The God of Small Things is Not Big


Arundhati Roy wrote a book that won the Booker

It was her only book her only Booker



Roy wrote no more books

No more Booker


This is what makes us sad


Makes us think that her god

Has forgotten her things


This prayer is for her god


May he remember

The small things he saw

When he was the god

Who shared it bigger

    :-)Her “Unaccustomed Earth”-a collection of short stories is a good point to start with-I think it is available in pdf format on the net-happy reading

    Oh what an interesting take!Sometimes it is disappointing to see our favourite people-celebrity or not-fall by the side and not reach their possible full potential:-)
