There is a war going on in the tribal heartland of central and
eastern India between the Naxalite Maoists and the Indian state, in
which -- Arundhati Roy believes -- much is at stake. The award-winning
writer discusses her time accompanying a group of Maoists in the
forests, and the brutal counterinsurgency effort mounted against them by
the Indian government. She also talks about the Occupy Wall Street
movement and anticapitalism.
