Soorya Krishnamurthy needs no introduction. He is a pioneer in organising various cultural fests and a veteran patron of art. This time he is in the news for avoiding all the pomp and extravaganza during the wedding of his daughter Sita.

 

Sita, a trainee at the Civil Service Academy, married her batchmate Chandan Kumar on Saturday, May 13 in Thiruvananthapuram. It was a low-key wedding that was conducted in the puja room of her father's residence the Thaikkad House.

Sita who wore a red saree and ditched heavy gold jewellery unlike many Kerala brides and the groom who is from a Rajput family in Bihar wore a matching sherwani complete with a turban. The cultural connoisseur also avoided the extravagant buffet and also kept it simple with payasam only.

 

Earlier, while sending out the wedding invitations he had asked the guests to avoid any kind of gifts and instead to visit the couple at his house between May 13 and 15 and bless them wholeheartedly. He had also mentioned that the guests will be served payasam and light refreshments.

 

He had also declared that he would use Rs 15 lakh, money he had saved for SIta's wedding, to sponsor the education of 20 students who belong to the economically backwards section of the society for the next four years. Students from his alma matter Model School, Government Arts College and TKM Engineering College will be the beneficiaries.

 

The groom Chandan is the son of Dr Madhusoodhan Singh and Priya Singh from the Vaishali district in Bihar.
