Untold Stories from Reds’ Hinterland

“ Untold stories from Reds’ Hinterland” is a collection of human stories, especially of women and children in Eastern Bihar hinterlands which once were under the strongholds of Maoists. All the stories are based on true events and reflect how life was challenging there. Forgotten and forsaken, the region gives Nelson’s eye to the modern world, that was a lost civilization, gradually being wiped out, never to return. Years of neglect by the state machinery have made even ordinary folk hostile and suspicious. Stepped in poverty and illiteracy the villagers are today a disillusioned lot, some becoming markedly pugnacious and the others seeking refuge in Maoist ideology. The indifference and apathy of not a few district officials was shocking, to say the least. Barely handfuls were genuinely interested in the implementation of various government sponsored welfare projects.
