Verrier Elwin on poverty and exploitation of Adivasi’s in Bastar

April 23, 2007

Verrier Elwin (1902 – 1964) was educated in Oxford university and came to India in 1927 as a christian missionary.He ended up marrying a Gondi (name of a tribe) woman and adopting
tribal customs and totally renounced Christianity.The following is an extract from one of his books where he tries to put into words the poverty and exploitation of the adivasis of bastar.


We are so used to poverty in India we forget what it is. I remember one day a family coming to us in tears. for their hut and all they possessed had been destroyed by fire. When I asked how much they wanted to put them on their feet again they said, ‘four rupees’ – the price of a single copy of Brave New World.( A magazine read widely by the bourgeoisie)

That is poverty.

In Bastar state once ,a Maria was condemned to death and on the eve of execution they asked him if there any luxury he would like.He asked for some chapatti and fish curry, made after the city style.They gave it to him and he ate half of it with great enjoyment ,then wrapped the remainder up in the leaf plate and gave it to the jailor, telling him that his little son was waiting outside the prison door.The boy had never tasted such a delicacy and he should have it now.

That is poverty.

Poverty is to see little children taken from you at the height of their beauty
It is to see your wife age quickly and your mother’s back bend below the load of life.It is to be defenseless against arrogant official, to stand unarmed before exploiters and the cheats.

Poverty is to stand for hours before the gate of the court of justice and to be refused admission.It is to find officialdom deaf and the great and wealthy blind.

I have seen children fighting over a scanty meal of roasted rat.I have seen old women pounding wearily at the pith of the sago palm to make a kind of flour.I have watched men climb trees to get red ants to serve instead of chillies.

Poverty is hunger ,frustration,bereavement,futility.
There is nothing beautiful about it.

- Verrier Elwin

Bhagat Singh Quotes

bhagat singh poster cenentary

Let us declare that the state of war does exist and shall exist so long as the Indian toiling masses and the natural resources are being exploited by a handful of parasites. They may be purely British Capitalist or mixed British and Indian or even purely Indian. They may be carrying on their insidious exploitation through mixed or even on purely Indian bureaucratic apparatus. All these things make no difference. “…..The war neither began with us nor is it going to end with our lives.”

- Comrade Bhagat Singh

Shocking but true quotes from the establishment

January 12, 2007

“Yes. I want to become a Maoist if this is the model of development. But I can’t at this age.“-V.P Singh (Former Prime Minister of India)

“I have no hesitation in saying that many of them are highly motivated.They are convinced that they are fighting for a cause. They are far better than the criminals who have managed to infiltrate assemblies and Parliament and even become ministers. “-Prakash Singh (Former Director-General of BSF.)

“The Maoist movement is a symbol of the divide between rural and urban India. The movement cannot be solved by police action at all. There could be a time when they (Maoists) could overrun urban citadels,” – M K Dhar (Former Joint Director of Intelligence Bureau) predicting that Maoists are soon going to capture entire cities.

“Hang corrupt people in public” - Supreme Court gives thumbs up to Jan Adalats (Maoist Judicial System)

“Dalits must be armed” – R R Patil (Hypocrite Home minister of Maharashtra) admits arming the oppressed masses is the only way forward.

“Every five years, it is the masses who determine who will form the government. And in between those five years the classes determine what that government will do. “- Mani Shankar Iyer (Minister for Panchayati Raj ) exposing the UPA government.

This statement of Mani Shankar is nothing new… the maoists have been shouting themselves hoarse for the last 40 years that this independence is a sham.

Quote on Nandigram

Abhi bi jiski khun na ghola… khun nahi woh pani hai…
Jo desh ke kaam na aye… woh bekar jawani hai…

(Translation-
His, whose blood is still not boiling…
his blood is not blood… it is water…
Of what use is the youth…
if it is not useful to the country…)
