On his second day in India, the warm welcome, hugs and chats continued for US President Barack Obama, who is in the country for a three-day visit.
Obama, who was the chief guest at the Republic Day parade, was often seen during the parade having chats with Modi while Michelle looked on.
Even at President Pranab’s ‘At home’ function, they continued their animated conversations.
Here are some top moments of Obama’s day.

This might not have been the selfie we were waiting for, but nonetheless it’s a cute selfie. Hollywood actor Kal Penn, who’s real name is Kalpen Suresh Modi, and known as the American Modi met his Indian counterpart on Monday at the Rashtrapati Bhavan. And such a moment warranted a selfie.
