Writer-activist Arundhati Roy’s recent polemic on Maoism, development and governance has angered many in the UPA government, but the Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh’s daughter, Ms Daman Singh, thinks that her writings are an ‘eye-opener’.
Talking to mediapersons at the sidelines of the Kovalam literary festival here, Ms Singh said: “She is a powerful writer and her writings are an eye-opener. I usually follow all her writings in popular magazines. She has a unique and powerful way of presenting things.”
