Modi turns Delhi guide for Australian Prime Minister
Prime Minister Narendra Modi for one knows how to play the perfect host. If you thought him fixing tea for then President of United States Barack Obama was a smooth move, he went one step ahead on Monday. The Indian Prime Minister turned Delhi guide for his Australian counterpart. While it was bilateral business, as usual earlier in the day, Narendra Modi turned on his ever charming host avatar to take the Australian Prime Minister around in Delhi.
Delhi metro just got more power
With prime ministers two nations travelling by it, the Delhi Metro essentially was the most powerful place on Monday. Prime Minister Modi led his Australian counterpart, Malcolm Turnbull to the Delhi metro's blue line. Who needs luxury cars when Delhi Metro can do the trick.
Prime Ministers say 'cheese'
What's a first-time ride in a metro without the customary selfie? Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull clicked a selfie with Narendra Modi on Delhi metro even as bureaucrats who had accompanied both leaders stood by smiling. The prime minister duo knew how to make a picture perfect.
Off the metro, to Akshardham
The blue line of Delhi metro took the leaders to the renowned Akshardham Temple. Prime Minister Modi played guide all along. While both leaders were accompanied by the priest of the temple, the Indian Prime Minister was seen explaining about the temple to his Australian counterpart.
On the stairs of Akshardham
This is one rare sight indeed. Both Prime Ministers were clicked sitting on the steps outside the temple and indulging in a conversation. You do not see Prime Ministers sitting on the floor, barefoot, garlanded every day now, do you?
Akshardham's special VVIP visitors
The Prime Minister duo was welcomed with garland at Akshardham after which a buggy escorted them to the temple. Barefoot, the duo was seen offering prayers and posing for pictures. Malcolm Turnbull and Narendra Modi also conducted abhisheka for an idol inside the temple. The duo was taken on a boat ride around the temple.
