Aravind Adiga wins Man Booker Prize

India’s first time novelist Aravind Adiga on Wednesday won the 50,000 pounds ($87,000) Man Booker Prize 2008 for his novel, The White Tiger.

Only two other debut novelists have achieved this in the past: D B C Pierre in 2003 for his novel Vernon God Little and India’s Arundhati Roy in 1997 for The God of Small Things.

Adiga is the fourth Indian born-author to win the prize, joining compatriots Salman Rushdie(1981), Arundhati Roy(1997) and Kiran Desai (2006).
