At an age when kids learn 2 words, this kid becomes the youngest author in India
At an age when children learn to develop language skills by combining two or three words to make simple sentences, four-year-old Ayan Gogoi Gohain hailing from Assam’s North Lakhimpur district created history as he unlocked the rare feat of becoming the ‘Youngest Author of India’. Ayan proved that age is just a number by composing stories all by himself.
He took everyone by surprise when he wrote a book ‘Honeycomb’ that was published in January this year. He is a proud student of St Mary’s School in North Lakhimpur. The India Book of Records has honoured the title on Ayan Gogoi Gohain for his book. He was presented a metal plate along with a certificate for his stellar achievement.
The cost of the book is Rs.250 that comprises 30 amusing stories along with meaningful pictures to make it look appealing. Ayan Gohain currently lives with his grandparents as his parents are in Mizoram. He has developed the art of articulating the sentences by following his imagination. He said he writes about everyday things that attract him a lot.
The four-year-old kid takes inspiration from his grandfather Purno Kanta Gogoi who is a retired bank officer. The toddler labels his grandfather as his ‘best friend and ‘rock star’.
Meet Sanush- who started bowling when he was six-months-old
Most one-year-old babies take the first step when they are at least 1 year old. It takes 2-3 years for a child to start developing a sense of being a male or female. But this super smart kid in Chennai announced his arrival as a cricketer when he has was just half a year old. Sanush Suryadev is one of a kind.
The wonder boy started bowling when he was just 6 months old. He had gone from strength to strength. When he became two years and six months old, he deftly played cricket shots like a hot knife through butter. Even the demigod Sachin Tendulkar who was at the helm of the game for more than two decades did not understand cricket at the age of one.
Usually, cricketers earn fame and reputation for their consistent performances and for the way they approach the game. But Sanush earned the nickname for his tenacious talent. To give a glimpse at his potential, you can search ‘Sanush Suryadev’ or ‘Junior MSD’ on YouTube.
Sanush Suryadev got featured in the Indian Book of Records as “the Youngest Child Cricketer”. His proud parents couldn’t have asked for anything better from their child who drew attention to the cricketing world. Analysing son’s talent, the parents bought him a bat and a ball which he made use of the equipment to good effect.
Sanush who took a liking to cricket wakes up 5 am in the morning and starts practising. Murugan Raj who is a cricketer himself takes his son to the local areas as well as to the Chepauk Stadium. According to Murugan Raj, Sanush has all ingredients to become one of the best bowlers.
According to Sanush’s grandmother, Sanush has good concentration levels and she labelled Sanush as the ‘Future Sachin Tendulkar’. Sanush hogged the limelight when his parents uploaded a video of him ‘playing cricket’ via Facebook. The video received immediate attention and took everyone by surprise.
When the former Indian skipper, MS Dhoni happened to watch the video by chance was highly impressed by this kid. Sanush and his proud parents got a golden chance to meet up with MS Dhoni and take photographs and autographs with him. Interestingly, MS Dhoni and Sanush share the birthday on the same day.
5-year-old girl becomes India’s youngest Black Belt achiever in Taekwondo
The phrase ‘some are born intelligent and others are born dumb’ is not right. People are born with differing potentials. Meet the 5-year-old girl, Divyansha Mirchandani. She is one of a kind. At an age where kids were deeply well connected with toys and got involved in many interesting games like the hide-and-seek, Musical chairs, Ring a Ring o’ Roses, singing rhymes etc, Divyansha was training herself four hours a day.
It’s because of her sheer hard work, grit and determination that steered her to become India’s youngest black-belt awardee in Taekwondo. Hailing from Jaipur, Divyansha started practising when she was just 3 years old. She went about her business and has clinched many state, national and international medals. Her interest in the sport surged her to achieve the black belt at this early age. Much to her aura, she got her name entitled in India Book of Records.
Her aunt Nikita Mirchandani revealed that Divyansha always had a soft spot in action movies. “She is different from girls of her age. She doesn’t grow her hair and hates wearing girly dresses. She is a tomboy. But we are really proud of her achievements. Her dedication has made her achieve all this,” said Nikita.
Many thought that she wouldn’t succeed in academics because she was always focussed in sports. But she thrived in academics as well. She proved that she is worth the weight in gold as she was winning medals in sporting events. She always came through with flying colours, something that she always dreamt of. She stamped her authority in school by coming first. She recently clinched a gold medal in the English Olympiad organised by the British Council. She has well been decorating her resume.
In the Olympiad, around 42,800 schools took part from 1400 cities around the world. According to the rules, the contestants have to answer difficult questions of any level. Quite interestingly, out of thousands of students elder than herself, Divyansha came first.
Balancing the time between academics and sports is not that easy, but she made it look so. When briefly asked about her future plans, Divyansha said that she wants to study law and become a judge. “I have always been interested in becoming a judge and to serve my country. But I am still not sure about the choice to be made between sports and education,” said the child prodigy.
