CPM leader Subhashini Ali shares her memories of freedom fighter G Susheela
Idukki: CPM Politburo member Subhashini Ali remembered G Susheela, who she fondly called ‘Susheeledathi’ while sitting in front of her ancestral house Vadakkath at Anakkara here. The senior freedom fighter Anakkara G Susheela who passed away recently is a close relative of Subhashini Ali. Hearing the demise news of the relative, Subhashini Ali rushed to Vadakkath house on Friday.
Subhashini Ali is the daughter of Captain Lakshmi. Susheela’s mother and Subhashini's maternal grandfather were siblings.
“Susheeledathi looked after this house for six decades. She had the power to bind the family together even though the family members are settled in various parts of the world. Annually, each member of the family visits the house and family get-togethers were organised. Susheeledathi who was the captain of the ship used to organise the reunion of the family. I visited her for the last time in March during the election campaign.
