Do You Know Email Was Invented By A 14-Year-Old Indian Boy 32 Years Ago?

Do you know who invented Electronic Mail? Well, E-Mail was created by an Indian. It was created by a 14-year-old boy named VA Shiva Ayyadurai. Because of him, we can communicate with one another within seconds.

VA Shiva Ayyadurai was born in a Tamil Family in Bombay. However, when he was 7 years old, he left with his family to live in the US. At 14, VA Shiva Ayyadurai made one of the most remarkable discoveries in the world history of technology.

Well, the most surprising thing is at 1978, he invented Email. He was just 14 years old ,then, and technology was not a necessity then. VA Shiva Ayyadurai managed to develop a full-scale emulation of the interoffice mail system, which he named “E-mail.”

After looking at the needs, he created a computer program of over 50,000 lines and named it E-mail. In 1982, US Government recognized VA Shiva Ayyadurai as the inventor of E-mail and awarded him the US copyright for Email.
