Zhou Enlai

                                                                           Zhou Enlai 

Today,on March 5th  on his 117th birthday we dip our blood in memory of revered comrade premier Zhou En Lai.,one of the greatest revolutionaries the world has ever witnessed. It is not a strange coincidence that Comrade Stalin expired on the same date of March 5th.Zhou En Lai  was a an icon amongst world leaders and played a major role in binding the Peoples Republic of China for 27 years .He was one of the greatest and most progressive statesman of the 2oth century who defended the Socialist foreign policy with an Iron hand whether in 1954 at Bandung ,whether with Nehru in 1962,,or whether in the 1960’s in U.S.S.R.Few Communist leaders ever exhibited such humility and no Communist party leader in China stood in support of Comrade Mao Tse Tung for as long a tenure as Zhou En Lai. Liu Shao-Chi, Deng Xiaoping, Lin Biao, Peng De Huai,Chen Boda etc betrayed Mao but Zhou supported Mao with the strength of steel, traversing the most turbulent of waters.Inspite of originating from a mandarin family Zhou lived the simplest of lifestyles and was inspired by ant-imperialist ideals from his school days. He traversed through the most turbulent of seas or the most hazardous paths in defending his ideas in pre-revolutionary and post-revolutionary China. He never hesitated to self-criticize.

There are 8 parts to this post.I already wrote about the massive protest against the rape of Shahnaz, Arvind memorial seminar in March and the peasant protest  and election gathering in Bhatinda in Punjab .Here   I wished to recollect my most memorable events in India which I have not written about earlier this year.This summary reflects the significant work which is also done outside the C.P.I.(Maoist)camp.Some of the best work has been  done by comrades of the Rahul foundation and Bigul Mazdoor dasta in the trade Union Front.,arguably better than any  revolutionary section in India.True ,they propagate 'new Socialist' Revolution and project India as a capitalist and not semi-feudal.semi-colonial  system but in urban mass work they have taught cadres important lessons.In Punjab outstanding work in the peasant front continues of the Punjab Khet Mazdoor Union and the Bharatiya Kisan Union (Ugrahan).In no part of the country  such organizing of peasant class organizations exists..I am also posting some historic memorial events of the past not posted earlier this year.Not added Operation Bluestar attack and Babri Masjid demolition  as already written about them,earlier this year.I am also posting a response to my obituary on Comrade Sushil Roy by comrades from Vishakapatnam.which is of great significance.on the line and practice of the Maoist party.I request readers to read it ,crtically.Red Salutes to everyone!

I request kasama,people of America and all over the world to offer solidarity to this historic protest which took place yesterday  on December 28th.against this brutal massacre.I hope it radiates a light within the hearts of people,especially women all over the world.This protest is relevant not only to Punjab or India but to the liberation of women all over the world.I rever the work done by the comrades in Punjab who have worked night and day to organize this programme.They have given a lesson in how to wok amongst the working-class in bitter cold conditions.Above all they have illuminated Mao's teaching that 'Women hold up half the sky"I can't express in words the tenacity displayed by Shahnaz to combat the iron feet of oppression and bring the culprits to the book.Her martyrdom is a lesson to the whole world.In every nook and corner of the world Shahnaz's murder  should illuminate a torch to protest against this heinous act and explain the reality  between the opressive capitalist society and the condition of women.I owe great gratitude to Lakhwinder.
