Le for a movement to survive for so long only on good intentions So who are the masterminds Vivek Agnihotri claims he has done xtensive research to unearth the links between political parties Naxals corrupt government officials t al who xploit the adivasis However since mainstream media is silent on this he says he has relied on private blogs and interviews the details of which are very sketchy in the book We just have to Naxalism is uite real ugly and bloody But how has it survived Crown of Stars (Crown of Stars, even after 70 years of independence withwithout any help is what Vivek Agnihotrixplores in his movie Buddha in a traffic jam Do give the movie a shot too This book is about conceptualizing making of this movie and its release in the course of which the author unveils the bloody Naxal racket spreading its tentacles in the country It is no associated with what it started and naxals are now no less than terroristsAgnihotri ji not only xplores but also busts the nexus that s running amongst Naxals artisans intelligentsia and academicians with news articles and detailed discussion with students around India The highest level of intolerance that the leftists and communists show the xtreme venom and hatred towards anything positive the xploitation of FoE the resort to violence whenever faced with facts on face these are almost unbelievable and you have to actually read through the vents that occurred during screening of the movie to believe theseAgnihotri ji also correctly judges the media so called seasoned opinion makers and intelligent folks of India Since long they were the ones whose voices were heard They could set and disrupt a narrative according to their own This country was just a property of theirsThey first lost this power corridor in Gujarat turned venomous against we all know who With the advent of social media they lost their relevance too And if that was not the last nail in their coffin they lost power corridor nationwide once Modi became PM The banning of their monetary sources Ie the NGOs and a drastic drop down in Naxal activities unprecedented surrendering of Naxal radicals are now shifting their ground beneathHe is bang on when he says that there are many Indias within an India And no India has any clue about ground realities of any other India But inspire of that the country survived and is still surviving The last section of the book unfolds and deals This Forsaken Earth extensively on the leftist racket of this country than the other sections So if you are an impatient reader pls pls do read at least the 4th section of this bookFacts are facts no matter if people like them or not no matter if it is popular with people or not Recommended On the face of it this book is a memoir of how the author directed and screened a world changing movie beating all the oddsThis book is full of SHIT Is the author schizophrenic He is imagining things which don txist He has this weird philosophy that NaxalitesMaoists have planted their members in cities in the form of intelligentsia such as professors activists and they will soon revolt against the nationEither the author wrote the book when he was high or he is just plain stupidAnd the book is basically a rant a rant against Leftists A rant against Bollywood A rant against basically anyone who doesn t support or agree with the authorFull of negativityIf the author discards his conspiracy theory and fulminations against those who don t help himagree with him he is actually a good writer I am pretty sure he can write a world changing fiction novel if he decides to write one The Field Guide to Naxals and Naxalism As all nationalist Indians know Naxalism is a disease like rabies which has no cure once it reaches the acute stage According to the The Summer Palace: A Captive Prince Short Story (Captive Prince Short Stories Book 2) experts on the malady people infected with it run around killing honest and upright citizens So all of us have to bextremely vigilant in discovering the infections and getting the people treatedThe people of India were under the impression that this was a historical scourge like smallpox and has been practically radicated Not so The brilliant filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri has discovered an xtremely virulent strain called Urban Naxalism and is in the process of Campfire eradicating it totally As my mite towards this laudableffort I am in the process of compiling this field guide to the various strains of the disease1 Original Naxalism This is the original strain having its genesis in the village of Naxalbari in Bengal and subseuently flowing over to the high ranges of Kerala It has been all but radicated or made benign2 Rural Naxalism The origin of this disease is said to be the ruthless xploitation of the adivasis and farmers by landlords and business men but official sources deny it and fix the blame on Mao and seditious literature Whatever be the case it is mostly under control with only sporadic outbreaks in certain areas3 Urban Naxalism This Hurrah For The Blackshirts!: Fascists and Fascism in Britain Between the Wars extremely virulent strain has been undiscovered until now when as I said before Mr Agnihotri did the yeoman service of bringing it to the notice of the public What is frightening is almost all