I'm not exactly sure where the (unexpected) communication gap was between the three Ms - the Maoists , the 'Magsasite' and the Media

* Pillai says Maoists planning to overthrow Indian govt by 2050 and has its own army

* Maoists name Suzanne Arundhati Roy as one of the possible mediators

* As a 'faithful' mediator, Roy already started her work by contradicting and challenging Pillai

* And then comes the Maoist statement confirming their plans


It was a virtual face-off between the Home Secretary and writer-activist Arundhati Roy who challenged Pillai's statement that Maoists are virtually building an army to overthrow the state of India


"We will overthrow the Indian government much before 2050" Kishenji told PTI. "We have own army, which is capable of overthrowing the Indian government much before 2050", he claimed.

PS: I am reminded of a Romila Thapar statement which sounded something like - "Even if you show me memoirs of Babar saying that for the sake of islam I destroyed Ram temple, we historians don't accept that, we have our own methodology for 'arriving at' history"
