PALAKKAD: The former Union Minister, Shashi Tharoor, and Sunanda Pushkar tied the knot in a traditional Kerala-style wedding ceremony at Mr. Tharoor's ancestral house at Elavanchery in Palakkad district on Sunday morning.

The ceremony was attended only by close relatives of the bride and bridegroom. Mr. Tharoor and Ms. Pushkar were dressed in traditional Kerala attire and the ceremony was over in ten minutes.

The newlyweds were blessed by Mr. Tharoor's grandmother Jayasankari, mother Lilly Chandran Tharoor, uncles Narayanan Unni and Mukundan Unni, and Ms. Pushkar's father Colonel Pushkarnath Das.

The marriage was also attended by Siva, Ms. Pushkar's son from her earlier marriage, and Mr. Tharoor's sons from his first marriage, Ishaan and Kanishk.

This is the third marriage for both Mr. Tharoor and Ms. Pushkar.

Though the ceremony was strictly a family affair, it was attended by close associates of Mr. Tharoor, including former Union Minister Mani Sankar Iyer, former Indian Ambassador T.P. Sreenivasan, and film actor T.P. Madhavan.
