Arundhati Roy as mediator in Govt-Maoist peace talks?

Arundhati Roy never ceases to amaze me.

I'm not surprised Kishenji, the top Maist leader, proposes her name as a mediator. Not only is Arundhati savvy and knowlegeable about such an impotrant issue, her integrity is also above board.

But Arundhati does not want to be a mediator, saying she has not got the required skill-set of a mediator. She would rather act as an observer.

That is real Arundhati Roy who knows her limitations and understands how she could be useful to such a crucial talk.

But would the Indian govt agree to take her even as an observer? Nope.
