Kalaf-wala kurta? Check. Choori-daar pajama? Check. Embroidered shawl? Check. Black traditional sandals? Check. A pair of black shades? Check.

With a classy ensemble like that, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi makes yet another style statement during his China tour.

After Na-Mo blew our minds with his ‘self’-embroidered suit, Modi appears in awe of the Terracotta Army at the Museum of Qin Terracotta Warriors and Horses, in Xian, Shaanxi province, but retains enough of his senses to know when to strike a pose!

Unlike some of our own leaders, Modi stands tall even though he isn’t. Surely there’s a lesson in this for us. After criticism of Pakistani President Mamnoon Hussain’s attire during the Chinese President’s visit, is it time our politicians started getting some tips from our neighbours?

The PM, who is active on Twitter, has also been live tweeting his visit and his photos are already doing the rounds on the cyber circuit.

Here’s him posing for a selfie with his Chinese counterpart:

Of course, his followers have taken to Twitter to offer their two cents. Enjoy!
