These superstructures are feudal in nature. In the coming days, as the movement picks up, the gods will catch cold and begin to shiver and sneeze.
These ruling class superstructural institutions will openly take sides against the popular struggle. They will do their best to counter the movement, even invoke gods. Their colour will be exposed.
They will not only stand with the enemy but will demonstrate that they are themselves part of the enemy. This will provide the objective basis for isolating them from the masses."

Pejawar Math to work in naxal areas
Bangalore: The Udupi Pejawar Math is conducting a survey in the naxal-affected regions of Karnataka to take up education and welfare programmes, said Visvesha Theertha Swamiji.
Speaking to presspersons here on Tuesday, he said that the survey is expected to be completed within a month and the nature of the programmes will be based on the requirements of people.
The swamiji also announced that the math plans to open hostels for poor children in various parts of Karnataka with a target to help 10,000 children within the next five years.
The hostels, which will provide 33 per cent reservation to Dalit and backward classes each, will serve the dual purpose of providing children Hindu “dharma samskara” and educational opportunities. Work on the hostel in Udupi is under way. There was support for this project from the leaders of all major political parties, he added.
While welcoming the decision to ban proselytising in Tirupati and Tirumala and other religious centres, the swamiji said that the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams Board, with other religious organisations, will take up various projects to propagate Hinduism.
