Abstract

Arvind Adiga’s The Booker Prize winning Novel, ‘The White Tiger’ has earned the reputation in contemporary literature along with ‘The God of Small Things’, ‘The Namesake’, ‘The Inheritance of Loss’ etc. In my earlier paper, ‘Adiga’s ‘The hite Tiger’ as an apocalyptic work ( Singh,78-83) attention as focused on the dangerous scenario developing as a result of the widening gulf between the rich and the poor. In an article ‘Rewriting the Canon’? The critic Jagdish Batra regards ‘The White Tiger’ as an outsider’s rather than insider’s view point. The present paper is designed to show how victimized by social exclusion and deprivation, the latent rabel in the protagonist (Balram Halwai) boils for individual and social change. Quite diffferent from canonical characters, there is something radicalizing about his actions & reactions towards situations.
