The Narendra Modi-led NDA government completed three years in office today. The 66-year-old BJP icon is one of the most camera-friendly leaders in the world, so much so that there are even jokes that he can spot cameras even if they are hidden.

From rubbing shoulders with world leaders to donning exotic head gears and wearing designer kurtas, Modi has generated many memorable, sometimes funny, moments in the past three years that have created a buzz on social media.

For instance, take Modi’s trip to the Terracotta Warriors Museum in China, or his meeting with figures like Barack Obama, Mark Zuckerberg, Prince William and Francois Hollande. Modi has truly proven to be a photographer’s delight.

But a moment that Modi's admirers as well as critics are waiting for, is when he comes face-to-face with US President Donald Trump. Be prepared for an avalanche of memes, jokes and viral pictures when that encounter takes place.

Until that happens, take a look at some of Modi's best pictures from the past three years.
