This chapter takes up a major movement of the tribals and outcastes that developed in 1942. As demonstrated, the tribals and outcastes not only grasped the immediate problems affecting them, but also identified themselves with the broader struggle associated with the Indian national movement. These were conditioned by the interactions between their immediate problems and their visions of the anti-imperialist struggle and swaraj (independence). In this sense this chapter questions the nationalist historians who make a historic block out of the Congress and Indian nationalism, as well as some subaltern historians who see the involvement of the peasants and tribals in the national movement to be based only on local issues affecting them.

Keywords:   Alluri Sitaram Raju, Bhumiya, khadi (yarn) spinning, Laxman Naiko, Laxman raj, Mathili, nationalist historians, rumours, subaltern historians, swaraj (independence)
