Thus a “Goonda” is Born in Kerala!

If you are not a hardcore communist and you have studied in Kerala, every character and sentence in this blog post will sound familiar to you.
C was a very brilliant student who passed 10th with over 95 percent marks and 12th with over 80% marks. He being the only kid of their well to do parents was one of the most pampered kids you could ever see. C wrote the entrance and his parents were very particular that he should be going only for a particular branch of engineering. With the rank he got it meant that he had to go to an engineering college almost 100kms from his house. What this also meant was that for the first time in his life C has to stay away from his house. C was scared to go to the hostel and C’s parents were sad to send their only kid to the hostel.
Hostel life of C started. He was so childish in his behavior and everyone in the hostel started making fun of him. To avoid ill treatment and to be with his parents he used to go to his house every Friday evening and came back only on Monday morning. His only focus was studies and studies alone. This continued for about 6 weeks into the first year.
One day a senior made fun of C for his childish behavior that made him cry instantly. That caught the attention of a SFI (student wing of communist party CPI(M)) leader who frightened the senior with dare consequences if he did that again. Now C has found a savior in this SFI leader. The leader told him to join SFI and said no one would tell anything to him. That day he joined the SFI officially.
Now the SFI leaders told him not to go home that weekend in order to celebrate his joining the SFI. The leaders took some money from him for that day’s party and that night C has the first taste of alcohol and cigarette. He started enjoying the new found freedom. Slowly he stopped going to the classes as parties and political discussions took up most of his nights. The guy who never knew that Kerala even had a government or a chief minister before joining this engineering college now had an enemy to fight against – Kerala government lead by the Chief Minister K Karunakaran for its capitalistic policies. Socialism, Independence and Democracy were his motto and everyone except communist followers were his enemies as they were all against working class and poor people.
C now rarely went home during weekends. He was treated as a hero after participating in a hunger strike against self financing colleges. A fight broke out one day between SFI and the other student organization in the college and SFI entrusted C with the job of manhandling the leader of the other party. He did that with perfection as that student leader was admitted with head injury to the hospital. Police registered a case against C and arrested him. The other SFI leaders and the local leaders swing into action and released C within 24 hours. He was given a hero’s welcome on his return from jail. From that day any fight involving SFI that occurred in the college and police registers a case, C was sure to be in that list.
C passed in just 3 subjects (out of 13) in first year and failed all the subjects in third semester. C took that as a credit while his parents were panic stricken. But they were helpless as their son thought that going to jail, manhandling others and fighting against imperialism is why he was going to the college for. His parents went on a trip to visit all the temples in India thinking that some God out there will help change the mind of their now atheist son.
C’s so called heroism during the clashes in the college brought him so many female fans and one of them proposed to him. He accepted that proposal and now he started coming to the college during day time just to see that girl and to talk to her.
Around that time the government changed and C’s party came to power and C got the top post of the party in the college. Since the government changed he knew that the police was on his side and he used that to his advantage. He started retaliating to all his opponents with ample support from the police force. He became a terror in the college.
It was time to finish college and C had tones of back papers. As soon as college officially ended the CPI(M) recruited him to DYFI (youth wing of CPI(M)) and now his area of influence has grown. If the party wants to terrorize anyone in that district they will come to him. Meanwhile he revolted against his parents and married the girl he loved. The party gave a job to his wife so that C could be used for trashing the opponents.
Slowly he started expanding his empire outside the party by taking “quotations” outside the party. So if you want to beat up or seriously injure or kill or scare someone he would do it for a particular amount. He started getting so many orders of quotation and time came when he couldn’t handle all by himself. He started appointing people for doing small quotations and in no time grew to become a big goonda of the town, thanks to the training he received from the communist party. Thus a goonda is born.
Now hooliganism is prevalent in Kerala with all the students’ organizations like KSU, ABVP etc. But the great difference – the support and encouragement of the leadership of the CPI(M) to the students for whatever hooliganism they do serves as a source of encouragement for students to do more rowdism while other parties always sets a limit. Result of that – youth wings of CPI(M) has become the breeding ground for “goondas” in the state.

How so familiar! But very likely many realize their folly once they reach the 30s or go out of Kerala and see the world. And when we have even Goonda ministers who openly challenges the Govts that they'd make bombs in front of the police station, such stories will keep on happening again.

