Special Victory Prayers For Kamala Harris In Ancestral Tamil Nadu Village

As the United States of America gears up for polls today, particular prayers have been held for the victory of Democratic Vice-Presidential nominee Kamala Harris at a temple in her maternal grandfather’s ancestral village in Tamil Nadu.

Ms. Harris had earlier shared the large influence her grandfather PV Gopalan – a civil servant who served in India and overseas – had on her when she was a child.

With hours to go earlier than polling begins within the USA, residents of the village – 390 km south of state capital Chennai – have been seen lining as much as worship on the native temple to see the 55-year-old grow to be the Vice-President.

Explaining the village’s join with the family, Ms. Harris’ aunt Dr. Sarala Gopalan instructed NDTV, “The Thulasendrapuram temple God is my father’s household deity. At any time when there’s a marriage within the household or a special occasion, we go to the temple.”

I’m conscious of the particular prayers, stated Dr. Gopalan, whom Ms. Harris had famously known as “Chithi” in her acceptance speech. “I attempt to go to the temple yearly and pray for everybody in our household. This year, I couldn’t go due to COVID,” she added.

The temple’s inscription additionally has Kamala Harris’ name engraved in addition to these of many different donors, acknowledging her contribution of Rs5,000 in 2014.

“We’re completely satisfied and pleased with her accomplishments. Kamala, who has her roots on this village, is within the race to grow to be the Vice President of America,” Ramanan, the temple administrator, stated.

Earlier, the villagers had additionally put up posters with Ms. Harris’ footage, wishing her success.


Villagers in Tamil Nadu’s Thulasendrapuram have put up posters wishing Kamala Harris’s success in US polls.

Born to an Indian mom and a Jamaican father, Ms. Harris positions herself as a colored American hanging a chord with each of the African-American and Indian-American voters.

She had earlier shared her love for idli, “an extremely good sambar” and “any type of tikka”.

Although Ms. Harris was within the race to be the Presidential nominee of the Democratic Occasion, two-time Vice President Joe Biden secured the nomination and selected Kamala as his working mate.

Ballot predictions within the US put the Biden-Harris team within the lead in opposition to President Trump who’s vying for a second time period. COVID, healthcare, and racial tensions are among the many main ballot points within the US this time.
