Tiny books collection set Limca Book of Record by Sathar Adhoor

Smallest collection of poems and fiction set Limca Book of Record by Sathar Adhoor.

WITH three tiny books, a business man in Kunnamkulam has made his mark in the Limca Book of World Records.

Sathar Adhoor from Kunnamkulam is the first proud writer whose name has been entered in the Limca Book of Records for the smallest collection of poems and fiction.

Sathar has been working since 2008 in order to get into the Book. "The struggle to shape my thoughts into these tiny books is purely an act of determination to come up with a different way of writing," he says.

He believes that writing is highly competitive these days. So, it requires hard work to get into a slot.

The books are 101 SMS Stories (40mm x 25mm x 4mm), 101 SMS poems (30mmx25mmx4mm) and 50:50 (16mmx13mmx4mm). Each book has 100 pages in it. 50:50, made out of an A4 paper is a collection of poems and stories weighing two-and-half grams.

He used to write poems and send them to publications for years, but they never saw the light. But he remembers that his name and work had been criticised in some publications by mainstream writers.

A dedicated writer, he also runs a real estate business. But end of the day, he finds something to scribble on in his diary, which thoughts finally were transferred to the tiny books.

"Media have helped me a lot in getting into the record book," says Sathar. He had to send all the newspaper cuttings of his news published, to the authority to certify his book's authentication. Sathar's friend Fahad Kottol offered free printing of the books. And he sells his books free of cost.

Though he is not an established full time writer, he has won many awards for his writings. Akshara Kala Puraskaram, Deshiya Malayala Vedi Award, Anganam Katha Puraskaram and Herman Gundert Award 2009 are a few of them. Minaarangal is the only published novel in his account and he is on writing of another one. He had directed a 10-second long short film named The Man.

Sathar Adhoor always keeps off from mainstream writers but make experiments in his writings and now he is in a new venture to bring another shock to his readers.