This is spectacular. I had personal experience with almost every incident mentioned and I can clearly point out people who was unknowingly grabbed by the dirty hands of left politics. I heard from my village recently that a gang of 9 in the age group of 19-21 was arrested for criminal charges including robbery. They all were a part of SFI-DYFI(Goondas). I was so happy to hear that not because they were a part of political party but they were a threat to the society. Whenever I pointed out this to the local political leaders about this their reply was, they can control them always. They were proved completely wrong. Once they got established themselves they wont listen to any Tom, Dick or Harry. However,Goonda squad is doing a good job these days. The gang I mentioned is under the custody of very efficient police officer in the Goonda squad.

1. Politicizing even boozing and partying? its not a fair accusation. Does any one in Kerala need help to get inducted to alcoholism (and that too from representatives of any party?)
2. Brijesh, I ll DM you names of my fiends who stood in forefront of SFI politics while in Engg College( stage of your blog story) and who excelled in studies (and they continue to excel now in their professional lives)

hi brijesh nice blog.I don't have much experience in this as I did not study in Kerala. But I think that such activities will useful in the formative years of a leader and an individual can learn a lot about many things happeneing in Kerala. Also to get some friends who will be with you for a long period is not bad. Of course there are bad issues too but we have to see the good side also. Most of these so called party people have good charater.

I have been a part of SFI movement in an engg college in Kerala, and me and many of my friends did well in academics while retaining an active political consciousness. Having late-night political discussions helped us develop a sense of social responsibility - we used to analyze serious issues around us when others said 'they do not affect us, so why shud we bother?'. Some of us boozed, some did not, but it had nothing to do with the SFI. There was concrete action against denigrating ppl through ragging, but it was something to be proud of. There were definitely forgettable moments for the organization and for us, but we were definitely the better crowd, morally. I am not a communist today. But I am thankful that I am not the 95%-marks guy, idolized by the 'apolitical' crowd, who hides his head between his legs when he sees injustice around him.

Quite a few ex-SFI-ians around here, and pretty interesting viewpoints.

I'm pretty well familiar with SFI and Campus politics after being filtered through red forts like Govt Arts College, University college Trivandrum and then onto the Medical college. and I understand the politics and 'social enlightening' taken up by SFI like many of the above. It would be interesting to see the amount od social responsibility our youth have acquired from KSU,SFI and ABVP. Its like a very bad joke... Telling that such student organizations are quintessential to mould up morally eligible citizens is like arguing that compulsory religious teaching is necessary to create a society with high-moral grounds. Its for everyone to see the kind of products coming out of such religious organizations... So lets not read too much into the students organization tales.

Its a naked truth that such so-called students organizations are nothing but cheap back-up force for the major Political parties to carry out their agenda. Its a laugh to argue that they've done our society a great service, other than the churning out of the special class of citizens mentioned in the article, destroy public property, waste youth energy and man-hours and disrupt public life.

I agree with you.More than 95% of the students will realize that they are not going to gain anything by playing politics and they change. But few never realizes that and the character in my post of one of them.

I think scorpiogenius has answered for the points you raised.


Well said dude! We almost traveled the same path. Govt Arts College, Unversity college and NSS College of Engg, all bastions of Red.

Goondas are social elements of any politics which involves rivalry. It is nothing new to Kerala since it was there since the known history of Kerala. The effect is emphasised well in this post, but is bit vague about the causes of it.

Almost 90% of SFI guys are good hearted and secular people.they are ready to mingle with poor students and perform well in arts and literature.KSU and ABVP are coward and racists.KSU brings local goondas to college and ABVP does racist injection..ANYWAYZ SFI GUYS ROCKS WITH THEIR RESONING POWER AND ACADEMIC BRILLIANCE!!!

Dear Brijesh,
dont be so one sided, I know you and you know me. You and Your family is a known Congress sympethyser. you se nly one side. you have no right to impose thses things in a web world.
Do you beleive only SFI, DYFI and CPM have goonda. dont CONGRESS Support Goondas??? if i can tell you name and deatils of Congres and Muslim Leauge GOONDAS, will you quit your job and go for sanyasam????

