If you were to look for Naxalism or Maoists of India on the web, it would throw up a lot of info. which would make it difficult for a first timer to relate and get the complete picture.
I came across this article on “zeenews” website reported/documented by “Ritam Banati”.
This article should give you a very good & clean picture of what Naxalism is, how it all started and how the govt. and the Naxalites got it all wrong over course of time. And how the common/innocent people have been the ones who have taken the brunt of all of the violence.
