Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, January 26, 2020
Born and brought up in Jeddah, four-year old Shivaansh launches his first book, ‘SPRINKLES,’ today.
Shivaansh was born in January of 2016 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Although shy as a child, he showed his love for words by devouring picture books and then stories with letters, often falling asleep, unable to get away from his beloved books. His parents bought him a Polaroid camera when he was two and he began photographing the world around him, and noting interesting observations. He developed a strong vocabulary and strengthened his power of articulation – all the time encouraged by his parents.
In February 2019, he started ‘The Project’ wherein he composed poems based on his Polaroid pictures. Over the year, he wrote over 128 poems and this book is a compilation of some of his poems. His wish to launch his first book on his 4th birthday, January 26, 2020, just came true!
The book was released by Consul General, Md. Noor Rahman Sheikh, at the Consulate General of India in Jeddah.
The book is available across leading online platforms as a paperback and e-book.