i have till date asked any congress men who is the real father of OOMMEEN CHANDY's grand child (kid of Muthoot's wife). Muthoot people have given quotation (yes quotation) to OOMMEN CHANDY and CHENNITTALA that if they same the image of PAUL MUTHOOT (he is a duggist and criminal with land mafia back up), the alex muthhot will take up the responsibility of that KID. will CHANDY perform DNA TEST of his grand child.
the leader who is not able to correct his daughtre has no RIGHT to be opposition leader or leader of a national party.
Brijesh, Do you know that the unit president of our College NSS College of Engineering , palakkad KSU during 92 period was caught for taking bribes (KAIKKOOLI) from a poor man.
Brijesh ee, Rashtriya thimiram nallathalla. do you beleive that when VS and Chennittala meets, they will fight??? No, they will never. those who fights for them will be you and me. we are fools. so dont take things in this way and never be a FOOL. i have dreams about you, you were a bright civil student at that time. even if you were a KSU sympethyser and I was an SFI man, Had i shown any difference???? we were freinds. let us contimnue that. we are not in college period now. so you should avaiod this typwe of comments in this forum.
sorry for all these and to HURT you (I am sure i had hurt you with rrealities). you can mail me in person or call me in eprson. i am the same man as i was at NSSCE.

very timely post...and I suddenly remembered many Cs from my college days...I also had my schooling and college life in bastions of the reds...model school and sct engg college..
and many of them there joined in politics just cos it was a shade to all their unlawful the same time many innocents also fell into it blinded by the non-existent ideology. Its the same with most student organisations but SFI stands out as the lord of them all in corrupting young minds..

and it was insightful to read the comments from ex-red leaders :D..I wonder why peeple dont learn the realities with advancing age...or is it plain acting :)

Dr Unnikrishnan,
Unni, nice to see you after a long time. Congrats on your PhD. Now to reply to your comments...

Do you beleive only SFI, DYFI and CPM have goonda. dont CONGRESS Support Goondas???

Unni, if you have read my entire blog you could not have written this. See the last paragraph of my blog post “Now hooliganism is prevalent in Kerala with all the students’ organizations like KSU, ABVP etc. But the great difference – the support and encouragement of the leadership of the CPI(M) to the students for whatever hooliganism they do serves as a source of encouragement for students to do more rowdism while other parties always sets a limit. Result of that – youth wings of CPI(M) has become the breeding ground for “goondas” in the state.”

What does that mean? Every party has a role in creating goondas but what I am saying is CPI(M) take it to a level above all the other parties as Praveen just mentioned below your comment.

Now your comments about Omman Chandy. I use to read most of the newspapers daily and never came across such a news. Can you enlighten about the link to this news about some paternity test of someone in Omman Chandy’s family?

do you beleive that when VS and Chennittala meets, they will fight??? No, they will never. those who fights for them will be you and me. we are fools.

I know this from childhood. That is why when I studied I never participated in strikes at the instance of a party or leader, destroyed public properties or did hunger strikes or fight against each other at the instance of the party or party leaders. I know very well that some leaders are using the students as pawn for their political gains.

“we were freinds. let us contimnue that.” We will always be friends.

Dear All
How many of our people including those who commented to the comments of Brijesh can truly state that they are apolitical and have never went to a politician for a favour??????
one thing is clear,every one has politics in kerala. so there is no need in white washing one side and sweeping off another side.
in a society there are all type of people. good one, bad one and ugly. the society will get a leader whom they deserve.
so there is no point in figuring out SFI, DYFI or any other group. politics will go wrong when they take support of anti socials for their survival. I had seen a grup called in by then ABVP of my college to attach college hostel at 4.00 AM and tried to killed several. if SFI/KSU/ABVP or who ever does should be isolated in a campus. there is no need in figuring out a single group.
there are places where left wing is not there like columbia and parts of america. is there safe to LIVE??? dosent they have goondas and mafias?????
in many parts of america neegros are carved to the mantle of mafia and goonda. is it becoz they are left wing????
in a society there will be all class of people.
see literate, knowledgeable people like us are quarelling for a group / party...
can you find similar group outside India??? may be you can find in sri lanka, pakistan or bangladesh. rest of the world you cant find such group. our foucus is being shifted.
one more thing to add, angadiyil tholkkunnathu oralalla, samoohamanu, nammallokkeyanu....
so can we think straight????

