Los Angeles, Nov 10 (IANS) Singer Miley Cyrus did a nude shoot for a photography book by Indian American fashion photographer Vijat Mohindra.
The pop star posed in the buff in a yellow coffin in one photo. Cyrus wore a shoulder-length blonde wig and used yellow and white flowers to cover her modesty. She posed with her arms folded across her chest, looking into the camera, reports dailymail.co.uk.
Mohindra posted the image on Instagram, and in the caption said proceeds from sales would go to Cyrus’ Happy Hippie Foundation that helps homeless LGBTQ youth.

It is now clear that Kamala Harris, the first Indian American and Black American candidate on a US presidential ticket, will be America’s next Vice President, capping a historic run for the nation’s second-highest office. Harris’ lightning fast political rise and her triumph marks a high point for women of colour in politics at an anxious time in American society. Harris, 55, is a California senator, the daughter of a Jamaican father and an Indian mother. She is also a former prosecutor whose grilling of Trump’s appointees and unflappable cool has transported her to Democratic Party stardom. Harris won her first election in 2003 and became San Francisco’s district attorney. In 2010, she became the first woman of colour to be elected California’s attorney general. Harris was elected to the US Senate in 2016. The historic nature of Harris’ candidacy has underlined her every stump speech, and Harris handled the pressure with a certain confidence that comes from years of tough questioning and tons of preparation. Surrounded by the unmistakable aura of a historic campaign, the Harris candidacy has had some remarkable moments since August. First came Harris’ introduction to America, during the Democratic National Convention. “There’s another woman, whose name isn’t known, whose story isn’t shared. Another woman whose shoulders I stand on. And that’s my mother.” “She’d say, ‘Well, what are you going to do about it?'” has become Harris’ favourite pull out on her mother Shyamala Gopalan, a woman who paved the way for Harris’ pathbreaking candidacy. Shyamala Gopalan came here from India at age 19 to pursue her dream of curing cancer. At the University of California Berkeley, she met Donald Harris who had come from Jamaica to study economics. “They fell in love in that most American way — while marching together for justice in the civil rights movement of the 1960s.” Harris’ father, in an essay, describes his elder child Kamala Harris as “ever the adventurous and assertive one”.
