当拜登选择卡马拉-哈里斯作为他的竞选伙伴后,地球的另一端引发了一场追踪她的印度人血统和亲戚关系的社交媒体狂潮。在推特和脸书上,一连串的用户在发布她或她亲戚的照片:她祖父母在Besant Nagar附近的家,她的母亲Shyamala Gopalan十几岁时就从那里离开,在加州大学伯克利分校攻读博士学位;她和弟弟妹妹们穿着纱丽的照片...几乎所有人都在挖掘她的家世。作家Cauvey Madhavan在一条条推文中捕捉到了歇斯底里的感觉,“随时有人会跳出来,用得意的口吻透露自己的药剂师的父亲是哈里斯的祖母最喜欢的裁缝“。另一位推特用户Priya Ravichandran开玩笑说:"我被要求在谷歌上找到哪个亲戚住在Besant Nagar。“推特用户强调了她的印度性,比如卡马拉这个名字,在几种印度语言中,卡马拉是莲花的意思。

作为第一个印度裔参议员,也是美国总统大选上出现的第一位黑人女性,哈里斯确实引发了印度人的狂热追捧。当地媒体和电视摄制组争先恐后地追寻哈里斯的各种七大姑八大姨,甚至找到了她的一位舅舅讲述哈里斯在这个印度城市里的生活,以及她在超市的海滩上漫步,与她的祖父一起讨论民主和平等。还有一篇印度媒体报道描述了哈里斯的姑姑9年前在当地寺庙打破108个椰子(一种流行的宗教仪式),为她在加州参议员选举中获胜而祈祷。该报引述哈里斯打电话给她的姑姑说:"Chithi(姑姑),请为我祈祷,在寺庙里打碎椰子。"

When Democratic Party presidential nominee Joe Biden picked Kamala Harris to be his running mate, it sparked a frenzy on the other side of the globe to track down her connections to Chennai, the southern Indian city where her mother was born. On Twitter and Facebook, a flurry of users chronicled every minute link including her grandparents’ home in the Besant Nagar neighborhood, from where her mother Shyamala Gopalan set off as a teenager to pursue a doctoral degree at the University of California Berkeley. Undated photos surfaced of Kamala and younger sibling Maya in saris, smilingly posing with their grandparents during a visit. Many saw Harris a step away from the White House, and the de facto Democratic Party front-runner in four or eight years. Writer Cauvery Madhavan captured the hysteria in a tweet: “If you’re wondering what that loud windy up sound is - it’s all of Chennai cranking the #SixDegreesOfSeparation machine!! Any moment now my mother is going to triumphantly reveal that her pharmacist’s father was @KamalaHarris’s grandma’s preferred tailor.” Another Twitter user, Priya Ravichandran, jested, “I was asked to Google and find which relative lives in besant nagar. People are this close to renting party bus and do drive by near their house and celebrate kamala.”

Local outlets and TV crews raced to hunt down an assortment of Harris’s aunts and even a great-uncle who detailed her visits to the sprawling metropolis and her strolls on its humid beaches discussing democracy and equality with her grandfather, a retired government official. A prominent local newspaper, The Hindu BusinessLine, carried the headline: “Kamala Devi Harris and the destiny-changing coconuts from Chennai.” The story described Harris’s aunt praying for her victory in the California Senate elections nine years ago by breaking 108 coconuts, a popular religious ritual, at the local temple. The paper quoted Harris phoning her aunt to say, “Chithi (aunt), please pray for me and break coconuts at the temple.”  source
