The trouble with people like Arundhati Roy is that they are capable only of being rabble-rousers. I refer specifically to this opinion piece of hers in the Times of India that I read belatedly berating India for not doing enough about the war in Sri Lanka.
She ends her piece with an impassioned appeal to the world – whatever that refers to – to “step in. Now. Before it’s too late.” Step in, yes, Ms. Roy, and do what? I understand that there is a colossal humanitarian tragedy unfolding in that island. As a Tamilian (and even otherwise), my heart bleeds when I consider the plight of those caught in the middle of this terrible disaster, and mostly for no fault of their own. Yet, what can India or Norway or the United States or any other country do in this regard? Other than your characteristic mud-flinging at the powers that be, what have YOU done?
