Response to Arundhati Roy

Continuing with the discussion around "The Doctor and the Saint," Rajmohan Gandhi counters Arundhati Roy's response in four areas--Gandhi and the Blacks of South Africa, Gandhi and caste, Gandhi and Ambedkar, and the subject of joint/separate electorates for Dalits.

I welcome Arundhati Roy’s reply (“All the World’s a Half-Built Dam,” EPW, 20 June 2015) to my critique (“Independence and Social Justice: The Ambedkar–Gandhi Debate,” EPW, 11 April 2015) of her text, “The Doctor and the Saint (Roy 2014).” No doubt, the readers will examine the critique and the reply. Still, I may be permitted a few comments on the latter.
