Pramoda Devi Wadiyar said she had written a letter to the prime minister, inviting him for breakfast.

"I had invited to come to our house -- it may be a palace for others -- for breakfast, when he comes to Mysuru for Yoga Day. I had written a letter to him and he has accepted it, and we are happy," she said.
