The impact of globalization on Indian culture and literature: Aravind Adiga’s The White Tiger
Author(s): Richa Sharma
Abstract: The present study analyses the impact of Globalization on Indian Literature and culture with reference to Aravind Adiga’s The White Tiger. The effects of Globalization can be seen in the Indian Literature. Indian fiction finds reflections of various globalization themes. Globalization has assisted in the creation of an American atmosphere in India. Indian culture is no exception to this transformation process. With the emergence of globalization in India, our age old traditions and customs have loosened up their hold. With special reference to The White Tiger, the paper also sheds light on the social, cultural, and economic impact of globalization on the people of India, particularly in terms of its role in widening the gap between the upper and lower classes. It argues that globalization has contributed in creating two worlds in India: the lighted world and the world of Darkness, where the poor are marginalized and humiliated.
