A ’model’ communist state of today.
Kerala is considered to be one of the first places where communists have to power through free and fair elections. But what have they done so far?
Have they brought equality?
Have they ushered I the social revolution?
Well, we know that Kerala is one of the industrially backward states of India. For anything and everything Keralites have to depend on the non-communist Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh and others states. Agricultural production ahs come down drastically.
Above all the people have become lazy and indolent. The workers have become imitative and non co-operative through under the umbrella of the militant trade unions. They have been taught to clamor for the rights, benefits, allowances and better working conditions. They have also been groomed to shout slogans and to I processions shouting slogans for hours denouncing their employees and their ever increasing demands. But they are not willing to relate wage increase with production. They cannot be held accountable. They cannot be told to better their output.
Kerala would have become a state of beggars if the remittances of those working beyond its borders and abroad. The educational priority of the former rulers and the institutions established by the foreign missionaries are churning out a number of graduates and post graduates who go out and find jobs and earn.
The main duty of the communist government here is to collect taxes and distribute the same to the non-productive and ever increasing state employees. Almost 95% of the state revenue goes for the salaries, benefits and pension of the states ‘servants,’ who do almost nothing. And to get something done, the public has to probably bribe them. These employees who are fed by the tax payer has to bribe them to get a birth certificate or any such document. Further whys hould there be a state like this at all? Why should anyone penalize theose who work (from whom taxes are collected) and distribute to the mostly non-working ones?
A college teacher ( who gets anything between Rs.20,000 and 35000 need to attend his intuition only for about 120 days!. It is another matter whether he is accountable. For anything and everything holidays are declared. ‘Bandhs’ and ‘harthals’-which are aplenty are holidays too
Just like any other state which embraced communism it has regressed too. Well, communism has stifles even agricultural production. Agrarian workers has become organized and no farmer can afford them. Further, the workers demand work by force –as done by the head load laborers –at a price they fix!
There has been a social change. The old landowners have become poor peasants or beggars. The working class and the politicians have become rich and powerful. Inherently Keralites are neat and health-conscious and wants to be educated. There is no contribution from anyone on this angle. It is the innate goodness of the people themselves..
Industrialists are discouraged and even now profit making is considered a sin! How can any nation progress without employing the principles of free economy and industrial growth? In Kerala we find red flags flying aloft as a sign of protest or as a sign of warning for entrepreneurs to keep off. It is a sorry state of affairs indeed! Communism are you incorrigible?
