Bhagat Singh was an outstanding revolutionary activist and thinker who sacrificed his life in the Independence movement at only 23 years of age. Having taken birth in a revolutionary family from Punjab, Bhagat Singh devoted his life from his early teens for the struggle to build a free, egalitarian and secular India. During his honest endeavour to achieve that aim he embraced the scientific thought of revolution. It was bound to attract enmity not only from the British Raj, but also from the comprador section of the Indian population. Lenin once said, “During the lifetime of great revolutionaries, the oppressing…

The birth centenary of renowned Marxist philosopher Com. Debiprasad Chattapadhayya was observed in last year. The communist movement in India will be indebted to him forever for his remarkable contribution in studies of Indian philosophy and Indian history. Unfortunately, till this date the communist movement could not realize proper importance of his works. A handful of articles on this path-breaking philosopher which have already appeared on the occasion of his birth centenary are mostly ordinary in nature. One can find nothing there except only ritualistic approach. One of the reasons behind this unfortunate fact is the communist movement of our…

The 2019 General Election for the 17thLok Sabha is taking place at hitherto most critical juncture in the post-1947 history of our country. In the past, a serious challenge to Indian polity was faced when Indira regime had declared internal emergency and suppressed dissent autocratically. But she was compelled to declare elections in 1977 following growing people’s resistance to her emergency rule. In spite of favourable intelligence and media reports, Congress was routed out by the silent suffering majority of the deprived people. Present situation is much more dangerous. The RSS parivar is making all out efforts to retain power…

As Modi’s rule has reached its fag end, we are witnessing now is the latest malicious move to withhold the release of official data prepared by government’s own statistical machineries. The most conspicuous has been the ban imposed on publishing the NSSO’s 2017-18 data on employment. Modi came to power in 2014 with a promise of creating additional two crore jobs per year. But according to the NSSO survey, the details of which are leaked out on March 20, 2019, instead of the creation of two crore new jobs per annum, the country has been losing one crore jobs per…

Manufacturing jobs actually fell in absolute terms from 58.9 million in 2011-12 to 48.3 million in 2015-16. Economists have been writing for some months that, contrary to the claims of the government, there is plenty of data available that shows unmistakably that unemployment is high and rising. Educated unemployment has worsened just as young people are getting better educated, and expect to work outside agriculture in industry and services. We have done this on the strength of analysis of household surveys – Annual Survey, Labour Bureau (LB) 2015-16 – with a sample size the same or larger than the five-yearly…

Speech at the First All Russian Congress of Working Women, November 19, 1918 Comrades, in a certain sense this Congress of the women’s section of the workers’ army has a special significance, because one of the hardest things in every country has been to stir the women into action. There can be no socialist revolution unless very many working women take a big part in it. In all civilised countries, even the most advanced, women are actually no more than domestic slaves. Women do not enjoy full equality in any capitalist state, not even in the freest of republics. One…

When Engels left Paris after a short staying of only ten days with Marx at the end of August, 1844, he finished his portion of the book they planned. It was The Holy Family, first joint work of Karl Marx and Frederick Engels, where the duo first time jointly declared their final departure from the circle of the Young Hegelians. Thus a new ideology was announced for the emancipation of humanity. Soon after the death of Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel on 1831, his followers were divided in two opposite sects, namely The Orthodox Hegelians and The Young Hegelians. They were…

The Communist movement in India has a history of almost a century after the salvos of October Revolution in Russia brought Marxism-Leninism to the people of India who were engaged in the national liberation struggle against the British colonialists. It is a complex and chequered history.