Uncle ai,

read my first and second posting. the content is the same. I know how many people will read brijesh's post and my post. thettu

choondikanikkendathanu. i am not expectring any party to support me if i am doing wrong. if you know Brijesh, pls ask him to post a single

incedent during the college times (we were at same college, classmates at school and he was a batch junior to me in the engineering college)

where society will point out that i have sinned or done mistakes. he wont be able to do or any one in the college including ABVP and KSU

people. my case can be shown to ANYONE in that college in political, organising or carreer wise. (just to tell you I have 2 PG and a PhD to my

credit, wont it be enough to prove the academic ability??? i am not saying i am the last word and i may not be the best in industry but nay one

can have my case discussed, sariyalle brijesh???? Have you ever expected me to be a PhD man???). ente personal karyam villu kalayuka.

Uncle, you go through the posting and you can clearly find out that no posting is neutral. all are one sided (even yours). else i challenge you to

send me your adreess (both work place and home). i will get you and the people reading these posting full details of you and your political

affinity. (i have never seen you, never heard about you ad calling uncle just since you have nemed your profile as UNCLE)....

politics is not for these type of discussion. i once again tell you as in every field there are good people and bad peo[ple in politics. YOU ARE

WASTING TIME AND MONEY IN ONE SIDE SUPPORT. either stand by one side, go for campaign for them and live with them. or keep the

affinity inside and vote for them. allathe itharam wasting discussions enthinanu?????

as you are regularly posting i understood that you have un-interupted internet access and regular surfer and hence i conclude you are well

placed and have lot of time for seeing world. so people like you shpuld not waste time like this. you are behaving like grass root level political

worker who fight for leaders, quareel for space in walls for putting posters etc.

let any one sue me. i m not denying what i said. i just posted it to remember that all are human and there are good and bad people in society.

like Mr. Chandy, I can share stories of any one ramesh, hassan, leader, or any one. they are all ordinary men. there are similar people in left

also. they are like that since they come from our society. you and me may be good or bad and thus our representatives will also be good or

bad. so either be a chaver for political parties or keep silent and express your wishes in BALLOT.

I know all these people PERSONNALY. left right, central and small players. i keep relations with them also.

if any one supports blindly a political party then he should be ready to hear the dark stories of his party also. else keep quiet.
if any other clarification required pls mail me or post additonal things.

chumma Blog ezhuthiyal onnum nadakkillla. if you wish to do something fruitful for society, any political party, your political party, nation etc do

something apart from writing blogs, forwarding emails and sms. i can boldly say this since i am doing many things on ground for nation and

society (including charity work taking leave from work).................

പ്രീയ ഉണ്ണീകൃഷ്ണൻ,

ബ്ലോഗുകളുടെ പ്രാധാന്യം താങ്കൾ ഇനിയും മനസ്സിലാക്കിയിട്ടില്ലെന്നത് കഷ്ടം തന്നെ. താങ്കളുടെ ഒരു കമന്റിൽ എഴുതിയതിങ്ങനെയാണു:“ i have till date asked any congress men who is the real father of OOMMEEN CHANDY's grand child (kid of Muthoot's wife).“

ഇതൊരു ബ്ലോഗ് ആയതു കൊണ്ടു മാത്രമാണു താങ്കൾക്ക് ഈ വാചകം എഴുതാൻ സ്വാതന്ത്ര്യം കിട്ടിയതു. ഞാൻ വെല്ലു വിളിക്കുന്നു, ഈ വാചകം താങ്കൾക്ക് ഏതെങ്കിലും മുഖ്യധാരാപത്രങ്ങളിൽ എഴുതാമോ. വിവരമറിയും. അതാണു ബ്ലോഗിന്റെ പ്രാധാന്യങ്ങളിൽ ഒന്നു. അതിരു കവിഞ്ഞാൽ സൈബർ സെല്ല് പിടിക്കുമെന്നത് വേറെ കാര്യം.

എന്തുമാത്രം ആളുകൾ ബ്ലോഗുകൽ വായിക്കുന്നു എന്നു മനസ്സിലാക്കണമെങ്കിൽ ബ്ലോഗിൽ രേഖപ്പെടുത്തുന്ന ‘കൌണ്ടറിൽ’ പരിശോധിക്കൂ. അതെങ്ങനെ, ഒരു ബ്ലോഗു പോലും ഇല്ലാത്ത താങ്കൾ കമന്റുകൾ രേഖപ്പെടുത്താൻ മാത്രമായിരിക്കണം ഒരു പ്രൊഫൈൽ ഉണ്ടാക്കി വച്ചിരിക്കുന്നത്.

