New Delhi [India], Jul 5 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi has always stood out with his every appearance, be it in different states of India or on his foreign-visits, as his penchant for being fashion conscious is a well known phenomenon. His recent apparel choice that grabbed eyeballs was his attire on the first day of his three-day visit in Israel. Always a stickler for appropriate attire, the Prime Minister alighted from Air India One at Tel Aviv, in an immaculate white bandhgala. Also quite noticeable was the blue pocket square. Significantly, blue and white are the colours of the Israeli flag; and white is PM Modi's preferred colour for solemn occasions, such as the visit to Yad Vashem yesterday, where he added on to his look with a traditional Himachali cap. On this note, he becomes the first Indian Prime Minister to visit Israel. Terming it to be a historic visit, Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted, "Hello Israel! Today I begin a special & historic visit with the aim of further strengthening the relations between India and Israel." <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Hello Israel!
