In what can be called a first, former Indian President Pranab Mukherjee posted a selfie on Twitter on Thursday and Twitter couldn't stop talking about it. 

The 81-year-old posted a photo with a kid named Hamza Saifi who taught him to click selfies. 

The post read: "It is always a pleasure to meet children. Seen here with young visitor Hamza Saifi who taught me how to take a #selfie #CitizenMukherjee"

Interestingly, it was Mukherjee who launched the ‘Selfie with Daughter’ initiative as a part of Beti Padhao Beti Bacho in 2015. This was at the time when he was the 13th President of India. Pranab Mukherjee had a five-year-term from 2012 to 2017.
