Arun-kumar-mishraIF you are a top ranking civil servant and happen to be the son-in-law of a Supreme Court judge, then imagine the guest list of those who attend even a mundan (hair shaving) ceremony. Yes, even the Prime Minister and Home Minister were there. Lutyens Delhi’s power circle was abuzz after a tweet from a lawyer about the high-profile mundan. Those in attendance were President Ram Nath Kovind, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and a number of chief ministers, among others. “Apparently this blue-eyed Joint Secretary is the son in law of a senior SC judge and the mundan ceremony of his daughter was at the residence of that Judge!” the prominent lawyer tweeted.
