Three splashes of colors to brighten up three slices of life; Arundhuti Roy has "Broken Republic: Three Essays" to share with you

You already know Arundhuti Roy both for the socio-political activities alongside her writing abilities. In the past, Roy has displayed her ability to put her finger unerringly and unfailingly, on the pulse of the nation, a pulse that the media neglects to read, politicians prefer not to hear, and the middle-class urban Indians pretend doesn’t exist. She has written and spoken about the glaring disconnect between the Two Indias, about homelessness, rural destitution, unemployment, shrinking land, industrialization, privatization, globalization, terrorism, US imperialism, Hindutva nationalism and urban renewal which does away with those at the lowest rung of the socio-economic pyramid as well as atrocities of the state against the most marginalized and least empowered – in fact, all the subjects that are anathema to the proponents of Shining India. In the process, she has earned brickbats and bouquets, laurels and libels from both sides of the Great Divide. Interestingly enough while she finds no favor with the right-wingers for obvious reasons, there is little love lost between her and India’s loose, lumbering and largely disorganized left. War has spread from the borders of India to the forests in the very heart of the country. Combining brilliant analysis and reportage by one of India’s iconic writers, “Broken Republic: Three Essays” examines the nature of progress and development in the emerging global superpower and asks fundamental questions about modern civilization itself. About the Author Arundhati Roy is the author of The God of Small Things, which won the Booker Prize in 1997. Three volumes of her non-fiction writing, The Algebra of Infinite Justice, an Ordinary Person’s Guide to Empire and Listening to Grasshoppers, and Broken Republic: Three Essays complies each of them.