of our intellectuals barring a few like him seem to in various stages of infection He says 40% of India is infected The nation has to think of methods ofradication on war footing one suggested remedy it seems is submitting the affected continuously to an Arnab Goswami harangue until they recantNow there are three suspected strains of this malady which has Adam Smith: An Enlightened Life escaped Mr Agnihotri s notice which I would like to highlight4 Online Naxalism This is virulent on social media One can see people running rampant and infecting the unsuspecting left and right The only way to control this is for the authorities to deploy online police who will monitor web content 24 x 75 Expat Naxalism This is variety of online Naxalism but the affected person will be sitting outside India Here the online police cannot do much as thexpat may be sitting in Europe or the USA where another virulent malady called freedom of Crazy Love expression has made anyxtremist disease untreatable The best we can do is police the airports and pick these people up the moment they set foot in India6 Thought Naxalism This is the most dangerous variety as it will be dormant in the person s mind and he she can be treated only based on symptoms which include 1 Widespread reading of leftist literature 2 Refusal to acknowledge religious superstition 3 A tendency to speak up for the underprivileged Annual Editions: Technologies, Social Media, and Society etc The problem is thatven with all these symptoms the person may not be a Naxal but that is a chance one has to takeThe treatment for the last three is also the same as the one suggested for Urban Naxalism There is a chance that the person may pass away due to the intensity of the treatment but that is a risk we may have to take Urban Naxals by Vivek Agnihotri A Gripping and Powerful Back Story of an Unusual MovieI have known Vivek for over four years through Twitter of which I have known him well last two years having met him several times in person He has made ad films and movies he is a social media celebrity and he has written a book now Across all these pursuits a common theme is that Vivek is an xcellent raconteur When you talk to Vivek time fliesReading Urban Naxals is xactly like talking to Vivek face to face It is as if he is speaking to you in flesh and blood and is passionately xplaining his xperience and his point of view on a movie which is clearly very close to his heart Urban Naxals the book is Black Heart, Red Ruby everything that Vivek is in person straightforward direct well meaning andxpansiveAlthough Vivek has talked about his book as recounting of how he made Buddha In. Ils plans for an overthrow of the State Urban Naxals act to amplify their message serve as recruiters and wage a propaganda war through social and conventional media This gripping story recounts Agnihotri's own grooming in College to be an Urban Naxal and details the
A Traffic Jam the book is actually much than that Urban Naxals actually covers five key lements nicely interwoven in a gripping readThere s of course the making of the Buddha In A Traffic Jam on a shoestring budget at a time which was professionally tough for Vivek The pains that he had to go through to make a politically charged movie going against the grain of accepted talking heads wisdom comes through very clearly and openly The book xplains the hardships Vivek faced not just to fund the movie but also to actually shoot it He has also New Plant Parent: Learn the Ways of Plant Parenthood explained the story behindach Dreaming Me: An African-American Woman's Buddhist Journey episode in the movie which comes across as very thoughtfulVivek s own life story and personal beliefs on a range of subjects uite well knit in the story line That he has had personalxperience at the fringes of the Naxal movement shows abundantly in the book As Vivek s Twitter followers know he has strong opinions on a variety of sociopolitical topics His views on a range of subjects from life s philosophy to where India is headed as a country show up prominently and honestly through the book He has not been afraid to name people who he likes dislikes and abhorsBut this book is uite important on two other countsThere is a great archival value of this book to understand the underbelly of the Naxal movement Vivek has clearly put in reams of research on the subject of how Naxal movement has spread its wings across the country His movie and book aside he can rightfully lay a claim to be one of the foremost subject matter xperts on this topic The book portrays how a seemingly rural uprising against localized ills has actually become a complex top down national network of interwoven anti government and anti India ideas At the heart of this complex web of hatred lies the real desire to stablish an armed militia dictatorship in the name of saving the marginalized and the downtrodden Vivek s book is uite helpful for anyone not familiar with the subject to understand the financial and the control dynamic of the Naxal movementVivek also ЯED explains through his personalxperience how Bollywood is basically a big cliue of self serving interests and bloated gos Urban Naxals describes the conomics of movie making and how strong patronage networks can sabotage or derail any project at their