Vice President Biden received a letter from someone by the last name of Biden from Mumbai, when he became a US Senator. Now, decades later, the Vice President has learned that his “great, great, great, great, great grandfather” worked in East India Company. After retirement, Biden said George Biden decided to settle in India and married an Indian woman.

“There are five Bidens in Mumbai, India,” the Vice President told a Washington audience at an event organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry and Carnegie Endowment for International Peace on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of India-US civil nuclear deal.

The Vice President has all the details, including the phone numbers of all the five Biden’s in Mumbai. Soon he is going to call them.
