?Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose? – this famous quote by Lyndon B. Johnson is a reflection of what we are about to uncover while reading the Man Booker Prize-winning novel -?The White Tiger?by Aravind Adiga. This book covers various issues that are plaguing the Indian society today, such as the class system, poverty, religion, corruption, and loyalty, through the eyes of the character named Balram Halwai. With the effective use of dark humour, Adiga takes us through the journey of Balram Halwai from being the chauffeur for a rich landlord in Delhi to establishing his own taxi service. So, are you ready to witness Halwai’s rise from the darkness? If you just shouted a roaring yes to that question, then this book should the next one on your “to read” list.?