whims and fancies The sad part of this view of Bollywood is that people who market themselves as the champions of new unsupported and variegated voices are almost always at the forefront of shutting or ignoring these voices in direct contrast to their carefully contrasted public personas Although we have always known that all that glitters is not gold Urban Naxals reminds us that all that glitters is not worthy of undying unconditional love and adulationThe fifth and the last aspect of the book deals with the troubles Vivek had to go through to release his movie The movie directly and brutally confronts the popular Bollywood idea of government being the prime oppressor of villagers and adivasis and Naxals being their saviours This truth was too much for his financiers and potential distributors to digest The Lost Art of Reading Natures Signs either due to ideological reasons or due to their inability to upset their business networksVivek thus adopted a uniue social media led marketing approach to take the movie to this audience He toured dozens of prominent universities tongage students and to warn them of the Moreno enemy within the Naxal recruitment agents they deal withvery day Several such screening Monsieur Pain episodes led to acrimony and physical danger for Vivek most notably in Hyderabad and Kolkata Through thesexperiences of screening movies for students Vivek also brings out real life A Spark of Light: the fearless new novel from the Number One bestselling author examples of anxtreme left academia controlling the mental conditioning of India s new generationVivek was incessantly mocked by his critics mostly who had not seen the movie for making a substandard product This book puts this criticism in perspective A movie crew working on a budget of 15 crores only with no money to pay market rates of any What If established actors and just one month window to shoot a movie with non standard technicaluipment was compared with regular studio led Bollywood offerings and panned Although Vivek has tried The Exhaustion Breakthrough explaining this aspect many times on Twitter and confronted his critics the starkness of the mountain of backlash he was against comes through strongly and grimly in this bookMuch of what Vivek has described in his movie has already played out in real life in the last couple of years Student led movements have attempted to disrupt the government and hijacked media discussions for weeks atnd Prominent names from with academia and social welfare groups have been linked with The Exhaustion Breakthrough: Unmask the Hidden Reasons You're Tired and Beat Fatigue for Good elements fanning social disharmony and caste schisms across India Recently these names haveven been arrested in some cases for actively plotting to create social unrestIn the last four years since he took to social media to promote his movie Vivek has singlehandedly Supplemental Book established a narrative space on the dangers of Naxalism in India This book is a perfect culmination and a vivid documentary compilation of that process Many Indians are today aware of thenemy lurking around them through Vivek s works and understand the crucial role of academia in shaping political behaviour much betterBut above all this book coins the Hark!

I read this book in one day Its been ages to complete any book in one day This book is really an ye opener for me in many levels This book La strada delle croci exposes the reality of the blood money behind the intellectual mafia ruling Indian Media and popular discourse Exposes how criminals are ruling the roost in India wearing a mask of human rights women s right and various NGOs I am not sayingvery NGOs are corrupted there are some who used NGOs to bypass the money or agenda Not only terrorist are brainwashed in this book you can see how ducated normal citizen are brainwashed to the core You can also find how professor and students are brainwashed It also xposes how communistleftistbreaking India ideology has infiltrated our The Ballad of Dorothy Wordsworth educational institutions like termites for decades and how their narrative is supported by the sold out media Earlier I used to think Naxals or communist are very few in numbers After reading this book i realized that these hypocrites are in large numbers invery urban and they never want any development or upliftment for society For them only their purpose should be solved There seems to be a self destructive strand among sections of India that makes them actively court and woo forces that are inimical hostile to or want to dismember whatever is left of the Indian ness component in the Indian state Like Sandeep Balakrishna beautifully said Perhaps jungle Naxalism is no longer reuired we now have two and half generations of Naxals in our cities and towns who are thoroughly brainwashed that they don t ven realise that they ve have been brainwashedHats off to the boldness of Author Vivek Agnihotri The book gives an account of a filmmakers ncounter with radicalism in urban India Everyone should read it I don t give a damn when some people give negative reviews about this book Read the book then judge it Many will review it without Pretty Reckless (All Saints High, even reading it Must read This is a book to buy read gift discuss and comprehend