Among the many pictures shared by Tharoor, he wore yellow kurta and white mundu in one of them while breaking a coconut at a temple in Karnataka. “Offered a ‘Niramala’ at the Elevanchery Bhagavathy Kshetram a few minutes from my ancestral home (where I also smashed a ritual coconut and prayed to the Naga gods worshipped by all Nairs).
