The White Tiger: A Novel
Winner of the Man Booker Prize 2008, this story of coruscating wit and blistering suspense explores modern Indian culture with charisma and shows that decency can still be found in a corrupt world—and that you can get what you want out of life if you eavesdrop on the right conversations.The white tiger of this novel is Balram Halwai, a poor Indian villager whose great ambition leads him to the zenith of Indian business culture, the world of the Bangalore entrepreneur. On the occasion of the president of China’s impending trip to Bangalore, Balram writes a letter to him describing his transformation and his experience as driver and servant to a wealthy Indian family, which he thinks exemplifies the contradictions and complications of Indian society.
The White Tiger recalls The Death of Vishnu and Bangkok 8 in ambition, scope, and narrative genius, with a mischief and personality all its own. Amoral, irreverent, deeply endearing, and utterly contemporary, this novel is an international publishing sensation—and a startling, provocative debut.
A Tribute to My Nan who passed away September 6th 2003. The first memories I have of my Nan is of sitting by the fire on a cold winters day. Nan was knitting and had found me some bright yellow wool, I was going to make a duck, and with Nan’s patients and what seemed like a whole weekend , we finished that duck and boy was I proud. As a child a lot of weekends were spent with my Nan and Granddad. My Granddad would pick me up in his car on a Saturday evening and we would get some sweets and drive the Hospital, A M Lee ward to pick Nan up from work. Sometimes I was even allowed to go onto the ward and wait for her. I remember her coffee colour nurses uniform, thinking “I am gona wear one of those when I’m a nurse”. We would then go home and Nan would be first in and straight up the stairs to put the electric blankets on. We would all have supper, usually Rivita, but Granddad always preferred fish and chips. I slept in the middle bedroom, Nan would find me a book to take to bed and then come with me and tuck me in. There were no spiders in that room, Nan would always check under the bed for me. She would say “NO spiders under here Cheryl, just a big Tiger fast asleep” Now Sundays were great, Nan cooked the best Sunday dinner ever. Vegetables from Granddads garden and thick white sauce to pour over the green beans and huge Yorkshire pudding. Some Sunday afternoons we would go for a walk up Orton Hill and if Nan was feeling energetic we wouldn’t stop there but go all the way round it must have been at least five miles. Other times we would just stay and watch Shirley Temple Movies, But if I was really lucky Nan would get her Records out in the Front room and we would sing and dance to Bony M. When Bulls eyes came on we knew it was time for tea, Bread and home made jam and usually some jelly too. I have lots of other wonderful memories. Thank you Nan. I am going to miss you so much Love Cheryl Memories Think of my Nan a tear in my eye. Sharing knowledge, sweet by and by. Tools in the shed, Tea in the pot. Turn off the blanket its getting too hot. Teddy Bear soft squishy ice cream Sewing her clothes, sharpens the seam Sweet face, eyes--misty green, My Lovely Nan, cuddles are warm Daisy in chains sitting on the lawn Stories from books, a scrape on the knee Ice cream faces, Grandad and me, Asleep in the swing chair under the tree. Fresh jam for bread, peas from pod Nature filled apron, treasures from God, Oh Nan Dunmore Mini & nice Love on the table, void of price. Records of 70’s, music so bold Family traits--our elders of old, Frozen in time , forever she smiles Memories of you for miles and miles. xxxxxxxxxx By Cheryl
