Rajinikanth, the man who can auto draw himself

Rajinikanth, in a rare unfinished auto drawing.
I shouldn't have signed it because I only provided the background.
It's the drawing of Rajnikanth which did the drawing
Rajinikanth is an Indian film actor and a superstar of Tamil cinema. He comes from a modest background and did various jobs, including working as a bus conductor in Bangalore, before making his way into Tamil cinema. Over the years, he has become hugely popular, not least because of his larger than life super hero characters.
There's a flurry of jokes about Rajinikanth describing his prowesses.
For example:
- Rajinikanth doesn’t wear a watch. He decides what time it is.
- Rajinikanth did in fact, build Rome in a day.
- Rajinikanth can divide by zero
- Rajinikanth knows which came first, the egg or the chicken.
- etc.

Rajinikanth has also a fascinating ability which is rarely mentioned: the fact that he can auto draw himself on a sheet of paper - out of the blue !
So if you are lucky, you could witness your blank sheet of paper suddenly being filled by strokes (he usually uses China ink): it's a drawing of Rajinikanth drawing himself !
Obscurantists will of course ask: but who started to draw the hand in the drawing which is drawing the drawing ?
It's a typical chicken and egg biryani problem. As stated above, Rajinikanth knows which came first. And this is not a joke.


  1. He he, I should thank Rajinikanth himself because not only he auto drew the drawing but also wrote the text and posted it and on my fb profile (damn he can do that as well ??!!!@)

  2. loved that comment of obscurantists!... trust them to find a question to stump us all except rajnikanth

  3. These damn obscurantists, it's because of them that we are still in the 21st century !
