Among those who attended the reception at the India Habitat Centre on Friday night were various Union ministers, Bharatiya Janata Party leaders L K Advani and Arun Jaitley and envoys from several countries including China and Pakistan.

A former United Nations under secretary general and Union minister Tharoor, 54, had tied the knot with Pushkar, a Dubai-based entrepreneur in a typical Malayali wedding ceremony in his ancestral home at Elavanchery village near Palakkad in Kerala on August 22.

This is Tharoor's third marriage. His first marriage was to Tilottama Mukherjee, an academic who he knew from his school days in Kolkata. Tharoor recently divorced his second wife, Canadian diplomat Christa Giles.
