A Five-Year-Old Indian-American Girl Becomes the World’s Youngest TEDx Speaker

Texas, USA (CU)_ Kiara Kaur, the 5-year-old Indian-American kid, has been named the world’s youngest TEDx speaker. The World Book of Records in London identified the child prodigy when she delivered her speech at a TEDx event held by an organization in Maharashtra on Children’s Day on November 14. Kiara had previously set a global record in February. She read 36 books non-stop for 105 minutes. Kiara expressed excitement over the accomplishment. She told the media, “I am so excited to be the youngest TED speaker”.

Gaurav Ghewade arranged the COMMA event at Rankala Lake. He appreciated Kiara for her excellent skills. He stated, “Kiara won applause. She inspired the audience with her story. Even other speakers were all praises for her”. She is also poised to release her debut book, “Diary of a 5-Year-Old Genius Chatterbox Who Set World Records,” as a devoted reader who has read over two thousand books.


Kiara’s mother, Dr Little Mahendra, a Dean at a Dental College, explained, “The book chronicles her journey in her own words. It took seven months and I merely typed as she shared”. With a passion for speaking, the small child said, “I have so much to share. People call me a talking machine and gabby”. However, Kiara has not yet decided what she wants to accomplish in her life. The five-year-old explained, “Sometimes I want to become a doctor to treat people and sometimes I want to become a leader to help the needy”.

Kiara’s parents are doctors and she was born in the United States after a five-year gap and is currently residing in Abu Dhabi with her parents. Her father, Dr Ravi MJ, an Orthodontist, said, “She is hence so special for us and I love spending as much time with her as possible”. According to her mother, Kiara’s grandpa, Lt Colonel MP Singh, fostered her passion in reading. Kiara, who has a passion for languages, is also learning French and Spanish.


Howard Berg is known as the world’s fastest reader and he is assisting Kiara to develop her natural capacity to study. He stated, “I expect great things from Kiara as she grows up”. Kiara’s mother explained, denying that they were attempting to push their kid for any records. She said, “We only support her in all her endeavours, so that she would love to do what she does”.
