Farsi Translation: Arundhati Roy’s Walking with the Comrades
Posted by Mike E on September 14, 2010
Earlier this year, Indian writer Arundhati Roy slipped into the tribal base areas of India’s growing Maoist movement. She produced the following remarkable description of revolutionary energy emerging from some of the world’s poorest and most threatened people. This widely-circulated essay is even more important as the Indian military prepares a murderous Operation Green Hunt to target the tribal people and the Maoists, occupy their remote political base areas and clear the ground for multinational corporate exploitation.
Now this important essay is available in Farsi — an important language of the Middle East and Central Asia. This is a printable pamphlet form (46 pages in pdf) of the Farsi translation.
Thanks to the tireless Kasama translation team who worked through nights to accomplish this.
Farsi readers: Please forward any suggestions you have for improving this translation.
