Born with a golden spoon in his mouth, Maharaja Sawai Padmanabh Singh has a good head on his young shoulders. Like his illustrious ancestors, the 18-year-old Pacho as he is popularly known has been brought up like any other kid.
In an interview with a local English newspaper, Pacho says the credit goes his parents – Maharaj Narendra Singh and Diya Kumari – who brought up him in a humble way, not allowing the royal lineage to go to his head.
“My parents made sure that I was treated equivalent to my peers at school. I studied at a boarding school in Ajmer where I did not any special facilities.”
Pacho , who like a normal student lived in a dormitory at Ajmer school, says he is very social and whenever he interacts with people he don’t keep his “royal status” in mind. That is why he says never faced any problem at Ajmer school or at Millfield School in England.
His mother Diya Kumari, who is an MLA from Sawai Madhopur, has played a big role in shaping his personality.
“My mother has been a huge influence in my life. One quality that I really admire in her is the commitment. She is committed to her constituency Sawai Madhopur and different sections of the society. I also admire her for the work-family balance she displays in her day-to-day working.”
