STORY: India's President Pranab Mukherjee hosted 'At Home' ceremony for U.S. President Barack Obama and First Lady, Michelle Obama, on the second leg of their India visit on Monday.
The ceremony was held at the lawns of presidential palace, Rashtrapati Bhawan, in New Delhi. Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived at the event followed by the Obamas.
Among the guests was former Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Vice President Hamid Ansari, states' chief ministers and other dignitaries from across the country.
The ceremony began with the playing of the Indian national anthem. Later, President Mukherjee introduced Obamas to the dignitaries at the reception.
Modi, whose wardrobe has been in media attention, chose to wear a red half jacket over a golden kurta, a traditional Indian attire, with a cream shawl draped around his shoulder.
The leaders posed for photographs as the event drew to an end.
"At Home' is a ceremonial tea party hosted by Indian President in honor of the chief guest present at the Republic Day every year.
Obama and Modi are scheduled to address U.S.-India CEO Forum and India-U.S. business summit later in the day.
