Arundhati Roy (@arundhatiroyfc) is an Indian author, essayist, and activist who was born in Kerala in 1960. She studied architecture at the Delhi School of Architecture. In 1997, Roy published her first novel, “The God of Small Things,” which won the prestigious Booker Prize for Fiction. The novel has sold over six million copies worldwide and has been the subject of controversy due to its exploration of sensitive social issues, unique narrative structure, and themes.