Such a book comes once in a lifetime One of the most serious reads i have read till datePages are full of dense texts and facts that you may never know if you have not read the bookHats off to the boldness of Author Vivek AgnihotriThe book is a newsy account of a filmmakersncounter with radicalism in urban IndiaThe book is about the urban naxals who Vivek Agnihotri s book is ostensibly a memoir of the making of his film Buddha in a Traffic Jam and the trials and tribulations that went with it In actuality it is a conspiracy theory about a large underground network of left wing xtremists cleverly manipulated and controlled urban intellectuals the so called Urban Naxals located all over India but mainly in the metros The kingpins are the college professors specially the ones in anti national institutions like the JNU They do The West Transformed everything from recruiting vulnerable students to providing funds to the gun totingxtremists in the jungles of Bastar through NGOs who are in India specifically for the purpose of breaking the country up and destroying its democracy to be replaced with a totalitarian communist government If police and other sources are to be believed the Naxalites with the help of Dalit youths and the Islamist terrorist group Indian Mujahedeen IM want to have their own government in the country by 2025 The revolution will merge from the conflict of Hindus on one side and Dalits and Muslims on another Two consolidated rebellious nergetic forces pumped with raw adrenaline will go for ach other s blood And then it will be opportune to hijack and change the narrative to oppressed proletariat and marginalized vs bourgeoisie lites and Brahmins This attracts poor and intellectuals both In this case the Adivasi Dalits Muslims and other forgotten people united under one common red flag will demolish the State That s the ambition And they also have a plan Agnihotri says that the Naxals are linked to Kashmiri insurgents the militants in the Northeast and other sundry terrorist groups from India and abroadAs an aside the book also Paper Chasers engages in a political diatribe against the Left the Congress the AAP and whoever have the temerity to oppose the author s idol Narendra Modi and his brand of development He isspecially intent on bashing Nehru and Sonia GandhiNehru judged history and filtered it to what should be told to an independent India and what should be hidden He made sure that the history reinforced his ideology and made him look like a hero His daughter Indira Gandhi and later her daughter in law Sonia Gandhi tuned our history to further their political agendas In independent India only a certain kind of narrative is allowed the one that suits the ruler s agendaNote the point your honourAlso thisAnother reason for such high concentration of intelligentsia in Delhi is that all central research and policy agencies are here and these agencies were used by the Congress government to The Complete Polly and the Wolf employ intellectuals and use them to give an ideologicalndorsement to their political narrative Since Sonia Gandhi s politics align with the left it is but natural that most of these people are Naxal sympathizersIt does take a stretch of imagination to see Sonia Gandhi nurturing Naxal sympathisers but then making movies is all about the imaginationThe book is divided into four sections 1 Buddha is Born about how the movie was conceived 2 In Search of Buddha about the background research for the story 3 The Making of the Buddha about the development and shooting of the movie and 4 The Struggle of the Buddha about the trials and tribulations that the director went through to release it However it is not straightforward narration The story moves back and forth in time and space and is interspersed with Agnihotri s long winded and VOYAGES DE GRANDE CROISIERE extremely boring lectures on thevils of socialism and communism about

country are brainwashed and recruited into Naxalism by none other than their professors cleverly distributed among the hotbeds of leftist insurgency such as surprise surpise The Jawarharlal Nehru University and other such liberal institutions which don t toe the nationalist line These intellectuals are also responsible for collecting funds from forces inimical to the Indian State through NGOs set up for the special purpose Everyone including the mainstream media seem to be aware of this but apparently keep uiet for some mysterious reason And the Naxals running rampant in Bastar andlsewhere have only the single purpose of keeping the tribals poor by terrorising them and preventing all developmental activities For in the current India forging ahead on the path of development who has reason be a Naxal unless prompted by nefarious reasonsThere are no Zamindars today so who are they fighting in the tribal areas Why is it that after four decades of struggle neither have the rebels achieved their objective nor have the tribals been mpowered Why is the government not being able to stop this oppression Where do they get money from Are all those intellectuals who openly support the Naxal movement on national TV righteous people What is in it for them This is a movement being fought in jungles inhabited by wild animals snakes and the tribals is it possible for it to survive for
