Product Description

Rajeev Bhattacharyya walked nearly 800 kilometres over some of the most hostile terrain and through no man's land. His journey which took three months and twenty days to complete is unprecedented in Indian journalism. He visited the rebel bases in Eastern Nagaland which covers a part of Myanmar's Sagaing Division stayed in the ULFA camp and interviewed its chief of staff Paresh Baruah as also chairman of the NSCN (Khaplang) S.S. Khaplang himself. He interacted with rebels from banned outfits like the NDFB UPPK PLA and other groups - for many of them this was their first conversation with an Indian journalist. Bhattacharyya is one of very few journalists in the world to have made this journey and among the fewer still to have had such intimate access.

Rendezvous with Rebels is the story of that journey. It is as much a travel memoir as it is a hard-hitting political account of the fissures that mark the conflicts in India's Northeast and Myanmar's Sagaing Division. Bhattacharyya analyses the historical and current role of ULFA NSCN and other rebel forces and sizes up the current situation in Eastern Nagaland vis-a-vis the changes taking place in Myanmar specifically and the subcontinent generally. It is ultimately an up-close examination of a very thorny conflict.
