Important Booker Prize Awardees:(Important means all Indian winners and last 4 year's winners)

1997 India :

Arundhati roy had many questions in mind, many small questions, so she thought that root of all these questions is this world “Small”, so she went to god and asked: “Please tell me who is the god of small things”? God replied: “for that answer you will have to wait for 9 months, umm sorry 9 years” ...and god disappeared....she became disappointed and waited for 9 years.

After 9 yrs in 2006 she recalled that such an incident happened in past and indeed was a Great Inheritance loss to her, her desi neighbor Kiran Desai came to her to sympathize her and 2 years passed in sympathizing

So in 2008 came a person sitting on The white tiger – That was a robotic tiger run on AA batteries (AA- Aravind Adiga) , he asked everybody to immediately leave for UK as white tiger was going to eat everyone in India

People asked how to go to UK, AA said my tiger's friend- wolf , will drop you in a hall (Wolf Hall) where you'll meet a Mental patient who couldn't climb mount Everest (so the name Hillary Mental)

2009 onwards UK :

So in 2009, In Wolf Hall they met Hillary Mental, she informed them next year she is going to ask them a question , whose answer will be provided to them by her husband Jacob's son ( Jacob had a son on its own)

So in 2010 there was a Question - The Finkler Question whose answer was provided by Jacob's son while sitting on Howrah Bridge (so the name Howard Jacobson)

So in 2011 , after getting answer they went to Juli who worked in a Bar, and everyone there used to call her Julian Barnes. Juli said everything is going to finish in in 2012 so she had The Sense of an ending ...

So in 2012 , as per Juli's advice everything ended but mental patient Hilary (Hillary Mental) was still alive and kicking, seeing all destruction she ordered dead air- “dead air please Bring up the Bodies”, dead air said “sorry I am dead I cant do anything”
