Kids these days are only interested in watching YouTube videos and playing PUBG, right? WRONG! They are, in fact, extremely talented and the examples are all around us to see. From Chennai’s piano prodigy who played Mozart’s Turkish March blindfolded on The Ellen Show to Gujarat’s Stuti Khandwala who cracked entrances for NEET, AIIMS MBBS tests, JEE (Main) and MIT University, they continually keep us in awe of their abilities.
12-year-old Mrigendra Raj Pandey, hailing from Uttar Pradesh, is another such whiz kid. He has written a whopping 135 books under the pen name ‘Aaj Ka Abhimanyu’. His first publication of poems came out when he was six!

His body of work includes one novel, one poetry book, one on river pollution, around 51 character sketches from the epic Ramayana (of Manthra, Shabri, Kumbhkarna etc) and over 50 biographies of famous personalities (including CM Yogi Adityanath).
The Sentinel quoted him saying,
“I have written books after analyzing 51 characters of the Ramayana. Each of my books runs into 25 to 100 pages. I even received an offer from the World University of Records in London for a doctorate.”
He has 4 world records to his name. He broke the record for “youngest to author most biographies” at the age of ten. How awesome is that?
रद्दा दर रद्दा चढ़ता रहा,मेरी सीढियां चढ़ने के लिये,लेकिन संघर्ष का कर्ज बढ़ता गया.तिरंगे को लेकर भले ही मैं खूब आगे…
His mother (a school teacher) and father (working in Sugar Industry and Cane Development Department) have always encouraged his passion for writing and couldn’t be prouder of his achievements.
