Mr. Mohan grew up in a communist family and became a full-time worker of the CPI. When his wife was carrying their first son, the Soviet Union disintegrated. Many commented that communism was dead. This upset Mr. Mohan.
He said, “In 1991, when the Soviet Union broke up, reports were
published that communism had come to an end. My wife was pregnant and I
was determined to name my first child Communism if it was a son.
Communism will not die until the human race exists. Hence, my first son
was named so. My second son was named Leninism in memory of Lenin.
Communism has to be established for socialism to take shape...”
The names of these men have shot to popularity thanks to the wedding invitation of their youngest brother - Socialism, who is a silversmith. The to-be bride's name has also caught people attention - as the invitation reads Socialism weds Mamata Banerjee.
The wedding that is to take place on Sunday, June 13th is expected to witness only about 50 persons in attendance, owing to Covid-19 restrictions on gatherings. CPI State Secretary is among the leaders expected to grace the occasion. And there’s a special young guest too - Marxism, Mohan’s grandson.
“Communism will be there till humanity is alive,” says Mohan, the proud father of three men.
