Aravind Adiga is one of the most popular writers among the readers through his writings, he has shed light on the contemporary issues related to the caste system, crime, gender, identity crisis, class conflict and religion. The prominent problems faced by modern generation have been highlighted throughout the fictional composition of the writer. The writer has elaborated the significant references of these aspects throughout his fiction Selection Day. In the same way, Mulk Raj Anand has also rightly stated about the partiality on the basis of caste and religion in his Untouchability, ‘They think we are mere dirt because we clean their dirt’ (Iyengar, 337). The same thing is happened with the people in slum areas of the metro cities in this 21stcentury of globalized India. Because it is considered that the most of lower caste people like to live in the slum area that’s why the discriminative feeling has raised into the mind of upper class people of the metro cities. The same circumstances are happened with the family members of Mohan Kumar and Javed Ansari. The discriminative ideological assumptions have been taught by Mohan Kumar to his two children to keep difference between Hindu and Muslim community as well as between lower caste and upper caste to live peacefully.
