Idea of selling Indian ideas in postcolonial Indian English fiction focusing Arvind Adiga’s white Tiger
We have a rich tradition of literature. But the dominance of the English language took away the richness along with the impact of some postcolonial writers in Indian English. Many of the students of literature are in a prejudice that when an Indian writes a novel, she or he is expected to write about India. In fact most of these writers are here to sell India through literature. It is good that majority of Indians do not know what is happening in the influential, English dominated literary scene. We do not know that we have become a commodity, a hot selling product in the literary market. It may be hard to believe that a particular idea of India on sells. Thus through this paper I would look into the so called booker prize winners of India who are so prominent in this respect especially Arvind Adiga.
