We all know that Atal Ji was unmarried and many times he was asked why he decided to stay single throughout his life. He used to say that due to his busy schedule he gave up the idea of marriage. Apparently, he didn’t get married as he devoted his entire life to Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and became a Pracharak. Also, it is being said that he was in love with a female friend Rajkumari Kaul but due to family issues they couldn’t get married. But their friendship continued. Rajkumari Kaul got married and even her husband knew about Atal Ji and her relationship and he respected it.Namita, the daughter of Rajkumari Kaul was adopted by Atal Ji and, and she used to live with him and the Kaul family took care of the former Prime Minister in his old days.
Today Atal Ji is not with us, but his poem, speech, teachings will remain in our heart. The nation can’t forget such a legend and leader like him.May his soul rest in peace!
