Cameron’s visit to India

Submitted by vivek on Tue, 02/04/2013 - 00:04


I am writing to thank you for carrying the article entitled `David Cameron’s visit: Strengthening relations between the Indian and British bourgeoisie’ in the March 16-31, 2013 issue of MEL.  The article is an excellent example of the practice of dialectical materialism and reflects the heightened consciousness of the party.  It captures the essence of the relations between the bourgeoisie in India and Britain, the former colonial master of India.  It also provides a timely reminder of the composition and history of the Indian bourgeoisie and the continuation of the colonial legacy in the country.  It also exposes the link between the statecraft practiced by the Indian bourgeoisie and the lessons they have learnt from their British masters.  The article describes in detail the consciousness of the Indian ruling circles and its origins in Eurocentrism.  It also points out that many of the largest industrial houses in India have their origins in the colonial era and that they are striving to keep these links alive.  However, part of the enthusiasm is dampened because of the continued ambivalence of the British towards the European Union and the Indian bourgeoisie is wary of putting all its eggs in the British basket.  The article points out that the “shared heritage” that Cameron and Manmohan Singh talk about is the colonial outlook and the colonization of the Indian mind, in particular that of the Indian ruling circles.  Nevertheless, the Indian people themselves always were and continue to be opposed to this cozy relationship between the parasitic classes in Indian and in Britain.  In particular, the Indian people are well aware that the system that the British have instituted in India which has been continued by the Indian ruling circles is one of maximum exploitation for the masses and the accumulation of wealth for a miniscule minority.  The Indian people are opposed to such a system.  I commend you for carrying this timely article as an example of the finest tradition of Marxist-Leninist analysis.

Call of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 30th August, 2012

Working class representatives from all over the country are gathering on 4th September, at a time when a titanic struggle is going on in our country. The struggle is between the majority of toiling and exploited people and a minority of exploiters. It is between the majority whose labour expands wealth and the minority who enjoy the fruits of wealth creation on the basis of their private property and positions of power.
