Fruit and vegetable carving artist M. Elanchezhian has carved the images of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, US President Donald Trump and Taj Mahal on a watermelon.

He has done this as a mark of welcoming Trump and also showcasing one of the World Wonders Taj Mahal as the backdrop which the former will be visiting soon.

Thirty-one year old Elanchezhian hailing from Gudalur in Theni district in Tamil Nadu carved out the images on a 5-kg watermelon that cost him Rs 150.

Last year he had carved the images of Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping during the latter's visit to Mamallapuram on a watermelon weighing four kg.

"This time around I choose a bigger fruit for carving as there are three images - Modi, Trump and Taj Mahal. Further, this time the images of Modi and Trump are co-joined or like twins whereas the images of the Chinese President and Modi were separated," told  Elanchezhian
