The poem "Pratibha ki Pratibha" gained him the title of the world's youngest published poet by the Golden Book of World Records. "Not a single literary academy in the nation has acknowledged me as a poet and awarded me membership in its platforms," Jain remarked today. "I am only five years old but I want to be an author."
His parents, who live in a small village in India's Maharashtra state, decided to publish his poems to encourage children to write.
Jain's father, Jayant Jain, earns their living making musical instruments. His mother, Kusum Jain, is a homemaker. They have two other sons - one older than Pratibha and the other younger.
When Pratibha was just four years old, her family moved to Mumbai where she continued to write poetry. She has no formal education and does not know how to read or write Hindi, the language they speak at home. But she visits schools to teach children about the environment and ethics. Her favorite subjects are English and history.
In 2007, when she was only five years old, Jain released his first collection of poems called "Pratibha Ki Pratibha: A Collection of Love Poems". The book was written in Marathi, a regional language used in Maharashtra state.
Kipling, Rudyard Rudyard Kipling (UK, b. 30 December 1865, d. 18 January 1936) was the Nobel Prize in Literature's youngest laureate, receiving the award in 1907. Rudyard Kipling was the first English-language novelist to receive the award. He was also one of only three writers to have their work awarded both the Nobel and Pulitzer prizes. The other two are Eugene O'Neill and Henrik Ibsen.
Kipling was born into an aristocratic family and was educated at Stonyhurst College and then at Trinity College, Cambridge. After graduating in 1888, he spent some time working as a civil servant in India before returning to England where he worked as a journalist for several newspapers including The Times. In 1896, he started writing novels which became popular throughout Europe and the United States. His works include The Jungle Book (1894), which has been called "the bible of children's books", and many others such as Captains Courageous (1903), Joseph Conrad: An American Writer (1925), and One Way Ticket (1933).
He received the Nobel Prize in Literature for his work that has been called "imaginative literature with strong narrative power". Specifically, the Nobel Committee cited Kipling's "powerful images and rhythms" in his writings.
Kipling was married four times and had two sons and two daughters.
7-Year The International Book of Records has named Abhijita Gupta, a 7-year-old girl from Ghaziabad, the world's youngest writer. The record attempt was made possible by her father Pranav Gupta who is also her teacher.
Abhijita first started writing when she was 5 years old. Her father says that he found poems written by her on scraps of paper. He decided to publish them online and they soon became popular. After this success, he decided to teach her how to write properly so that she could one day become an author too. She continues to write poems and novels even at such a young age.
Some people may say that this proves that children can't write good books but Abhijita's father disagrees. He says that it takes time to develop your writing skills and that many authors don't start writing until they are grown up.
In addition to being a writer, Abhijita also loves dancing. When she was just 3 years old she began taking classes in jazz, tap and ballet. She also acts in some movies that have been written for her.
The world's oldest writer by far is Benjamin Franklin who was born in 1706. He lived for another 70 years or more after that.

Both books have been very well received by critics and readers alike.
Gupta was born on January 4th, 2004 in New Delhi, India. She lives with her parents who are both teachers. Her father writes science fiction stories and her mother writes children's novels.

The records company says that at the age of 11, she is also among the youngest writers in history. She has published two books so far: "My Life So Far" and "My Journey So Far".
Her father, Rajiv Gupta, a retired government official, said he was overjoyed by the recognition for his daughter. "I am very proud of my daughter," he said. "She has set a great example for other children her age by writing her own book."
Abhijita was born on March 21, 1994, in New Delhi, India. Her parents moved to Ghaziabad, a suburb of New Delhi, when she was still an infant so that her father could take charge of his office position. She wrote her first book at the age of five and a half and stopped going to school to focus on her career.
Ghaziabad is one of the most polluted cities in India. It is surrounded by large factories who use illegal coal burning as their main source of energy which results in heavy air pollution throughout the year.
