Abstract- Literature and Society are always connected with each other. Literature is echo of economic, cultural and political scene of society. Sometimes society is influenced by literature and sometimes society influences literature. Earlier Indian novels dealt with national social and domestic issues. With the globalisation there has been number of changes. Globalization has both negative and positive issues. In developing countries negative issues are more than positive as compared to developed nations. Materialism and Marxism are inter-connected with each other. Materialism believes in classless society, based on shift of means of production, distributions and exchange. Aravind Adiga’s novel, “The White Tiger” highlights the effects of globalizations on human beings, particularly the ones who want to become rich. The novel traces the development of the protagonist from accidently named Munna to Ashok Sharma, a journey of innocent, poor village boy to the most corrupt man of money and power.
