(This is a commentary written by GK Viswanatham
in response to certain comments appeared in the CHAT
COLUMN.  The author of original comments in
the Chat Column has since withdrawn the 
comments. Hence we are not
publishing the original comments 
in question here for the information of readers.

2. The 'PS' published below again is in reply to comments
by a person which we have not published on the main page. 
Hence his name is also not mentioned. It was open to
Shri GK Viswanatham to write the reply in the
chat column itself.)

Power corrupts, leaders 
of left, right or centre 
are no exception 
without the quality 
of renouncement. 


Of all isms, communism is a failure for the time being. In any case, the theory, propounded by Marx/Engels, if I am told properly, by the stalwarts in the movement correctly, is a sort of inexorable evolving process in a developing, deepening and worsening crisis, as remedy. 

Only in such a situation of crises, Communism, replaces rule of law as a result of people's inevitable choice, but not as a majoritarian option. Instead of leaving such a classic theory to time and crisis factor, human intervention happened to impose the same by few leaders, great, they might be, with majority following, when the system was not ready to absorb or adopt because there was, significant minority who did not invite the system. Thereafter, indoctrination also was incomplete. Indoctrination is a misnomer. Nobody can impose one's will on the other, without being able to convince completely. The result was, people who were forced to accept the new dispensation, waited to revolt which was what had happened in erstwhile USSR. Taking a lesson out of this reversal and to obviate such blow to their rule, communist China, adopted capitalism in part and in pockets of geographical China including newly owned Hon Kong.

Man is the wisest beast. Unless his mind accepts no system can have existence and the mind varies from man to man and therefore, unless a man made or system made common catastrophe befalls on the humanity like a crisis, there will not be any modicum of common approach to face, much-less evolve alternative system. Our own pensioner class is a living example that despite, common burning issue of up gradation of pensions, is there any trace of Unity?

Religion as a divine tool to identify man with God or the creator, cannot be set aside by human endeavour is the lesson to the authors and practitioners of left theories which are essentially inherent in any religion and are not new findings. Sincerity of course, is a must in religion also.

These are some of my thoughts on the chat column comments. No intention at all, to belittle anybody or belief system.

P.S.   By the way, I am not only not averse to AIIEA but ardent admirer of its leadership and their brilliance during the days of COMs. BOSE, SAROJ, SUNIL and SUNDARAM, having worked with them in close proximity for nearly a decade and half, as one of the divisional leaders of AIIEA. I stopped agreeing with the practice of left ideology following new acquisition of Vedantic knowledge.
