Mukkamala Sridhar Swamiji performed the marriage of his daughter in a strange manner. Considering his daughter as Sri Mahalakshmi and his son-in-law as Sri Maha Vishnu, the swamiji made them dress in the fashion of these mythological deities, with crowns et al. He and his wife, along with his disciples, dressed in similar fashion as gods and godesses. The entire ceremony was performed in a grand manner, at Tanuku. The swamiji is running the ashram here for the past 20 years.
