Ashok Mitra (1928–2018)

The Arekrakam Legacy

Ashok Mitra (1928–2018)

Ashok Mitra remained arekrakam (of another kind), insisting that the left could only survive and thrive if it does not abandon its ideology and principled politics. This Arekrakam legacy he leaves behind—als0 in the form of the journal he established by the same name—will remain a powerful inspiration for all efforts to resuscitate and rejuvenate the left movement in Bengal and elsewhere.

[D]issent is golden, it is heresies which shape history.

—Ashok Mitra (2013b)
