For the moment, though, Rajmata's first will dated September 20, 1985—which had barred her son from even performing her last rites—continues to embarrass Madhavrao. Says S. Gurumurthy, one of the two executors (the other is the Rajmata's private secretary Sardar Sambaji Rao Angre) of the will: "The Scindia sisters inherit 80 per cent of the property and 20 per cent has been left to a trust. The entire property has been left in a 'common kitty' and it is up to the two executors to divide this." However, Gurumurthy told Outlook: "I have written to Angre that I can't afford the time to act as an executor." Which effectively leaves Angre as the sole executor.

Sardar Angre, however, is not the only one who is delighted. Dr J.K. Jain, of Jain TV fame, who was the Rajmata's protege in the bjp, can also smile. For a long time, the Scindia sisters have been trying to evict him from the premises of the 32-acre Scindia Villa located in south Delhi. But instead of siding with her children, the Rajmata has willed Jain the right to 'continue in the present position which he occupies in the companies/institutions under my ownership or control'. She also waives the dues owed to her by Angre and in addition gifts him two stud farms in Jodhpur. Angre explains: "My wife ran the Rajmata's kitchen so this pertains to the loose change left over."
