Shelfari edited the memorable quotes of The White Tiger Friday, October 22, 2010.
- Edited a quotation: “Electricity poles -
defunct.Watertap - broken.Children- too lean and short for their age, and with oversized heads from which vivid eyes shine, like the guilty conscience of the government of India.”Balram
- Edited a quotation: “Part of me wanted to get up and apologize to him right there and say, You go and be a driver in Delhi. You never did anything to hurt me. Forgive me,
brother.Iturned to the other side, farted, and went back to sleep.”Balram
- Edited a quotation: “Iqbal, who is one of the four best poets in the world - the others being Rumi, Mirza Ghalib, and a fourth fellow, also a Muslim, whose name I’ve forgotten - has written a poem where he says this about slaves: They remain slaves because they can’t see what is beautiful in this
world.Evenas a boy I could see what was beautiful in the world: I was destined not to stay a slave.”
