No saris. No scents. No spices. No music. No lyricism. No illusions. This i s India now. Balram Halwai is a complicated man. Servant. Philosopher. Entr epreneur. Murderer. Over the course of seven nights, by the scattered light of a preposterous chandelier, Balram tells us the terrible and transfixing story of how he came to be a success in life-having nothing but his own wi ts to help him along. Born in a village in the dark heart of India, Balram gets a break when he is hired as a driver for a wealthy man, two Pomeranian s (Puddles and Cuddles), and the rich man's (very unlucky) son. Through Bal ram's eyes, we see India as we've never seen it before: the cockroaches and the call centers, the prostitutes and the worshippers, the water buffalo a nd, trapped in so many kinds of cages that escape is (almost) impossible, t he white tiger. And with a charisma as undeniable as it is unexpected, he t eaches us that religion doesn't create morality and money doesn't solve eve ry problem-but decency can still be found in a corrupt world, and you can g et what you want out of life if you eavesdrop on the right conversations.
