Devouring news in papers, TV and internet in no way guarantees us the Truth. The only way to arrive at the Truth is to be either in it or arrive at it logically. Moreover, many a times, there is no truth, no right or wrong; it’s just a matter of which side of the line you are on.

No resistance can survive without the support of people. It is easy to say that a few thugs with guns are holding the country to ransom. The fact is locals in this vast area spread across central and south-eastern India support these few thugs else they’d have been finished long time back.

If a huge population supports them, then there’s got to be a reason and logic for it. People don’t just go and support a cause unless there is something in it for them. Tribals may not know how to read and write but then Education has no relation to Intelligence. Tribals know what is good for them and what is not.

First the government needs to have the right intentions and should not be corrupt. Actually this is where it ends. But let’s assume for a second that government (read politicians) has right intentions for the welfare of its population. If this is the case then it needs to find the cause of the disease and not look so much into its symptoms which are obvious. Most likely the cause will turn out to be a fault with the corrupt and malicious governance.

Forget about Arundhati and what her agenda is. Instead of arguing over the message we are arguing whether to shoot the messenger or not!
