About the Book
Jharkhand’s aspiration for re-gaining its separate political identity—which eventually ended in statehood in the Union of India—had its origin in the British Raj, long before the Indian State itself became a reality. Jharkhand Statehood is among the longest struggles for identity—of over 100 years—in human history. It saw many ups and down, hopes and disappointments, assurances and treachery, fair and foul plays. The book “Journey of Jharkhand Movement” has tried to capture all momentous emotions during the course of struggle.
In fact, the book is a live-documentation of important milestones of the long-drawn struggle of a people for political identity that at its base had unique cultural values like by love, brotherhood, simplicity, honesty, joyfulness, social equality, non-discrimination etc. All of these truly characterized an individual residing in the region now known as Jharkhand, in complete contrast to regions elsewhere.
For those who want to study what kind of course a people’s struggle charts, it is must read.
