Aravind Adiga

I read the 'White Tiger' and felt it was a great book by Aravind Adiga. Now having read two of his short stories in the Sunday Times, Iam wondering if he is using his literary talents on one aspect of India to carve himslef a niche as the 'misery Indian lit' constantly using the worst scenes in the country, the scavenger, the poorest of poor, the corrupt etc. A perfect foil for those wishing India was not progressing as fast and pandering to post colonial views of the country. Come on Adiga there is more to India than just these themes!
