So when US Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Delhi for bilateral talks on Monday evening, monsoon rains decided to not care about his VIP status.

Instead of driving smoothly on empty roads, Mr Kerry's motorcade was reportedly stuck in traffic for more than an hour.

It was highly unusual because VIPs are usually given privileges like clear passage on empty roads and no waiting in queues.

And social media quickly started to have some fun at the cost of Mr Kerry's traffic nightmare.
