INDIA'S FORGOTTEN WAR – blogging naxalism.

As some of you may have noticed, it’s been some time since I’ve posted anything to India’s Forgotten War. I started my PhD this fall and as someone who’s been out of school for  number of years the adjustment process has taken up all of my time and energy. I’ve managed to settle into a routine and re-awakened long dormant skills such as reading ridiculous quantities of often dry, and always dense, academic texts in hyper-speed.

Events have been moving quickly on the Naxalite front. The situation in West Bengal continues to be highly unstable, the first battles of the government’s offensive in the forests of Central India have been fought and peace talks between Delhi and the CPI (Maoist) seem to be a slim possibility. In addition to this, the Maoists in Nepal have embarked on another push this week to try and topple the government in Kathmandu.

All of this adds up to a hell of a lot to write about. I hope that those who may have stopped following my blog will come back and I hope to continue to build my readers by continuing to deliver timely and non-partisan news and analysis on a story that is increasingly garnering both domestic and international media attention.
