Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala-based writer and miniature buff Sathar Adhoor has made it to the Limca Book of Records for bringing out the smallest book-set of stories and poems.
The 33-year-old writer`s literary pursuit and passion for creating small and beautiful literary works were patted by the Limca Book, which noted that though the books -- two in Malayalam and one in English -- were small, they could be read quite easily.
The first of the series contains 101 "SMS stories" in English and the book is 40mmx25mmx4mm size. The two other
works contain 101 poems and 50 stories titled "50:5", both in Malayalam and are 30mmx25mmx4mm and 16mmx13mmx4mm in size.
These books also contain several illustrations.
Sathar said his decision to stick to smaller format has been a conscious one and not borne out of eccentricity or eagerness to make records.
"When most intense emotions and ideas are expressed in least words their appeal will be greater on readers. As the
bard has put it brevity is the soul of wit," Sathar told reporters from his home town Thrissur.
