In Bengaluru to talk about technology today, Ms Merkel is wearing a pastel pink jacket while PM Modi is in an off-white Nehru jacket.
However, the similarity of their jackets yesterday was hard to ignore. The matching colours were most marked when the PM and the German Chancellor appeared side by side to address the press after a three-hour meeting.
The PM wore a white half sleeved Modi kurta, with a Nehru jacket in a soft hue. Ms Merkel teamed her sky blue blazer with a pair of black trousers.
Social media was soon abuzz with witty one liners.

So apparently the biggest news about #MerkelinIndia and her interaction with Modi is that they got matching jackets.- M. D. (@AemDoor) October 5, 2015
The two sides signed 18 agreements and PM Modi hailed Germany as India's "natural partner." This is Ms Merkel's first visit to India after PM Modi took office.
The Prime Minister greeted the German Chancellor after the meet and had greeted her with a "namaste" as she arrived. Germany is India's most important trading partner in Europe.
Very pleased with the discussions with Chancellor Merkel & the broad range of outcomes that will benefit our nations pic.twitter.com/jLHFpHZGOW- Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) October 5, 2015
