When the world was reeling during the COVID lockdown, 11-year-old child author Jayant Patwari imagined a new twist to the COVID times.

Sharmu is a petty thief on the lookout for a major heist.

Aadi is a runaway robber chased by the police across the country.

Buddhiman is a scientist who invents all sorts of crazy things in his laboratory.

Futuristic gadgets that help them clone themselves, shrink in size, become powerful and float in the air are just a few that aid these young boys as they want to get rich and famous. 

Just when they think that they’ve hit luck, the coronavirus is accidentally leaked out into the world from Buddhiman’s laboratory. Buddhiman catches COVID, Aadi gets arrested and Sharmu is on his own.

Read the tumultuous journey of Sharmu to find out what happens next.

All the images are hand illustrated, giving a unique twist.