എന്നെ പറ്റി അറിയാൻ അധികം പാടൊന്നും പെടേണ്ട. എന്റെ പ്രൊഫൈലിൽ ക്ലിക്ക് ചെയ്താൽ മാത്രം മതിയല്ലോ. അവിടെ എന്റെ ചരിത്രവും ഭൂമിശാസ്ത്രവും എല്ലാം രേഖപ്പെടുത്തിയിട്ടുണ്ട്. സമുഹത്തിനു വേണ്ടി ഞാൻ ചെയ്യുന്നതെന്തെന്നും അവിടെ കാണാം.

ഞാൻ കോൺഗ്രസിലോ, കമ്മ്യൂണിസത്തിലോ പാർട്ടി അംഗമല്ല. രണ്ടു കൂട്ടരോടും പ്രത്യേകിച്ച് മമതയൊന്നുമില്ല.

ബ്ലോഗുകളൂടെ പ്രാധാന്യം മുഖ്യധാരാ മാധ്യമങ്ങൾ അംഗീകരിക്കുന്നുണ്ട്. അതും കൂടെ കണ്ടു കൊണ്ടാണു കൂടുതൽ കൂടുതൽ പാർട്ടി അംഗങ്ങൾ ബ്ലോഗിൽ ഇടപെടണമെന്നു ഈയിടെ സി.പി.എം. തീരുമാനമെടുത്തതും, അതനുസരിച്ച് ധാരാളം സഖാക്കൾ ബ്ലോഗുകളിൽ കൂടി പ്രതികരിക്കുന്നതും. കവലപ്രസംഗങ്ങളിൽ കൂടെ മാത്രമേ സാമൂഹ്യസേവനം നടത്താനാകൂ എന്ന ദിനങ്ങളൊക്കേ എന്നേ കഴിഞ്ഞു, ശ്രീ ഉണ്ണി കൃഷ്ണൻ.

ബ്രിജേഷ് ഈ ബ്ലോഗിൽ കൂടി പറയുന്നത്, അറിയേണ്ട പലരും വായിക്കുന്നുണ്ടെന്ന് മനസ്സിലാക്കുക. മറ്റു ബ്ലോഗുകളിൽ കൂടിയും എന്തെല്ലാം സംഭവിക്കുന്നുണ്ടെന്നു താങ്കൾ അറിയാൻ ശ്രമിക്കണേ.

അതിനൊന്നും സമയമില്ലെങ്കിൽ, തിരുവനന്തപുരം ബ്ലോഗേർസ് ഗ്രൂപ്പിലെങ്കിലും അംഗമാകൂ. പലതും അറിയാൻ കഴിയും താങ്കൾക്ക്, ബ്ലോഗുകൾ എന്താണെന്നു.

34 വയസ്സുള്ള താങ്കൾ 66 വയസ്സുള്ള എന്നെ അങ്കീൾ എന്നു വിളിച്ചു പോയതിൽ നാണിക്കേണ്ട കാര്യമൊന്നുമില്ല.

Dr Unnikrishnan

I have a doubt. You keep on telling that every one has politics in Kerala and no one is neutral. People like “Ankil” claims that they are politically neutral. Now isn’t there substantial politically neutral people in Kerala? If there is no such classifications as politically neutral people how you can explain the following?

In 2001 UDF won around 100 seats in the Assembly elections while LDF managed only 40 seats. In 2004 Lok Sabha election, LDF won 19 seats and UDF won just one. In 2006 Assembly election LDF won 100 seats and UDF won 40 seats. The trend reversed in the recently concluded Lok Sabha election with UDF winning 17 and LDF winning 3.

If every one has politics and believe in a party how can this be possible? People like Ankil who say they are politically neutral may have voted for UDF in 2001 and 2009 while he may have voted for LDF in 2004 and 2006. To me in Kerala if we take the total votes polled, 30% each may belong to party supporters of UDF and LDF and another 5 percent to the party supporters of the BJP. Come what may these people will vote only for their party. There are another 35% people that vote based in the ground realities and they are the main deciding factor in any election. Your argument may be correct in Bengal where always communist party wins but in Kerala there are substantial neutral voters.

Another example of strength of neutral voters – victory margin of Dr Shashi Tharoor form Trivandrum.

So I don’t buy the argument that every one in Kerala has politics and no one is neutral. There are neutral people in Kerala and the perfect proof of it is the voting pattern in the state.

