There’s one thing Prime Minister Narendra Modi loves more than optics, it’s fashion. On day 1 of the BRICS summit in Goa, he found a way to combine the two.
At an informal dinner that was scheduled outside the BRICS Dome at the Hotel Taj Exotica on the sidelines of the summit, the leaders of all five BRICS nations were present dressed impeccably in Indian wear of kurtas and colourful Modi-Jackets.
Modi himself tweeted a photograph of the five leaders. “All the presidents at #BRICS2016 are wearing what many people call an Indian jacket,” he posted.
The dinner has been set out against the backdrop of the beautiful Cavelossim beach in south Goa, nearly 55 kms from Panaji, where the heads of state have turned out wearing their colorful Indian jackets, ahead of the BRICS summit which will formally start on Sunday.
