When I started this blog... I never in my wildest dreams
expected it to end in this manner...
Almost a year ago peoplesmarch.com an independent website that
provided news on the Maoist Movement in
by the Indian government.
It was then that I took a spontaneous decision to start a blog
to provide news and updates on the Maoist movement.
I thought I would be doing my bit to counter censorship in
And that is why we today have naxalrevolution.blogspot.com
If peoplesmarch.com wasn't blocked then this blog would
never have come into existence. I would have been content
reading their updates.
I even had a decent blog back then where I made cartoons called
Indiacorporatewatch but had to stop once I started
blogging at this address.
One of the primary motives of the naxalrevolution
blog was and still remains to counter the reactionary
naxalwatch blog and we did a very good job of it,
delivering far more superior content and balanced news.
But never did we imagine that this blog will be accessed by
maoists and not even in our wildest dreams did we imagine that
this blog might play a role in someone's death..
Yes.. Shocking as it may sound... this blog seems to have
blood on its hands.. or rather its pages.. and it is oozing
out of the keyboard even as I type onto my hands...
Yesterday night when I was looking for the latest news about
Maoists on Google news.. I came across this news item and it
left me dazed for a couple of minutes...
Rajamouli’s body handed over to kin
ANANTAPUR: Dharmavaram police handed over the body of Sande Rajamouli, one of the topmost Naxalite leader, to his relatives.
Rajamouli’s brother Ravindra,
DSP Sivaiah spoke to them and handed over the body to them. Mouli’s relatives alleged that he was killed in a fake encounter and demanded an inquiry.
It is learnt that the CDs seized from near the body of the slain Naxalite contained important information. The information included the letter written by Mouli’s wife Rajita to Maoist politburo member Lakshman and e-mail IDs and websites of Maoist leaders in the world.
It was the last paragraph that sent my head spinning.
Now let us re read and reconsider that bit of information that
I have highlighted in red more carefully..
It says that a CD containing the email ids and website addresses
of Maoist leaders of the world were found on his body.
Now before we jump to conclusions let us think rationally
and answer some questions that I think are important
and need to be asked and answered.
Let us also make some assumptions and consider some
What are the chances that this list was compiled by Comrade Rajamouli
who was underground by surfing random websites online on his own ?
What are the chances that the list was passed to him indirectly through
What are the chances that the person who may have passed the list he had was
the same as the one I posted here only a month back?
A. Very High
What are the chances that a man who was underground for 2 decades
successfully would be suddenly be intercepted by police and murdered?
What are the chances that the person who accessed this blog was
traced by the Intelligence Bureau which monitors visitors to this blog and all those who subscribe to it through email updates 24 X 7 , 365 days a year ?
A. Very High
What are the chances that the Intelligence Bureau monitored that person
who accessed this blog and eventually came to know about Com Rajamouli's
whereabouts through him ?
A. Very High
What are the chances that some readers of this blog are still being monitored?
and the lives of several people are in danger all because somebody
for whom this blog was not meant for accessed it regularly ?
What are the chances that my gut feeling which is saying
that this blog has played a part in this murder indirectly is true?
A. Very High
What are the Chances we will ever find out the truth?
What are the chances that I am going to continue this blog ?
What are the chances I am going to delete this blog?
What are the chances that this post is just the delusion of a paranoid mind ?
A. I don’t really know !
This blog seems to have become an albatross that I have to carry around my neck for the rest of my life.
