The Folds of Insurgency

A P Maheshwari (Author)

The mid-fifties of the twentieth century witnessed a web of conflicts that led to the emergence of separatists and insurgent elements in the north-eastern state of Assam. The disturbances and the influx of Bangladeshis gave rise to the apprehensions in the minds of the Assamese that they would be overwhelmed by the sea of humanity flooding their territory. The book, through an intriguing story format, delves deep into those long ignored issues that have assailed the local inhabitants of Assam. The author has brought to notice the malaise that ails these local inhabitants, the simple souls who assiduously welcomed strangers into their fold. The series of distortions emerging from the multi layered impact of history, demography and the cross-cultured confluence, notwithstanding the economic interests, get reflected in the violence that eludes all initiatives to spread peace and harmony. The book depicts the lifestyle that is drawn between the pulls and pressures of the sovereign and the subdued. When insurgency fans out of the house, it stands witness to the ploys and maneuvers of a hordes of players, all in the game with varying levels of stakes and the consequential trade offs. The book also makes deep inroads into the psyche of the soldiers fighting the insurgency, reflecting upon their fragmented human emotions.
