Arundhati Roy is a living paradox. It is her habit to see cloud in every silver lining. She lives in a palatial bungalow, but talks about poor. When on tour, she always prefers to stay in five star hotels, but keep on talking about homeless people on Indian cities roads. Her bungalow was found to be illegal by an Indian court because it had encroached forest land, but Arundhati Roy always touch the issues of forest people and how their forest rights are being encroached by the Indian state.
She is enjoying lavish lifestyle, but loves to talk about poor.
Arundhati Roy writes/types on Windows laptop using MS Word Software, but criticizes corporations like Microsoft. She uses iPhone, but considers Apply Inc. as a sin.
That is Arundhati Roy for you. That is the famous human rights activist for you. That is a famous Indian for you who thinks that India should let go Kashmir.
