Forever Young is a collector's edition that recounts the early days of Young World.

A generation has grown up with Young World which has remained a wise and witty friend. On the occasion of its 20th anniversary, Young World brought out a collectors' edition, which features the best fiction and non-fiction from its earlier issues. The idea of bringing out a collector's edition was to relive the magic and acquaint young readers with the early days of Young World.

Karun Chandhok, Formula One racer, launched the book at the function at Kamaraj Arangam, Chennai. The national award-winning child actors Kishore and Sreeraam (from the movie “Pasanga”) received the first copies. Niveditha Subramaniam who edited the book and designer Anjana Vasugi, were felicitated at the event.

In her inaugural address, Dr. Nirmala Lakshman, Joint Editor, The Hindu, said, “This is our affectionate offering to all our young readers across India and we hope you pick up a copy of the book, which goes on sale from today.”

Forever Young contains the selected works that appeared in the supplement's pages since its inception on November 24, 1990. Its captivating design and attractive presentation are sure to impress the young readers. Karun said, “There is no other newspaper in India that caters to the needs of this age group. The book is very interesting. Forever Young is a nice blend of history, geography, science, maths, fiction and other interesting information. I am surely going to get a couple of copies for my younger cousins,” he added.

The book with impressive illustrations and reader friendly design, has easy-to access sections for kids of all age groups. The “Story Bug” has short stories which include works by authors like Ruskin Bond. “Tales from Far and Near” has folktales from around the world. When you feel like taking a break, go to the “Popcorn” section which has short light bites of fiction and non-fiction. You can test your creativity with the “Fun-To-Do” section which has “Do-It-Yourself”, “Arty Party”, “Mathemagic”, “Easy-Peasy English”, and the “Find-Outer's Feast”. For the young adult, it is a nostalgic moment as the book takes them down memory lane, but for the little ones it is a treasure from the past to read and cherish.
