The White Tiger

- Narrated by: Bindya Solanki
- Length: 8 hrs and 10 mins
Balram Halwai is the White Tiger - the smartest boy in his village. Too poor to finish school, he has to work in a teashop until the day a rich man hires him as a chauffeur, and takes him to live in Delhi. The city is a revelation. Balram becomes aware of immense wealth all around him, and realizes the only way he can become part of it is by murdering his master. The White Tiger presents a raw and unromanticized India, both thrilling and shocking.
Superb story, very poor narration.

Captivating storytelling with sharp humour
Loved the way Balram Halwai is narrated his story with tinge of mordant sense of humour while addressing the realities of modern India. Even after you finish the book, you still wonder about the characters.
