Ayan was Invited to GLF 2018 for being the Youngest Author in the World. He began drawing and painting at the age of one. “He would just lock himself up in his room – sometimes till 2 or 3am, you won’t believe, and just keep painting,” Sangeeta said. His first drawing was of a woman and a child. Ayan later clarified that it was meant to be a picture of him with his grandmother. Ayan says that he never wants this painting of his to be sold, even if the others are.
