Ratnamala Patnaik is in news once again. Media persons often calling her or visiting her residence at Kharavela Nagar, Bhubaneswar. Interestingly, whenever Prime Minister Dr.Manmohan Singh  pays a visit to Odisha, she always comes to limelight. And all this happens because; Ratnamala Patnaik is one of the “Samdhan” of present PM of India. This 75 years old lady is mother-in-law of  Dr. Manmohan Singh’s second daughter Daman Singh. She has married A.K.Patnaik, son of late Sachidananda Patnaik and Ratnamala Patnaik, in1991.

Ratnamala is now busy in the preparations to welcome her 'Samdhi' and 'Samdhan'. Her house is now packed-up with close relatives, who have rushed to her place as a gesture of goodwill. The local police is also on alert for the expected visit of PM couple; the security at her residence in Kharavela Nagar has been beefed up.

Though everyone is anxiously waiting for the high-profile in-laws at Kharvel Nagar, but sources close to Ratnamala reveals that, chances of Dr. Manmohan Singh’s visit to his Samdhan’s place is less, as his schedule is hectic.  But everyone expects Gurusaran Kaur, the wife of  honorable PM. She will be there when Dr. Singh will inaugurate the 99th Science Congress at KITT University Campus of Bhubaneswar.

Though Bhubaneswar Commissinorate Police maintains silence over the visit of PM couple to their in-laws house, but a close friend of Ratnmala confirms, “We are almost sure that, Gurusaran will pay a visit. As per programme, when PM is scheduled to inaugurate 99th session of Indian Science Congress, she may give in a trip". He further says, “Gurusharan will be served several items of typical Odisha cuisine. Ratnamala has also prepared some favourite items for her daughter-in-law Daman, which will be handed over to Gurusharan. As per age long tradition of Odisha, Samdhan will also present a typical Odishi sari to Gurusharan.”

PM Dr. Manmohan Singh is scheduled to arrive here on Monday evening to attend the 99th Session of Indian Science Congress on Tuesday.
