New Delhi: PM Modi has just returned to India on the completion of his three-nation tour. The Pm visited Portugal, US and finally Netherlands. Interestingly, the year also marks 70-years of Indo-Dutch Diplomatic ties. While there were quite a few more important discussions at the tour, one thing that stands out seems to have no political connection at all.

PM Modi, during his visit to Netherlands tweeted enthusiastically in Dutch several times, to which his Dutch counterpart Mark Rutte replied in Hindi. But, it seems like there might have been a few glitches in the message. A faulty keyboard maybe? The message that was tweeted had not a single space in between. Quite a mouthful to read actually.
