The White Tiger

When I picked up The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga earlier this year, I had no idea what the book was about, other than it won the Man Booker Prize 2008. It turned out to be a compelling read throughout. A rickshaw puller's son goes to the big city, becomes a taxi driver,learns the ways of other drivers, and there is a dark outcome. Along the way we get an insight into the poor and the rich side of India. A must read for anyone wanting to develop an understanding of the seedier side of India.
