New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping’s informal two-day summit in Wuhan, capital of China’s Hubei Province, has been peppered with light moments and cultural symbolism.

On Saturday, the PM was accorded a grand reception by Xi at the Hubei Provincial Museum, where the two leaders held the first of their six meetings during the unprecedented ‘heart-to-heart’ summit. A traditional performance depicting the music of Hubei was the highlight of the red carper welcome accorded to the PM.



Following an informal chat, Modi was taken on a guided tour of the museum, which has a large number of state-level historic and cultural relics.

During the tour, the PM was treated to an instrumental rendition of 1982 song Tu, Tu Hai Wohi from the movie Yeh Vaada Raha.



Following their museum visit, PM Modi presented to Xi the reprints of two paintings made by Xu Beihong, a famous Chinese artist during his stay at Santiniketan between 1939 and 1940.

Xu was known for his Chinese ink paintings of horses and birds. He was one of the first Chinese artists to articulate the need for artistic expressions that reflected a modern China at the beginning of the 20th century. The paintings depicted a horse and sparrows on grass.
