The title of maharaja reflected grandeur but his death was an anticlimax. Justify.

The title of Maharaja as Sir Jilani Jung Jung Bahadur definitely shows grandiosity. As a ten day infant, he challenged the premonition regarding his death. His endless pursuits to kill all the tigers in Pratibandapuram gained him the title of the Tiger King. However, when his death took place, all this became ironical. The person, who kept killing tigers all his life to negate the premonition of an astrologer, ultimately died because of a tiger. To top all this, the death was not caused by an actual tiger but because of an infection caused by slivers of a wooden tiger. The story as well as king's life ended on the note of anti-climax.
