Talking about the book, she is indeed amazing! She is of great quality and despite using text-liners, the pages seem fine and new. The delivery was kind of late but, after getting the book, it was worth waiting for.
Quality wise the the book is Original and has finest quality of paper and print. Binding is excellent.
Content wise it is good. Essay "Doctor and Saint" written by Arundhati Roy is damn good. But at many places her criticism on Gandhi seems unnecessary and illogical at some places. As she deliberately tries to put Gandhi into a frame ( i.e., misogynist, castist and favouring capialists) by using some facts (which are true indeed) without giving mention about the big picture. Cherry picking left you with half knowledge or say with certain agenda without complete insight into a issue. A issue which really needs in-depth analysis.
Speech of Ambedkar is very well written and it left you with many thoughts storming in your mind about our society, traditions, beliefs, customs and so on. The damage caste syatem has done to our society is irreversible and irreparable.
Deliver was also superb.. got my order exactly on time as that was given by Amazon.
Clearly it will highlight the hardwork of the greatest intellectuals of all time. But arundhatyrs will get a chance to judge Ambedkar on his own idealogy.
The Best line of this book
"A man who wore suit whole his life and died in debts."
The Main highlight of this book is to let us differentiate between A Moderator and An Orhtodox Extremist.
Hit it compatriots time to find out yourself that who is a bigger casteist, the guy who comes lower to you according to caste system, or the guy who is superior to you accroding to the Vedas and Shastras.
