Why did communism fail in India?

Yes communism has Failed in India :)

Let me be very practical and explain why communism has failed in India. Before I start writing the reasons, let me quote an excellent definition for communism from the Tamil movie Kaththi.

“உன் பசி ஆறிய பிறகுள்ள இட்டிலி வேரொருவனுக்கு உரியது!”

Translation: Idly which you eat after your hunger is someone else idly.

Now let me explain why communism failed in India with real time examples and situations.

Failure 1

Communism without conflicts is a wonder. You can expect conflict in whatever they do in India. I could find the biggest conflict with the agitations of communist comrades. Communist comrades will protest the price hikes of household products such as rice, sugar, vegetables, fruits etc. against government. They will also protest in favor of farmers (against government) to get good price for their products.

Selling price should be low, but Farmers should get good price.!!

Failure 2

Since India is a mixed economy, we can find the dominance of privatization in all sectors. Education is one such domain. Communist comrades will protest in favor of improved wages for teachers. But then they will also protest against school management for charging high tuition fees.

Failure 3

In Tamil Nadu, the government of India built a Nuclear power plant at Kootangulam with the partnership of Russia. Every political party and the general public protested against the nuclear power plant, as it may have an adverse effect during a period of emergency. Almost every party shared their opinion on this issue and a few demonstrated strikes in the Kootangulam area. But the Communist party of the state was not found in that place. Since it was built with the help of communist Russia, they didn’t involve in any agitation against government.

Nuclear Power Plant built by Russia is Ok, but, it will not be OK if it is built by the USA.

Failure 4

Tamil Nadu is facing serious conflict with its neighboring state Kerala on Mullai Periyar Dam. People of Kerala elects Congress Party and Communist Party in an alternative manner to rule the state. Whom ever forms the government in Kerala, the conflict over Mullai Periyar issue remains the same. Communist Party of Tamil Nadu will protest and support Mullai periyar issue, when Congress government is formed in the Kerala and will keep quite if communist government is formed in Kerala.

Is it what communism all about?

Failure 5

JNU at Delhi is one of the most prestigious Institutions in India. A few months back(2016), some students from the university engaged in some anti national activities by conducting some events in favor of terrorists who demolished India. Some students yelled anti national slogans during the protest in the university campus which was located in the Nation’s capital. Government took steps against those anti national activities. The biggest tragedy in the event was, students influenced by communism were involved in those incidents and Communist parties in the country supported such events, students. When government took steps against those anti nationals, communist party protested against the government stating that it is against freedom of speech and expression

Does Communism mean Anti national?

Failure 6

India follows multiparty system. There are few national parties and regional parties. Two communist party are considered as National Party. 10 years back the number of elected representatives in Lok Shabha(Lower house) was 80+. Now the elected representatives(2014) has reduced to single digit. The main reason for such drastic change is, Communist parties didn’t had any common agenda and they were not clear about the alliance agenda. Especially in Tamil Nadu, communist party faced adverse effect during the past election(s). In TN, Communist party cannot survive without alliance. They were very much interested in forming alliance with the party which offers higher number of seats than considering the ideology of the alliance party and communism ideology. That’s the biggest failure for the party and part had lost the trust from the people.

Failure 7

Atheism. In my perception Atheist are the kind of people who don’t have belief on any religion or God. I know enough Atheist who are against the blind and immoral practices of various religion. Communist comrades project themselves as atheist in the Public. But their definition of Atheism is quite different. These pseudo Atheist will have belief, will support, will favor all the religion and their god except anything related to Hinduism(against one particular religion). In India.

Atheism and communism is specifically anti-hindu(against one religion). All other religions are accepted

Failure 8

Basically communist parties in India are against corporate culture. The biggest failure with such agenda is, Communist party itself changed as corporate party. Comrades from the communist party will fight against corporate publicly in the street and privately will let his son/daughter work in the corporate office. In public, communist comrades will not consume pepsi, coco cola or any international cool drinks since it is from the USA(Corporate). But they will let themselves consume at home, inside the house. Communist comrades (Leaders) will protest outside about industry in the support of the laborers, while inside the room the leaders will accept any agenda of the management's. This is the biggest reason why they couldn’t form a trade union in the corporate offices and lost its value among the younger generation's people. All these things clearly indicate communism is for public and not for them.

Communism in Public, not Personal.

Conflicting right?? I feel these are conflicting. And I feel these are the failure of communism in India.

Looking forward for more comments on this post, So that I can get more information about this topic.
