Veteran Writer Arundhati Roy’s Upcoming Book ‘The Ministry of Utmost Happiness’ is releasing on 6the June, Gets Free Publicity Because of Rawal’s Cheap Comment.
Arundhati Roy won the Booker Prize for her debut novel ‘The God of Small Things’. Now, 19 years later she is set to come out with her next work of fiction titled ‘The Ministry of Utmost Happiness’ in June 2017. Roy’s latest book will be published by Hamish Hamilton UK and Penguin India. Talking about her latest book she said in a statement, “I am glad to report that the mad souls (even the wicked ones) in ‘The Ministry of Utmost Happiness’ have found a way into the world and that I have found my publishers, To publish this book is both a pleasure and an honor.”
The Ministry of Utmost Happiness takes us on a journey of many years the story spooling outwards from the cramped neighbourhoods of Old Delhi into the burgeoning new metropolis and beyond, to the Valley of Kashmir and the forests of Central India, where war is peace and peace is war, and where, from time to time, ‘normalcy’ is declared.
Anjum, who used to be Aftab, unrolls a threadbare carpet in a city graveyard that she calls home. A baby appears quite suddenly on a pavement, a little after midnight, in a crib of litter. The enigmatic S. Tilottama is as much of a presence as she is an absence in the lives of the three men who loved her.
The Ministry of Utmost Happiness is at once an aching love story and a decisive remonstration. It is told in a whisper, in a shout, through tears and sometimes with a laugh. Its heroes are people who have been broken by the world they live in and then rescued, mended by love and by hope. For this reason, they are as steely as they are fragile, and they never surrender. This ravishing, magnificent book reinvents what a novel can do and can be. And it demonstrates on every page the miracle of Arundhati Roy’s storytelling gifts.
A couple of days back Actor and MP, Paresh Rawal on twitter made a cheap comment on the writer because of her book which deals with the Kashmir issue, he tweeted ‘Instead of tying stone pelter on the army jeep tie Arundhati Roy‘. Which shows the mental state of the actor and also raised sparks on the social media. Later Rawal deleted the tweet but what is done is done and you cannot undo it. The already awaited book has got more attention and free publicity, all thanks to Rawal’s mindless comment.
