Abstract

This research paper explores the nuanced portrayal of India as a nation in Aravind Adiga's seminal work, "The White Tiger." Through a meticulous examination of the novel's narrative structure, character development, and socio-political context, the study aims to unravel the ways in which Adiga employs storytelling as a powerful tool to critique and deconstruct the prevailing notions of nationhood in contemporary India. The paper delves into the protagonist Balram Halwai's journey from a rural servant to a successful entrepreneur, investigating how his narrative functions as a subversive commentary on the complex and often oppressive socio-economic landscape of the nation. Analyzing the use of first-person narration, the study dissects Balram's voice as a subaltern perspective, challenging dominant discourses and offering an alternative narrative that exposes the fractures within the national fabric.
