PM Modi was present at the 50th G7 Summit being held in Italy. The internet is thoroughly enjoying glimpses of his formal reunion with Italian PM Giorgia Meloni

Narendra Modi made his first international appearance since being sworn in for his third term as the Prime Minister of India, dated June 9 in New Delhi. Following the same, he received a special invite to attend the ongoing G7 Summit. With Italy hosting the keynote event, it was but obvious that a Modi and Meloni reunion was on the cards. As glimpses from the otherwise formal event started making its way on to social media, the internet as of now is abounding with a renewed interest in #Melodi.

#Melodi for all practical purposes stands as the unofficial ship name for the professional camaraderie PM Modi and Giorgia Meloni share. As a matter of fact, PM Meloni herself shared a short selfie-clip on June 15 following the proceedings of the day for the G7 Summit, where she can be heard saying, "Hello from the 'Melodi' team". PM Modi too features in the clip and can be seen smiling along. The #Melodi brigade on the internet has often found themselves on the receiving end of online brickbats for overtly romanticising the political duo's 'chemistry' per se. However, with Meloni herself making use of the hashtag, the brigade appears to have received the only green flag they need.
