INDIA'S FORGOTTEN WAR – blogging naxalism.

Book Plug- Red Sun

with 2 comments

images1Sudeep Chakravati is a Goa-based journalist who travelled across India speaking with Maoist fighters, poor villagers, sympathetic urban business men, and police and government officials. His account of the journey is a rich portrait of a movement which is clever and sophisticated and a government which often seems lethargic and outmaneuvered.

Written in an easy, narrative/journalistic style, Red Sun: Travels in Naxalite Country is an engaging and informative read.  It’s the single best book on Naxalism that I know of. Buy it.

  1. Just came across your blog via Wikipedia.

    It’s a relief to come across an unbiased blog on Naxalism. Keep up the great work.

    I’ve been pondering over buying Red Sun for a while; will pick it up soon now.

    Thanks.
