Shame Kerala,shame for showing poverty in humanity-Social Media takes up Madhu’s death

 
 
Attappadi comes to my mind again when I read the brutal killing of a poverty-stricken youth in the name of an alleged  theft. Whenever I log in social media , messages are pouring in…writes M.Rajesh
A.Madhu, 27-year-old tribal youth, accused of theft, was beaten to death by local mob at Kadukumanna in Attappady, yesterday.
Long back,I remember the days I went with my friend and photographer K.Rajagopal .
It was my beginning days of journalism.We visited many tribal homes (Adivasi Ooru) at Agali in Attappadi, that short visit.I wrote on the pathetic conditions of tribal folks,there.It was part of a journalism assignment.
I reported their poverty, ignorance,illiteracy,exploitation of Adivasis by outsiders including political agents and drug mafia.
The picture of the youth that spread viral on various digital media pulls me again to the hilly region of  Western Ghats,the banks of  Shiruvanippuzha (River Shiruvani) and Bhavanippuzha (River Bhavani) 
 
 Attappadi might have changed lot.Many project might have implemented for the welfare of tribal community.But,the lives of many tribal youths are still the same. Madhu’s picture haunts me again.
The first thing came into my mind is:
How can human beings (better call them beasts ) come in group and kill a fellow being who is so weak and even unable to resist any attack?
Who gave the right to kill a person,even if he is a thief?
Some media have released the final words of the youth,who said ,”I was kicked and brutally beaten by local people” .
Another shocking thought that is disturbing my mind is that where are the bureaucrats and political leaders and ruling parties to see the poverty of a young man?
Where are the officials in charge of poverty alleviation and tribal empowerment?
Still they are quickly implementing poverty alleviation from air conditioned offices?
Kerala is boasting of its development,quality of life  and quality of its people.
But,the dangerous thing is that people in group become “land lords” and even “powerful” to kill a fellow human being.
Mob psychology poses threat to individuals,especially for those who are voiceless-politically,socially or financially.
 
Poverty ,for those people who born with silver spoons in their mouth is just an unknown theory. Youth, who are being supported by mafia and political goons also unaware of the situation because they are being fed by political agents or corporate watchmen.
People,who are employed, and enjoy a sound family support also don’t get a chance to suffer poverty.And,more over it is God’s own country;here everything is fine.You can’t even find a hungry man until he is beaten to death by uncivilized beasts.
Here,people are perfect in show-offs,by hook or by crook.
And it is meaningless to teach those people who don’t experience poverty. Remember,there are many underprivileged people live ,surrounded by Kerala’s boasting comforts. They are part of our society,equally or more than these boasting ‘civilized’ vainglory.
Killing a youth and taking selfie is a wordless ,inhuman  cruelty.
But,the youth who was killed is rich…much  much richer than those beasts who eat well,drink well,dress well,and capture well the pictures of a dying,helpless human being.We need action.We need solutions for poverty,unemployment …and nobody should be allowed to take law by their own.
Social Media post are just signs,just images of our society.It is the reflection of developed Kerala.
Kerala,it is more than shame.
