V Pandimeena, J Keerthana

In the post-colonial dialectics subaltern or underclass occupies prominent place which incorporates the intact people that is subsidiary in terms of class, age, gender, and place of work, or in any other way. It is the subject position that defines sublternity. Yet once it operates in stipulations of class, age and gender, it is more psychological than physical. The lack and scarcity, isolation and estrangement, defeat and subordination, the acceptance and peace, the flexibility and ignore mark the lives of subaltern, even when they resist and rise up, they feel bounded and defeated by their subject positions. They have no representatives or spokesperson in the society they live in and so vulnerably tolerate and get unimportant place or no place at all in the history and culture of which they are the essential part as human beings. The white tiger of this novel is Balram Halwai a poor Indian villager whose great ambition leads him to the Zenith of Indian commerce culture, the world of the Bangalore entrepreneur. On the occasion of the president of Chinas impending trip to Bangalore Balram writes a letter to him describing his transformation and his experience as driver and servant who a wealthy Indian family, which he thinks exemplifies the contradictions and complications of Indian society.
