New Delhi: Prime Minister Tony Abbott on Friday gifted a 'Nehru Jacket' made of the famous Australian wool to his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi, who reciprocated by presenting a book on yoga.

Modi gave a book on yoga to Abbott, who expressed interest in the traditional Indian forms of physical, mental, and spiritual practices, according to officials here.

The gifts were exchanged during a meeting the two Prime Ministers had after which the important civil nuclear deal was inked between the two.

Abbott is the first Head of Government, except leaders of SAARC nations, to visit the country after Modi government's installation.
