Aravind Adiga’s “The White Tiger”

leave a comment »

Read Aravind Adiga’s “The White Tiger” a week ago. hmmm let me see what I remember about the book…

  • Yeah, the huge divide that exists among Indians- social, cultural, and most importantly, economical.
  • The hypocrisy– of the have-nots, of the politicians.
  • The rooster coop.
  • The India of ‘Darkness’ and the India of ‘light’.

Given (or rather, taken 😉 ) some more time I could write a few more things, but this should suffice. Well, I’m not going to analyse the flaws and what-I-think are the weak points. What i found interesting was it succeeded, for most of the part, in showing things from the point of view of someone whom most of us have not bothered to care- a driver-servant. A reality check and one of the best India-not-shining books 🙂

PS: review summaries of the book here.
