In India's season of unrest, the national media has been faulted, not entirely without reason, for ignoring this one: 5 months of intermittent strikes at the Maruti Suzuki plant in Manesar. Truth vs Hype this week examines the anatomy of the troubles at Maruti - a conflict with no easy heroes and villains, and where every claim is fiercely contested. Is India's largest carmaker riding its workers too hard on the road to high profits and is being vindictive with dissenters? Or are a small band of troublemakers holding to ransom one of India's most reputed companies? Is this a localized bushfire, specific to one company and one location - or a wildfire that acts as an early warning of coming wars between labor and capital?
