Outline of The White Tiger: Night 1, 2 and The Fourth Morning

Night 1: The Basics

Night One deals with Balram’s personality and introduces the narrative of the story with a police poster of Balram. It introduces Balram’s build it up then tear it down attitude, which is also the style of many of his memories.

  • The Divine Arses
  • Half-Baked Clay
  • The Poster

The Second Night: The Wonderful World of Servitude

This, out of all the letters, is my favorite. It’s lighthearted and Balram in these memories seems relatively happy. It ends on a unhappy note however.
