Truth | 9 years ago | Reply | Recommend Arundhati Roy is perfect example for how people can exploit freedom of speech for personal gain. There are lot of issue which she can take up and help people. But she knows she can not get the international fame and name if she takes up such issues. Instead she is taking up these unwanted issues. Its time for Arundhati Roy to realise and stop doing the worst politics, which even none of the corrupt politicians might have not tried to do. Arundhati Roy worst exploiter of people period! - Message from Canada.
