50 Years of Naxalbari and Its Impact of on Indian society
NATIONAL SEMINAR ON 9Th &10TH of SEPTEMBER
Sundaraiah Vignana Kendram, HYDERABAD
The very word Naxalbari creates either fear or rays of hope, depending on which side you stand. The naxalite movement made an impact on the society at large and on the down-trodden in particular. It is unique in the long history of people’s struggles in India. It demarcated Indian history-India before Naxalbari and India after Naxalbari. It proved that a prolonged Peoples War is the only way to demolish the semi-feudal and semi-colonial society and replace it with New democratic society. With the slogan, power to the people, the Naxalite movement aims at New Democratic Revolution by liberating the villages from the clutches of semi feudal semi colonial hegemony and then surround the towns and capture them.
In Dhandakaranya it showed that an alternative development is possible with people holding the real power. In spite of brutal repression and facing a highly sophisticated armed state, Naxalite movement is marching ahead towards its goal of establishing non-exploitative society. One can find the sprouts of a new society emerging in the Dandakaranya region. Its impact is so wide spread that we cannot find no part of the society untouched, not merely Economic, political fields, but also Literary, Arts and cultural fields. It is time for us to gauge its impact, to analyze the revolutionary struggle, its victories, its ups and downs and also the challenges it faces.
The Revolutionary Writers Association invites you all to participate in the Seminar.
