This is a good move. This just shows just how noational the issue of Nandigram is in the country. Though the happenings date back to Jan 2006 last year, and there had been a deafening silence since then- it is good to learn that people are finally becoming aware. This isn' just about Nandigram. The entire country must stand up and oppose this gruesome act.

Brutal? yes. Medieval... hardly. Nandigram is profoundly modern. The state waging war against "its own people" is hardly primitive and should hardly surprise anyone. An egg on the face of everyone who even remotely identifies as a Marxist. As Foucault says it is time for neither hope not despair... just look for new weapons! Perhaps take that egg off of your face, poach it and eat it so you can think harder about what to say and do.
