A remote village in the Karimnagar district, some 200 km from the state capital Hyderabad, waits to hear Joe Biden deliver his speech after taking over as President of the United States of America.

Narayana and his wife Vijaya visited the village in February 2020, just before the pandemic containment.

Vinay Reddy’s grandfather, Thirupathi Reddy, served as the village sarpanch for several years. Cholleti Sai Krishna Reddy, a relative of Vinay, who takes care of the family land, said: “It is a matter of pride not only for our family but for the whole village that our son has reached such an important position in the States. -United.”
