White Tiger

Narayan wished to post the following about a character in White Tiger: (more to follow I am sure)

The White Tiger – Aravind Adiga

Note 1 ;

I was intrigued on p.29 by this : “The photo was of a plump man with spiky white hair and chubby cheeks, wearing thick earrings of gold; the face glowed with intelligence and kindness.” I figured it out by p.40; here he is, “The Great Socialist” …

Adiga must have mistaken his plump earlobes for gold earrings.
