A Royal Lineup

It was a wedding royale though close knit and attended by only those very deeply associated with the family. Princess Sehar Inder Singh, the daughter of Tikka Raninder Singh of Patiala, tied the knot with Aditya Narang, son of Devin and Priya Narang. Sehar, a philanthropist entrepreneur who works with her mother Rishma Kaur in her company Berger Paints when not pushing causes noble causes and gender issues in Punjab, was thrilled when her grandfather Captain Amarinder Singh sang the suhag. A ceremonial song sung traditionally by the bride’s family, the Chief Minister of Punjab, a celebrated war hero, a historian and a great chef added yet another laurel to his prolific cap.

Rishma Kaur, who straddles two lives, one as the bahu and the other as the entrepreneur, looked stunning in a red shalwar-kameez. The two-day affair saw the first families of Rampur, Kashmir, Patna Bolangir and Kapurthala in attendance. While the women were seen dressed in their signature splendorous shalwar-kameez and ornamental tika on their forehead, the men in their achkans and churidaars brought out the family’s jewelled swords.

Of all the tales the most endearing was to see Maharaja Kapurthala Brigadier Sukhjit Singh bond with his course-mate Captain Amarinder Singh.
