Varun Gandhi ties nuptial knot with Yamini Roy in Varanasi

Varanasi, March 6, 2011: Varun Gandhi, the flamboyant BJP MP and grandson of former Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi tied nuptial knot with Kolkata-based graphic designer Yamini Roy Choudhury in a simple ceremony in Kamakoti Temple at Hanuman Ghat here on Sunday.

Varun, who was in a cream “kurta-dhoti” with saffron “angvastram” got married to Yamini in presence of Kanchi Kamkoti Peeth Shankaracharya Swami Jayendra Saraswati. Yamini wore a pink saree which had been gifted by Indira Gandhi to her daughter-in-law Maneka Gandhi about 40 years ago.

Amidst Shehnai tunes, blowing of conch shells and Damroo beats, the ceremony, presided over by six priests, took about one and half hours to complete the rituals as per Sanatan-Hindu custom, in the presence of a select gathering that besides Maneka included the girl's mother Aruna Vasudev.
