Many may consider this as a strange contribution to a book unrelated to my interests. My article on the character of anti-Mandal agitation of 2006-07 appears in this book edited by medical practitioners, Kabir Sheikh and Asha George, to be published soon by Routledge. The editors invited me to contribute a chapter to their book, despite my initial reluctance,after having been inspired by my article in Frontline. However, as the project proceeded, I found them hard task masters, always keen to bring out the best from me. Contributing to an edited volume is both a learning and a humbling experience. The chapter, which I contributed,appears under the title,’The Dynamics of Medicos’ Anti-Reservation Protests of 2006′.
