Amit Topno

In the escalating conflict between a draconian state and violent insurgency, Amit Topno believes that the ones who lose out most are the innocents caught in between. Amit is an adivasi inhabitant of the conflict-prone region of Khunti. He has witnessed a million violations that the state and insurgents have committed in the name of ‘development’ and ‘freedom[’. It is a difficult region to work in but Amit has a decade’s worth of experience as a grassroots organizer and leader. As a Community Correspondent he says that it will be his responsibility that these injustices are heard, understood and redressed.
