Two months after a little Kashmiri girl wrote an essay about her favorite author, JK Rowling, the lady surprised her with personalized gifts and Harry Potter goodies. In April, this year, a 12-year-old Kashmiri girl, Kulsum, wrote in her essay that she is highly inspired by the life of JK Rowling because even after facing many difficulties, she never gave up. The girl also penned down her desire to meet the author when she grows up and wishes her a long life.
The moment his essay reached the famous author after it was tweeted by a Twitter user Sabbah Haji Baji, JK Rowling replied to it and said, "Please, can you send me Kulsum's full name by DM? I'd love to send her something."

Now after two months, the little girl has finally received her bundle of joy. While everyone forgot about the tweet, JK Rowling honoured her words and sent amazing gifts to the Himalayas for Kulsum and her classmates. Delighted and touched by the act, the same teacher who tweeted Kulsum’s essay, took to Twitter to share the news. She wrote, “HELLO, WORLD. SO @jk_rowling SENT A HUGE GIFT BOX FOR KULSUM AND FRIENDS. HANDWRITTEN NOTE, INSCRIBED BOOK, AND THIS IS ALMOST TOO MUCH TO HANDLE. We are so thrilled and squeaky, I cannot even. Thank you so much, Ms Rowling. Thread below. #HajiPublicSchool”
The teacher also shared pictures of the children opening the presents and how they got teary-eyed. Their class teacher also wrote that in all the excitement their practice exam got canceled. “We were supposed to have our practice exam for Civics after school. No such luck. Everyone was way too excited.”
The author too replied to the kid’s reaction and expressed relief that they received it.
I’m so happy it got there! I was getting worried! Xxx— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) June 23, 2018
