The results of the US Elections 2020 were declared a few days ago. Joe Biden defeated Donald Trump and it made him the 46th president of the United States of America, while US Vice President-elect Kamala Harris created history as she became the first woman as well as the first woman of colour to hold the second-highest office in the US. After being elected, Kamala Harris paid a tribute to her Indian mother during her victory speech.
In her speech, she said that she was most grateful to her mother, Shyamala Gopalan Harris. “I'm grateful to the woman most responsible for my presence here today, my mother, Shyamala Gopalan Harris. When she came here from India at the age of 19, she maybe didn't imagine this moment. But she believed so deeply in America where moment like this is possible,” said Kamala while addressing the USA as Vice President-Elect.
"I am thinking about her and generations of women, black women, Asian, White, Latina, Native American women who throughout our nation's history have paved the way for this moment tonight," she said.
Kamala Harris is the daughter of immigrant parents – an Indian-born mother and Jamaican- born father. Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated Kamala Harris and tweeted, “Heartiest congratulations @KamalaHarris! Your success is pathbreaking, and a matter of immense pride not just for your chittis, but also for all Indian-Americans. I am confident that the vibrant India-US ties will get even stronger with your support and leadership.” ALSO READ: Selena Gomez Rejoices And Sings Along To Miley Cyrus’ Song ‘Party In The USA’ After Joe Biden- Kamala Harris' Victory: ‘I Was Moved To Tears’
