Nepal has seen several kinds of uprisings following Janandolan II of 2006. Sudden uprising in Madhesh in 2007 was one of them. Various scholars have written a number of books explaining the reasons behind the Madheshi Andonal, but author Mathema has his own version on offer.


The book analyzes the 2007 Madheshi uprising, the identity based antagonisms that fueled it, complex motivations of the participants of the uprising, the insensitivity and political miscalculations of the Nepalese state and intelligentsia.


The book offers a multifaceted examination of Nepal’s terai region’s complex social diversity, political history and process of alienation of Madheshis from the rest of Nepal. Organized into six chapters, the book discusses various movements between 1950 and 2008 launched by various Madheshi groups.


According to the author, the book synthesizes some of the findings from the research work the author carried out for his thesis writing for a Master’s Program in Sociology. This may be the reason there are certain lapses in information regarding the uprising.
