Equitymaster Websummit: Investor Education Initiative

The Naxal Crisis and Where It Is Headed

Dear Privileged Member:

Let's get straight to the point.

The Naxalite-Maoist insurgency is an ongoing serious issue in the country.

It started in 1967, continuing till present as evident from the daily news.

Firstly, does it show lack of governance in the country?

Secondly, what actually causes this conflict?

Thirdly, how does it affect us as investors?

Sudeep Chakravarti
To discuss this grave subject at large, we recently recorded an interview with Sudeep Chakravarti, an independent analyst of socio-political and security issues in South Asia, an author, a columnist with Mint, and consultant to think-tanks, media and businesses.

He has published several books, including the Red Sun: Travels in Naxalite Country, on India's ongoing Maoist rebellion; and his latest, Highway 39: Journeys through a Fractured Land set in Northeastern India. His essays on conflict are contained in several collections, including Non-State Armed Groups in South Asia; and More than Maoism: Politics, Policies and Insurgencies in South Asia.

In our web seminar with Mr. Chakravarti, we have talked on various points below:
  • How did Naxalism or such conflicts actually started in the first place?
  • How has Indian government reacted to these? Any effective measures yet?
  • What is the relation of corruption to these conflicts?
  • What would you do as an investor?
During the interview, Mr. Chakravarti touched upon a very delicate point when he said, "For most people, the economy of conflict is more seductive than the economy of peace."

Is it really? It was absolute pleasure to understand this serious political issue in depth right from someone who knows what he is talking about.

To end with, although our WebSummit are normally focused on investing, we decided to stray off this week on something that does not talk about investing, rather something that is HIGHLY relevant to investing in this country.

Go ahead, and watch this thought provoking WebSummit now!
