'Super traits of Superstars could be a guidebook to a lot of youngsters out there who want to reach out for the stars and touch the sky.' John Abraham Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Vidya Balan, Karan Johar. Each of these celebrities are adored and looked up to by millions who aspire to emulate their success stories. But what is it that separates them and other Bollywood stars, from the rest? Which is that one defining trait that makes them stand out and how can you benefit from knowing it?. In this one-of-a-kind book, Priyanka Sinha Jha looks at eleven luminaries from Bollywood and the attribute that is perhaps most responsible for their success. She details their stories, their struggles, their efforts to overcome setbacks and what it is about them that made them not just reach the top of their game, but stay there. Be it Amitabh Bachchan's discipline, Aamir Khan's perfectionist nature, Salman Khan's generosity, John Abraham's enterprise or Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's grace each star has one unique quality that others can imbibe to reach greater heights in their own lives. With pithy observations and inspirational conversations, Super traits of Superstars will show you how to live life star-size. 'I knew nothing of those who had passed before me. There was one who could have known, who could have conjured their faces and voices through an act of will and invention, but the river took him before I could ask his name, before I could ask him how his mother had died, or if he remembered her at all. 'In the title story, a young, out-of-work Nepali man meets a circus clown and a giant in a park in Santa Rosa, California and in their strange predicaments finds unexpected resonances of the lives of fellow Nepali immigrants. 'Fortune' tells the story of an old man who watches his village transform into a teeming basti of migrants brought there to dam the Marshyangdi River and finds himself thrown into a struggle against oblivion. In 'The Boy from Banauti', the river joins for one afternoon the divergent fates of two young boys playing truant and inventing stories. And in 'The Messiah', a wounded man remembers a martyr and worries about their place in his nation's turbulent history. Set in the obscure village of Khaireni in central Nepal, in Kathmandu and in California, the stories in The Vanishing Act carry a compelling sense of place and are illuminated by flashes of astonishing insight. This collection marks one of the most assured literary debuts from Nepal and from the subcontinent in recent years.
