Community Correspondents

Amit Topno

Amit is a Community Correspondent and an Adivasi inhabitant of the conflict-prone region of Khunti.

In the escalating conflict between a draconian state and violent insurgency, Amit believes that the ones who lose out most are the innocents caught in between. He has witnessed thousands of 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 of experience as a grassroots organizer and leader. As a Community Correspondent he believes it is his responsibility that these injustices are heard, understood and redressed.
