Social media went ROFL after they noticed the weirdness in the much-awaited meeting between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Remember what happened in 2015 when Modi was about to shake hands with Merkel?
Let us take you back down the memory lane.
In 2015, during his first official visit to Germany, as PM Modi went towards Merkel to shake hands, the German Chancellor almost ignored him and went towards the background where the flags of the two nations were kept and later completed the formality of shaking hands.
A similar incident was noticed this time as well. Modi is on an official visit to Germany after two years. At the end of his speech, while the two issued the joint statement, Modi turned towards Merkel and extended his hand for a handshake. But the lady, almost unaware of the extended hand, ignored Modi and guided him towards the photo op. The two later shook hands with their respective national flags in the backdrop.

Seems like a déjà-vu moment for the two leaders!
