The letter, which reached the Kevat family on Thursday, PM Modi sent his blessings and best wishes to the new bride and her family.
"Some of my friends asked me to send an invitation to Modiji so I sent one to Delhi and one to his Varanasi office," Kevat said.
"I never expected a response but now that we have got his letter, we are overjoyed. I have shown the letter to all guests at my daughter''s wedding," he added.
