Q.

The following is the words of a schduled tribe who is displaced from
his habitat for tea cultivation,
such were the bounties of our land,
so fearless was our existence,
our forest gave us everything,
now tea has taken over our lives,
too much has changed,
how can i speak of the old days
without tears
speaking as a human being are we not meted out great injustice to our schduled tribes by displacing them from their natural habatit? we are not giving any regard for them even on par with the animals of the wild and as a result they are forced to accept naxals as their saviour. your co

And my good comrade, may I ask from where "NAxals" showed up from? I am guessing the words that were spoken were from a first generation Tribal in his 80s. As generations go by and exploitation never cedes, what happens is u have 3 groups of people- A B and C.

A group who just spiral and finally take their own life.
B group is someone who would just bow, meek, beg, borrow, steal, sell dignity- to scrape by.
C group are those who say "Enough is enough of this BS, time to reclaim our country what's rightfully ours"

And when C group gains an upper hand over A, B will fall for C in droves.

To be frank with you, the Naxalits have VERY similar background and COMPOSITION to the VIET CONG. I think even a very top VIetnamese General Vo Nguyen Giap- who routed the US bandit force and SOuth Vietname puppet state and unified Vietnam- stated that.

NAxals = composed off Tribals. That's how they r able to pull of such stunning attacks and victories so well, they know their turf. ...more

Yes. For us a person living in a metro, life of an crocodile or tiger is more important than the life of a tribe . We simply forget that the forest is their home which provides food and shelter to them. By displacing them for hunting animals for food or cultivation is a crime.
