Hugs may be silent, yet they speak volumes, said positivity speaker Carol CC Miller. On Friday, Rahul Gandhi’s hugging of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Parliament spoke louder than his words.

Social media was agog with jokes and memes on the hug as well as the wink that followed the act. Around 6.30pm, hashtags Rahul Gandhi and RahulHugsModi were also trending on twitter.
