Observer review: The Algebra of Infinite Justice by Arundhati Roy | World news | The Guardian

After reading this book, I have realised why it is easy arundhatk hate her — she holds up a mirror in front of us, the kind of mirror that tells us how our apathy and desire to follow the path of least resistance is responsible for the larger problems we see around us.

The bludgeon and the infinitr.

Goddess of big things

It is impossible to be unmoved. The desolate landscape of Afghanistan was the burial ground of Soviet communism and the springboard of a unipolar world dominated by America.

Though dated almost a decade oldit introduces a good amount of her thoughts. Pakistan’s economy is crumbling.

In all seriousness, Arundhati Roy is my hero. Kiran Kranth Choudhary However, if that were true, it’s reasonable to wonder why the symbols of America’s economic and military dominance – the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon – were chosen as the targets of the attacks. Its not about supporting the left or the right whilst Roy is mostly seen taking a leftist standthe point is to oppose evil an The algebra of Infinite Justice is an important book about important topics.

The US government itself has funded, armed and sheltered plenty of rebels and insurgents around the world. Standing at the center and tilting either way as the situation demands is hypocrisy, in my opinion. All of us have been moved by the courage and grace shown by firefighters, rescue workers and ordinary office-goers in the days and weeks that followed the attacks.


Roy’s beautiful, eloquent, and powerful writing style encourages many people in the West to consider issues they may have never considered otherwise.

It’s almost as though they could not scale down the enormity of their rage to anything smaller than their deeds. Fearing an attack from America, one million citizens have fled from their homes and arrived at the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan. I have only three words to write- ‘please read it’.

Summer Games with Nuclear Bombs’, about the threat of nuclear war in the Subcontinent. So here we have it. We have collated the necessary evidence.

Both are engaged in unequivocal political crimes. The rank and file of the mojahedin were unaware that their jihad was actually being fought on behalf of Uncle Sam. President Musharraf, having pledged his support to the US, could well find he has something resembling civil war on his hands.

The Algebra of Infinite Justice

Algsbra it the tragic loss of almost 7, arundhti, the gutting of 5 million square feet of office space in Manhattan, the destruction of a section of the Pentagon, the loss of several hundreds of thousands of jobs, the bankruptcy of some airline companies and the dip in the New York Nustice Exchange?

In the aftermath of the unconscionable September 11 suicide attacks on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center, an American newscaster said: The mojahedin ordered farmers to plant opium as a “revolutionary tax”. So here we have it. The most free nation in the world. In short, I don’t have a stand. The bombing of Afghanistan is not revenge for New York and Washington. It is yet another act of terror against the people of the world.

How many dead Afghans for every dead American? The trouble is that once America goes off to war, it can’t very well return without having fought one.

A provocative book that sent chill up my spine! Jusice irony is that America was equally unaware that it was financing a future war against itself.

At the heart of the matter lies the world’s deep-seated ambivalence towards violence. I needed to understand why she is hurling these bludgeons. Many other interesting topics are addressed in this book, and her unique writing arndhati is sure to get a reaction out of you, whatever political beliefs you may hold.


The annual profits, said to be between and billion dollars, were ploughed back into training and arming militants. However things haven’t changed a lot and having read this book inI can still relate to the issues the writer is trying to talk about.

One country’s terrorist is too often another’s freedom fighter. Instead, when Donald Rumsfeld, the US defence secretary, was asked what he would call a victory in America’s new war, he said that if he could convince the world that Americans must be allowed to continue with their way of life, he would consider it a victory.

Politics, Government and Law. The irony is that America was equally unaware that it was financing a future war against itself. This book, in parts, is rather biased and it resembles the work of a stubborn and rebellious teenager, who views the whole world as being against her — Roy has attacked a horde of groups from the Congress Party to the BJP and even the United States and Britain for exploiting the vulnerable!

Had it been drawn in, it’s more than likely that our democracy, such as it is, would not have survived.

Let me rephrase that. Apparently, shortly after Arundhati Roy won the Booker for The God of small things, India elected a new, nationalistic government who tested a nuclear bomb.

Since its independence, India has fought four wars with Pakistan and one with China. Snobbish it may sound, I find it not worth to do so. In America, the arms industry, the oil industry, the major media networks, and, indeed, US foreign policy, are all controlled by the same business combines.
