"Urban Naxals" term has captured the imagination of entire country through this book. Mr. Agnohotri lays bare the machinations and schemes of leftist communist ecosystem in urban idea who fuel and abet the naxal movement and also support Tukde Tukde gang. As a book, there is a bit of repetition and narrative style sometimes reads like a diary. But that is insignificant compared to the strong message it gives out. Recommended reading.

This is not a book. It is a phenomenon - a movement! It updated the current political lexicon and raised awareness of an entire nation. Read this book because it is powerful at multiple levels. I would know. I purchased the first copy!

Exposes how criminals are ruling the roost in India wearing a mask of "human rights", "women’s right" and various NGOs. I am not saying every NGOs are corrupted, there are some who used NGOs to bypass the money or agenda. Not only terrorist are brainwashed, in this book you can see how educa ... more
