Seven-Year-Old From Gurugram Recognised As The World’s Youngest Author

Abhijita Gupta

Seven-year-old Abhijita Gupta, who recently released her first book ‘Happiness All Around’, has been recognized by the India Book of Records as the youngest author to write prose and poetry both, the Asia Book of Records as grandmaster in writing, and the International Book of Records as the youngest author.

Her book is a collection of short stories and poems with well-thought-out illustrations. Her stories and poems revolve around her parents and grandparents, nature, and friendship, among other subjects. The book published by Invincible Publisher, Gurugram, has 10 poems and four stories, and the illustrations have also been done by Abhijita.

Abhijita’s mother Anupriya Gupta has told the media, “To our surprise she wrote the whole story with only one or two spelling mistakes. We were shocked when we came to know about her capability.” The first story she wrote was The Elephants Advice and her first poem was A Sunny Day – both are included in the book.

Abhijita says that she loves creating art. “Since nursery, I have been adjudged as one of the outstanding performers in drawing and colouring competitions in school. I feel relaxed when I do it,” adds Gupta, who studies in Class II at Presidium School, Indirapuram. Writing has always been close to Abhijita’s heart. It is most likely that she draws these genes from her ancestors – after all, she belongs to the third generation of the renowned poet duo- Rashtrakavi Maithilisharan Gupt and Santkavi Shri Siyaramsharan Gupt. She began writing when she was only 5 years old.

Abhijita has stated that her next book will focus on her thoughts on the pandemic and its impact on children.
