature of that democracy and which class it serves—is meaningless, and worse. So long as society is divided into classes, there can be no “democracy for all”: one class or another will rule, and it will uphold and promote that kind of democracy which serves its interests and goals. The question is: which class will rule and whether its rule, and its system of democracy, will serve the continuation, or the eventual abolition, of class divisions and the corresponding relations of exploitation, oppression and inequality.”

.-(from a judgement by Justice A.N. Mullab in Allababad High Court.)

by the people of India.It means the demons in Khaki coloured clothing)

Today we feel these cops are terrorists inside our colonies. Now I am worried they may start harassing us.An ordinary Indian citizen


These are not the words of a naxalite or a maoist sympathiser but those of
an ordinary citizen from India.She echoes the sentiments of millions of
Indians who have finally began to realize who the
real terrorists are in this country.

Verrier Elwin on poverty and exploitation of Adivasi’s in Bastar

April 23, 2007

Verrier Elwin (1902 – 1964) was educated in Oxford university and came to India in 1927 as a christian missionary.He ended up marrying a Gondi (name of a tribe) woman and adopting
tribal customs and totally renounced Christianity.The following is an extract from one of his books where he tries to put into words the poverty and exploitation of the adivasis of bastar.

We are so used to poverty in India we forget what it is. I remember one day a family coming to us in tears. for their hut and all they possessed had been destroyed by fire. When I asked how much they wanted to put them on their feet again they said, ‘four rupees’ – the price of a single copy of Brave New World.( A magazine read widely by the bourgeoisie)

That is poverty.

In Bastar state once ,a Maria was condemned to death and on the eve of execution they asked him if there any luxury he would like.He asked for some chapatti and fish curry, made after the city style.They gave it to him and he ate half of it with great enjoyment ,then wrapped the remainder up in the leaf plate and gave it to the jailor, telling him that his little son was waiting outside the prison door.The boy had never tasted such a delicacy and he should have it now.

That is poverty.

Poverty is to see little children taken from you at the height of their beauty
It is to see your wife age quickly and your mother’s back bend below the load of life.It is to be defenseless against arrogant official, to stand unarmed before exploiters and the cheats.

Poverty is to stand for hours before the gate of the court of justice and to be refused admission.It is to find officialdom deaf and the great and wealthy blind.

I have seen children fighting over a scanty meal of roasted rat.I have seen old women pounding wearily at the pith of the sago palm to make a kind of flour.I have watched men climb trees to get red ants to serve instead of chillies.

Poverty is hunger ,frustration,bereavement,futility.
There is nothing beautiful about it.

– Verrier Elwin

Bhagat Singh Quotes

bhagat singh poster cenentary

Let us declare that the state of war does exist and shall exist so long as the Indian toiling masses and the natural resources are being exploited by a handful of parasites. They may be purely British Capitalist or mixed British and Indian or even purely Indian. They may be carrying on their insidious exploitation through mixed or even on purely Indian bureaucratic apparatus. All these things make no difference. “…..The war neither began with us nor is it going to end with our lives.”

– Comrade Bhagat Singh

Shocking but true quotes from the establishment

January 12, 2007

“Yes. I want to become a Maoist if this is the model of development. But I can’t at this age.“-V.P Singh (Former Prime Minister of India)

“I have no hesitation in saying that many of them are highly motivated.They are convinced that they are fighting for a cause. They are far better than the criminals who have managed to infiltrate assemblies and Parliament and even become ministers. “-Prakash Singh (Former Director-General of BSF.)

“The Maoist movement is a symbol of the divide between rural and urban India. The movement cannot be solved by police action at all. There could be a time when they (Maoists) could overrun urban citadels,” – M K Dhar (Former Joint Director of Intelligence Bureau) predicting that Maoists are soon going to capture entire cities.

“Hang corrupt people in public” – Supreme Court gives thumbs up to Jan Adalats (Maoist Judicial System)

“Dalits must be armed” – R R Patil (Hypocrite Home minister of Maharashtra) admits arming the oppressed masses is the only way forward.

“Every five years, it is the masses who determine who will form the government. And in between those five years the classes determine what that government will do. “- Mani Shankar Iyer (Minister for Panchayati Raj ) exposing the UPA government.

This statement of Mani Shankar is nothing new… the maoists have been shouting themselves hoarse for the last 40 years that this independence is a sham.

Chairman Mao quote on Arduous Struggle

December 26, 2006

Chairman Mao quote on Arduous Struggle

There is an ancient Chinese fable called “The Foolish Old Man Who Removed the Mountains”. It tells of an old man who lived in northern China long, long ago and was known as the Foolish Old Man of North Mountain. His house faced south and beyond his doorway stood the two great peaks, Taihang and Wangwu, obstructing the way.With great determination, he led his sons in digging up these mountains hoe in hand.

Another graybeard, known as the Wise Old Man, saw them and said derisively, “How silly of you to do this! It is quite impossible for you few to dig up these two huge mountains.” The Foolish Old Man replied, “When I die, my sons will carry on; when they die, there will be my grandsons, and then their sons and grandsons, and so on to infinity. High as they are, the mountains cannot grow any higher and with every bit we dig, they will be that much lower. Why can’t we clear them away?”

Having refuted the Wise Old Man’s wrong view, he went on digging every day, unshaken in his conviction. This moved God, and he sent down two angels, who carried the mountains away on their backs. Today, two big mountains lie like a dead weight on the Chinese people. One is imperialism and the other is feudalism. The Chinese Communist Party has long made up its mind to dig them up. We must persevere and work unceasingly, and we, too, will touch God’s heart. Our God is none other than the masses of the Chinese people. If they stand up and dig together with us, why can’t these two mountains be cleared away? – Chairman Mao

Chairman Mao quote on women

December 23, 2006

Chairman Mao quote on women

A man in China is usually subjected to the domination of three systems of authority [political authority, family authority and religious authority]…. As for women, in addition to being dominated by these three systems of authority, they are also dominated by the men (the authority of the husband). These four authorities – political, family, religious and masculine – are the embodiment of the whole feudal-patriarchal ideology and system, and are the four thick ropes binding the Chinese people, particularly the peasants.
Chariman Mao
“Report on an Investigation of the Peasant Movement in Hunan” (March 1927), Selected Works, Vol. I, pp. 44-46.
