Kiara and the Interview Sessions with Channels

In an interview with one of the Hindi news channels, she said that reading is the absolute form of enjoyment for her, and it brings her immense happiness. This little girl also said that books can be carried anywhere, anytime but the only problem is reading on phones or watching a video as it becomes inaccessible with no internet connection.

As known from the interview, Kiara enjoys reading books that have colorful pictures and big texts. Some of her most favorite books are Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, etc.
