CSI Garrison Wesley Church

CSI-Garrison Wesley Church (built in 1853) located in Trimulgherry is among the oldest churches in Secunderabad under the auspices of the Protestant Church of South India (CSI) within the ecclesiastical jurisdiction of the Diocese of Medak. Situated in Lal Bazar civilian area of the Secunderabad Cantonment, the CSI-Garrison Wesley Church is in near vicinity of the Military College of Electronics and Mechanical Engineering (MCEME), and the church has continued to attract not only its regular worshipers but also the new visitors from the nearby military stations of the Indian Army and the Indian Air Force through its regular Sunday Mass as well as its annual Good Friday, Easter and Christmas programmes.

Though the Sunday Mass was begun initially in accordance with the Wesleyan Methodist traditions since the beginnings in 1881, it now follows the Church of South India liturgy as the Wesleyan Methodist Missionary Society (WMMS), the co-founders of the church, had unionized itself into the Church of South India that was formed on 27 September 1947 at the CSI–St. George's Cathedral, Chennai. Wesleyan Methodists form a substantial majority of the parishioners of the Diocese of Medak, wherease Anglicans form a very small minority; together they regard the Medak Cathedral as theirs and look to their Bishop for divine leadership.

Calcutta Theatre

The Calcutta Theatre or The New Playhouse, was an historic theatre in Calcutta (now named Kolkata) in India, founded in 1775. It was the second theatre in the city of Calcutta.

The first theatre in Calcutta, The Playhouse, was a modest local at the Lal Bazar, founded in 1756. It was replaced by the Calcutta Theatre, which was founded in 1775. It was situated near the Northern section of Clive Street and to the north of Writers Buildings, and built funded by the subscriptions sharers of one hundred rupees each. David Garrick of London recommended a Bernard Massinck or Massing to travel to India to take charge of the theatre. It became the leading theatre of Calcutta until the foundation of the Chowringhee Theatre, after which the two theatres became main rivals to each other. The theatre staged English plays in the English language by English actors. Initially , the theatre had an all male cast, with male actors doing the female roles, but after the foundation of the rival Chowringhee Theatre, which employed women, actresses where employed also at the Calcutta Theatre. In 1908, the building and the adjoining site was acquired by Gopi Mohan Tagore, who turned it into the New China Bazar.

Communist Party of India (Marxist–Leninist) Second Central Committee

The Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist) Second Central Committee [CPI (M-L) 2nd CC] is a political party in India. It emerged in 1973 when the pro-Charu Majumdar faction of the original CPI (M-L) got divided into pro and anti-Lin Piao groups. The CPI (M-L) 2nd CC represents the pro-Lin Piao stream. At present, the party is active in states like Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal.

The undivided CPI (M-L), the mother organization of CPI (M-L) 2nd CC, was formed in 1969 by the All India Coordination Committee of Communist Revolutionaries, which had actually split from the Communist Party of India (Marxist) in 1967 after a protracted course of inner-party struggle against revisionist and neo-revisionist deviations. The CPI (M-L), led by radical Communist leaders like Charu Majumdar, Saroj Dutta, Jagjit Singh Sohal and others, advocated armed struggle against parliamentary elections. They categorised India as a semi-feudal, semi-colonial state led by the comprador bourgeoisie and the feudal class under the dictates of imperialism and social-imperialism. From 1969 to 1972, the party fought the Indian state tirelessly by taking to the path of ‘Protracted People’s War’ of Mao Tse-tung and built up the struggles of Srikakulam, Kheri-Lakhimpur, Mushahari, Debra-Gopiballabhpur etc. In 1970 it organised its First Party Congress in Calcutta, West Bengal.

The CPI (M-L), however, could not continue with the struggle it had launched against the state and its alleged agents. After its general secretary's (Charu Majumdar) death on 28 July 1972 at Lal Bazar Police Custody in Calcutta, it got divided into different factions, one of which was pro-Charu Majumdar by nature. In 1973, after the 10th Congress of the Chinese Communist Party, the pro-Charu Majumdar CPI (M-L) became further divided into two groups, namely pro and anti-Lin Piao factions. Mahadev Mukherjee was the leader of the pro-Lin Piao group.The pro-Lin Piao faction organized its 'Second Party Congress' in December 1973 at Kamalpur, a Naxalite bastion in Hooghly-Burdwan district frontier. The Congress reaffirmed the programme of the undivided CPI (M-L), adopted at the first party congress in 1970, and paid red salutes to Lin Piao and Charu Majumdar. As soon as the Congress was over, the party launched a wave of weapon snatches, attacks on police, prison escapes and annihilation campaigns. By 1973-74 10 policemen in West Bengal were killed by the party and there were 39 incidents of gun snatching. But when the state machinery came down on the revolutionaries heavily, the party had to face a serious setback. Most of the leaders were either incarcerated or killed. The reorganisation process, therefore, began after August 1977 when the detainees were released.In September 1978, as a result of the annihilation of a landowner at Manihari in Katihar district of Bihar, the Central Committee got divided between Mahadev Mukherjee and his supporters on the one hand and the hardliner section of the party led by Ajijul Haque and Nishit Bhattacharya on the other. After Mahadev Mukherjee's expulsion Haque and Bhattacharya assumed leadership and reorganised the party. They named it CPI (M-L) 2nd CC as a continuation of the Central Committee that was elected in the Second Party Congress (Kamalpur) in 1973. During Haque and Bhattacharya's tenure, that is between 1978 and 1982, CPI (M-L) 2nd CC formed a provisional revolutionary government in the rural areas of North and South Bengal and in the struggle zones of Bihar. The 2nd CC leadership installed a number of revolutionary committees in these areas and built up the embryo of proletarian dictatorship under the guidance of the People's Liberation Army. Later, however, after a series of clashes with the state, both Haque and Bhattacharya were arrested. They were subsequently expelled from the party due to Haque signing a cease fire deal with the government of West Bengal. After their expulsion 2nd CC gradually became a dying force. Despite a number of efforts, the new leadership could not raise the level of struggles. On 19 May 2003 a part of the party merged with the Maoist Communist Centre of India. It had to withdraw its pro-Lin Piao stand for the merger to go through.The Basic Standpoints of CPI (M-L) 2nd CC are as follows:

(1) It believes that it is the only genuine heir of the undivided CPI (M-L) that was formed on 22 April 1969 by Charu Majumdar and his comrades.

(2) It takes Marxism-Leninism-Mao Tse-tung Thought and Charu Mazumdar’s Politics as its theoretical guideline.

(3) It believes that this is the era of imperialism and proletarian revolution in which imperialism is heading for total collapse and socialism is advancing, despite temporary setbacks, to worldwide victory.

(4) It maintains that India is a semi-feudal and semi-colonial country based on Neo-colonial nature of exploitation.

(5) It rejects the parliamentary path for the whole of this strategic period and advocates the path of armed agrarian revolution by waging a successful People’s war—encircling cities with villages as shown by Mao and Lin Piao.
