Man Booker Prize Winner and renowned author Arundhati Roy has a northeast connection not known to many and for the reasons she visited Nagaland recently and spent a day exploring Khonoma, the first Green village in India on the eve of Christmas.

Several destinations waiting for Arundhati

The well-known author of the country is having a Northeast connection that is not known to many. Arundhati was born in Shillong, the capital city of Meghalaya.

Arundhati recently visited Nagaland to celebrate Christmas in her own way as she spent her one day in the state exploring the first Green village of the nation situated in Nagaland.

She arrived in Kohima on Christmas and stayed at Razhu Pru for a couple of days before leaving for another destination on Wednesday.

Roy has recently interacted with the media discussing her book and “I never know what I am going to do next or where I am going to be. That’s just the way I am”.

With her latest book of fiction, “The Ministry of Utmost Happiness” (which was also longlisted for the Man Booker Prize earlier this year) being translated in different languages, she impressed upon that several other destinations are waiting for her. Her debut novel, “The God of Small Things” had won the Man Booker Prize in 1997.

The people who are aware of the type of writing Arundhati use to write in her books know that she relates her own emotions to depict the characters of her books, she said, “well, the thing is if you are a writer, you have to be everybody- like you have to be the villain, you have to be the sad people, the dangerous people”.

However, describing her stay in Nagaland as pleasant, the critically acclaimed author said that she particularly enjoyed Naga food and hopes to come back again.
