UNTOUCHABILITY IN THE GOD OF SMALL THINGS BY ARUNDHATI
Volume: 1 Issue: 2 2011
Arundhati Roy came into the realm of literature in the year 1997 with her debut novel ‘The God of small things’ which begged the coveted Booker Prize for literature. It is also the first time an Indo-English woman writer won such prestigious Booker Prize for literature. Through this novel, she describes the conflict between Syrian Christions and untouchables. This novel also shows that untouchables are not suffering from Hindus but also from other religious communites in this free and democratic India. Thus, untouchability is sandwiched between the Hindu majority and other religious minority.
