Arundhati Roy on the Rising Hindu Right in India, the Gujarat Massacre & Her Love of Eduardo Galeano

We speak with renown Indian writer Arundhati Roy on the rise of Hindu nationalism and the pressures she experienced as the "face of the new India," which came at a time when the Hindu nationalist BJP party came to power. She has just published her second novel, "The Ministry of Utmost Happiness." It’s her first work of fiction since the Booker Prize-winning "The God of Small Things" published in 1997.
