If you grew up in the ’90s, sending a personalised message to a celebrity or an author was quite a big deal. Back then, all one could do was wish to see them once in their lifetime. However, times have changed now. With the advent of technology, millions of fans jot down their thoughts to their favourite musicians, writers and actors on social media.
Recently, JK Rowling caught sight of one such endearing letter penned down by a 12-year-old girl, all the way from Jammu and Kashmir. The creator of Harry Potter was tagged in a tweet that came straight from the hills and Rowling’s reply to her is now winning hearts on social media.
Kulsum, a student from Haji Public School, Jammu & Kashmir, wrote the heartwarming letter to the renowned author after getting inspired by her life and achievements. “Dear @jk_rowling. Kulsum, 12, a first generation English learner from the Himalayas would like to meet you someday. So come visit us at Haji Public School”, her teacher Sabbah Haji Baji tweeted on her behalf.
And then JK Rowling gave her a pleasant surprise by not only replying to the tweet but also asking for the full name of the girl so she could send something for her. “Please, can you send me Kulsum’s full name by DM? I’d love to send her something,”
Her adorable gesture took many by surprise and Twitterati hailed her as the best author of all times, yet again! ( The Indian Express )
