Abstract

Arundhati Roy,  the Booker prize winning author of “The God Of Small Things”,  wrote “ The Ministry of Utmost Happiness”,  her second fiction,  twenty years after her debut with the former.  The novel weaves together stories of people navigating some of the darkest episodes of Modern Indian history,  from land reform that dispossessed poor farmers to the 2002 Godhra train burning and Kashmir insurgency.  “The Ministry of Utmost Happiness” is at once an aching story and a decisive demonstration. One follows Anjum,  a trans-woman,  struggling to make a life for herself in Delhi.  The world she conjures is often brutal.  Psychoanalysis,  the Freudian theory is dealt in this novel.  The story begins and ends in the graveyard.  It possess the strong voice of the LGBT community in Modern India.
