PM Modi and Israel PM Netanyahu took a walk on the beach; a wave of memes followed

After an energetic hug, the prime ministers of both India and Israel were seen 'hanging out at the beach'. Well, not really but it is not very far from the truth. Narendra Modi and his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu visited Dor beach and a picture of both of them there has now taken social media by storm.

A natural fall-out of each of PM Narendra Modi’s international visits in Twitterverse seems to be an onslaught of memes – all in good humour, of course. After all, Modi – who has time and again enjoyed a quip of his own while addressing national and international fora – has given us the #ModiHug.

Well, our PM is currently in Israel, the first Indian prime minister to visit the country, and as part of the official visits was a walk on Dor beach with his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu. During the walk, Modi was shown the country’s state-of-the-art desalination plan. Of course, there were shutterbugs aplenty, and the rather unusual destination for an official visit soon caught the eye of the ever-creative Twitterati, and soon there was a tsunami of memes flooding the Internet.

Sample some of the wittiest ones here.

This is what Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted.

This is outrageously hilarious. You cannot help but laugh at this.

Poor man, we agree.

Previously, Modi’s visits to the US, Germany and the Netherlands also provided many photo opportunities that were soon converted into memes. Be it the guard who stood waiting for “Mrs Modi” at the White House in the US, or Modi’s bicycle ride in the Netherlands. Going by the official schedule, from Israel, Modi will be returning to Germany to attend the G20 Summit.

    Talking about hard working people of Israel see what they have achieved in such a small country in a location where others are busy fighting each other, killing each other, sending their children to "Heaven" in bombers cell (plenty of suicide bombers already gone there!) when they should be playing and going to schools (which is certainly against the little ones wish, before they could even know what life really is)! Most part of Heaven and in fact seems to be on earth and that is what dawns on some before their very eyes, it starts disturbing their mind: how that can happen! How that can happen! God did not reveal that "truth" when He revealed so many "things" like how many wives one can have, who he can have free s e x with (like with slaves), when to take part in active politics (World problems), become violent after prayers etc. etc. This is disturbing because what one is supposed to enjoy in "Heaven" is being enjoyed here on earth by some and even God failed to talk about it!

    To deliver something good, life always does not have to be filled with tension! Isn't it? Good to immitate this in all walk of life while delivering what truly is needed for the people. One thing India can learn from Israel is they are very hard working people for which every Israeli is proud of. Yes, when required same result also can be achieved in a relaxing and friendly atmosphere. To bring peace for others a mind has to be peaceful first. World body perhaps needs a new day to celebrate - world democracy day. Let all the willing top leaders get together on this day bringing in friendly atmosphere which definitely will influence any subsequent outcome when that to take place.

    Completely rubbish "news". Neither funny nor informative nor useful. You published this just because you had to fill some space with no matter what content.
