Quotes from " The White Tiger" by Aravind Adiga.

"I don't understand why other people don't buy chandliers all the time, and put them everywhere. Free people don't know the value of freedom, that's the problem."

"es, that's right: we all live in the Worlds greatest democracy. what a fucking joke."

"Because the desire to be a servant had been bred into me: hammered into my skull, nail after nail, and poured into my blood, the way sewage and industrial poison are poured into Mother Ganga."

"The darkness will not be silent. There is no water in our taps, and what do you people in Delhi give us? you give us cell phones. Can a man drink a phone when he is thirsty?"

"One day a cunning Brahmin, trying to trick the Buddha, asked him, "Master, do you consider yourself a man or a god?" The Buddha smiled and said, "Neither. I am just one who has woken up while the rest of you are still sleeping."

"the dreams of the rich, and the dreams of the poor- they never overlap, do they?See, the poor dream all their lives of getting enough to eat and looking like the rich. And what do the rich dream of? Losing weight and looking like the poor."

"When the work is done I kick them out of the office: no chitchat, no cups of coffee. A White Tiger keeps no friends. It's too dangerous."

"Go to Old Delhi,and look at the way they keep chickens there in the market.Hundred of pale hens and brightly colored roosters, stuffed tightly into wire-mesh cages. They see the organs of their brothers lying around them.They know they are next, yet they cannot rebel. They do not try to get out of the coop. The very same thing is done with humans in this country."

"The book of your revolution sits in the pit of your belly, young Indian. Crap it out and read. Instead of which , they're all sitting in front of color TVs and watching cricket and shampoo advertisements."

To make the things easier for you, it supports JPEG
format and is compatible with Mac and MS Window.
A tripod or sturdy table is a must when holding any superzoom camera steady.

The D7000 just may be the best performing APS-C format camera in
the market today.
