Preston May 23 (SL/BAN) Who are the ultimate experts about kids’ books other than kids themselves?
While Ahaan Ram is mostly your typical nine-year-old boy, books are sort of his thing. As he turned nine last week, he also wrote, illustrated, and published his very first book called ‘Ahaan’s First Book of Stories’.
Ahaan is in year 4 and goes to Ashbridge school in Preston. Whilst the country has been on lockdown, Ahaan has been working his imagination to inspire other children and at the same time support the NHS.
His mum Abhinandan said “Ahaan has worked really hard over the last two weeks writing 4 different stories and a poem which has now been compiled into a book”.
Ahaan got inspired after his story got shortlisted for the BBC story writing contest. He felt that he can be more imaginative, creative and at the same time purposeful.
Through this book, his aim was to raise funds for NHS during these challenging times. His parents have created a crowd funding page with Just Giving to collect donations which Ahaan wants to donate to the NHS heroes. In just over a week he has managed to raise £2,030 and received fantastic feedback for his book as well as his motive behind it.
British Asia News asked Ahaan how he felt after releasing his first official book at the age of 9, a very proud milestone and achievement in his life: “I feel overwhelmed at the response I have received from my friends and family about my book. I never thought I could write a real book. I feel proud to have achieved this and feel extremely happy to have contributed to the NHS heroes”
His mum adds “Ahaan is a lovely boy with many talents. He plays tennis, learns piano and loves playing his video games. We were very happy to know that his story was one among the shortlisted ones from 135000 entries and then he surprised us by penning these stories down for a great cause.”
Ahaan has been inspirational in his actions, something we are sure his parents are very proud of and something we all can support him with by not only reading his books and spreading his creativity but donating to his cause for raising money for the NHS heroes.
