The Anarchist CookbookAuthor: Aakar PatelIllustrator: PenPencilDrawPublisher: HarperCollinsPrice: Rs 399Activism is a good word. The elite and prosperous in India, who have the privilege and influence, must act. Aakar Patel makes this case and shows why and how to protest in his new book, The Anarchist Cookbook.Rules for India and rules for Bharat are not the same. Sharad Joshi, the leader of several successful movements pointed this out in his lifelong activism. Proof that this is true even today comes from this book. The Indian state was not created but inherited after independence from the British Empire. This state serves the elite and protects their rights. The elite merely need to ask, or draw a connection to get their job done. Dalits, Adivasis, Muslims, and citizens living in Kashmir and all of northeast India, are treated as outsiders. Their rights are snatched and services for them are absent.
