As Indian pageantry welcomed the US president on his second visit to New Delhi, media outlets dished out extensive details on the visit -- from Michelle Obama's saris to the best "broments" between the two leaders.

The Twitter community also took to examining Barack Obama's visit in a typically amusing manner -- analysing the already famous bear-hug as well as its consequences on regional geopolitics and tensions. Some Pakistanis started hashing out conspiracy theories and even went so far as to blaming the nationwide #poweroutage on Obama's visit.

Here are some of the best tweets:
