    Description
    | SHORTLISTED FOR THE ORWELL PRIZE FOR POLITICAL WRITING 2019, SHORTLISTED FOR THE KAMALADEVI CHATTOPADHYAY NEW INDIA FOUNDATION BOOK PRIZE 2019, AND LONGLISTED FOR THE TATA LITERATURE LIVE NON-FICTION BOOK OF THE YEAR 2019 | In 2010, just as the Indian government was stepping up its counterinsurgency operations in the country's Naxal-affected areas, Alpa Shah set out on a seven-night march with a guerrilla platoon across 250 kilometres of the same territory. An anthropology professor, she wanted to understand why, against the backdrop of a shiny new India, the country's poor had shunned the world's largest democracy and united with revolutionary ideologues. Dressed as a man in an olive-green guerrilla uniform, Alpa was the only woman and the only person not carrying a gun in the platoon. Her gritty journey reveals how and why people from very different backgrounds come together to take up arms to change the world but also what makes them fall apart. Unfolding like a thriller and brought to life by Alpa's years of research and immersion into the daily lives of the tribal communities in a Naxal stronghold, Nightmarch is a reflection on economic growth, rising inequality, dispossession and conflict at the heart of contemporary India.

    Terrific

    It's informative book. We get informed about Naxalites and their fight for human rights such as equality, standard employment and subsistence wages. But there is a contradiction obvious in this fight. Maoists attack state officials who are innocent. They are appointed Government and thus, having no personal enemity with Naxalites and Naxalites mutilate these officials without small portion of care. In fact, these Maoists create inaurgancies in state and wage a war against elections. They thin...
