In The Untold Story Of India’s Maoist Movement, Rahul Pandita presents his decade-long study of the Indian Maoist movement in all its harsh, unvarnished reality.
The narrative begins with the ideological union of a handful of people, both men and women, that led to the establishment of a guerrilla base in Bastar, Central India, in 1980. These people with the idea of revolution in their minds, created a powerful movement that sought to fight the Indian establishment on behalf of the country’s poverty-stricken and marginalized citizens. The movement, which subsequently morphed into what is termed the Maoist movement, is now firmly entrenched in ten Indian states, and is perceived as the biggest threat to India’s internal security.
The book provides powerful and in-depth insight into the Maoist movement, including a tremendous amount of information on the goals of the movement, its recruitment process, its party structure, the lives of its members, and the functioning of its squads. It is backed by the author’s research which stems from his conflict-reporting experiences and interviews with numerous Maoist leaders. From the story of the first member who died for the cause, to the work of its top leaders like Kobad Ghandy, Anuradha Ghandy, and Ganapathi, the book highlights the lives of the Maoists and their dedication to the cause.
The Untold Story Of India’s Maoist Movement was first published in 2011 by Westland / Tranquebar Press. It has garnered critical acclaim for its unflinching analysis of India’s Maoist movement in the backdrop of firsthand reportage straight from the guerrilla camp.
