Happy Birthday Mr. Castro

Its celebration time in communists offices allover India. After all its world’s longest serving leader Fidel Castro's 80th Birthday.

India's top two Communist leaders, CPI(M)’s Prakash Karat and CPI’s A B Bardhan who never tire of singing praises of Cuban leader Fidel Castro and his battles with the US, are heading for Havana. Over a thousand guests are expected to attend this Left jamboree.
‘‘We are keen to know what the Latin Americans have to say about us (the Indian Left),’’ says Bardhan. Also he proudly claimed that Cubans are so resolute that they are not shattered by the succession of hurricanes and storms, a resilience that’s is not even shown by the US.
I am sure Mr. Burden(no i know my spelling) and Mr. Karat would use this trip to propagate the idea of democracy among their communist counterparts. Afterall, Thats what they were doing in Nepal.

This time two months ago
Following is the article from CPIM's People democracy.

Excerpt from the Article:
CPI(M) Polit Bureau member Sitaram Yechury, who has been facilitating the parties in Nepal to reach an understanding, has expressed confidence that the country’s journey towards democracy will be fructified in the coming three-odd months.
