An Indian journalist and author from Washington attempts to uncover some of her unseen facts in a new book that chronicles the phenomenal rise of Kamala Harris to become the first female Vice President and in the process, breaking many taboos. has done. For example, Harris’s full name is Kamala Devi Harris and how did ‘Devi’ come in the middle of her name because when she was born she had the surname “Iyer” attached to her birth certificate.

Author Chidanand Rajghatta has revealed such interesting things in his book “Kamala Harris: Phenomenal Woman”. This book will come to the public at the end of this month. The authors write that when Kamala was young, Harris’s parents and close friends at the University of California were Lord Meghnad Desai, Amartya Sen and Ajit Singh, economists and contemporaries of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

Harris (57) was born on 20 October 1964 in Oakland, California. His mother Shyamala Gopalan was from a traditional Tamil Brahmin family. She immigrated from India to the US in 1958 at the age of 19 to study nutrition and endocrinology at the University of California. It was here that he met Harris’ father, Donald Harris, an African-American from British Jamaica.

In a book published by HarperCollins India, Rajghatta writes that when Harris was young, Donald studied under a fellowship at the Delhi School of Economics. The book begins with an introduction to Harris’ mother. The author’s father came to America at about the same time when Shyamala Gopalan came here. Rajghatta’s father studied agriculture and dairy science in the state of Kansas. The author said that the story was so interesting that it became a long story telling Harris’s growing up, his life and career.

Rajghatta said, “It’s a biography of sorts, but in a broader sense it explores the history of the Indo-American community (including me as one of the mixed race children) and India’s relationship with black Americans, including George Washington Carver, Booker Washington, and exchanges between black activists such as Webb Dubois and Mahatma Gandhi. Mahatma Gandhi’s associates Madeleine Slade (Mirabai) and Charlie Andrews delivered lectures at Howard, which influenced generations of civil rights activists prior to Martin Luther King Jr.’

The more than 300-page book also explores the suffrage movement and the barriers faced by women’s political representation and dominance. Rajghatta wrote in the book, ‘Cooking for Kamala is both therapy and art.’ He writes, ‘No matter how we interpret Kamala’s association with the culinary arts.

Some of these, like idli and dosa and bhindi are cooked in two ways which have been memories of Kamala’s childhood.
