ABOUT THE BOOK

This multi-volume book should prove an important addition to the literature on the significant subject of Naxalism and Maoists insurrection in India. It all started in 1967 in the Darjeeling district of West Bengal and assumed serious proportions in 2004 when its two main factions of people's War Group and Maoist Communist Centre merged to create CPI (Maoist), which since then has been spear heading the movement in the country. The States and the governments at the centre have been fighting the scourge, achieving varying degrees of success at different stages. Former PM Manmohan Singh dubbed it as “the most serious internal security threat” to the nation's integrity and sovereignty in 2007. The Counter-Maoiststrategy has been hampered by two factors: One, avoidable debate on security versus development approach; and two, powerful support it gets from the Left-Liberal and Civil society groups and individuals who are infact Urban Maoists themselves. As of today, the LWE is blocking the development of Maoist-infected areas, so it is all the more essential that Maoists are eliminated as early as possible from the country. The NDA government’s Home Minister Rajnath Singh vowed to do so within five years and India is waiting for that.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Col. (Retd.) Ved Prakash, FRGS, PSC, was commissioned into the famed SIKH Regiment of the Indian Army in 1957. From the Dehradoon Military Academy, he was
posted to 3 SIKH, thence actively engaged in the Phizo-led Naga rebellion, then at its apogee! Thus he was blooded into the battle, leading his platoon against the brave Nagas. His second posting in the North-East was as the Commandant, 18, Assam Rifles, then operating against the Mizo insurgency ravaging the eponimous Hills. Yet again, as an happenstance, the Laldenga-led Mizo insurgency was at its virulent worst. The author had three tenures in Jammu and Kashmir, including two extended ones in the high altitude areas of Ladakh snow desert. Luckily, he got a chance to visit the Karakoram Pass in his first tenure in Ladakh. He has authored four books so far: The Samba Spy Scandal (1998); The Indian Army in Sri Lanka (2001); Five Volume book, Encyclopaedia of North-East India (2007) and Five-Volume book, Encyclopaedia of Terrorism in the world
(2011). He took part in the 1962, 1965 and 1971 wars, India fought against its neighbours. Let it be said here that all infantry officers of his vintage fought these wars, unless
some got to manage peace postings through 'contacts' ! His three tenures in the North-East enabled him to produce the magnum opus on the area, for which he was deservedly rewarded with the FRGS by the Royal Geographical Society London.
