Narendra Modi became the 14th recipient of the Seoul Peace Prize on Friday.
The award ceremony was held in Seoul in a grand ceremony, followed by a Presidential luncheon hosted by Moon Jae-in. While South Korean hospitality was its best, a gesture by some South Korean children has been winning hearts.
During the luncheon in the Blue House, a group of students performed the Indian bhajan 'Vaishnava Jan Toh' to honour Modi. The children were dressed in colorful Indian attire and sang along with coordinated dance steps.
A video of the cute performance was shared on Twitter by India's Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Ravish Kumar. "Have you seen a more endearing rendition of Vaishnav Jan To bhajan?" he wrote. He added that the performance was put up by the children's choir of the Indian Cultural Centre.
