The growing economic disparity in India is reviving the Maoist (communist) movement in the eastern part of the country. The government is cracking down on these groups with violence, and since its counterinsurgent operations inevitably hurt the poor as well as those involved in resistance movements, there is a fierce debate over whether the state is “waging war” on its own people. Tehelka, a Delhi-based magazine, has been following this conflict and is a good source of information about this and other social issues. When you’re traveling in eastern India – particularly Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, and Orissa – you should pay close attention to the news and stay off the roads at night to avoid being caught in a dangerous situation.
