Aneek Special Issue on “Social Revolution and Armed Struggle”

August 27, 2010

[Aneek, a Bengali sociopolitical monthly published from Kolkata, has recently published a special issue on “Social Revolution and Armed Struggle”. The publication of this special issue is geared towards re-igniting the debate about radical transformation of the present socio-economic system in India. The debate raises serious questions about the possibilities of replacing the current system with a new social order, and draws on contributions from a diverse section of intellectuals and organizations who are part of this on-going political process. Continuing our efforts at providing space for such debates, we are reproducing the articles (in Bengali) here. – Ed]

Aneek started its journey around 1964 and in its long journey, it has responded to the call of the hour from the mass upheavals of 1960s and turbulent 1970s, through the internal emergency and fall of Soviet Union to the era of neo-liberal globalisation. During the internal emergency, (in June 1975) one issue of Aneek was proscribed and its editor and one member of the editorial board were arested for it. The publication of the magazine was suspended during the dark days of emergency. Aneek resumed its journey from 1977 and is continuing till date without skipping a single issue.
