The main accomplished and least partisan account of Maoists written in fresh years
How did Chhattisgarh develop into India’s ‘biggest inner defense threat’? How did it develop into the epicentre of the Maoist uprising? Why did the backbenchers—the quiet adivasi classmates from the author’s school—turn into the nation’s ‘biggest terrorists’?
In this passionate quest to determine what ails the failing middle of India, Subharanshu Choudhary spent seven years with enormous quantities of Maoists, asking probing questions in any respect degrees in their hierarchy to meticulously piece jointly the tales of those hunted males and women.
At the centre of this awesome account is the enigmatic Vasu—at as soon as comrade and insurgent, buddy and stranger. by means of telling his tale, Choudhary destroys many stereotypes to flesh out a layered portrait of the misunderstood Maoist.
