JK Rowling is one of the most successful writers in the world and the fans of the books are also called Potter-heads. She is known for her philanthropic initiatives and charitable deeds. Recently when Kulsum Bano Bhat,12, from Dado wrote an essay, she did not imagine in her wildest dreams that she would be noticed by the author.
Her teacher Sabbah Haji Baji, who teaches Kulsum English in Haji Public School, a non-profit school, decided to tweet her essay to Rowling and wrote, “Dear @jk_rowling. Kulsum, 12, a first generation English learner from the Himalayas would like to meet you someday. So come visit us at #HajiPublicSchool .”

Sabbah then took to Twitter to express the happiness and thrill the children felt. This had a lot of twitter users feeling happy for the children.
