The Social Hierarchy of India through the Lens of Capitalism from Aravind Adiga's "The White Tiger"
This research article will focus on the socioeconomic and political conditions of present India through the lens of Capitalism from the work of Aravind Adiga’s “The White Tiger”. The main character in this book comes from a lower social level and works intelligently to become well-known in society. With the help of the figure Balram Halwai, the postcolonial period of India’s class inequalities was depicted. The current approach of introducing equality in the social structure is required to address the capitalism issue in contemporary India. The social hierarchy needs to be eliminated from society. By elaborating on Indian philosophical notions of living, Aravind Adiga also included philosophical elements in this work. He also discussed the state of Indian education, which forced many low-income students to drop out in the middle of their studies to care for their families. Children who receive an Indian education also acquire incomplete knowledge. The social hierarchy and structure of postcolonial India are discussed in this article.
