The book delves deep into the socio-economic and political factors that led to the massacre, highlighting the struggles of the tribal communities in the region who have been fighting for their land rights and livelihoods for decades. It also sheds light on the role of corporate greed and government apathy in fueling the violence.

The authors have interviewed survivors, activists, lawyers, and government officials to provide a nuanced understanding of the complexities surrounding the incident. Additionally, the book explores the legal battles fought by the victims’ families, as well as the impact of the massacre on the larger struggle for land and resource rights across India.
Overall, Kalinganagar Gulikanda is a powerful and thought-provoking read that exposes the harsh realities of development-induced displacement and the need for greater accountability and justice for marginalized communities.
