Adiga's Booker accomplishments

Arvind Adiga winning the Booker is impressive because of two reasons. One, this is his first work of fiction and two, he was the youngest of the finalists plus he is the second youngest after Ben Okri to win the Booker.

What's also interesting to note is that unlike other Booker wins that don't necessarily turn out to be commercial successes, this one is predicted to rake in a fair bit of moolah.

Congratulations! I guess this would a go long way in inspiring young writers in India to go pen that tale.

Am I listening?
