Bhubaneswar: School and Mass Education (S&ME) Minister Samir Dash today felicitated Child prodigy of Odisha, writer Memoy Mishra for his internationally acclaimed debut book ‘Being Bad Is Being Good’.
While inaugurating the book at Bhubaneswar, the Minister read out the message given by the child writer for all children and youths through his book.
“On what slender thread does one’s life hang?” With this feeling, the writer has written that -Rather than leading a normal life as any kid, he is forced to grow up as a fierce person, serving as an instrument of death, though he hates such a life. He tries to step out but is caught in a tangled mess of problems.
This piece of work portrays a person who kills much against his will and, eventually, tries to stop, but does he attain peace in his life in the end?
During early boarding at The Scindia School, Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh, Memoy wrote the book at the age of 12. With infalliable faith in God and to be Good, Memoy has given message to all children and youths to become ‘SOMEONE from NO ONE’.
The piece of work was so beautiful that the International Publisher Austin Macauley, London has published this book, both paper bound and e-book on June 27, 2019 from Europe, America, Canada and Australia.
Now, the book is reviewed and available in several international book stores, book fairs and hosted in more than 100 websites including Amazon marketing portals.
A resident of Birapurusottampur village in Puri, Memoy is the son of Chinmayee and Dukhishyam Mishra.
Since early childhood, Memoy is a good scholar and has strong bonding with pen and has been painting many imaginary tales, short stories, recitals, diegesis, etc. Now, he has passed 10th exam with 97.40 per cent at The Scindia School, Gwalior and is continuing there in Class XI.
He has dedicated his success of this book to all his teachers, seniors, friends, family members and his readers.
