This 26th December marked the 120th birth anniversary of Comrade Mao Zedong the founding father of the Communist China and one of the greatest communist icons. He was a Marxist-Leninist revolutionary whose ideals became famous by the name Maoism (a spectre that currently haunts India). He applied the Marxist-Leninist principles in his country in order to overthrow the reactionary and feudal government of Chaing Kai-Shek and established a people’s Govt in China. Before that he made an alliance with the same reactionary govt in order to save his nation from imperialist Japan. We salute him for making the masses victorious against the imperialists, capitalists and colonist and proving such reactionaries are just paper tiger.
Mao believed political power grows through the barrel of gun and revolution is no tea party; hence leading the masses towards the armed struggle and establishing a dictatorship of proletariat and thus taking the first step towards the dream of a world owned by people not the monsters of capitalism. Even though programmes such as ‘The great leap forward’ and ‘Cultural Revolution’ are a blot on his legacy at the end of the day we must not forget that leaders are mere humans not God. His famous book ‘Quotations from Mao Zedong’ also famous by the name of ‘The little red book’ became to be known as the bible of proletariat revolutionaries and still inspires people with light and freedom in their heart.
