About The Book

The Naga issue, demanding an autonomous 'Nagalim', has been a boiling pot that led to the oldest insurgency in India. While there are multiple factors that gave boost to insurgency in Nagaland, this author has striven to ascertain the relationship between culture, corruption and insurgency in this state. Additionally, the study comprised the connectedness between the government and people of Nagaland, theoretical perspectives of counterinsurgency, and policy recommendations.

Insurgency in Nagaland has exerted its impact on all facets of human life. This infringed on all human rights and forged a serious threat to national security. Though there are several factors that give impetus to this danger, this study has focussed on two elements - Naga culture and Corruption in public offices. Hence, this piece of work has primarily examined the linkage of Naga culture with the prevailing corruption in government offices, and the connection of this corruption with insurgency. There is no doubt that the Nagas masse were honest, humble and freedom loving people in olden days. During the British rule, the annexation of Naga Hills by Assam led to the formation of the Naga Club, and thereafter Naga National Council, that struggled to throw away the yoke enforced on them. After the British left India, the fight and the Indian government was forced to take several stringent steps that invited criticism from different quarters. After the statehood in 1963, pouring in of huge funds for development caused heightened corruption in government offices, leading to a 'culture of corruption. This might have gradually permeated in the life of common men, and it exceeded all limits so that people were forced to accept corruption as a way of life. As a whole, there seems to be a weak internalisation of anticorruption values, and in this context it is obvious that the people look for different avenues to become rich by any means.
