»The Ministry of Utmost Happiness« takes us on a journey of many years - the story spooling outwards from the cramped neighbourhoods of Old Delhi to the forests of Central India, where, from time to time, »normalcy« is declared. The story has two main strands. One follows Anjum,who used to be Aftab, a hijra, or transwoman, struggling to make a life for herself in Delhi. The other follows Tilo, a thorny and irresistible architect turned activist (who seems to be modeled on Roy herself), and the three men who fall in love with her. The heroes in this novel are people who have been broken by the world they live in and then rescued, mended by love and hope. There is more than a touch of fairy tale in the book´s moral simplicity: Opposed dualities prevail: innocence (embodied by puppies, kittens, little girls) versus evil (torturers, soldiers, shopping malls).
