    Abhijita Gupta wrote her first book “Happiness All Around” which got published at the age of 7 and was a huge success. This was followed by her second book “We Will Surely Sustain” touching upon the sensitive issue of the pandemic. Acknowledged as the youngest author to write a nonfiction book on the pandemic by World Book of Records UK, Abhijita started writing short stories at the tender age of 5. She also secured the title “Grandmaster of writing” by the Asia Book of Records for her  poetry and writing skills at such a young age.

    Speaking at the event, the author – Abhijita Gupta talked about her immense love for the Ruskin Bond stories and how it helped in her writing process. She eagerly aspires to continue the legacy of her great grandfathers Rashtrakavi- Shri Maithalisharan Gupt and Santkavi Shri Siyaramsharan Gupt.

    At the launch Dr. Charu Wali Khanna greatly appreciated the budding writer and her parents for rendering a conducive environment to nurture and help Abhijita recognise and bring about her strengths to the forefront in her own growth direction.

     On the occasion, Abhijita said, “Having a huge inclination for reading, writing and evocative thinking motivated me to start writing at the tender age of 5.”

    Book Review

    ‘To begin with ….the little things..’ is all about the little things the author has learnt in the last few years. The book is a small effort to bring forth her learning in the form of stories and poems. The stories are inspired by everyone around Abhijita and how little things like being honest, being humble, being a good friend and standing together for what is right has made her book special. The book is a ray of hope especially for those young readers who have been confined to their homes and digital screen.
