Balram Halwai, der "weisse Tiger", erzählt in Form von Briefen an den chinesischen Premierminister eine Geschichte über ein Indien fern von allen Klischees. Hier geht es um das wahre indische Leben auf den Strassen - vom Microsoft-Call-Centre-Mitarbeiter bis zum Bettler, der Müll verbrennt, um sich zu wärmen. Balram selber erzählt offen und schuldbewusst seine persönliche, skrupellose Erfolgsgeschichte - wie er seinen Platz in der aufsteigenden Wirtschaftsmacht des "neuen Indiens" sichert.

Seminar paper from the year 2016 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Kassel (Anglistik/Amerikanistik Literaturwissenschaft), course: Visions of India, language: English, abstract: The guiding question of this paper is how Balram justifies his criminal acts and on which moral concept he bases his decisions. In the course of this paper, I will attempt to show that the protagonist is a gritty anti-hero who does not act in accordance to dharma and reinvents his own concept of morality. The first chapter will give a brief explanation of dharma, one of the four purushartas, a significant concept in Indian philosophy, especially in Hinduism when talking about morality. “Dharma is inextricably linked with the ethos of India and the entire personal, social, ecological, and spiritual life is guided by it for ultimate liberation” (Mathew, 2015:131). In the following chapter, the criminal acts committed by the protagonist and the circumstances and reasons leading to it will be analyzed in terms of morality, taking the concept of dharma into consideration. This chapter underlies the difficulty of how to cope with the paradox issue of the protagonist being a murderer and a victim at the same time. Subsequently, the strategies employed by the protagonist to justify his immoral acts will be discussed in detail, attempting to find out how Balram distinguishes between right and wrong. Firstly, the depiction of other humans in the novel will be examined since the narrator strategically portrays them as being immoral and corrupt in order to comparatively put himself on a higher level. Secondly, his heroic self-image will be analyzed, considering his name 'the white tiger'. The third subchapter will focus on how the protagonist employs the metaphor of the rooster coop as a justification for the murder, taking the consequences of the murder into account and discussing Balram's ultimate aims.

In 1971, civil war raged in Tony Assali's home country of Lebanon. The oldest of five children, Tony had no choice but to come to America alone, establishing a foothold so that one day the rest of his family could join him. Thrilled, yet frightened at the same time, Tony knew it was up to him to make it with so many people depending on him.Luckily for Tony, all his life he possessed a special skill: the ability to perceive "White Tigers," rare and valuable opportunities other people either do not see or are too afraid to pursue. Using his powers of persuasion and relentless work ethic, Tony landed job after job, always with an eye on earning more money, to obtain the American dream.From humble beginnings working in a doughnut factory, Tony became the most sought-after waiter at a high-end restaurant; from there, he parlayed his charm into a position selling men's suits by the thousands. At the same time, he fulfilled his promise to his family, bringing all of his loved ones over, getting them jobs, and helping to establish lives for them in America.Never content to rest on past wins, Tony dared to dream bigger, originating the idea to sell hummus, a Mediterranean staple from his homeland, in American grocery stores across the US. This White Tiger caught on in a big way, making Tony a millionaire by the time he sold his food company in 1980s. Yet, still Tony hungered for more. He came out of semi-retirement to challenge himself once again selling meat door-to-door, just because he liked the thrill of closing. He sold so many items, shattering all of the company records, that the computer couldn't keep up with him. Yet, in spite of so many triumphs, Tony still hadn't found the White Tiger he was really looking for -- the right woman to make his life complete. After four marriages, Tony at last caught his White Tiger, the love of his life. The problem was, she was already married. Never the type of person to let an objection stop him, Tony found a way to land his ultimate White Tiger while creating his final economic empire, a lucrative real estate business in Sunny Orange County.
