For Rahul Banerjee, the road from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur led straight into the land of the Bhils, the indigenous people in Central India. Over the last quarter of a century, Rahul Banerjee has worked among some of the poorest of the poor in the country. This book recounts not only his life among the Bhils, but also his own transformation into an apostate from modernity.
The book is the product of an active and restless mind presenting a delightful account of activist and Bhil life in India "from below" while engaging with the broader ideas that are shaping contemporary India.
