Arundhati Roy at Al Jazeera

It's a curious video because of the mix of ethnicities involved: a British interviewer, an Indian interviewed, a Mexican site and an Arab TV...

But most important is how she analyzes some matters: how the Gandhian ethos is denounced as impossible to implement in the jungle because, after all, it is a performance that requires an audience, or how borders are becoming blurry, with all the elites from different nations having de facto seceded themselves into "a country of their own"...

Found via Revolution in South Asia, originally from Al Jazeera.
