Naxalism : This PARALLEL government is justifiably democratic as it instills a feeling of by the people, from the people, of the people.



Ramlal, the commoner is an enthusiastic reader. About a day back he came across an article written by Nobel winning economist Dr Amrtya Sen. Dr Sen in his article suggests that the greatest find and invention of the twentieth century is mankind’s consensus on the notion that among all systems of government that there are, democracy is the best and most useful for it.

Dr. Sen believes that democracy is a far important & useful find than man’s stepping on the moon, flying machines, computer and other scientific inventions. The democratic system with all its faults is better than all other systems of government; India’s biggest achievement being that since winning freedom from British rule on 15th August 1947 governments in India have changed through the ballot. (Obviously with hard-to-erase blot of emergency)



Ramalal, the commoner like Dr. Sen is devoted to concept of democracy. All he knows about democracy is that it is a form of government that is by the people, of the people and for the people.

He voted for a PARALLEL GOVERNMENT which is of him, for him & by him. Today his PARALLEL government functions in approx. 180 districts spread across 9 Indian states. Government of India has given it a all different names & colors; e.g Naxalism, Red corridor, Internal Terrorism, single largest threat to Indian state etc



But for RAMLAL (just like Dr. Sen would suggest) it’s a hard fought success & like any other state in the world every statesman of this region is ready to die for their right to democracy.

PARALLEL government’s slogan is, “jal, jungle, zameen hamara hai” (water, forest and land is ours). Understandably, this demand is just. 


This parallel government has distributed and granted of right of ownership of farm land to the tillers who are its real owners. DO YOU FIND THIS UNJUST OR UNDEMOCRATIC?

This parallel government has distributed Natural resources of forest lands to the dwellers. DO YOU FIND ANYTHIGN UNMERITED IN THIS?

This parallel government has given Right of self governance & autonomy to the dwellers.

In Ramlal’s view this PARALLEL government is justifiably democratic as it instills a feeling of by the people, from the people, of the people.


Naxalism: above all remember, “YOU NEVER RECEIVED THIS MESSAGE”


But just before we start with Ramlal’s letter, I know Part V of three Wise souls is pending, and that is scheduled for tomorrow.

I have just realized that RAMLAL’s prophesy on election dates in RED CORRIDOR has come true. Election TAMASHA in RED CORRIDOR is planned between April 9th and April 18th. He has just received a letter from his mentor. He now has to make copies of that message and circulate it across his area of influence. An open letter for Comrades titled, “How to conduct during GREAT ELECTION TAMASHA.” Here’s the transcript

Comrades! Great Indian Election TAMASHA is back & the dates finalized by Indian state to conduct this gimmickry in Red corridor are between 9th April and 18th April.

The corporate controlled media is preparing its schedule; is finalizing their team of journalists who will be soon seen along with some INDIAN politicians around RED CORRIDOR’s borders (obviously they can’t dare enter deep in our territory). Politicians will generously offer bags of grains, mosquito repellents, chloroquine tablets that help us fight malaria.

Some politicians will offer never-heard buying rates for TENDU leaves as well. There are rumors that for each PURA (a bunch of around 70 tendu leaves is called puri & a pack of 100 such puri s is called pura) which is generally sold at Rs 175-200 politicians will offer as high as Rs. 400.

As for media houses you already know what they will be doing. Politicians will claim that lots have been done for our betterment over the years & media will make special reports. Some of you will be asked to pose with Rs. 500 note with a footnote –“TRIBALS BEING PAID RS. 400 PER PURA”

You know media has been functioning as propaganda arm of the Indian state; and will again be showing “FREE & FAIR ELECTION TAMASHA” on respective channels.

Between these reports & especially during prime time slots you will also witness heavy advertisement from corporate houses. We know who they are; well known imperialists on whose directives INDIA STATE runs its policies.

We do not expect Media to show the blatant loot of rich mineral resources in our motherland that they call Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand & Orrisa. The propaganda efforts are geared to hide this connection between imperialist loot and war on its own people.

Comrades! Treat this as merry time. It is your time to LOOT. Take whatever is on offering with both arms. Do not refuse anything; whosoever agrees for a better rate vote for them. & above all remember, “YOU NEVER RECEIVED THIS MESSAGE”

Naxalism: “Great Indian Election Tamasha”


Ramlal’s ‘Red Corridor’ (the Naxal stronghold) is expected to go to poll first. Home ministry has suggested that polling in “difficult” areas like Ramlal’s villages in Chhattisgarh, his father in law’s region of Jharkhand & his distant relatives in Odisha be conducted in the initial phase.

While this will allow Home ministry maximum concentration of central forces; Ramlal I am sure is equally prepared. It is his “for the people, by the people & of the people” that is called government in these regions.

While I don’t care whether Election commission will oblige or not, Ramlal & Political parties sure are interested in what will finally emerge; though for different reasons.

Ramlal’s “Red Corridor” has good concentration of Christians. Political parties understand (fairly well actually!!) the importance of festivities & its defining impact on vote shares, last minute swings etc. April 18th is Good Friday & April 20th is Easter. They are planning to dole out freebies; Ramlals of “Red Corridor” are expecting Cows, goats, grain. Freebies are a fact of life in Indian politics, and items like livestock are only part of it.


Just before Good Friday, i.e. on 13th & 14th Some parts of Red Corridor will be busy celebrating Baisakhi, before which around 8th April tribals will be busy rejoicing birth of Lord RAM (Ramnavmi). By the way don’t forget Bihu which is highly popular among tribal (mid April). Just 4 days before Good Friday coinciding with Baisakhi will be baba’s jayanthi (Ambedkar’s birthday).

Political parties obviously will dole out. That’s already done & dusted. The only obstacle is that while all festivals are falling in April, election’s first phase is expected in first week of April. May good sense prevail and Election commission decides to conduct polling in these areas in second phase. Poor tribal will gain from “Great Indian Election Tamasha”

Ramlal has a bigger issue to tackle. He is sure that polling is going to happen in second phase. He is busy training his carders on how to propagate across the territory that all Ramlals of “Red Corridor” must accept all the freebies. They must also vote in exchange of the freebies. This is merry time & must be used to the fullest. His problem is that Ramlals of “Red corridor” are so loyal & committed to common cause of “liberation” that they are expected to throw away all freebies.


Ramlal’s message to his fellow Ramlals is, “Don’t worry. You know you already have a democratic government. But if some fools wants to conduct some funny elections let them. This is merry time comrades. Political jokers will come; they will spend; they will offer freebies. Accept them all.”
