Ashok too is portrayed to be trapped in the metaphorical Rooster Coop: his family controls what he does and society dictates how he acts.

The white tiger review

Soon she would become part of the black mound and the pale-skinned dog would start licking her. The novel portrays India's society as very negative towards the lower social caste. The White Tiger has traversed the class struggle in India at a time of modernization and globalization. He takes over the job of the main driver, from a small car to a heavy-luxury described Honda City. There, Balram decided to become a chauffeur, and raised money to take driving lessons from a taxi driver. In Laxmangarh, Balram was raised in a large, poor family from the Halwai caste, a caste that indicates sweet-makers. Globalization[ edit ] The White Tiger takes place in a time in which increased technology has led to world globalization, and India is no exception. While working there he begins to learn about India's government and economy from the customers' conversations. It involves both deliberate methods used by the upper class and a mentality enforced by the underclass on itself. Balram explains that his own family was almost certainly killed by Ashok's relatives as retribution for his murder. Balram faints for a second time when he goes to the zoo. Although his taxi service is not an international business, Balram plans to keep up with the pace of globalization and change his trade when need be. But there is no point any more in someone like me thinking of myself as a victim of you [Adiga has cast me, not for the first time, as a colonial oppressor]. But Balram gets his break when a rich man hires him as a chauffeur, and takes him to live in Delhi.

You never know when those things can come in handy. The White Tiger is therefore not limited to social commentary about India, rather it extends itself to India relative to the wider world. Balram describes himself as a bad servant but a good listener and decides to become a driver.

By resisting the life of Darkness and by killing Ashok, he now leads a life in which he can choose his own fate. Ashok is forced to bribe government officials in order to carry out his business activities.

the white tiger conclusion

The alpha figure of his family was his pushy grandmother, Kusum. In any event, Balram tells his reader that the yellow and the brown men will take over the world from the white man, who has become and this is where Balram's analysis gets shaky effete through toleration of homosexuality, too slim and physically weakened by overexposure to mobile phones.

Much of the novel traces his growth from a meek peasant to an inflamed individual capable of murder in pursuit of his own success. This has been corrected.

The white tiger light and darkness

There are those in the light—politicians, businessmen, entrepreneurs, to name a few, who prosper financially and sit at the top of society—and there are those in the Darkness, trapped in lives of poverty and subservience. While they are supposed to be sweetmakers, or Halweis, they live in poverty. Balram only faints twice in his life. They do not try to get out of the coop. He is a smart child but is forced to leave school in order to help pay for his cousin's dowry and begins to work in a teashop with his brother in Dhanbad. Thankfully - for all its failings comparisons with the accomplished sentences of Sebastian Barry's shortlisted The Secret Scripture could only be unfavourable - The White Tiger is nothing like that. Balram was terrified by the prospect of going to jail, but was relieved when the Stork arrived and casually mentioned that they had gotten out of the incident through their police connections. The alpha figure of his family was his pushy grandmother, Kusum. No danger to you.

Globalization has assisted in the creation of an American atmosphere in India. He is referred to as the "white tiger" [9] which also happens to be the title of the book.
