    This is the first book, I read on Naxalites rebels and Maoist tribes in India, though I ve read scores of articles and columns on Adivasi s surrenders, encounters, and conflicts between them and the government But I hardly understood, why the things were happening the way they happened So, now you know, there was this peculiar interest in picking up this book.In 2010, an anthropologist, Alpa Shah, was invited for taking interview of the most senior leader of the guerrilla army This invitation extended to seven days long trek across the jungles from Bihar to Rajasthan, the central Indian areas of tribal and Adivasi people.The author accounts the journey of her stay with the Naxalites and Maoist guerrillas revealing their daily struggles, their existence, and the complexities of their life She also br...
