|Project||Intimations of a Rebellion|
As a shiny new India appears, hunger takes the place of an economic super-power. From its forested heart, we hear the drumbeat of war… The search for land, minerals and water has drawn the world’s corporations ever deeper into these forests –hit a roadblock. Led by guerillas of the underground ‘Maoist’, some of India’s poorest are digging in for a fight. Back and forth, bullets and body counts already ricochet, tapping out an alarming message. About a civil war that pits some of India’s most disadvantaged people, backed by the Maoists, against some of its richest corporations, backed by the Government. The home of Gandhi, of satyagraha, of non-violent resistance, India, known as the largest democracy in the world, is poised to take its place in the ranks of the Great Powers.
The impending war in the tribal’s areas of central India straddles several worlds at once, and brings together sets of people separated by centuries of disconnect. It’s the enormity of that distance itself, and the force with which they are brought together, that provide us an opportunity to pause, and reflect on the very fundamentals of change, to think of social and political transformation, and indeed on what the future holds for us.
