Description
About the Book

Asim Mukhopadhyay's Half Man goes to the very heart of the Naxalite Movement in Bengal, with special emphasis on the infamous Cossipore-Baranagar massacres in north east Calcutta in August 1971. The novel also focuses on the horrifying repression of lakhs of displaced people in Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra during the Namrmada Bachao Andolan in Gujarat. In the novel, the massacres are witnessed by an innocent village youth of south BEnagal, semi-literate but intelligent and wise beyond his years through his experiences, poor but courageous, who is torturedm, humiliated, thrown out of his village and chased from one place to another and is ultimately turned into a social activist who realises that the tail of the gecko is not the system. The people are the system. They must be changed, in their way of living, thinking and fighting evil. This is a hard-hitting and brutally honest effort to focus light on India’s teeming dll are kept forcibly hidden by vested interests.
