J Jayalalithaa took oath as the Tamil Nadu chief minister for the fifth time on Saturday at the Madras University. 

Jaya's return to power kept Twitterati busy, as hashtags such as #JayaReturns and #Tamil Nadu Chief Minister were among the top trends in India on Saturday.

Among those present at the high-profile ceremony were superstar Rajinikanth and ICC chairman N Srinivasan, but something else seemed to have caught the attention of many Twitterati. 

Twitterati observed that green was the colour of the day, given that Jayalalithaa turned up in a green sari, wore a sparkling green emerald ring on her finger, and even signed using a green pen. 

Jayalalithaa is often seen wearing green, as showcased in the photo slide above, and earlier reports had said that it was her favourite colour, and that she had 'drenched the state in green' during her 2001-2006 rule.  The report says, however, that she later chose maroon as her favourite colour. 

It is not clear if Jaya chose an all-green avatar for her oath-taking ceremony by choice or on an astrologer's advice. It may also be in keeping with the AIADMK party symbol that features two green leaves. 

Jayalalithaa's green look soon became the topic of discussion on Twitter.
