Romila Thapar is the distinguished name in the Indian intellectuals. She has been proclaimed as one of the so called illustrious historian. Romila belongs to New Delhi and has been in the lime light for many reasons. Romila is considered a leading historian because of her contributions, however some critics calls her destorian rather than a historian.
Romila has again come in the lime light for the different reason. Few days back Maharashtra police arrested some people under the conspiracy of assassination of our Prime Minister Mr. Modi. Varavara Rao, Arun Ferreira, Varnan Gonsalvies, Sudha Bhardwaj, Gautam Navlakha, etc some people identified as prime suspects. Unlike other naxals who usually tends to go to jungles and use guns to spread terror, these people used to live in society among normal people and used to organize various campaigns to help maoist and naxals. The prosecution has started however there are many such intellectuals who have come to save them. This entire affair is in the court and at the same time Romila asks several journalists – “who are these #UrbanNaxals”?
This entire thing was covered in a Gujarati daily – Divya Bhaskar as depicted above. In accordance to what Romila has asked, the famous film maker, brave author and newest author Mr. Vivek Agnihotri has the answer of her question, in a form of his best seller title #UrbanNaxals.
