Al Jazeera- Fault Lines with Arundhati Roy

Arundhati Roy is an Indian writer who has been an outspoken advocate for human rights across South Asia. She has recently lived amongst the left wing rebel Maoists in India.

When asked about the violent uprising by the Maoists in India, Roy says
“The Ghandian Ethos is a very frightening ethos in the forest… its performance that requires an audience, and in the forrest there is no audience, in a society that doesnt belong to the rest of society,. how do hungry people go on a hunger strike? How do people who have no money not pay thier taxes… NO ONE CARES NO ONE IS WATCHING”
