Kaur’s parents are doctors and are settled in Dubai and said that the child was not compelled to set records and it was her wish that made her set the record for youngest speaker of world expo. Her mother, Dr. Little Mahendra, said, “We feel happy and great about our child’s achievement. All credit goes to my parents, her inspiration.” The little girl, whose family is settled in Dubai says,” I wanted to become a president of a country so that I can govern at the same time, can help the poor with my hand.”
