Fidel Castro , former Cuban President , Dies at 90

Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz, the father of Communist Cuba dies.

Fidel Castro, Ex-Cuban president , has died this is according to state Media reports, he ruled Cuba from 1959 to 2008 when he handed power to his brother Raul Castro who is the current Cuban president. He was initially the Prime Minister of Cuba till 1976 and then president till 2008.

Let Fidelism be a philosophy and Castroism be an ideology to be studied from today .

Cuba is an Island off the the United States state of Florida coast. Fidel Castro is regarded as the father of Communist Cuba and ruled the Island for half a century, the longest serving president in the world.

His brother the current president of Cuba, Raul Castro termed his as ''the commander in chief of the Cuban revolution,''

The former Cuban leader has twice been said to have died ,by the Cuban media but this time time its the brother who announces the death on state tv, his elder brother Ramon Castro died this earlier this year , while his younger brother is in Power as the current leader of the Cuban people.


He was a revolutionary and a politician , a communist revered by some and reviled my some, he lived a life in controversy with the west and has his achievements and failures in his country and abroad, he inspired others in African and Asia while he made strides in his political ideology and he once said, 

''they talk about the failure of socialism but where is the success of capitalism in Africa , Asia and Latin America''-

Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz

He lived what he saw and the pain of the past haunted him and thus he wanted to make the best of what he knew, he was revolutionary who lived by his words and thus the quotes shows the mind of a man who was determined to change the ways of what he went through , as a revolutionist or a revolutionary leader we have seen what the world has gone through since the Arab revolution infamously know as the Arab Spring , the rise of modern leaders and the bitterness that people have over the systems of the worlds , Africa is rising and the youth are the ones to take back the countries which has been pegged by leaders who have remained in power for long , its a place that Cuban revolutionary had his heart and he inspired a generation in his time.

With his ideology in mind, in modern time thought we have been brainwashed with modern ideologies which haven't solved the underlying problems , we have have a scheme afoot as young leaders to change and not being leaders tomorrow but leaders of today.We cant afford to hate and kill , we cant afford to steal and be corrupt but we have to rise to the challenges beforehand and take the best of communism , socialism ,Gandhian philosophy and  capitalism, to make a great path for the future generations. 

Lest we forget what Fidel Castro once stated,

''a revolution is a struggle to the death between the future and the past''

we have to have a better struggle for posterity and ensure the world remains safe, peaceful and have a better air to breath and safeguarding the environment , sustainability is the key. 

 The books that Fidel wrote has lesson to learn from the past the future of Communism and Fidelism whose works remains controversial to some and lessons to others , as he departs from this earth, we have lived , we have struggled , and hope we will live and we will rejoice in the end of second life. 

A lesson from Castroism and his advocacy , his struggles and thus his philosophy.
