Shashi Tharoor and Sunanda Pushkar married at his ancestral home according to Hindu Nair customs at 8.30 a.m on Sunday Aug 22
Marriage was in the presence of Shashi Tharoors 94-year-old maternal grandmother. Sunanda Pushkar was in traditional Kerala attire wearing a ’kasavu’ saree. Fifteen persons from Kashmir have come with Sunanda Pushkar for the wedding. Tharoor’s sons have also come for wedding. Although it was supposed to be a very private function a lot of people had come for the wedding. ’Niraputhiri’ function was also held at the house.
Shashi Tharoor-Sunanda Pushkar sought the blessings of the elders before stepping on to the ’kathirmandapam’.
They will now plunge into a busy schedule soon that will also take them to Dubai and Spain.
Shashi Tharoor-Sunanda Pushkar will Sunday evening head for former Union minister Tharoor’s parliamentary constituency of Thiruvananthapuram.
They will then wing their way to Dubai for a reception and move on to Spain for a short honeymoon. Shashi Tharoor’s 200-year-old ancestral home has been given a fresh coat of paint and a marquee has also come up in front.
“The wedding will take place Sunday . in the presence of his grandmother. Only close relatives and friends of Tharoor will be present.”
According to custom, Shashi Tharoor and Sunanda Pushkar have become man and wife when he tied the ’thali’ around her neck. He also exchanged garlands and handed her ’podava’ or a new set of clothes.
This is the third marriage of both Tharoor and Pushkar.
The couple have hectic days ahead. They will leave by road for Coimbatore to take a flight to Thiruvananthapuram.
“They will arrive in Thiruvananthapuram late Sunday and stay at his rented flat in the city. On Thiru Onam day (Monday) at 10 a.m., there will be a get-together of select invitees.
“Then the next programme would be a reception in Dubai. From there they move on to Spain and on Sep 3, a dinner will be held for their friends in Delhi,” said the aide.
Incidentally, the last Onam for Tharoor too was a memorable one. For the first time in five decades, he celebrated the festival in Kerala by having the traditional Thiru Onam lunch at an orphanage here.
Shashi Tharoor, 54, was born in London but has his roots in Palakkad. He had his school education in Mumbai and Kolkata and secured a Bachelor of Arts degree in history from St. Stephen’s College, Delhi.
