Aravind Adiga kind of writers are necessary. They awaken us from our sleep. They break the frozen snow of our 'sukoon'. And such writers are found in all countries, cultures and languages. U.R. Anantmurty does same in Kannada language. Not for awards from West, Dickens (England), Dostoevsky (Russia), O'Neill, Tennesse Williams (both in America), Taslima Nasrin (Bangladesh) - and innumerable film-makers have tried to clean the gutters of their socio-cultural rottenness. Thus, Adiga cannot be discarded on the ground of postcolonial process of decolonizing the mind - and thus stop to flatter the egos of Westerners.
