by Arundhati Roy

Last month, quietly, unannounced, Arundhati Roy decided to visit the forbidding and forbidden precincts of Central India’s Dandakaranya Forests, home to a melange of tribespeople many of whom have taken up arms to protect their people against state-backed marauders and exploiters. She recorded in considerable detail the first face-to-face journalistic “encounter” with armed guerrillas, their families and comrades, for which she combed the forests for weeks at personal risk.

We need to come together to take advantage of this remarkable event: that a writer of this skill and stature has dared (and truly risked) to speak the truth about the revolutionary people of remote rural India. Help her. Help them.

Kasama Press is making no profit from the sale of this pamphlet. The cost here represents precisely the cost of production and shipping.
