Discovering Arundhati Roy

I posted this picture the other day on my instagram stories.  I was looking for an different quote to post, and I discovered Arundhati Roy.  Her work fascinated me, so I stared to look for more information about her. She is an author of non fiction and fiction books, but I really defined her as a brave activist that is not scare to tell her truth. 

She is a spokesperson of the anti-globalization/alter-globalization movement and a vehement critic of neo-imperialism and U.S. foreign policy. She opposes India's policies toward nuclear weapons as well as industrialization and economic growth, but she is also an avid writer, and an artist by mean.

 

She has a lot of youtube videos talks that you can watch.  There are some things that she says that I really like and of course, some that I don't.  But like everything, is always good to learn other perspectives.

Some of her books on my wish list are:

1-The God of Small Things

2-The Ministry of Utmost Happiness

3-Listening to Grasshoppers: Field Notes on Democracy

4-Things that Can and Cannot Be Said: Essays and Conversations

5-The Doctor and the Saint
