Roy

Today our small group touched a little on how amazing a person Arundhati Roy is. We talked about her in class a little and touched on the fact that she hasn’t published a novel since The God of Small Things, but has become involved in several political issues surrounding India. The other class read the book of essays about her and so I thought it would be interesting to learn a little bit more about her political views and what she’s been fighting for. Someone already posted a really interesting video about her views on Obama but below is an interview she did with the magazine “The Progressive”. My favorite part of the interview was when the interview stated: “You feel a sense of responsibility to these silent voices that are calling out to you.” She replied by saying, “No, I don’t feel responsibility because that’s such a boring word.” She just seems like such a cool woman!
