NOT the Tribal's, befriending the forests to save their lives…
The article in outlook: http://www.outlookindia.com/article.aspx?264738
You come out in the open, the CRPF is gonna take you down. You go to hide in the forests, the Maoists are waiting to brain wash and make you one of their own. Where do you hide, what do you do.. What exactly has become of your life in this so called democratic nation ?
I can NOT agree on the fact that Maoists or Naxals or whatever they are called are saints and are Indian Robin Hoods.. They, unlike the corporations which exploit with the help of the Government, are making hay while the sun still shines by exploiting those rights that were refused to the tribals since freedom to this country.
Arundhathi Roy, in my opinion has nothing benefitting her by cooking up stories.. She has stated facts and it is hard for us to digest it because, we are becoming draconian, corporate oriented.. We have more time for the IPL team points and Saas Bahu rather than our own country. We are not ready to accept the fact that we are no different from Sri Lanka’s approach towards the Tamils..
Geez, people want the IAF to bomb and destroy Maoists to roots.. Fellow Indians, the tribals are own country men. Lend them your ears..
Forget the exaggerated comments the media makes… Forget the the Maoists, the Naxals, and their history all along since 1967. See their point is what I’d ask..
The problem with these tribals is they don’t understand greed. Unless they become greedy, there’s no hope for us. I have told my boss, remove the force and instead put a TV in every home. Everything will be automatically sorted out
These are exactly the words of a SP in Roy’s article… We are no different from what the US is doing in the Middle East.. But alas, we are a step ahead- we are doing this in our OWN home..
No hope for us to exploit this corporate haven. All those MoUs signed are going to be effective only if these poor tribals are moved out.. Mr War COE states that the life style of the tribals have to improve- What by waging a war on them ?
It is disheartening to see the news, people and media discuss so much about Sohaib, Sania and IPL and not the 73 odd CRPF jawans who died in vain because of the War CEO Chidambaram’s arrogant approach.. Well, we all pay tax and we all know that most of it goes nowhere.. I read a tweet from @Online_Florist that stated 250 of the 600 districts of India are under the Naxals and like always, media has time only for IPL and masala.. Real Journalism is rare to find. Corporate and Ready-Made news is what we all get to read/ see.
The media will continue down this path and be successful. All the average Indian thinks he can do is have *hope* that things will change.. AR’s mother thinks India needs a revolution.. Well, it should have happened long back and the reason it is not happening is well, ask your hearts and we all know the answer very well than anyone else..
There is no hero, there is no savior.. We are on our own.. IF we are a weakling, we die.. it is the survival of the fittest and we are NOT that..
I could go on talking about the discrimination, the differences, etcetera. The real thing is inside us.. We are letting ourselves to be westernized and we are going to lose every battle until we starting caring for fellow Indians
