• Ente Kuthippum Kithappum

The famous autobiography of Fr Joseph Vadakkan, the political activist priest, freedom fighter, and the founder of the political party known as Karshaka Thozhilali Party (KTP). Fr Vadakkan, popularly known as 'Vadakkanachan' organised many agitations and took part in protest marches, satyagrahas, and rallies. He was also arrested and jailed. He was reprimanded by his own Church.

While working as a young teacher, Joseph took part in the Quit India Movement by organizing teachers. The weekly Thozhilali (labourer) that he started later grew into a daily newspaper. When the Vimochana Samaram, an agitation against the first Communist ministry broke out in 1958, Vadakkanachan played a leading role. He initiated a movement called Anti Communist Front (ACF). However, he allied with communists like the A. K. Gopalan in some other agitations. Later, he organised struggles for the cause of settler farmers in Kerala and founded the KTP with B. Wellington as President.

Fr Vadakkan’s unconventional ways soon brought him into conflict with the Church. The Church disliked his alliance with the communists. Vadakkanachan conducted a Holy Mass in Thekkinkadu Maidan, in Thrissur, which led to controversy. He was suspended from conducting mass for 8 years, but remained a priest.