Dear ALL
Pls read my to continuous posting. In second I have included that the comments are not meant for any one. it is not against Uncle also. Uncle may be doing many things for society. if it is so i really appreatiate him.
We are not discussing Mr. Chandy, or anyone but the general comments made by Brijesh. i agree to that the blog is read by many nad hence he should not have generallised the issue that Goonda is made the SFI/DYFI way. in last para he has washed his hands but the content is clearly against left politics. wih his known political affinity he should bot have written it.

it is true that i had never posted a blog. i have till date responded only to 3-4 blogs. when these things of articles are seen if it is not opposed it will go on like a anti-lEFT campaign.
i have no opposition towards chandy or ramesh. what will happen if 35% left supporters (as brijesh observed) started writing these type of articles against congress leaders. the web will be full of WASTE.

those who read and write blogs are supposed to be literate [people and have a better standard of living. so the blogs should be like that way only.

this posting is not against brijesh or Uncle but tot he world as a corrective measure (am trying to). today there is a news in media that KODALI SREEDHARAN (a notorious GOONDA) paid money to congress leaders including our beloved V M Sudheeran. Am i writing blog against sudheeran????

neutral can analyse things and write, but people with politics should not wrtie one sided comments.

I am ready to respond to any blog if i feel it ios against my though. any one can send me links of the blog. i got htese blogs accedently and commented.

Regarding Sashi Tharoor, his majority is not an indication. in that case M I hanavas is the best person in kerala Politics or in Kerala Assembly M. Chandran is the best (he got the highest ever majority in the history of kerala assembly polls.)

mandates will change and it is not becoz of neutral people voting. should we disroy muslims in Gujrath just becoz MODI got thumping wins????

mandate of polls is due to many different factors.

Sashi Tharoor declared 15 crore assets during filing nominaton (pls correct if i am wrong). will any one beleive that he spend 20% of his assets for is stay in Delhi??? (can you any one spend 15% of assets for personal stay for 4-5 months???). if any discount is given by hotels they know how to utilise it. power politics is over you and me. it is a huge vulture. you cant even touch it.

Lokam nannavan alla ithokke ezhuthunnahu, just to make sure that wrong things will be tried to be corrected. (no guarentee for corection).

replies solicited.

Dear Dr. Unnikrishnan,
I am a neutral voter. I suspended by on elections too. I will criticize against irregularities. Can you support me on the analysis of Indian Rubber Statistics. The evidence of irregularities maintaining through Google docs periodically. I am a supporting Dr. Shashi Throor on his quality beyond party politics. I am not bother about his stay at Hotel Taj. I have to see what he done for Trivandrum. For more details Visit Dr. Brijesh gave an example of student from SFI. But I heard that there a store of weapons of SFI at University College & ABVP at M.G College. I don't know more about it.

why you are hiding the very fact that you were a KSU activist during college days and pose as a neutral. Was it a very bitter expereince for you that you like to forget that episode? OR you think that is it a shame to admit that you were a KSU activist?

Eagerly awaiting your reply, before responding to your post.

Bedi Philip,

surprised to read your 'comparison' with one of the good movies in malayalam 'Piravi'. Is this the way you are 'enjoying' a movie!!!
Any way, thanks for inviting attention to the real incident which was the basis for the movie...the cold blooded murder of an engineering student (not X, Y or Z...but all know him as Rajan)...shall we together remember here which 'goonda' was hand in glove in that act?

I feel that you have taken a particularly bad example and generalised it. As is the case with all such efforts, it loses its strength when the author conveniently forgets to present the other side or a well rounded view. I too studied in colleges where we all had active politics (Govt. College, Chittur & NSS Engg., Palakkad) and what you wrote could well fit in if you replaced SFI with KSU - I have seen and experienced the same in Chittur College. However, this does not mean that all student politics is bad and all organisations are forcing violence on their students. If I look back on the leaders we had (of both parties) in those days in our colleges, most of them are doing well now and quite a good many of them are also active in social service - meaning they continue to have the social commitment they learned during their student politics days. A politically active student community is needed for a healthy society and if you care to look back at most of the struggles against injustice, you will find active campus involvement in that. An apolitical society is the worst you can get and for all those that want campuses to be politically free - be aware that the replacement will be "gangs" as you see in the campuses in metros and there is nothing worse than that.

