one of the best books i ever read. it's not about god, it's about love and the caste system in India.[ This Message was edited by: formerly known as on 2005-03-25 00:21 ]

i loved the book. i've been reading a lot from the new crop of indian authors. if you are interested, you should check out gita mehta's a river sutra and her books of essays on india (snakes  and ladders: portraits of modern india and karma cola).

Arundhati Roy kicks ass and takes no prisoners.  i haven't read her book but i subscribe to a magazine that occaisionally publishes excerpts from her speeches.  In case you're interested, the magazine i'm referring to is called "In These Times" and is headquartered in Chicago.  i've also seen her speak on BOOK-T.V., which is on C-span-2 every weekend.  She is right on.

If you would have justice in this world, then begin to see that a human being is not a means to some end.  People are not commodities.  When human beings are just to one another government becomes obsolete and real freedom is born; SPIRITUAL ANARCHY.
