The online edition of 'PAATOM' Magazine founded by MN Vijayan -
In the Context of diffusion of imperialist machinery into the Indian Communist movements PAATOM raises indignant resistance against the hell of ideology and praxis vitiated by the pseudo Marxist goons of imperium.
'PAATOM' is a resistance from the deepest of the racial sanctity of humanity nursed by the leftist political ethos. "PAATOM" is the voice of honest determination, that means to uncover the treacherous objects concealed beneath the mystery of hegemonic jargon.
We offer a laborious contribution to the truly humanist interventions that would enlarge the circumference and depth of emotional and intellectual perceptions.

compromise is betrayal
Trans. Chithra bhanu
Now we are facing a judiciary case. The issue that we raised cannot either be
initiated or resolved with the dictates of law or it cannot be compromised in the presence of a judicial system. This is an issue of grave concern aligned to the discontent and alertness of people. So a compromise or back tracking is betrayal.
Often the population in the NGO organizations do not know the masked intentions beneath the explicit social goodness activities in which they are involved . Patom
fought hard to reveal the malice embedded in the NGO activities concealed under the charity mask and to create qualms in their minds and started questioning the NGO literature instead of accepting it with opened mouth, . These are not fortunes, all are actions.
They blamed the language of Patom. We tried to say all good things in coarse language. Those who spoke awful things in pleasing language might not like it. It’s worth using aggressive language as demanded by the gravity of the theme and it cornered massive attention it deserved . Patom always tried to present facts with authenticity and convincing proof . But we would like to say that those who criticized the offense of language didn’t use (have never used) language generated from their blood but language borrowed or translated . Patom is raising the questions about the projects that are implemented here, by the foreign donor agencies in language foreign to us.. Which country`s, which agencies’ and which bank`s language is used for those works? Is it language genuine? Is it language earnest as the offensive tongue of Patom?So when we are probing for the core reason behind this, we recognize that the familiar words we used is not ours, but foreign and it is planted upon our vacant brains.
There was a period like this. Somebody came here, planted seedlings and offered subsidies for that. This process started in the middle of 1990`s and got into the significant organization after some internal struggles. Once two wicked officials came to the platform of the organization and offered all expenses for their conferences. But the secretary of that period rejected the proposal and they vacated the space frustrated. But they came back later, made a conquest, sponsored the expenses. In addition, with or without knowing the objectives beneath the monetary generosity , all such activities are glorified in expensive idioms.. And now we are in the stage of padlock, unable to set us free.
It is so simple to know, who wants to teach the people who are illiterate? Who has suffused the people again and again using soap? Who has cleaned the hands which are tidy over again with liquid soap? What is the dirt in us? Our life has entirely changed as our political spaces are incarcerated and devastated as well. Patom tried to say that is happening here.
So we are cheated by the actions dignified in appearance that can annoy our life. This global capitalism knows what to use in Iraq, It is missile. And in India and Kerala? They know it is not missile but global funding. We are addressed to identify the cunning intelligence of capitalism. It is a crime to make out this villainy, says somebody under the shade of our party . We are doing it for those who do not believe it as a crime. So we are not supposed to look after or humiliate one`s pride when we speak offensive truth in truthful language . If truth hurts the reputation or pride of a person it is the fault of truth-Thou shall not speak truth –is the term of compromise. But it is a question that digs deep in to the meaning of existence.If not for truth why we,why Patom should live? Betrayal of truth, that we call compromise is death;then we live the death of our true selves. But we opt not for treacherous death .We never die, as we speak truth with sufficing punch of sarcasm.. We lift the pride of the race as we speak horrid truth although it disturbs the supposed honour of one or two persons or a bunch of ignorance. So ,as said, the issue cannot be solved by a compromise before the court of law .
We were supposed to stay the publication of Patom in the context of election as Berlin Kunjananthan Nair says, as it is not the time for confronting confusions.. The publication of Patom is terminated for a short period for various reasons .It doesn’t suggest any compromise; but there is no use of lighting a fire repeatedly; if once we lit it ,it would burn. This is not a compromise, but an assertion. Now we have declared about what we could do and it is the time for you to do the right thing on the right occasion
So the distress that had been created by Patom in our politics is an essential one. It is because we are sleeping upon the sacrifice andstruggles of lots of people. It is because we have been losing our memory. There is no relevance for memory in postmodernism. But in history memory has its own position. Keralites have reached such an enlightened situation through incessant struggles stained with blood and tears , within one or more centuries. It was the chain of ceaseless struggles against the brutality of caste, religion and imperialism. It might be the struggle against the invasion of God as well. Sree Narayana Guru has fought against the invasion of God that colonized the freedom of intelligent eyes. It might be for the right to walk. We also have been losing the right to walk. There are higher roads for upper class rich people and old roads for poor to creep. That is happening very specific in Kerala. This is the reversal of the movements of Aiyyankali and Ayyappan mash that reformed our history; such reversal processes gain momentum in the sphere of ideology but all such ideological aberrations are grounded in the political economy of capitalism
This is a kind of regression. Its reason might be desire for better living condition and wealth .The people who have better living condition might not have feeling of the unity emerging from the intensity of hunger. Therefore, we are distant from the age of those who for the cause of hunger got together for change. Apart from that, we went back to the miserable lives of dogs that sleep in sound ignorance and dies in sleep. So we enjoyed all kinds of intrusion over our head, body and system. Hence foreign agencies offer prices for finding the origin of communists here. There is a global funding agency imposing payments upon your brain to activate a thesis about the genesis of communism .We are hired to act against our enlightened sense of history. It is our duty to be awakened and strike against the disgrace that we are facing now. And if somebody has been hurt by it ,of course we are pleased that we struck the target
