Noted author Arundhati Roy has suggested that a committee of experienced people should be formed to mediate between the Maoists and government but ruled out being a part of it, saying she does not have the "skills" required to be a mediator. "Not really. I would not like to be (a mediator or part of people's committee to mediate between government and Maoists). I don't think I have those skills," she told CNN-IBN's Devil's Advocate programme.
"I don't know. I don't think (that) I would be good at it you know. I am a maverick.....I'll try. I don't know how to think about it," she said.
The author was asked whether she would be prepared to be a mediator or a part of any committee formed to mediate between the Maoists and the government.