Dear All
people send wards to school/college for learning. college students (entry level at degree)are 17+ years. they are casting votes in election. they have many commitments to society as the study at the cost of society (govt fees only 20% of what government is spending on them. not considering the self financing scenerio). peopel projected teanment Squire incedent at China a revolutionary thing where students agitated against communist rule. whole capitalist work was behind them, WHY??? thet have agenda....

wrting comments should not be restricted to blog writers alone. many [people (not taking example of uncle and good farmer)are writing blogs to shed their dis satisfation towards bitter experiance.... why people fight against present politicians by floating a regional level aprty with good agenda and principle. i will stand by you for good cause and am sure many will follow.....

so one more thing. writing blogs, mails and sms wont make the society clean and polititians good. but for this you an dme have o wiork together.
taking one example and generalising wont help anyone. if you feel that SFI creates GOONDAYISM and will it be stoppe if yo wrie blogs and send sms??????

why acnt elderly people like uncle and farmer (not personalising) take initiative to hold a discussion on he issue at the capital. we can invite all student youth state leders and discuss.

one more question. how come GOONDAYISM and MAFIA survive in columbia and latin america without SFI and DYFI. pls answer to this point

Everyone - I was away from blog as my wife was in hospital to deliver our first kid. That is why it took so long to write replies.

Omar Sherif

I was NOT a KSU worker or worker of any political party till this point of time.


“what you wrote could well fit in if you replaced SFI with KSU”

That is what I also wrote in the last paragraph. I took SFI as an example because it always take campus violence to a next level compared to others and they get complete protection from the party leadership. I condemn the hooliganism of all the student political parties including KSU and ABVP.


I never told everyone becomes a goonda. Even 1% turn to criminal activity that is bad. That is all I mentioned in the post

Dear Brijesh,
I accept your reply as the apology to your original posting.

You, and the people like you, try to generalize single issues to a universal truth. During my college hostel period I found more than 5 KSU leaders were the pimp to local prostitutes. They used to canvas the customers from our college hostels. But how I can state the entire KSU leadership were a group of pimps. So the issue is different. We are trying to inject the venom to the public, for small gains. It's just like or worser than yellow gossipping.

Now if those 5 KSU leaders are protected by their leadership what will happen? That is the case with student politics.

Here the students destroy public property, take law in their own hands as part of the student politics and all these students will be protected by the leadership of the political party. This encourages them to do more unlawful activities. This protection is always more in a communist party that any party out there. This is the point of my post.

Dear Brijesh,
Do you accept the KSU leaders are a group such loose chracters? [One or more of the mentioned leaders had been promoted to District and state level later.] This is the reason why the campus rejected KSU politics in Kerala. Even in the latter part of my campus life normal KSU sympathizers were shy to say "I am a member of KSU." So they wear a mask of nonpolitcos or independents etc etc.

As everyone on your outfit, now you come forward crying on campus violence. Do you consider pimping is better? You should try to read the history of India for the answer.

If you are in a hurry to tarnish students movements, that's okay. But the truth is different.

Dear Brijesh,
Is there such a person as neutral? I don’t know. Very hard for me to fathom. There are people who have a natural left leaning, some with right and some may even fancy the right honorable gentleman from Palghat/London/New York/Trivandrum/Delhi.
I studied in an extremely apolitical(?) School. But yes, we were extremely political. Those were the days of idealism.

You can accuse them of anything but not the instigators of goodaism. I would suppose Goondas are a product of the society. Don’t you have goondas/dons in Bombay?? New York?? Kiev??? You have SFI there???

Utopia is a wonderful place, I am told. And so is Kimbuktu.

Very true.The left youth wing and student wings in the present state is a bad mark on student politics...And ABVP is not much different...It is solely through manpower that these organisations works at the college level....
Leaders like M.A Baby ,Thomas Issac,N.K Premachandran all came through student politics at a time when the campuses where active in ideological debates....Now there is no ideological debate;The monopolization of students politics at college campuses by SFI
also lead to the deterioration of the organisation to a union were sole power seekers and those who want protection from criminal activities can find roost...student politics should actively partcicipate in students problem but should de-link from youth congress/DYFI/RSS and should have a separate identity as a students political movement dictating terms and not subordinate to area secretaries/unit secretaries ....

What ever you told is correct but, you can not pin only SFI for that.All students unions are responsible for this.I think you are making a point blank shot against them without considering other facts..
As a conclusion I support your points..But probably you have a partial view which is not healthy ..Please don't take it personally..
