Kalam is the cleverest little boy in his school, perhaps even his town, Rameswaram. He is annoyingly curious, full of crazy ideas and up to mad inventions. Everyone around him and all his classmates think he is bonkers, weird and best avoided – all except for his dad, two best friends and Professor Ramachandran, the science teacher in whose little laboratory he tests out all his inventions. But when the school’s most horrid teacher, Punnakai, spreads lies about the professor’s experiments and plots to throw Kalam out for his latest creation, the two have to find a way to fight back.
Stuti Agarwal grew up in the hills of Darjeeling, lives in Delhi and hopes to live the Ruskin Bond life. Or ideally the Roald Dahl life - the English countryside is appealing, but that will be difficult.Stuti - after” finishing all the studying” - became a journalist and has been with the Outlook Magazine for the last four years and is now with Discover India magazine. She dreams of quitting her job ‘that pays the bills’ and settle in Darjeeling, somewhat like Ruskin Bond. In fact, an ardent Roald Dahl fan, her dream is to live in a small hut in the English countryside in the middle of a hamlet, actual or virtual as the case may be. She, of course, has to have her momos, thukpas, and wai wai noodles by her side.
