It seldom happens that the story of an individual becomes so intertwined with the cause she or he stands for that it becomes impossible to separate the one from the other. Kanu Sanyal's is one such rare story: to read it is to relive the history of the Naxalite Movement, which the Indian establishments call the country's biggest internal security threat.

This book narrates the making of Kanu Sanyal right from his childhood to the days of the Naxalbari uprising and beyond. It delves deep into Sanyal's evolution as a Communist rebel and throws light on the various stages of the Naxalite Movement with relevant background information.

What is significant about this book is that this is the only authorised biography of Kanu Sanyal in any language-he personally read and cleared all its chapters but the last one, which deals with his aberrant demise.

MEDIA REVIEWS

This very readable book is a story of how that very Sanyal later embraced Marxism in its most extreme form - and went on to regret it later...this book meticulously unveils how Sanyal and his comrades built the CPI and later the CPI-M in Siliguri region that included Naxalbari.

-- Hindustan Times

The only book wherein the founder is himself narrating the story about the origin, progress, climax and present status of the movement. The book brings to light several hitherto unknown and startling facts of the Naxalite Movement.

-- The Echo of India

This informative book narrates the making of Sanyal right from childhood to the Naxalbari uprising and beyond. It goes deep into the evolution of Sanyal as a communist rebel and throws light on the various stages of naxalite movement.
