The daughter of Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, Parakala Vangamayi, got married to Pratik Doshi at their home in Bengaluru on 8 June. It was a small and private wedding with only close friends and relatives in attendance. Political leaders were not invited to the ceremony. Some reports suggest that the wedding took place at a hotel in Bengaluru. The wedding followed Brahmin traditions, and seers from Udupi Adamaru Mutt were present to bless the couple. The wedding ceremony was conducted according to the Vedic order of the Adamaru Mutt.
For the wedding, the bride, Vangamayi, wore a beautiful pink saree with a green blouse, while the groom, Pratik, wore a traditional white outfit. The mother of the bride, Nirmala Sitharaman, wore a Molakalmuru saree. Vangamayi has a master’s degree in Journalism from Northwestern Medill School of Journalism and currently works in the Books and Culture section of Mint Lounge’s features department. Previously, she worked as a features writer at The Hindu.
According to a report by Business Today, the groom, Pratik Doshi, is from Gujarat and works as an Officer on Special Duty (OSD) at the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO). He joined the PMO in 2014 when Narendra Modi became the prime minister for the first time. In 2019, during Modi’s second term, Doshi was appointed as an OSD. It is reported that Doshi is responsible for research and strategy at the PMO. Before this, when PM Modi was the Chief Minister of Gujarat, Doshi worked as a research assistant at the Chief Minister’s office.
Speaking of the bond between the mother and daughter, in September 2019, Sitharaman shared a throwback picture with Vangamayi on Daughter’s Day. She described her daughter as a friend, philosopher, and guide in a tweet.
