Meet Balram Halwai, the 'White tiger': servant, philosopher, entrepreneur, murderer... Born in a village in the heart of India, The son of a rickshaw Puller, Balram is taken out of school and put to work in a teashop. As he crushes coal and wipes tables, he nurses a dream of escape. His big chance comes when a rich landlord hires him as a chauffeur for his son, daughter-in-law, and their two pomeranian dogs. From behind the wheels of a honda, Balram sees Delhi and begins to see how the tiger might escape his cage. For surely any successful man must spill a little blood on his way to the top? The White tiger is a tale of two India's. Balram's journey from the darkness of village life to the light of entrepreneurial success is utterly amoral, brilliantly irreverent, deeply endearing, and altogether unforgettable.
