GANDERBAL — Sehran Bhat, a 12-year-old boy from Dangerpora Laar area in Ganderbal district, has achieved a remarkable feat by authoring his first book titled “History of Kashmir”.

The young author drew inspiration from the poems he encountered in his school books, sparking a desire to contribute to the literary world.

Grateful for the support he received, Sehran acknowledged the pivotal role played by his family, particularly his father, who suggested the title of the book. Originally titled “The Untold Story of Kashmir,” Bhat later opted for “History of Kashmir” to better encapsulate the content.

Highlighting the cognitive benefits of writing, Sehran emphasized its role in overall brain development while also acknowledging the importance of play. “It enhances overall brain development, given the constant exposure to books and the necessity to read extensively. However, I am not discouraging playing, and it is important too,” he stated.

Detailing his writing process, Sehran dedicated the first chapter of his book to the transformation of the Valley into a Union Territory and the second chapter to the history of its inception, seeking guidance from teachers along the way.

The 10-chapter book delves into Kashmir’s history, spanning Sikh rule, Muslim rule, and post-1947 events. Bhat revealed that the book was published by Nitya Publication, with whom he connected through social media, with his father facilitating the publication process.
