‘The Ministry of Utmost Happiness’ by Arundhati Roy

Gyaan Adab


The Book Club


Gathered to discuss Booker Prize winner, Arundhati Roy’s recent novel, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness, The Book Club witnessed a lively exchange of ideas last evening. Meenakshi Alimchandani, briefly introduced the book to our patrons. She stressed upon the poetry that Roy has created in her book and the attention she has given to the hijra community in our country. This led to a discussion about the the author fusing her literary projects with activism. This, as one can imagine, led to a long train of inputs from the audience members. This event saw great audience participation, and Gyaan Adab is eager for the next Book Club meet.
