Nutrition and The White Tiger

Nutrition, or lack thereof, has emerged as an aspect that divides rich and poor, high and low caste, in The White Tiger, and it reminded me of an article I recently read in The Economist. Well, rather than an article, it is more like a blog by their Asian correspondent, Banyan.

The article is titled “The Indian Exception,” and can be viewed here:

The article covers several of the same areas as the book: village/city; government graft; caste/tribal division; rural/urban.
