Have to swim against stream

Today, the common man is totally puzzled with the all-round attack of capitalist newspapers, magazines, radio, doordarshan and a dozen cable channels. Not only that big and medium capitalists and their friendly bureaucratic government have a strong hold over Newspaper, press, publication industry, electronic media of our country but now big media monsters of imperialist countries have also taken control of a large section of media industry.
Today, to carry new ideas and culture at the door step of every common man for bringing mass social change has not only become compulsory but arduous also. Pro people paper and magazines with their scarce resources and uncompromising nature are fighting for their existence at every step. The quota facility for advertisements and stationery provided by the Government in the name of promotion to small papers and magazines are going to those papers only which are engaged in yellow journalism and blackmailing. Journalists attached to papers that are working for people without compromising are being victimized legally & illegally, both the way, by the Government which always outcry for freedom of speech and making all possible efforts to close those papers.
Imperialist countries having monopoly over the news-world with their news agencies & TV channels are also trying their level best to control/direct our minds. They have already started their victorious campaign for monopoly on news and false cultural publicity. The campaign to bring the whole world under new system of globalization has been started in a organized way by the western publicity agencies and in spite of some internal disputes, ruling class of our country has also associated itself with them. Today we are reading, seeing and listening what these imperialist/capitalist thugs and their system want us to do. Majority of public is confined into the world of ignorance, incomplete information and wrong information. Moreover, their mind is being made dull by the dozes of materialistic, profit oriented autocratic culture of imperialism/capitalism. Today even our children are also suffering from the infectious disease of cultural pollution. In view of this, today it the basic duty and responsibility of all the revolutionary powers and vigilant, progressive, pro-people intellectuals to give the proper and correct information of the situation to public and by taking, public into confidence should weave a strong thread of publication and publicity of pro-people literature and use of different mediums of art – from drama, music to video films. There is a need of clarion call for a totally new, revolutionary renaissance and enlightenment on cultural front through these mediums. Ruling class is using its information system to the fullest to maintain the current system. Now public has to use this information system as a weapon in struggle for change in system. Keeping in view these points, publication division of Rahul Foundation and its associate publication Parikalpana is continuously publishing important literary and political books. Computer division of Rahul Foundation is engaged in helping for printing of all types of pro-people, progressive and revolutionary literature for the last few years. Not only that regular sale centres are operating in Gorakhpur and Lucknow for distribution of literature, posters of poems, stickers, cassettes, but literary exhibitions are also being organized in many cities and towns and schemes for bringing literature at every home are being carried out by its associate institution, Janchetna since last 21 years. Its just a beginning of a very long journey. But formation of revolutionary media of public and a new cultural movement will start from here only. We, not only need your significant cooperation but active participation to complete this task.
