Do You Know 32 Years Ago, Email Was Invented by a 14 Year Old Indian Boy?

Do you know who invented Electronic Mail? Well, E-Mail was actually invented by an Indian. It was invented 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 just 7 years old he left with his family to live in the US. At the age of 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 that time and technology are not the necessity that time. VA Shiva Ayyadurai managed to develop a full-scale emulation of the interoffice mail system which he named "E-mail"

According to a facebook post from Beyond Concepts Designing LLP 
 The E-mail replicated all the functions of the interoffice mail system: Inbox, Outbox, Folders, Memo, Attachments, Address Book, etc. These features are now familiar parts of every email system.
Well, when VA Shiva Ayyadurai was studying at Livingston High school in New Jersey, he started to work on the email system for University of Medicine and Dentistry. He there noticed that each and every secretary have an inbox, outbox, drafts, carbon copy, folders, paper etc. which they used every single day to create and process incoming and outgoing mail.
After looking at the needs. He created a computer program of over 50,000 lines of code 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.

Despite bring the most noteworthy inventions in the world history of technology, his name is nowhere in modern history and computer science. Hope he gets the name in history he deserves. So, what do you think about this? Share your views in the comment box below.
