About the Book
The longest armed struggle in India has been that of the Naga people. Beginning soon after India's Independence, the Nagas asserted their rights over their land and political destiny. Their struggle took the form of armed resistance, which was countered by the Indian armed forces. The Indian government has played a very careful role in both, repressing insurgency and at the same time bringing development to Nagaland and other Naga inhabited areas. Various agencies were at work among the Nagas, in India and abroad over these years in search of peace for the Naga problem. While relative peace has come to Nagaland, particularly after the ceasefire agreement and its extension, the issues raised by the Nagas in Manipur and parts of Arunachal Pradesh continue to pose a challenge to those interested in arriving at a long and lasting solution to the issue of Naga insurgency. The Naga Chronicle is a collection of documents relating to the Naga people's movement right from its inception for redefining their status. The documents have been collected and edited by Rev. V.K. Nuh, himself part of the struggle and author of several other works on the Nagas. Over the years he has painstakingly collected material relating to the Nagas. This book is undoubtedly the single largest collection of documents on contemporary Naga history and politics encompassing all the important documents related to Naga movement. As the Naga peace-making process reaches another crucial and very significant stage, The Naga Chronicle will go a long way in understanding the Naga people and their aspirations. A true ambassador for Christ, Rev. V.K. Nuh is presently General Secretary of the Council of Naga Baptist Churches in Nagaland. From humble beginning as an evangelist, he later became a Chaplain in the Naga Army, and in spite of being jailed as a political prisoner in Imphal Central Jail, his enthusiasm never waned. Serving as Headmaster in a Bible School he went on to become a Pastor of the Baptist Church. He served as Field Director of the Chakhesang Baptist Church Council from 1971 to 1992 where he was conferred with the honorary title of ‘Executive Secretary Emeritus’. Subsequently he was also awarded with the ‘Honorary Doctor of Divinity’ at Gurukul Theological Seminary, Madras. A vital spokesman of the Naga society, which is characterized by much traumatic socio-political upheaval, Rev. Dr. Nuh’s accomplishments are many. With the genuine love for his motherland and his vision he still leaves no stone unturned to further the cause of the people. Rev. Dr. Nuh has authored several books, some of which are: • Nagaland Church and Politics • My Country My People • Crusade on Naga Morality • Theological Reflection on Naga Society • Revive us again • Struggle for Identity in North-East India • My Native Country–The Land of the Nagas • 165 Years History of Naga Baptist Churches • 50 Years of Peace Work by Nagaland Churches & Civil Societies
