Wars, communal carnages, human rights violations galore, the untrammeled march of global capitalism: 2003 was a bleak year for all yearning for a just and equitable world order. Are we left with any hopes at the end of it? Yes, if this little diary made by the Delhi-based non-governmental organisation, Kriti is anything to go by. It is interspersed with vignettes of hope: from the Beej Bachao Andolan in the Garhwal Himalayas, the intrepid struggle of people in Plachimada, Kerala against Coca Cola, the landless workers movement in Brazil, the international movement against the denial of reproductive rights to women, the campaign against nuclear weapons and the Swadhyaya movement for alternative development in Gujarat.
Kriti's documentation is not didactic. It tries to capture different ideologies, strategies and issues around which struggles have and continue to be waged across the world. Now in its fifth year, the diary provides updates from the movements featured in its previous editions. There is a movements' map of India, which locates these struggles across the expanse of the country. So get this elegant diary and let your notes, thoughts and memories share space with accounts of people who have made a difference.
