Trishika Kumari Singh, daughter of Harshwardhan Singh and Maheshri Kumari, members of royal family of Dungarpur of Rajasthan gets married to Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wadiyar, successor of Wadiyar family.
In the wedding celebration that took place in the Mysore Palace, family members and other close relatives attended the function in morning. In evening, in the splendid reception, few politicians of BJP attended the function and showered their blessings on bride & groom.
It is pertinent to note that marriage of Yaduveer and Trishika was fixed in childhood. But on becoming adults, their meetings were fixed for quite a long time and finally after mutual agreement, they both got ready for marrying each other. Family members from both side are thus considering this marriage as arranged instead of love marriage.
Trishika has studied from Christ College of Bengaluru while Yaduveer holds the degree of English and Economics from University of Boston.
Trishika’s father Harshvardhan Singh has been recently nominated as Rajyasabha Member by BJP.
Mysore Place has witnessed celebration of marriage almost after 40 years. Before this marriage, Late King Srikantdutt Narsimhraj got married to Pramoda Devi in 1976.
On Monday, in the lucky time of 9.05 am to 9.40 am, marriage took place in Kalyan Mandap of Mysore Palace. Yaduveer and Trishika sat on a swing from 7.30 pm to 8.30 pm and were seen playing from a ball made up of flowers. ‘Kashi Yatri’ ritual was performed in a private function. Instead of traditional dance performances that form part of major royal weddings, Carnatic music concert by Mysore Violin Brothers, M. Nagaraj and M. Manjunath was held as part of the royal merriments. Grand reception will take place in the Darbar hall from 7.30 pm on Tuesday in which more than 2000 guests, Bollywood celebrities, politicians, singers and VIP guest shall attend the function and shower their blessings on the bride and groom.
