A. P. Shukla on India:
For us Leftists the 11th Thesis (ref: Theses on Feuerbach by Karl Marx 1845) is a precious legacy, and an essential part of our survival kit; the choice of my title is an expression of this emphasis. With this in mind, I’ll first present a brief history of 40 years of punctuated evolution of Left activism in IIT, Kanpur, a 50 year old elite educational institute, established with US collaboration, and cultural dominance and control. Based on this, I’ll express my views on the problems of Left activism in the form of a few questions, to initiate a participatory discussion. With the wide civilizational divide between India and US, I hope this to be an interesting exchange which I’ll share with friends on my return to India.
