Friends call him Einstein. The adjective, 'studious' doesn't describe or define him completely. He is exceptionally good at studies, and doesn't know anything outside the world of books, nor does he have any interest in acquiring knowledge about the real world. He makes no bones about being a nerd, and a recluse. He never goes out with friends. Never shows up in restaurants or pubs, cinema halls or shopping malls. He has closed his eyes and his ears to the world, lest anything spoils his focus, motivation or determination. Career and studies means the world to him. Anything beyond the realm of education is unimportant and inconsequential to him. He is the protagonist of Dork, The adventures of Robin Einstein Varghese_a debut novel of author Sidin Vadukut. Robin grows up in a hard-core educational environment. Books are always his friends, his sole friends. He was known as a good student in school, and successfully lives up to that reputation in college as well. Robin goes to a B-school, an institute of business management studies. This novel is based on his final years in college and first year as a neophyte corporate professional.

The protagonist, Robin thinks, like nerds generally do, that his academic excellence will help him bag a lucrative job with a highly acclaimed multinational corporation very easily. What people like him fail or sometimes, refuse to understand is there is a huge gulf between the world of books and the world they live in. Education is indubitably important, but one can't deny the significance of gaining hands-on knowledge either. Robin is also dragged down from his world of fantasy and made to face the harsh reality of life, something that he was not ready for. To his, and everyone else's surprise and shock, he ends up getting a job with a company based in Mumbai that is not very big, nor well known.
Robin tries his best to adapt to his new environment_his new office, new colleagues, friends and acquaintances. Slowly but steadily he starts to accept everything_his success as well as failure, his fulfilled and unfulfilled dreams. But then, right then, his destiny puts him into another mess. A series of goof-ups, bloopers, blunders and mistakes spoils his profile as an employee. His actions prove him as an inefficient individual. From this point the story takes a sharp and interesting tern. Will Robin be able to conquer this crisis and retrieve his reputation? To know the answer you have to read this book.
