No one can resist a rags-to-riches story. It is every common mans dream.
But Rajinikanths story is irresistible. He continues to be an enigma to both his fans and contemporaries.
He is simple Shivaji Rao Gaekwad who, by way of luck and hard work became a superstar, and continues to remain on top notwithstanding the vagaries of time. The book, written in cinematic style, painstakingly seeks to record every nuance of Rajinikanths life: the joys and sorrows, the pains and ecstasies, loves and betrayals.
It also does not shy away from underlining the two extremes that have remained an intrinsic part of his highly eventful career: the human and the divine. The book tells the essential truth about Rajinikanth that has thus far remained unknown to his vast fan following(less)

What is its support base-internal and external? What is it's agenda? How do the Afghans and the world at large perceive it? What is the response of Afghanistan's immediate neighbours to this phenomenon? Why is it that the Taliban has failed to gain acceptance from even the OIC, which represents the governments of Islamic nations? Why is it that NGOs and UN organizations like the UNDP and WHO may withdraw their operations from a Taliban-governed Afghanistan? What are the prospects of the Taliban's success? What would(less)

Pnin struggles to maintain his dignity through a series of comic and sad misunderstandings, all the while falling victim both to subtle academic conspiracies and to the manipulations of a deliberately unreliable narrator. Initially an almost grotesquely comic figure, Pnin gradually grows in stature by contrast with those who laugh at him.
Whether taking the wrong train to deliver a lecture in a language he has not mastered or throwing a faculty party during which he learns he is losing his job, the gently preposterous hero of this enchanting novel evokes the reader's deepest protective instinct. Serialized in "The New Yorker and published in book form in 1957, PNIN" brought Nabokov both his first National Book Award nomination and hitherto unprecedented popularity.
