Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Twitter shared that he could not 'see the Sun due to cloud cover' in New Delhi on Thursday.
Today, India observed the last solar eclipse of the decade.
PM Modi also joined in along with many Indians to witness the natural phenomenon. However, the photos shared by the PM become 'perfect' fodder for the meme makers.
A Twitter user, namely Gappistan Radio, posted one of the pictures and captioned it: This is becoming a meme.
Though the user has not tagged PM Modi, the Prime Minister retweeted the post and said: Most welcome... enjoy, followed a smiley emoji.

Like many Indians, I was enthusiastic about #solareclipse2019.— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) December 26, 2019
Unfortunately, I could not see the Sun due to cloud cover but I did catch glimpses of the eclipse in Kozhikode and other parts on live stream. Also enriched my knowledge on the subject by interacting with experts. pic.twitter.com/EI1dcIWRIz
