Dubai: A Dubai-based Indian student used his stay-at-home time due to the Covid-19 pandemic to write a book on computer programming, a media report said.

The Khaleej Times report published on Saturday said that the 12-year-old Amritesh Banerjee, the class 8 student of Cambridge International School, Dubai, is not only a published writer, but is also coaching students virtually.

“It took me four months to complete this book. The paperback version was launched in September. The online version will be launched on October 15, which is the World Students’ Day,” said Amritesh.

“So I’ve held a few online classes as peer-to-peer learning can prove to be immensely helpful in understanding concepts. My father has always reiterated … that

Today, the Indian boy is not only a published writer, but is also coaching students virtually.

Most students his age spent time playing video games as UAE residents stayed home due to movement restrictions imposed to stymie the spread of Covid-19 in April. But 12-year-old Amritesh Banerjee donned the hat of an author to pen a textbook for school children.

First-time Author’s ‘Kissing The Coronavirus’ Book on Amazon is Making The Internet LOL

The novel coronavirus is the buzz word for the world right now. We are reading about it, watching it in the news and even eating ‘sandesh’ inspired by it.

While all that is still understandable, a first-time author has gone ahead and written a love story about the killer virus, taking it up several notches higher. The ‘steamy’ love story is titled ‘Kissing the Coronavirus’.

Now, we won’t know much until we have read the story in detail, but here’s what Amazon, which is selling the book, has written in its description of the book.

“Dr Alexa Ashingtonford is a part of a crack team of scientists tasked with finding the cure to the devastating Coronavirus. Little did she know she would end up falling in love with it, in this steamy viral-erotica.”

Your Must-Read Book for 2020

September 29, 2020 | seo | No Comments

This post was sponsored by Blue Array. The opinions expressed in this article are the sponsor’s own.

We are really proud at Blue Array to have recently launched the book “Mastering In-House SEO,” and even more proud to see it named as an Amazon bestseller.

This was a gap in the market that needed closing, not just in terms of knowledge, but also

The System: Who Owns the Internet, and How It Owns Us • By James Ball • Bloomsbury • 288 pages • ISBN: 978-1-52-660724-9 • £18 (hardback) / £14 (e-book)

It’s been a while since the last book explaining how the internet works. I believe it was was in 2012, when US Senator Ted Stevens’ (R-AK) characterization of the internet as “a series of tubes”, inspired Andrew Blum to write Tubes: A Journey to the Center of the Internet to explore the network’s oft-forgotten physical underpinnings — a theme also taken up in Michael Lewis’s Flash Boys, which showed how physics helped high-frequency traders exploit the financial markets. Now, here is James Ball, with The System: Who Owns the Internet, and How It Owns Us, to examine the internet and power.

Internet history can be slippery. Contrary to expectations in the 1990s — and then again in 2011, crediting
