Meet a 15-year-old best-selling author – Tannay Kumar

Asia Book of Records and India Book of Records have recognised Tannay as the Youngest Published Research Author.

Mumbai, Aug 18: In today article, let’s meet the prolific 15-year-old teenager- Tannay Kumar. Tannay is the author of the book ‘The Man On Wall Street. Tannay’s first brush with finance and investing was when he saw his father investing, and at the tender age of 12, he started checking the stock market daily. To further solidify his knowledge, he took the national stock exchange examination as well.

While advising his friend, who was running a small, profitable business on investments, he realised that people don’t learn finance until much later in their life. He identified the need to spread financial literacy early on and wrote ‘The Man On Wall Street’. This book simplifies the most complex financial concepts and makes them comprehensible and interesting to a layman.

Tannay Kumar is also the founder and president of the Youth Stock Exchange, now known as the Global Youth Summit, a student organisation aiming to increase teenage financial investment and global political literacy. He believes that the youth today should be made aware of the core principles of finance and politics early to fight future inflation and create wealth for themselves.

Tannay has also been part of multiple research projects where he has also written several research papers published in a reputed journal. He has been recognised as the Youngest Published Research Author from Asia Book of Records and India Book of Records. In his last interview, he stated that his research aims to discover and impart knowledge for future development. “It is really important to share your opinions and the knowledge that you acquire with the world,” Not only this, but he continues to fuel his multifaceted talents of drumming, diving and coding, alongside blogging, podcasting and writing about his passion for finance.

His podcast World & Markets is a podcast that gives you an update on all the major economic events that have taken place recently. He is also a young philanthropist. During the COVID – 19 lockdown, he conducted a crowdfunding program where he single-handedly raised a sum of 1 lakh rupees which he used to help daily wage workers who had been let down and who lived on a hand to mouth basis. He was able to help more than 200 families. He is also working on multiple new projects as well.

Tannay is a student of Jamnabai Narsee International School, where besides all these activities, he has excelled at academic grades. Below is a small excerpt from our interview with Tannay.

A best-selling author at 15, huh? How does that feel?

Honestly, the feeling is yet to sink in. My sole goal to write a book was to make finance easy for everybody. I didn’t know it would be a sweep-away hit.

Why do you think finance is important for people to know?

I believe at the end of the day, it boils down to finance. Success today is quantified in the amount of money you make and the impact you have on people. For both these, finance is essential. In India, people depend on “so-called experts’, and sometimes they get taken for a ride. Knowledge about finance is imperative and will help you in every walk of life

How is this book different from all the others out there?

I wrote this book mainly for teenagers to increase financial literacy and it was created for teenagers by a teenager.

Finally, why should everybody read this?

Anyone interested in finance and who wants to learn how to invest, analyse stocks should definitely read it. It is a concise book but covers everything required

Anyone interested in personal finance and the world of investment must read this book. The book covers all the fundamentals required. This book will make your toes curl, and reading this thoroughly will prepare you for your big game in investment.

Set amidst beautiful gardens with excellent leisure and business facilities, the resort is surrounded by the lush green Aravalli Range, providing scenic views around the Royal experience of luxury in Jaipur.

The construction of this architectural marvel commenced in 2002, and the resort opened its Gate to guests in October 2006. The resort provides breath-taking views right from the entrance itself.

A leading renowned architect from the U.S.A. designed this Royal Luxury resort after two years of research on the architecture of the historical palaces and forts of Rajasthan.

Shiv Vilas Resorts, a majestic destination, took its roots in Jaipur in their Chairman’s guiding light and leadership, Mr. Brij Mohan Sharma (1st April 1934 – 7th March 2014).

He always had a passion for helping people and uplifting society, which motivated him to pursue his dreams of becoming a great Businessman & Exporter.

The establishment of Sharma Group started in 1989 by setting roots of Jay Rasik Priya in 1989, Jaipur Boutique Carpet in 1993 and Valintino Textiles in 1993. It was the start of something bigger as his vision was to give Jaipur something more alongside these jewels in the form of Jaipur Mahal, Jewels & Gold Palace, Shiv Vilas Resorts, Brij Bagh, Brij Castle and Aman Vilas Resort.

His six sons, Mr. Shiv Bihari Sharma, Mr. Raj Bihari Sharma, Mr. Giraj Prasad Sharma, Mr. Prithvi Raj Sharma, Mr. Narendra Kumar Sharma and Satyanarayan Sharma, are now carrying this vision. They are the active board members and Directors of the Shiv Vilas group.

Putting the spotlight onto the marvellous Shiv Vilas, its intricate architecture and world-famous lobby, they have been accorded the “Best Lobby in the World” Award from Berlin and PATA Award. The establishment dating since 1998 completed its journey in 2006, meanwhile presenting us with the luxurious and heavenly resort. This massive 45 Acre resort consists of wonders such as its vividly know Lobby and traditional art.

JUMPIE: An interactive hobby learning platform for kids to embrace their artistic side

Prashanthi Atukuri, Founder, JUMPIE

Mumbai, Aug 18: As a matter of course, extracurricular activities play a crucial role in a child’s mental well-being. To nurture that developmental side of children, JUMPIE, an AI-driven hobby learning space for children, came into existence to make hobby learning accessible and affordable to all children with fun and flexibility that fits the best basis of the child’s schedule and cater to their fancies.

JUMPIE- when technology meets innovation, India’s one of the best platforms that enable your child to learn and excel in the activities of their interest with its best possible structure to impart the skill to the child. The modules include Dance, Piano, Drawing, Painting, Crafts, Doodling, and calligraphy. AI-Powered sessions which are live keep intact the interactivity required.  

The idea of JUMPIE came from the personal life of its founder Prashanthi Atukuri. She shares, as a child, she was very fond of different kinds of activities, but she couldn’t get access to learn all those activities, and the most challenging part was the location of the classes. She is clear that with the advancement of technology through the challenges have been reduced a bit. The course fees remain a question for middle-class India. So, keeping the fee structure and schedule in mind, Prashanthi was motivated to create a fun, flexible and accessible, and affordable product. 

“Having worked in start-ups most of my career and having closely worked with people who have built start-ups, I got the experience and the motivation that is needed to build something of my own. Besides, I have also got the right guidance and encouragement to go ahead with my decision,” said Prashanthi.

Each module has been designed by handpicked artists who have excelled in their field and mastered the art of imparting their skills to small children. They also conduct competitions and workshops on the occasion of father’s day, Independence Day, etc. 

“JUMPIE is coming up with its new modules of live AI-driven piano and dance which are video-based live like sessions to retain the interactive benefits of the live session such as on the spot feedback, evaluation and so on.”

Prashanthi sums up by saying, “We strive to solve all the problems that come in the way of any child’s passion by making them engaged in a manner embedded with fun and subsequently make it a prominent tool of learning for a child. We have a mission to give every child access to first-class extracurricular learning who is passionate about not just one hobby but more than that by 2025. We aim to give them wings so that every Jumpie Kid can fly high with a bundle of creativity.”

It’s an excellent opportunity for all the children to adapt to new hobbies online within budget with JUMPIE. You can connect with JUMPIE via either of the platforms.
