Benoy Choudhury (1911-2000) was in his eighties and minister for land reform in the West Bengal state government when I interviewed him in Calcutta in June 1992. He was a member of the politburo of the Communist Party of India (Marxist). He talked about being a youthful member of the Bengal revolutionary group Jugantar - becoming a communist - experience of jail - involvement with the peasant movement - links with the British Communist movement - the split within Indian Communism - and the land reform programme implemented in West Bengal.
The interview was for the programme on West Bengal in the radio series What's Left of Communism? Only the first part of the interview is posted above - the later part is available below in MP3 format only.
