Overview: Listening to Grasshoppers

About the Book : In eleven powerful, and closely argued, linked essays, Arundhati Roy takes ahard look at the underbelly of the world s largest democracy. Beginning withthe state-backed killing of Muslims in Gujarat in 2002, she writes about how progress and genocide have historically gone hand in hand; about the murkyinvestigations into the 2001 attack on the Indian Parliament; about the dangersof an increasingly powerful and entirely unaccountable judiciary; and about thecollusion between large corporations, the government and the mainstreammedia. The volume ends with an account of the August 2008 uprising inKashmir and an analysis of the November 2008 attacks on Mumbai. The Briefing , included as an appendix, is a compelling fictional text that bringstogether many of the issues central to the collection.QUOTES Searing, painful, chilling Noam Chomsky After so much celebratory salesmanship about India the emerging market , Roy draws us into India the actual country, peeling away thegloss. She is one of the most confident and original thinkers of ourtime Naomi Klein Arundhati Roy resists and denounces all tyrannies, pleads for their victims, and unflinchingly questions the tragic. Reflect with her on theanswers she receives from the political world today John Berger About the Author : Arundhati Roy is the author of The God of Small Things, which won theBooker Prize in 1997.

  1.  Fantastic view of facts from other side of fence 8 April, 2013 On
    I picked this book from Heathrow airport - on a long flight back to India. I finished entire book on that flight, was so engrossed with the way thigns are presented.
    While there are two sides to every coin, state and TRP hungry media - highlights the side which suits their interest at a particular point of time. In this book - you hear views on afzal guru, maoists, sterlite - that we have not heard before.
    Yes -she goes emotional and makes some claims which she will never be able to back up with data - but she is human too.
    One should read it - for the sake of knowing - that in this world of information overflow - perception might not be reality!
