A tribute to its namesake, The Naxalites draws inspiration from the Naxalite movement that spread like wildfire in the Calcutta of the seventies, drawing the youth into the mechanics of 'Revolution'. A fictionalized account of a socio-political phenomenon, the book encompasses various aspects of the Naxalite movement, offering a glimpse into the era of violence and political unrest that has left a lasting impression in the minds of generations that followed.

The book captures the essence of the struggle for existence of the have-nots against the oppression of the haves through life-like characters. Written in the form of a novel, the narrative with its cinematic descriptions indeed evokes a moving picture.
