L for Lockdown: 7-year-old from Bengaluru pens book


Team Udayavani, Aug 1, 2021, 12:27 PM IST

Bengaluru: One of the most significant public health measures implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic has been extended periods of ‘lockdown’ where whole populations have been advised to remain in their households other than to collect necessary supplies, to care for others, or to exercise.

Many children and young people have likely experienced loneliness during the lockdown, but here a seven-year-old from Bengaluru has recently penned down her learnings, from online classes to cybercrime like phishing, in a book and has published the same.

Under the title “L is for Lockdown – Jiya’s Journal of Lockdown Lessons”, a non-fictional book has been released on an e-commerce platform and talks about Jiya’s experiences, new routines and learnings from the one year of sitting at home and attending online classes.

She was inspired by her mother, a marketing professional, who had read her dairy and planted the idea of creative writing in Jiya’s mind.

Jiya said that she could publish her work because of the help and support of her teacher Divya A S. Divya helped Jiya find a publisher.
