Arundhati Roy at the Azadi Conference.
You cannot just leave it there. For you know what is the Indian State’s greatest art? It’s not killing people, that is its second greatest art. It’s to wait. To wait, wait and wait and hope people’s energies will just run down.
There is more to resistance than trowing to stones. You have to see how is the State using people? Whether it’s the British State in India or the Indian State in Kashmir or Nagaland Or Chattisgardh they are in the business of creating elites to manage their occupation.
