The only son of the erstwhile ruling dynasty of Udaipur, Lakshyaraj Singh got engaged to Nivritti Kumari Singh Deo of the former royal of family of Balangir. Engagement ceremony is held at the Fateh Prakash Palace in the City Palace.

At the ’tilak shrifal dastoor’ ceremony, Lakshyaraj of the Mewar family marks his engagement to Nivritti Kumari of Balangir family, in Udaipur on December 5, 2013.

The ceremony was performed in true Mewari tradition in keeping with the commitment of living heritage, a statement from the House of Mewar said.

Lakshyaraj Singh is a direct descendant of luminaries in Indian history such as Maharana Sanga and Maharana Pratap. Following the footsteps of his father, he has taken over several key responsibilities in the family business and was recently promoted to the position of Executive Director of HRH Group of Hotels.

Nivritti Kumari is the only child of Odisha Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Kanak Vardhan Singh Deo and former Balangir MP Sangeeta Singh Deo.

The engagement ceremony, known as the ‘Tilak Shrifal Dastoor’, is a ceremony, during which the bride’s father, her brother and other close male relatives brought the ’tilak’ for the groom from Patna Balangir. In this ceremony, only the men from the bride’s side participate while all from the groom’s side are present.

This ceremony is so called because, according to tradition, the bride’s brother applies a tilak on the groom’s forehead which makes the alliance or engagement official. A sword, clothes, fruits, sweets and other presents are offered to the groom.

The event marked the beginning of the festivities for Lakshyaraj’s wedding with Nivritti Kumari on January 21.

The House of Mewar, is said to be the world’s oldest serving dynasty.
