US President Inauguration: Indian traditional 'Kolam' drawn for Biden & Kamala Harris
The making of Kolam in the online ceremony of Biden and Kamala's oath taking is also a direct proof of this. It is actually a traditional rangoli of the south Indian state of Tamil Nadu.
New Delhi: For the first time in the US, a woman of Indian origin is going to join the post of Vice-President. In this regard, January 20 is a very special day. On the same day, Joe Biden will take the oath of office, while Kamala Harris will take the oath of office.
Kamala Harris to take oath as Vice President:
Let me tell you that Kamala's roots associated with Tamil Nadu, India. Her mother Shyamala Gopalan, a biologist, moved to the US in 1958 for further studies. She married there and Kamala was also born there. Because of this, it is very natural to have a glimpse of India in the swearing-in ceremony that is going to be held on 20 January.
Making of Kolam Rangoli in swearing-in:
The making of Kolam in the online ceremony of Biden and Kamala's oath taking is also a direct proof of this. It is actually a traditional rangoli of the south Indian state of Tamil Nadu. They call it Kolam there. It is also important to tell you here that it is made on a very auspicious and special occasion.
This is the reason that the work of making it in front of the capital building is going on loudly before the swearing-in ceremony. The video, which has been composed by thousands of kolam compositions to welcome Kamala and Biden, is very special.
When a video was made to show the culture of America, along with the reception of Harris and Biden, it included thousands of pictures of kolam. More than 1800 people from India along with America participated in it. Shanti Chandrasekhar of India, who participated in this, said that this rangoli infuses a new energy which is a very positive aspect of it.
In this first people of different ages took part. It was first started at the local level, but later it became bigger than expected. It earlier created outside the White House but due to security reasons it get allowance in front of the Capital Building.
In the US, January 20 fixed as the swearing in of the new President. But it can carry forward or backward under adverse circumstances.
