Gaon Ke Log was first started as a bi-monthly magazine from October 2016 from a village in Banaras district of Uttar Pradesh, which has been coming out continuously for the last six years. A total of 30 issues have been published so far. It is coming out despite some setbacks and continued financial crunch.
As the name suggests, it is an expression of marginalized societies, dedicated to public concerns irrespective of caste, creed, religion, region and any kind of narrow-mindedness.
In Gaon Ke Log Patrika, this matter was given a central place and efforts were made to reach out to those people who are constantly fighting against social injustice themselves with utmost importance to the mass movements and public questions going on in the country.
The purpose of this magazine has been to connect the conflicts between the villages-forests-mountains with the struggles of the wider human society. The Gaon Ke Log have written continuously against the destruction of nature and environment and the conspiracy to push the entire humanity into the pit of exploitation and degradation by the corporate, as well as the Manuwadi viruses that create a high and low gulf between human beings through brahminical thinking and behavior. .
It is necessary to say that this is the platform of our language which has strongly criticized religious fascism and anti-corporate and anti-people policies. Gaon Ke Log have advocated the rights of farmers, laborers, women, children, tribals, backwards, dalits and minorities with full courage without fear.
The Gaon Ke Log have also given priority and height to every voice of the public against corporate robbery, criminalization, forced land acquisition, deforestation, theft of rivers and illegal mining of mountains and environmental destruction. We have gone into the depths of issues and questions by doing ground-reporting from far and wide. Apart from this, we have also made the search, research and scavenging of mass culture against anti-culture as our important goal, documenting-publishing various culture forms, folk arts and people associated with them, evaluating the work of teachers who have done excellent work in rural schools and old age of societies. The combination of oral history with the memories of the old people has also continued.
Due to these actions and natural boldness and courage, many people have kept Gaon Ke Log close to their hearts and have given all possible support.
