#Kolkata: Happy Boishakh to Bengalis. The sender is Joe Biden. No one is named after the US President, this tweet was made by him. The Bengalis scattered in different parts of the world are shocked by the greetings of the wife of the US President for the Bengali New Year.

Since this tweet, the search for the US President’s Bong connection has started once again. Almost everyone now knows about the addition of American Vice President Kamala Harris to India. But even newly elected US President Joe Biden has such roots in India, such information is coming to the fore in the US voting market. And this information was given by Biden himself.
In an interview during a visit to Mumbai in 2013, Biden said his ancestors were Mumbai residents. He later went one step further in Washington and said that his ancestors had been living in Mumbai for five years. Biden also said at a business meeting in 2013 that his ex-husband, George Biden, was a captain of the East India Company. He also got married to an Indian woman. Biden said someone also searched for him in the family. According to a recent report on Families in British India, Biden’s ancestor was Christopher Biden, not George. Christopher was in Chennai for 19 years. His son Heracio Biden also came to Calcutta. Biden also had the title of a teacher at La Martiniere School, claims Tim Wilsi, a guest professor at King’s College London.
