Hotter than idlis

The White Tiger

As we all know, Aravind Adiga has won this year’s Booker for his debut novel, The White Tiger. Naturally, the book has been flying off the shelves.

Cut to Sunday, Bangalore, India, one of the most well known bookshops. I asked for The White Tiger and was informed that it’s not in stock. ‘Sold out, sir.’

And as if that wasn’t enough – he goes on to add – ‘It’s easier to get Adiga’s idlis, sir.’
(Adigas is a famous fast-food joint, whose idlis are legendary. )
Everyone is claiming Aravind Adiga as their own boy, from Mangalore to Chennai. Will Adigas follow suit and introduce, Fluffy White (Tiger) Idlis?

    A very nice book, I just bough a copy for my daughter who’s away at university. She said it was a nicely written piece of work – so, I’m looking to see if she would send in a review of the book.

    Otherwise, if you’ve read it yourself, could you consider sending us a review, or any other reviews?

    Check our site for details…

    Nice site by the way 🙂

    having lived in Bangalore I can vouch that the Adiga’s masala dosa is the most popular and tasty dish on their menu… not the idlis
