Achiever's Success Story

THROUGH WRITING, A TEEN AUTHOR CREATES A POSITIVE IMPACT

Mr. Aaditya Sengupta Dhar aspires to use his writing to make a positive difference. His 2020 eBook, Underdogs, inspired readers to help underprivileged children unleash their potential, with sales proceeds donated to Save The Children India. His short story, Tug of War (2021), about teens finding common ground among communal tensions, won first prize in the Melton Global Storytelling Contest. His 2021 book, Back from the Brink, based on research funded by a micro-grant he won from MIT Solv[ED], highlighted the issue of urban animal extinction and how we can make a difference. The Teen’s Guide to Saving the World (2023), inspired teens to create a positive impact, winning Silver at the Non-Fiction Book Awards in the US and becoming a bestseller on Amazon India.

His first ‘book’ was a handwritten encyclopedia of ancient civilizations written when he was eight, and seeing it displayed in the school library motivated him to keep writing. He wrote his first fantasy novel Secret Tails (2018) when he was ten. His next novel, Legend of the Broken Blade (2022), was acclaimed as one of the ‘Top 15 must-read books of 2023’ (The Morning Standard).

His latest novel Kaalchakra (2024), an Amazon bestseller, reconnects Indian youth with their cultural roots and heritage. A short story on this theme won a Gold Finalist Award at the prestigious Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition in 2023.

He is also the creator of the Vedanomics column on BW Businessworld, where he writes articles highlighting inspiration we can take from our past in the world of economics and business. When not writing, he focuses on excelling at school, follows cricket with a passion, and practices Karate, in which he holds a black belt. He is sixteen years old and lives in Mumbai.
