The Middleman is focused on the frustration of urban youth in which the novelist reveals the anguish of unemployed young men. The unemployment is a big issue today; it doesn’t only affect the urban India but the whole country. This unemployment gives birth to so many problems. The educated youth strays when it doesn’t get place in society and then it seeks easy sources to survive for the family. India has become corrupt country in which the government jobs are sold and bought on the basis of political approach and money in which poor and common people are helpless. The rich gets jobs easily because they have money enough to bribe and having good relation with politicians, these corrupt politicians ignore the merit and provide jobs to rich people. But the poor have neither money to bribe nor political approach, so they are deprived from jobs always, in spite of having merit. Hence, they are propelled in crime by this corrupt system. Despite having a proper qualification, the youth finds itself crippled to get a job. Their merits are ignored when they face interviews because the seats are already reserved for the rich persons who have bribed the politicians.
