Bookaholicanonymous is thrilled to bits today to introduce you to an 8-year-old budding poet - Advaya Deo Sinha. When we first read the poem we couldn’t believe an 8-year-old could express himself so beautifully, and that to in two languages! He wrote this poem and the one in Hindi (the pics are included) for his school project. The topics given were, for English – “Yes, it’s possible” and in Hindi – “Haan Mumkin Hai”
The budding poet says: This poem is inspired from some of the books I have read and loved dearly. The characters I came across in these books stand for the theme “Yes, it’s possible”.
Yes, it’s Possible
Harry Potter said
“I am up to no good!”
But the magic he created
Made him the coolest dude!
Excuses and lies of Tom Gates
Were impossible to handle
But his doodling and music
Made him so lovable
Matilda was very scared of
Miss Trunchbull’s terror
But when she believed in herself
Which changed her forever
Ruskin Bond’s Rusty was lonely
But his life never got boring
His love and friendship show
We should never stop exploring
Malala braved bullet
All for a noble cause
Her courage got her the Peace Prize
Which made us salute and pause.
Gandhiji got us freedom
He is called Father of the Nation,
With strength of his non-violence
He is hero of every generation
Yes, it’s possible to turn bads to good
Yes it’s possible to make good better
Yes it’s possible to make better the best.
Yes it’s possible to make impossible also possible!

About the budding poet: Advaya Deo Sinha is a curious and restless 8-year-old-boy! Books and wildlife are his first love. Tigers and their wild universe excite Advaya so much that his clothes to birthday cakes reflect his love for tigers. Wildlife documentaries and animal encyclopaedias fill his book shelves. Harry Potter and Tom Gates are his favourite series though these days he is also discovering mythological and historical characters through Amar Chitra Katha comics! He wants to stop wars when he grows up and he thinks following ‘Tell me whys’ of science and Gandhiji’s principles are the right ways to achieve this goal!
