About the Book

After reading The Love, Purohit Mehta became a fan of its author—a child—and sent letters to Indian universities to invite the child for a book talk. The child rejected many invitations due to conflicts with Imam Jalaluddin Zelgai—who provided Taliban training to American Muslim children, some of whom he abused (like ten-year-old Muhammad Abdul). Eventually, the child changed his mind and traveled to India, but some enemies of his—Muhammad Islam and Muhammad Ullah—attempted to assassinate him. The Purohit noticed and protected the child by taking the bullet. The child held the Purohit’s falling body and said, “You are not a man. You are a Manish.” Upon arrival in New York, the child knocked on the Mecca Mosque door. Suddenly, Imam Zelgai towered over him and said, “Take your chalk and go away.” The child responded, “I’m not here for chalk. I’m here for Abdul.” The name of the child is Soborno Isaac. He calls this story Manish.

About the Author

Soborno Isaac Bari was born on April 9, 2012, at New York Presbyterian Queens Hospital. He is an Asian-American prodigy, the author of The Love, and the world’s youngest professor. He was seven years old when he became a guest professor at the Ruia College of Mumbai University. Bari’s father, Rashidul, and mother, Shaheda, were immigrants from Bangladesh. Bari also has a brother, Refath. His parents observed that he began talking in full sentences at six months old and was able to solve mathematics, physics, and chemistry problems at two years old. His parents started recording his problem-solving abilities and shared videos of him on social media, some of which caught the attention of local TV networks and colleges in New York. On November 3, 2014, when Bari was only two years old, Medgar Evers College Vice President Jerald Posman interviewed him. Bari’s problem-solving abilities also caught the attention of Voice of America (VOA). On February 13, 2015, VOA invited two-year-old Bari for an interview. VOA published this interview on their website and broadcast it twice, noting that Bari was the youngest interviewee since the founding of VOA in 1942. In April 2016, Dr. Lisa Coico, President of City College in New York, gave Bari the nickname “Einstein of our time” for his achievement in a series of tests in math and science. In 2016, at age four, Bari received recognition from President Barack Obama for his accomplishments in math and science, and in 2018, at age six, he received a letter from Harvard University President Drew Faust. In 2021, he received an invitation to speak at the Harvard Project for Asian and International Relations (HPAIR). Bari was accepted into New York City’s gifted and talented program later the same year. Bari is currently a fourth grader at Davison Avenue Intermediate School and taking eighth grade classes at Howard T. Herber Middle School. On April 24, 2018, Dr. Thomas Isekenegbe, President of Bronx C. College, interviewed Bari to learn more about his anti-terrorism campaign and upcoming book, The Love. On March 15, 2019, Bari published The Love to promote his anti-terrorism campaign of the same name. It became an international bestseller. In 2019, Bari received an invitation from Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi, SP Pune University Vice-Chancellor Nitin Karmalkar, and the Principal of Ruia Autonomous College, Dr. Anushree Lokur, to make a trip to India. On January 3, 2020, Bari received the Global Child Prodigy Award from Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi. On January 4, 2020, Bari was recognized by the principal of Ruia College, Dr. Anurshee Lokur. On January 6, Bari gave a talk on The Love at SP Pune University for university faculty, students, and alumni. In March 2020, Oscar-nominated actor Melissa McCarthy interviewed Bari at Warner Bros Studio for NBC’s Little Big Shots. His interview was broadcast on NBC during prime time on March 8, 2020. He also received recognition from the New York State Governor. He regularly delivers lectures at many Indian universities, including Sacred Heart College and Geeta Jevon College. He has inspired millions of students to fall in love with math and science through his YouTube channel, Bari Science Lab, which has more than 300,000 subscribers. In 2021, he won Da Vinci Laureate Award from The Vinci Institution, South Africa.
