E.M.S. Namboodiripad The Frontline Years (Selected Articles)
Description
Back of the Book

The present volume puts together a selection of EMS’s Frontline columns. It is a testimony to the variety of his interests, his erudition, and his ability to communicate complex questions of history, politics and Marxist theory in simple and elegant prose. EMS discusses, among other things, the roles and contributions of congress leaders from Dadabhai Naoroji and Ranade to Gandhi Subhas Bose and Nehru, to Narasimha Rao and Manmohan Singh; he discusses the thoughts and relevance of Marxist theoreticians including Lenin, Rosa Luxemburg, Mao Zedong and Stalin, as well as Nelson Mandela; he writes on religion, philosophy and art; he discusses important questions of the Indian polity including planning and centre-state relations; he comments on the Indian communist movement (including on the decision not to join the United Front government at the centre in 1996); and he writes about the radical experiments in Kerala

About The Author

E.M.S. NAMBOODIRIPAD (1909-1998) was among India’s pioneering Communist leaders and a Marxist theoretician of enormous stature. He became Chief Minister of Kerala on two occasions, in 1957 at the head of the historic first communist government, and again in 1967 as head of a seven-party coalition. He was the author of several books and hundreds of articles and essays.

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
