Aravind Adiga with his book The White Tiger.In an interview related to his novel The White Tiger, he spoke about the incorporations of the book. He explained, At a time when India is going through great changes and, with China, is likely to inherit the world from the West, it is important that writers like me try to highlight the brutal injustices of society. In India, there has never been strong central political control, which is probably why the family is still so important. If youre rude to your mother in India, its a crime as bad as stealing would be here. India and China are too powerful to be controlled by the West anymore. Weve got to get beyond that as Indians and take responsibility for what is holding us back..
