A book that empathized every angle of the downtrodden and the helpless servants. Through the character Balram Halwai, Adiga has brought out the "so-called" democracy, the corruption, the freedom that every servant longs in the basement of a gigantic apartment of the city, the dowry, and all the themes that make the poor people powerless. His wizardry of metaphorical characterization is so compelling to pick this book. Not only Balram, with this kind of a novel, but Aravind Adiga himself is 'THE WHITE TIGER'. Lastly, his predictions on Bangalore is terrific and left me without words to describe. Loved it!
