    What a feeling it must be for Kamala Harris to update her Twitter bio! Maybe she has staff who does the updates. Maybe she insisted on doing this update herself!

    Congratulations!!!

    I'll go first. : )

    I want to have an Uncle like this one. Loved how he speaks at 0:12 in the video. : )



    While talking about Kamala, he said, “On Roe and Wade, (Harris) knows backwards. On Black Lives Matter, she’s an expert. On Pandemic (Pence) is on the weak ground. So, poor fellow, the only thing he had is his white hair. He looked like a very kind uncle .. that you would say, ‘come please sit and have some tea or coffee’.”

    Her step kids call her Momala, which I think is pretty cool.

    Isn't the uncle india based. :innocent:
    Kamala harris never identified herself as an Indian. Only as an African American till last year.

    She has made history becoming the first woman ,first black/South Asian vice president. Kudos to her:clap2:.

    Yes. I have also noticed her Twitter update :). Cool. Strong and feminine at the same time. It clearly proves her as a fighter with never give up attitude. Conrats to Biden also for selecting a woman as vice presidential candidate. One of the best day in US history.
    Its also an inspiration for all new immigrants about the possibilities available, - their children can dream big to become even US president. Also to all single moms, that they can raise great kids who can become future presidents ( Obama and Kamala Harris as examples). Its also a reminder to everyone about the endless opportunities available to women in US and elsewhere. Dream big and never give up.

    :hello:I am glad at last a desi indian too could get to the top posts in unites states. Truly democratic country.
    But I brood what gain India would have here.
    American Indians and Indian immigrants ought to feel happy. But h1b visa holders ?
    God bless the citizens, immigrants.
    I expect taxes to go up less money in the hands of company share holders, less money for investments in equity.
    There is celebration gala in her roots in india thanjavur villages where Her maternal ancestors hail from.
    Grand dad Gopalan is from Thulasenthirapuram and grandma Rajam is from Painganadu, agrarian villages located very close to each other near Mannargudiin the erstwhile Tanjore District.
    Here the video where she utters tamil word “Chithi” in her VP acceptance speech.

    Chithi Sarala Gopalan came to the swearing-in ceremony for Senator Kamala. And we saw Biden's usual behavior -- paws on both women :facepalm: :(. When chiti Sarala offered her hand to shake Bidens, he continued to hold Kamala with his right, and offered his left to Sarala.

    I am sure, if her situation permits, she'd show up again.

    True.

    I was pulling my daughter's leg: See Kamala Harris, daughter of immigrant parents of color has made history. Now the bar is higher for your kind. Just winning spelling bee's won't do. : )

    But seriously, a big moment for people like me whose children are born in the U.S. and consider themselves American.

    Yes. Cool, strong and feminine.

    Like it or not, women continue to be judged differently than men are. Even if no comments are made about her dress or pant suits, more scrutiny is on her as the history of the moment sinks into our comprehension.

    Almost beginning to find him tolerable. : )

    I was reading about Kamala Harris' family. Her sister Maya Harris, had a daughter when she was 17.5 years old. Maya Harris (now 53) studied at Berkeley and Stanford. Meena Harris (now 35) went to Stanford and Harvard. Meena Harris has two girls ....... : ) who will go to .... : )
