There was a time when the leftist parties were swarming everywhere…literally anywhere.


National politics was incomplete without ones like Harkishen Singh Surjeet, Karat or Sitaram Yetchuri.   Television channel and print media were literally running behind these leaders.  Every word they uttered, whether significant or insignificant garnered unnecessary media coverage.  Too much of left… unbearably nauseating.


The ‘King Makers’, the ‘String Pullers’, the ‘Movers & Shakers’…. what a lot of adjectives to define the leftist alliance.


But what happened all of a sudden?  No where are they to be seen…..disappeared into thin air??


Suddenly no body seems to care about the left.  No media talks about them.   Yes, every now and then we hear about the left getting thrashing in their only strongholds of Kerala & Bengal.


It is real ‘shani dasha’ for the leftist forces not only in India, but across the globe.


The left has been left out…..


Not leftists anymore.  They are just the ‘LEFTOVERS’.
