New Delhi: Even as Kamala Harris made history to became the first-ever woman and person of colour to sit at the chair of Vice Preidency in the United States of America, both the literal and virtual worlds erupted with applause.
But along with the accolades came the memes. Indians on twitter, who can make anything funny, took to their creative best to pay ‘tribute’ to Kamala Harris.
The twitterati could not help but combine Kamala Harris’ momentous day with another development closer to home in Gujarat.
Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani on Tuesday announced that the popular dragon fruit has been renamed as “Kamalam” as the outer shape of the fruit resembles a lotus. He said that the word Kamalam in Sanskrit means ‘lotus’.
Here are some hilarious posts:
One user said, “Ah yes, Madam Vice President Dragon Fruit Harris.”
