Vijaya Raje Scindia wanted to marry army officer, but fate turned upside down

Rajmata Vijayaraje Scindia, one of the founders of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), was open-minded from the very beginning. Rajmata belonged to the royal family of Nepal. The family had sent him to IT College in Lucknow for his studies. Vijayaraje, known as Lekha Divyeshwari Devi, met a civil servant here before the wedding. Brij Bihari Singh, an officer, wanted to marry Vijayaraje. But, things could not proceed. Meanwhile, the heart of the account fell on a military officer. The two loved each other and the wedding date was also fixed. Senior journalist and writer Rashid Kidwai have elaborated on the occasion in his book 'The House of Scindias: A Saga of Power, Politics and Intrig'.

Kidwai writes, The next lover of accounts was an Army officer. Lt Dushyant Chauhan was posted in Sagar. Both the families had approved the marriage proposal. The horoscope of the bride and groom was also delivered to each other's houses and the wedding date was fixed as May 8, 1940. But, in the fate of 21 years of account, something else was written. Suddenly World War II was declared and Lt. Chauhan was sent to Europe to fight on behalf of Britain. The wedding date could have been extended, but the groom refused to marry. The family then started searching for the groom once again for accounts. The matter reached the royal family of Tripura. The history of this family was also glorious. The British Government had also given the title of Maharaja to this family. Prince Durjay Kishore Dev Burman was the 180th king of the Manikya dynasty. The two families also met in Calcutta.

In fact, it was believed in the royal families that no one would go to anyone's house before the wedding was fixed. That is why the meeting took place outside. Lekha's family was very cautious about their marriage. So they started gathering information about the groom. However, for some reason, the king could not marry Lekha. Lekha Divyeshwari's relationship then reached Maharaj Jivaji Rao of the Gwalior Scindia dynasty. The two families met at the Taj Hotel in Mumbai. Here Jivaji Rao addressed the account as Maharani and liked him at first sight. At the same time, Jivaji Rao invited Lekha's family to visit the Sea Palace. The account was welcomed here like a Queen. A few days later, Jivaji Rao handed over the marriage proposal to Nepal House in the hands of Chandan Singh, the uncle of the account. Initially, Scindia and Maratha chieftains opposed the marriage. However, Vijayaraje Scindia later won the hearts of the entire family and the two got married.
