* a blog which grew out of our personal frustration at the failure of
traditional commercial media to provide coverage of issues that
really mattered to us and to counter the massive disinformation
campaign unleashed by certain right wing elements to paint the
Revolutionary Maoists as thugs and terrorists when we
believe they are nothing less than freedom fighters fighting for
freedom from capitalist exploitation and liberation from the
prevailing barbarian social order.

Purpose and Intent of this website:
This website does not suggest that it contains the "truth". The truth is a combination of all information and all facts relating to a topic. It is therefore unachievable (in our opinion) for anyone to say "I know the truth."
If you came to this site in search of "the truth" you will be disappointed. That is also true of Aaj Tak, Zee News, NDTV and other rags that masquerade as newspapers but if you came here to gather information then you may find this blog a useful resource.
Gibran says in the "Prophet" Say not, "I have found the truth," but rather, "I have found a truth."
That brings us to our first point:
A great thinker once said "Liberty can not be preserved without general knowledge among people" this statement points to the absolute necessity of an informed citizenry if our nation is to evolve into a functioning progressive society.
This means that each citizen has a civic responsibility to inform himself and share that information with others. The corporate media pumps information into our homes and does a great job of providing the information that our government wants us to know. It has in my opinion become the propaganda arm of government, and a great number of those who call themselves journalists are in fact nothing less than presstitutes.
Truth is indefinable. Information is unlimited.
Hope you find the blog useful.
