Young Arundhati Roy starring in In Which Annie Gives It Those Ones (1989), a film Roy wrote herself, recounting her own experiences in the School of Planning and Architecture, Delhi.

"It was as a student of architecture that I began to see that in India we have citizens and ‘non-citizens’, those who matter and those who don’t. Those who are visible and those who are not. Those who are included in our planners’ plans and those who are reflexively excluded from them. It was as a student of architecture that I began to ask questions of my mediocre professors about why I was being brainwashed into becoming yet another mediocre manufacturer of concrete boxes who unquestioningly served the interests of the privileged. It was there that I began to try and understand the endless conflict between power and powerlessness – the conflict that is the central preoccupation of much of my work now." [x]

I could be so much more productive if 90% of my thought process wasn’t: “What else can I do for money? How can I quit this job and still live?”
