'I will not let you kill any more.' Shanto's voice was firm, confident-no longer that of a timid fourteen-year-old boy. Shanto has managed the impossible. He has escaped from the heavily fortified Lalgarh police station in the heart of Jangal mahal. Few outsiders dare enter these forests. It is a place where armed bands of men and women, Maoists, rule the roost. It is a place where even police contingents don't travel after dark. Shanto is a child soldier, a hungry boy recruited into a bloodthirsty army of rebels. But when he gets involved in an operation that leads to the gruesome killing of thirty-eight people, he decides to quit the rebels' cause. Now, both the police and his former comrades are hunting him down. Will he emerge unscathed? Or will this be the final end of innocence for him? A searing portrayal of a boy forced to confront a brutal reality, Guns on My Red Earth will mesmerize its readers.
