Kumari said descendants of Lord Ram are present all over the world.
"Yes, Descendants of Lord Ram are all over the world, including our family who descended from his son Kush," she tweeted.

Supreme Court and Ayodhya Issue:
After the three-member mediation panel failed to resolve the politically-sensitive Ayodhya issue, the Supreme Court on Tuesday began its day-to-day hearing on the case pertaining to whether Ram temple can be built in the disputed land of Uttar Pradesh's Ayodhya where Babri Masjid stood till 1992.
Spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravishankar, senior lawyer Sriram Panchu and Justice FMI Kalifullah were named as the mediators by the top court.
What happened in Ayodhya and why the case is significant?
In 1992, the disputed Babri Masjid structure was brought down by several right-wing volunteers who believe Lord Ram was born on that site.
On September 27, the apex court had refused to re-visit its 1994 verdict which had stated mosque was not important for Muslims to offer prayers, paving way for the hearing of the Ayodhya case.
