On his second official visit to Germany, PM Modi got snubbed again as Chancellor Markel produced a replay of what seems to be an another handshake snub. Just like in 2015, PM Modi offered his hand straight-away to incoming Chancellor Merkel only to be snubbed again exactly in the same fashion.
Though moments later, they both went to shake each other's hands vigorously this time with a better backdrop.But this snubbing of hands on Ms Merkel's part is not new. She is quite infamous for snubbing people not just in Germany but around the world.
In the above video, she can be seen snubbing Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat altogether. There have been many such other instances when Ms Merkel Mercilessly ignored people on their faces.
But this March came with a bit of a role reversal as on a state visit to the United States of America, it was she who got snubbed by none other than President Trump.
No wonder Ms Merkel is a world leader who likes to assert her authority from time to time but in the times of Trump and a wounded dragon, it would be wise on her part to be seen as a world leader rather than a megalomaniac.
