New York, Nov 12: The US Presidential Elections 2016 got over and the country elected Donald Trump as its 45th President.

However, "proud" Indians are still talking about it.

Ballot Receipt

Reason: the ballot receipt issued by Chicago features Hindi (the official language of India) on it.

"The 'Thank You' receipts received by people in the city after they voted were in four languages -- English, Spanish, Chinese and our very own Hindi," The India Express reported.

The Hindi language was added on the ballot receipt first in 2012.

"Including Hindi on voting materials stemmed from recent US Census Bureau numbers and Section 203 of the Voting Rights Act, which requires officials to provide language assistance to minority groups that need it," The Indian Express report added.

Many people, including Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor, posted tweets featuring Hindi on the ballot receipt.
