Arundhati Roy – A writer, India & Kashmir

Arundhati Roy , one of my favorite writers & booker award winner for her first book, is in news this week about her statement about Kashmir not essentially an “Integral” part of India & there is a huge uproar that she be booked (along with Geelani) for sedition again India.

This is ridiculous to think that if India really wants to be India & not afganistan & pakistan. Moreover the timing of this is completely political. You can see her interview for 1 and a 1/2 year back & there is nothing different that she is saying now.
