I am glad to inform you all that I have been receiving both bouquets and brickbats for writing articles on Kandhamal violence which I call it a phenomena. I have written three articles and taken an interview of Dr John Dayal, working for the cause of dalits.
Currently, I am writing my fourth article on the same subject which will be released in the public domain within a couple of days. The readers can read the earlier articles at www.kandhamalconversion.blogspot.com
In the process of studying Kandhamal phenomena, I have got the feed back from people that the reasons behind Kandhamal violence is not local only. But, it has both national and global linkages due to which the image of India specially Odisha has been tarnished. And, poor dalits / tribal have become the victims of communal forces.
The media coverage of Kandhamal violence / phenomena is also not complete and the facts or truth behind Kandhamal episode is yet to be unveiled. The people specially from Odisha origin living within and outside the State as well as country were of the opinion that the global world needs be conveyed that the peace loving people of Odisha alone are not responsible for the violence that continued for four months. There were several other factors too responsible for this SC-ST conflict taking the shape of a Hindu-Christian communal violence / phenomena.
And, the people within and outside Odisha should be conveyed that the secularism-peace and social change is a must for a holistic development of the state.
In this backdrop, I have been suggested by some of the readers to write a book on Kandhamal violence-phenomena with the help of inputs offered by two other persons. Both of them are also close associated with the day today development in Kandhamal.
I have already written five chapters out of the twelve chapters of the seventy five (75) pages book. The book will be released in March this year.
With warm regards to all,
