Personal Quote:

[on a notorious mass killing in Gujarat in 2002] The guilty should be punished. Everyone knows who they are, but that will not happen. That is the thing about India. You may go to prison for assaulting a woman in a lift or killing one person, but if you are part of a massacre then the chances of your not being punished are high.


Ever since writing The God of Small Things, Roy has been a political activist. She has actively protested against the displacement of people due to the construction of Sardar Sarovar dam on river Narmada, due to which she was sentenced to prison for a day. She has written critiques of Nuclear bomb blasts by Indian government. See more »
