It is an obvious fact that Arundhati Roy, both as an emic and an etic, is a keen observer of Indian society and its fabric. She ventures to discover solutions to some abhorrent social issues through her scything criticism and logical thinking. Roy is a social reformer and an activist for the downtrodden and the marginal, a seditionist for the bureaucrats and a revolutionary literary spark for the twentieth-first century litterateurs. The aim of this research paper is to explore the issues of identity, border and societal marginality in Roy's most recent novel The Ministry of Utmost Happiness.
