Samdhan of PM to meet Gursharan Kaur

Bhubaneswar: Ratnamala Patnaik, mother-in-law of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh`s second daughter Daman Singh, is anxiously waiting to meet her `Samdhan` here on January 3. "Dr Singh may not come to my house due to his tight schedule. But, I am confident his wife Gursharan Kaur would come here," Ratnamala told reporters.

"I have purchased a silk saree to presnet to my Samdhan," Ratnamala, in her 70s, said. Ratnamala`s son Ashok Patnaik, an IPS officer, was married to Daman Singh in 1991 and the couple had been staying in Delhi.

Asked about the menue for the PM`s wife who is likely to take lunch at her, Patnaik`s elder sister Rajalaxmi said "They are completely vegetarian. She also likes Odia food. Therefore, we will prepare typical Odia food."
