HYDERABAD: Chetan Anand and Gutta Jwala, the two former national badminton champions, would love to remember the Sunday evening for a long, long time as the city's elite blessed the newly-wed couple at the Imperial Gardens. There were long queues of well-wishers waiting for their turn to greet the couple. Led by megastar Chiranjeevi, everyone who is someone in the City of Pearls was there.

The unobtrusive former World junior chess champion Koneru Humpy, accompanied by her father Ashok, and IM Lanka Ravi too were there. So were the politicians from different parties including Secunderabad MP Anjan Kumar Yadav, CPI (M) leader B.V.Raghavulu, and Daggubati Purandareshwari, MP.

But the gentleman who was the cynosure of all eyes was the Dronacharya S.M.Arif who is credited with grooming Jwala into a champion shuttler since she was 10 years of age. The warmth of Jwala's father Kranthi and his Chinese wife was too discernible to be ignored as they welcomed guests with a smile.
