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.

Micro-narratives on Micro-finance : Parishad, LSG and USAID

Fantastic! Parishad musings on Kerala political economy again ! Parishad #KSSP demands termination of MP - MLA funds. Now why don't they object to the fund utilized by local self government (LSG) department and demand dissolution of LSG department? LSG works are supposed to be done by people's beneficiary committees but the beneficiary committees working in the name of the people are run by contractors or their hidden agents. Then why should this system of corruption be maintained ?

Micro financing is bad, now admits the admirers of Muhammad Yunus. Muhammad Yunus was made Nobel laureate as the genial pathfinder of micro-finance since the fact that Issac invented the same thing some decades back went unnoticed by the Swedish academics and overjoyed with all such subscription to their thesis the USAID arranged a Right Livelihood award to their darling Parishad.

At least Parishad would have demanded the termination of private micro-finance industry that loots the de-powered women as well as the public sector money. Since it is not at all the right livelihood, why can't Parishad conduct an auditing of their decentralization project? And report the matter to their paymaster that they have successfully ruined the economy of the state as they did it once at the end of the first phase of PLDP.
