Arundhati Roy, the famed Indian writer, has become an icon of many things ‘anti,’ anti-nuclear power, anti-dam, anti-globalisation, anti-war. In person she appears shy, vulnerable and graceful. Her luminous, dark-brown eyes seem to go on smiling even when her face occasionally is not. When she starts speaking, her balanced, Indian harmony is still there but the articulation and especially the power of her responses are utterly unexpected from her delicate persona.
