marginalised people experience indigenous rights activism and Adivasi
politics; poverty, the developmental state and corruption; seasonal casual
labour migration and transformations in the agrarian economy; the state,
education and positive action policies; and the radical left and
emancipatory politics, notably the Maoist movement. She is the author of *In
