This chapter deals with the trajectory of dynamic politicization of an non-governmental organization which has been organizing consistent agitation concerning rural employment in West Bengal, and subsequently building an apparent opposition to the state, but thereby ultimately being enabled to strengthen the state formation at the rural margin. It describes the fate of a 'civil society initiative' which endeavors to work hand in hand with the government to cover the development deficit through application of managerial skill. The chapter analyses a phenomenon of remittance politics emerging in rural areas of West Bengal primarily based on some kind of philanthropy with and without any relationship to the state institutions. It shows that the initiatives on the part of all kinds of 'civil society' are more or less the same as far as their aims and objectives are concerned.
