Modi received May at the Hyderabad House and the two leaders were seen talking to each other during the brief stroll. They stopped for while near a pond full of water lilies before continuing their walk towards the iconic main building, used mostly to hold high profile bilateral events with visiting foreign dignitaries.
The high levels of pollution in Delhi air was not a deterrent for the two leaders.
“A time for reflection; an occasion to forge a special connection. The Prime Ministers take a walk in the gardens of Hyderabad House,” MEA spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted.
During his January, 2015 visit to India, Modi had hosted Obama for tea at the Hyderabad House gardens. The two leaders had taken a stroll under a warm wintry sun.
