PM`s `samdhan` meets Gursharan Kaur
Bhubaneswar: It was the end of an anxious wait for Ratnamala Patnaik, the mother-in-law of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh`s second daughter Daman Singh, when she met her `samdhan` here on Tuesday.
While the Prime Minister was busy at the Indian Science Congress (ISC), his wife Gursharan Kaur visited her samdhan`s house and spent about 90 minutes with Ratnamala and her family members.
"Feeling very good. I cannot express my feelings in words," Kaur told reporters while leaving the place of her Samdhan (relative by marriage) after having breakfast.
Clad in a red-bordered white saree, Kaur even alighted from the vehicle, though it was about to take her to the airport, and posed for photos along with Ratnamala`s family.
"I am extremely happy to see my Samdhan," said Ratnamala, who had painted her house at Kahravel Nagar in the city, located just behind the Sri Ram Mandir.
The Prime Minister`s wife had `parantha` and curd for breakfast, while Ratnamala had purchased a silk saree to present to her samdhan, family sources said. Singh could not meet them due to his tight schedule.
Stating that the PM couple was in regular touch with her and the family, Ratnamala had yesterday said she used to meet the PM when at Delhi.
Ratnamala`s son Ashok Patnaik, an IPS officer, was married to Daman Singh in 1991 and the couple had been staying in Delhi.
