Socialist Leader and Writer

Sunil (1960-2014), national general secretary of Samajwadi Jan Parishad and editor of Samyik Varta, breathed his last at New Delhi’s AIIMS hospital on 21 April 2014. Sunil will be remembered for long as one of the most inspiring socialist activists, ideologues and writers whose high ideals were fully in harmony with his living practice.

Most of the struggles in which Sunil (he never used his surname) was involved were rooted in Hoshangabad district of Madhya Pradesh, although he contributed to many wider social movements. He was a founder member and coordinator of the Kisan Adivasi Sangathan, which has been in the thick of many struggles of tribals in that area. While fighting relentlessly against exploitation, injustice and displacement, Sunil played a leading role in the progress of Tawa Matsya Sangh, a cooperative of fisherfolk which rapidly emerged as a model cooperative.
