Villagers in Tamil Nadu celebrate as they wake up to Kamala Harris’s US election victory!

Joe Biden And Kamala Harris  won the 2020 election in the United States of America, making them the 46th President and Vice-President.

After the U.S’s election victory, a small village of Thulasendrapuram in Tamil Nadu, India celebrated and offered prayers of gratitude on Sunday (Nov 8).

Kamala Harris, born to an Indian mother and a Jamaican father, both of whom immigrated to the United States to study, made history by becoming first Asian American woman to hold the second highest office in the US.

Priests at the temple in Thulasendrapuram village bathed the local deity in milk and prayed.

Harris visited the village when she was five, and has often recalled walks with her maternal grandfather on the beaches of the southern city of Chennai during annual trips from the U.S.

She’s been in close touch with her family in India including her uncle Gopalan Balachandran.

“I didn’t need them to tell me anything, I knew she was going to win.”

He says he plans to attend her swearing in ceremony in January.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Harris’s win was historic late on Saturday (Nov 7). Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has congratulated the duo on their victory.
