Arya Ika, youngest member of Obama's crew
New Delhi:U.S.President Barack Obama's business team not only consists of 500 delegates but also a seven year old kid, a student from Southborough, Massachussets. Arya Ika , who is studying in second grade is accompanying Obama on his trip to India to bring some best deals for his family owned innovative health technology firm reports Pradeep Thakur of Times Of India. Born to an Indian-American couple, the Harry potter lookalike comes from Fay school which by coincidence is the same school to which U.S. President John.F.Kennedy also went to. The institution has granted special leave to the lad so that he could be a part of this historic trip, where both India and the U.S. signed several agreements, including breaking the decades old economic and technological barrier that was imposed on India after its two nuclear tests. Dressed in formals Ika was seen networking with other Indian and American delegates in between sessions and became the star attraction as everyone was curious to know what got the little fellow to the serious business sessions of Obama. "I want to meet Obama, and become the future President of the U.S." said Ika while explaining the reasons behind his India trip, where he could pick up his first lessons in public administration. Ika comes from a family which migrated from Hyderabad to Massachuessets 30 years ago and set up their innovative health care system firm, which now employs more than 350 Americans. The Ika System provides innovative health technology to insurance firms helping them bring quality care to patients at lower costs. The company's gross turnover is around $500 million.
