A revolutionary icon, one of the world’s best-known and most controversial leaders, Fidel Castro passed away at 90. After surviving several assassination attempts by the US and premature obituaries, formal Cuba president proved mortal after suffering from prolonged illness.
The nation remained in shock though it was an expected statement considering his age and illness. Back in 2006, Castro underwent an emergency intestinal surgery and gave up power to his brother Raul. The Communist party has prepared for this moment, and Raul remains in charge till now. The comandante know as the figurehead of armed struggle across the developing world.
Opponents long awaited the news, and celebrations were triggered at Miami after Confirmation of his death. His loss left all the left-wing admirers across the world in deep sorrow. The moment was a great uncertainty for many Cubans who grew up in his shadow. The thing which remains eternal is the mark of this extraordinary figure in history.
Fidel Castro, The Follower and admirer of Ernesto Che Guevara (an Argentine Marxist revolutionary, physician, author, guerrilla leader, diplomat, and military theorist.) Fidel Castro well known for ”bearded ones” guerrilla army replaced the Fulgencio Batista’s corrupt dictatorship. His communist rule challenged the US and turned the island into a cold-war crucible.
After an official succeeding announcement of his brother Raul, he paved his authority while overseeing cautious economic reforms. Raul also made crucial deals in restoring the relation between the US and Cuba.
Fidel is irreplaceable, His greatest legacy is the free healthcare and education, which gave Cuba some of the best human development statistics in the region. He is also responsible for the blunders in central planning and oppressive government. His steps have choked the economy and left many Cubans in a lack of decent food and better living standards. Long before his passing, Cubans had started migrating to the US and an explosion of small private businesses.
The man who declared “history will absolve me” left the world. Left leaders from Latin America will grieve for his passing. Apparently, Fidel Castro is less of a communist figure and is a nationalist symbol and regional pride. His funeral is expected to witness numerous foreign heads of state, intellectuals, and artists.
