Thakur Bhanu Pratap Singh, the esteemed head of the Sooryavansham family, holds the esteemed position of sarpanch in the village of Bharatpur. His noble lineage and virtuous principles have earned him the respect and admiration of the people of Bharatpur. Bhanupratap’s service extends beyond Bharatpur, as he has dedicated himself to the welfare of the 18 neighboring villages in the district.
Within the confines of a magnificent mansion, Bhanupratap resides with his wife, Sharda, their three sons, Karan, Varun, and Heera, and their daughter, Urmila. Each of his sons has pursued different professional paths, with one becoming an engineer and another a doctor.
