CHARACTERS The White Tiger Aravind Adiga ì 8 READ READ È The White Tiger Introducing a major literary talent The White Tiger offers a story of coruscating wit blistering suspense and uestionable morality told by the most volatile captivating and utterly inimitable narrator that this millennium has yet seen Balram Halwai is a complicated man Servant Philosopher Entrepreneur Murderer Over the course of seven nights by the scattered light of a preposterous chandelier Balram tells us the terrible and transfixing story of how he came to be a success in life having nothing but his own wits to help him along Born in the dark heart of India Balram gets a break when he is hired as a driver for his village's wealthiest man two house Pomeranians Puddles and Cuddles and the rich man's very unlucky son. This review contains what may be spoilers Even though I do not think it will spoil your reading experience I am putting the warning here because one reader pointed it out Before I begin my review a statutory warning to all my patriotic Indian brothers and sisters this is India bashing large scale If you are the sort of person who gets all worked up when any aspect of India is criticised this book is not for youThat said Arvind Adiga bashes India where it has to be bashed No honest reader will be able to dispute that the picture of India he paints is a false one You will find the majority of Indians embarassedly changing the topic when Bihar the state Adiga names Darkness enters the conversation Most of the things he mentions are not only possible but probable and even likely You only have to read any Indian newspaper over the period of a week to know itBut I believe the author fails in the creation of Munna alias Balram Halwai the protagonist because his voice is totally out of character with the person It is the supercilious voice of a Westernised Indian detached from his home country by education and station in life that comes through The street smart Munna who murdered his employer and set up his business in Bangalore will talk in an entirely different way for example he will never say five hundred thousand rupees he ll say five lakhs Here the character just becomes a mouthpiece for the authorSecondly Adiga goes overboard in criticising India so that some of his examples become rather extreme the immediate one that comes to mind is the schoolteacher boozing and sleeping in the classroom In some other cases they are downright silly Balram buys a dosa and throws out all the potatoes before giving to Mukesh whereas he could have bought a dosa easily without the potatoes these are two varieties It also confirms the opinion I formed of Adiga from his bio that he is that type of Indian Lord Macaulay wanted to create Indian only by birth but English in spiritLastly the story failed to hold my interest Take out all the social criticism and it is nothing but a hollow shell And the gimmicks like framing it as a letter to the Chinese premier are trite to the point of being nauseatingThe only thing that forced me to give two stars to this work is some of the pithy statements Adiga makes about Indian society Especially the ones about how caste ridden India was a zoo with all animals in separate cages when the British let them all out so now only the ones with the big bellies and the ones with the small bellies are left about automobile horns during a traffic jam joining together to form a single wail like a lost calf wailing for its mother and the one about how the major diseases India faces are cholera typhoid and election fever though I would also include cricket

CHARACTERS The White Tiger Aravind Adiga ì 8 READ READ È The White Tiger The worshippers; the ancient and Internet cultures; the water buffalo and trapped in so many kinds of cages that escape is almost impossible the white tiger And with a charisma as undeniable as it is unexpected Balram teaches us that religion doesn't create virtue and money doesn't solve every problem but decency can still be found in a corrupt world and you can get what you want out of life if you eavesdrop on the right conversations The White Tiger recalls The Death of Vishnu and Bangkok 8 in ambition scope and narrative genius with a mischief and personality all its own Amoral irreverent deeply endearing and utterly contemporary this novel is an international publishing sensation and a startling provocative debut. Balram Halwai grew up in the Darkness the immense swath of rural India where the poor vastly outnumber the rich and where the right of the rich to oppress the poor is rarely uestionedBy dint of his intelligence and ambition he becomes the No 2 driver to a local landlord nicknamed The Stork and when he discovers the No 1 driver has been hiding a secret is able to displace him and eventually move to Delhi with the landlord s Westernized son Mr Ashok and his modern wife Pinky Madamuite early in this debut novel Balram writing a long letter to Chinese premier Wen Jiabao who is about to visit India confesses that he has murdered Mr Ashok a crime that enabled him to move to Bangalore and set himself up as an entrepreneur The flashback journey he relates in his letter describes how he came to that point and in the process it lays out a sardonic seriocomic saga of the plight of India s poor At one point Balram tries to explain why the poor don t rise up to overwhelm their masters and the best metaphor he can come up with is the chicken market in old Delhi where live roosters sit powerless in cages beneath the carcasses of their freshly slaughtered brothers He writesEvery day on the roads of Delhi some chauffeur is driving an empty car with a black suitcase sitting on the backseat Inside that suitcase is a million two million rupees money than that chauffeur will see in his lifetime If he took the money he could go to America Australia anywhere and start a new life He could go inside the five star hotels he has dreamed about all his life and only seen from the outside He could take his family to Goa to England Yet he takes that black suitcase where his master wants He puts it down where he is meant to and never touches a rupee WhyBecause Indians are the world s most honest people like the prime minister s booklet will inform you No It s because 999 percent of us are caught in the Rooster Coop just like those poor guys in the poultry marketThis novel won the Booker Prize this year sparked outrage among many in India but than anything else it tells an entertaining tale with the strong distinctive voice of a man whose soul has had to move from servitude to independence and who despite his horrific deed finds the freedom to live by his own standard of decency
