Naxalbari and After

Naxalbari and After IN his discourse (September 16) Debal K Singha Roy has analysed the question of empowerment of rural women from the perspective of the peasant movements in West Bengal. Two radical peasant movements the Tebhaga and the Naxalite movements were given special attention. He has correctly argued that the revolutionary zeal of the Naxalbari movement was followed by reformist measures on the agrarian front in course of time. It should be mentioned here that though the Naxalbari movement started as a peasant uprising in Darjeeling district of West Bengal, it look on the character of a broad social movement in India very soon. The legacy of the movement in the minds of the peasants and in the academic/state discourse can bean interesting area of study.
