Sri. Baby John – The harbinger of change.
Baby John (1917-2008) was an unusual public man.
Baby John was a socialist industrialist.
He embraced revolutionary socialism for the
betterment of the oppressed classes, but was
ever taking care to steer clear of anything that
tended to give his cause a face that was less
When, for example, there were no takers for an
invitation to join an innovative fishing project
in his native village, he ventured to bring in
capital and an abundance of enterprise. That
opened a new world of livelihood for thousands.
And that made an unusual public man.
