On15 July 2020, Anand Teltumbde will turn 70. He is in Navi Mumbai’s Taloja jailentrapped by a lawless law. Justice damns itself as a rule in India; of late,injustice seems to have become the ruling principle of the courts. 





Umakant,Ph. D 



My final words of advice to you are educate, agitate and organize; have faith in yourself. With justice on our side I do not see how we can lose our battle. The battle to me is a matter of joy. The battle is in the fullest sense spiritual. There is nothing material or social in it. For ours is a battle not for wealth or for power. It is battle for freedom. It is the battle of reclamation of human personality.
