From Publishers Weekly. Starred Review. A brutal view of India's class struggles is cunningly presented in Adiga's debut about a racist.
But they are in the racket too. They take their bribe, they ignore the discrepancies in the case.
And life goes on Adiga Balram briefly describes how corrupt the Indian law enforcement is and how if you were wealthy, they would accomplish anything they were inquired. Consequently, David H. When he becomes the great entrepreneur he always dreamed of, Balram starts off running with his new White Tiger Drivers Company by paying off the assistant commissioner of the police department.
According to P. It is because of the corrupt law enforcement that corruption is slowly getting worse in India.
In fact, it is the people that are corrupt. These police officers will do almost anything to get more money and if that means breaking the law, then they will do it.
Balram takes advantage of the opportunities put in front of him and becomes part of the system and raises his social mobility. As Balram transitions into Ashok Sharma, he comes face to face with the police department to accomplish his objective; to gain his White Tiger Drivers Company a job.
To do so, he bribes the police assistant commissioner, which helps him in the long run with some issues.
He was the worst kind of man, who had nothing in his mind but taking money from everyone who came into his office. But he was my scum Adiga In her absence, Ashok goes out to bars and clubs, hiring a prostitute one night, and reconnecting with a former lover on another.
Although Ashok is a relatively kind master, Balram realizes that whatever generosity Ashok has shown him is only a fraction of what he can afford.

Balram plans to murder Ashok and escape with the bag of the money that he carries around the city to bribe politicians.
Balram is also held back by the arrival in Delhi of his young cousin Dharam, who Kusum sends from Dhanbad with the demand that Balram help raise him. Balram finally resolves to proceed with the murder, using a weapon he has fashioned out of a broken liquor bottle.
One day as he drives Ashok to deliver a particularly large bribe, Balram pretends that there is a mechanical problem with the car.
Once Balram regains his nerves in Bangalore enough not to fear immediate capture, he begins wandering the city and listening to conversations in cafes —just as he did in the teashop in Dhanbad—to plan his next move. Balram creates a taxi company called White Tiger Drivers to bring call center workers home safely at night, and the venture is an enormous success.
By the time he sits down to tell his story, Balram is a wealthy man who keeps to himself, still fearful that one day his crime will be discovered.
However, he concludes his letter to Wen Jiabao claiming that even if he is found out, he will never regret his crime: it was worth committing simply because it enabled him to experience life as a free man rather than as a servant.
