Abstract

In the context of the present research, Adiga wrote on the promised of our leaders and harbingers of freedom movements. In free India, there will be in distinguish and indiscriminate progress in education, health, infrastructure, irrigation, roads, railways, agriculture, employment, and electricity. The subsequent governments of free India in various periods fail in these either endeavors or lag behinds. ‘The White Tiger’, is a piece of literature or art besides it also documents information on the diminishing function of successive state’s organs. It is the story of cages built by the major players of this fiction for themselves and others. The masses of India are in-caged mentally in feudal passé and divides along within many castes and communities. Adiga illustrates the rooster coop syndrome kaleidoscopically in this fiction, while collective consciousness forms the moral basis of the society. It is the very seed thru which grows the offshoot of herd mentality. The Rooster coop spreads its tentacles in the collective consciousness of villagers of Laxmangarh.
