StudentCam 2018

Wednesday, March 7th, 2018

Kabir and his friend Architesh Prasad created a documentary for StudentCam 2018.  Theme of the StudentCam 2018 was “THE CONSTITUTION & YOU”.  They had to choose a provision of the U.S. Constitution and create a video illustrating why it’s important to them.

They chose 15th amendment and created a 7:41 minute long documentary. The title of the documentary is: “An American Right Not Used Enough

There were 2985 entries from 46 states, as well as Washington DC, Taiwan and the United Arab Emirates.  5,700 students participated in this StudentCam competition.

Their documentary is the first movie amongst the Honorable mentions and they will receive $250 cash prize.  Their entry is the only one from Mississippi that made it to Honorable mentions.  We are so proud of them!

The article in the local newspaper identifies Kabir as a Tupelo Middle school student, however he is a 6th grader and homeschooled.

Making Movie and Publishing Book

Monday, September 19th, 2016

Boys have had an interesting experience this year: making movie and publishing a book!

Kabir and Arjun along with their friends, Cox brothers (John Gannon and Jackson) made a 45-minute long movie titled: America: The Land of Hope, Opportunity, and Freedom.  They interviewed 17 immigrants living in Tupelo, Oxford or Saltillo.  We held the movie premiere in the library.


Kabir had co-authored and co-illustrated a picture book with his friends Architesh Prasad and Gargi Koul.  We published this book on Amazon: Tantrum Fantrum.  We are selling the book at cost price of $6:10 and if you do buy the book, please consider leaving an honest review on Amazon for the book.  Today, Kabir read the book to the class of Mrs. Anna Beth Williams at Lawhon elementary school.  It was a wonderful experience for him.  Just it would have been better if he could do the reading with Architesh and Gargi.  Archi and Kabir read the book together in our local Barnes & Noble.  There was a nice article about Tantrum Fantrum on Daily Journal, local newspaper.  In October, Kabir read to preschoolers at a All Saints Storytime.  Kabir got an opportunity to do reading at the hospital too.
