An Interview with Rana Bose, a writer based in Canada. He discusses about the current situation in India, specifically the rising popularity of the Maoists and the re-emergence of the Naxalite movement – followed by details of the Indian Government’s reaction. For the past 25 years, independent local struggles have found common interest and united under the banner of Maoism, which can be seen as a renaissance of the Naxalite movement that the Indian government thought it had wiped out in the early 70s. The Maoists today are much more then just a movement. They have become a parallel government.
