Available Formats:


  • Author: Surendra, Rajiv

    Rajiv Surendra (the rapping mathlete from Mean Girls) read LIFE OF PI, discovered it was being adapted into a major motion picture, and embarked on a ten-year journey to land the role of a lifetime - but this is not a journey of goals and victories, this is a story of obsessively pursuing a dream, overcoming failure, and finding meaning in life. Poignant, funny, colourful, and absolutely unforgettable, this is an inspiring tale of taking risks and following one’s dreams, of process and determination, and looking back on one’s endeavors with new appreciation and meaning.
