Arundhati is back again with what she does best: WRITE SHIT

Arundhati Roy's article:

This is what happens when an engineer tries to be a doctor and a writer writes to be an activist. She is really the Goddess of all small things, I mean all meanness. She can sleep with the Naxal (who have killed more innocents than perhaps the police), and can openly support the Kashmiri separatist movement (that has created the second largest displaced community of the world - the Kashmiri Pandits), and now she speaks like Manish Tiwari about Anna. Does she mean that she is more intelligent than so many intellectuals who are supporting this movement? I don't think so. She has the right to voice her thoughts, but she can't demean someone, or someone else's thoughts. That shows how mean she is.

Have you ever heard her saying anything about the Sikh riots of 84 that had killed more Sikhs than Muslims killed in Gujarat riots in 2002. No, she never writes. Did she ever write about the Kashmiri Pandits? Did she ever write about the Bhopal Gas tragedy which has been the biggest genocide in India till date - that was something like the concentration camp and still she is quiet. Why? She finds it interesting only when it augers her agenda, I don't know what. She is just a media hungry hypocrite who shouldn't be taken seriously at all.

And what the fuss about using Vande Mataram? Arundhati Roy writes in English. But she could have been a little more aware of Indian languages. I'm not expecting her to be an authority in Sanskrit (thanks God, at least she doesn't shit in that language), but still she should have referred to any Sanskrit dictionary to find the meaning of vandana.

Let me quote from the Monier Williams' Sanskrit to English dictionary. The word vandana comes from the root vad, which means to speak, to utter, to praise etc. And vandana also means praise, other then just worship. Sanskrit is a very metaphoric language and one word has multiple meanings. Vande Mataram doesn't mean only to worship the motherland, it also means to praise the motherland, to speak of the motherland. What's the wrong in that. Is any religion of the world against praising his or her motherland. If yes, I do condemn that religion, and those thoughts.

But I still maintain, she is a good writer!!

BTW, our movement is to fight corruption, and everything that she has mentioned is a fruit of some corruption. We're fighting with ourselves too, because the root of corruption is within me. Whenever I don't want to take a bill to avoid the sales tax, I'm being corrupt. Everytime I ask my CA to find ways to evase tax, I'm being corrupt. Everytime I jump a signal I'm being corrupt. Every time I use office resources for my personal use (even taking printout of fligth tickets) I'm being corrupt. We're fighting against all these. Once we're free from corruption only then we can change the world. And what's the problem in doing that? If Arundhati doesn't want to be the Anna, thanks. Let her sleep with the Naxals and the Kashmiri terrorists!! We don't need her in our movement.

I was wondering when we would have a discussion going on this ! Seriously this woman needs to be sent to a mental asylum for having the imagination to conjure up such incredible conspiracy theories ! I heard her interviewed on the BBC's "The World" on NPR last night and she just struggled so much in trying to articulate exactly what her bone of contention was against the current movement that has taken the country by storm. I for one think that she just couldn't stomach the fact that Anna has captured the imagination and respect of a billion plus people and that people like her has been left to just rue a chance that passed them by. I am amazed as to why we waste so much time even seeking the opinion of mentally degenerate people such as Aundhati Roy. No seriously what does she smoke ...I want some of her share of pot myself ! I bet it tastes reaaaaaaaaly gooooooood.

You are utterly misinformed. And clearly, you have read very little of Arundhati Roy.
Yes, she has spoken about Kashmiri Pandits, and she says the Government didn't do enough to protect them, and should do everything to bring them back to their own land.
"sleeps with the Naxals", do you mean all meanness or do you mean insanity and assumption.

Hi Naman,

Could you please send me the link of the article she had written about the following?
Plight of Kashmiri Pandits at the hands of the Kashmiri Separatists whom she supports openly
Sikh Riots - in the same way she writes about Gujarat riots
Bhopal Gas Tragedy

I'd really love to read more of her. She is one of the finest writers of India and I'd like her write more books!!

Please help me to read more of her!!
