2549 : Reading list 2019 : #16 : The Doctor and the Saint by Arundhati Roy

I like Arundhati Roy's literary skills. I also liked that she has put her skills to further the cause in which she believes in. Her stance is almost always anti-establishment, a bit like Noam Chomsky.

Do I always believe what she writes? No. But do I like it? Yes. It almost always gives me a different perspective.

Like this book, The Doctor and the Saint opens my worldview to include Dr BR Ambedkar and of course the horrible monster called caste.

Read it, be educated and of course flip on her skills. Its hard to give up on a successful career and take up a cause. and that's why I love her.

On a scale of 10 its a 10. At 171 pages brings my 2019 total to 2735 pages.

A definite read. Also I love the cover image :-)
