When Kuber Singh, a student of Goenka Public School in Gurgoan, was extended the invitation to attend the American presidential inaugration he did not know whether he would be interested at all. Kuber eventually left for Washington, DC to be a part of one of the greatest events in recent history.

G B Singh, Kuber's father told that his son felt to be proud of one of the invitees as " the United States was going to create history with Barack Obama [Images] becoming first African-American to win the  presidential race."

"His ambition was to shake hands with the new American president and ask him how India and USA were going to coordinate and meet the challenges before the world. Now he understands that more than a million people are already there and these people are distininguished in their own right." Singh said.
