If you want to use any of this material contact me and there is a very good chance I will say YES.
However, if you just cut and paste into your own blog or whatever and pass it off as your own then there's a very good chance I will find out. Don't fall into the trap of thinking the internet is so vast and expanding so fast (note the fancy internal rhyme)] that no one will know.
Reblogged this on mira prabhu and commented:
I read The God of Small Things (Arundhati Roy) on a long plane flight from Bangalore to New York. I loved it. But recently I picked it up again and found I was uninterested. What happened? Well, for one thing I am no longer dazzled by good writing alone – I read to grow, and I enjoy spiritual messages that I can digest and keep. Perhaps this is the answer…however, many might consider AR’s work spiritual, for certainly she is (to me, and I am aware that many disagree) a Spiritual Warrior. It is the rare Indian woman who dares to take on the patriarchy; she could easily have lived out her life peacefully, considering the money she made from her book, but here she is, always fighting her beautiful battles, despite fierce male opposition…..bravo, Arundhati, and may your tribe (esp. in India) increase!!!
Thanks for reblogging Mira. You said that when you started to reread The God of Small Things, you were left uninterested despite your great regard for Arundhati Roy as a writer and as a person. I wonder why you feel you got as much as you could get out of it the first time…when I reread books I love I always find new things to engage me or I’m reminded why I fell in love in the first place.
