N R Narayana Murthy. Sudha Murty.

Names many middle class and affluent Indians are familiar with.

Today, though, they are also known as the parents of Akshata Murty, who is married to British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak.

While India has been buzzing for many months about the G20 Summit, it was the visit of 'India's son-in-law' and 'daughter' that drew much attention this weekend.

Rishi too looked pleased to be making his first trip as PM to his wife's home country.

Akshata is wearing a riot of lovely colours and she carries them off well.
Yes, the flowers are everywhere :)


Akshata Murthy and Rishi Sunak

Akshata doesn't believe in fancy hair-dos.
She leaves her straight black hair loose over her shoulders

Just like this couple, na, who make a good team?
