Piracy zindabad

Its hardly few weeks since Aravind Adiga’s novel ‘The white tiger’ won the man booker price. Starting this week I am getting emails from vendors like indiaplaza.in, Crossword etc. about the deals/discounts they are offering for the book. While I was pondering which deal to go with, got a huge shock when I went out for lunch today. The pirated version of the book is already available on roadside shops for 145 rupees (check photo below).

In countries like India, piracy spreads faster than the original version. When are we going to realize the importance buying original copies or start innovating around piracy?
