The trolling will test your meditation skills and ‘being like a Ninja’: PM Modi quips after billionaire Raymon Dalio calls him ‘one of the best leaders’

Dalio had conducted an on-stage discussion after Prime Minister Modi's keynote address at the third iteration of the Future Investment Initiative (FII) event, also known as the "Davos in the Desert", which was organised recently in Saudi Arabia.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi who often makes witty comments took to Twitter to warn Raymond Dalio of trolls coming his way for showering praises at him through a thread of Tweets.

Responding to the billionaire hedge fund manager, Ray Dalio’s Tweet wherein he called Modi “one of the best, if not the best leader in the world”, PM said: “The trolling after these words of praise would give you the best opportunity to test your meditation skills and being “like a Ninja.”! 

After thanking Dalio for the praise, Modi said his comments “make for a healthy discussion, in the spirit of being radically open-minded”.

Along with the text, Ray Dalio shared a YouTube video where he and PM Narendra Modi were holding discussions on a range of issues. This was after the PM’s keynote address at Saudi Arabia’s flagship annual investor meeting recently.

The American billionaire investor posted on Twitter a video of his sit-down discussion with Modi. “I had an opportunity to explore with him how he thinks as well as what he thinks,” Dalio tweeted about his conversation with the prime minister on October 29.

Dalio in another Tweet praised the initiatives like the Make in India initiative and Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, that has been adopted by the Modi’ government over the years. “He is doing that by providing both basics and cutting edge digital technologies as part of his mission for India’s direction. For example, his government built more than 100 million toilets which reduced diseases potentially saving approximately 300,000 lives by some estimates”, said the philanthropist in his Tweet.

“What I’m most impressed about with Modi is how he has brought the country together by helping the full range of people, from those who are in abject poverty to rich business leaders”, Tweeted Dalio adding: “In my opinion, Indian’s Prime Minister Modi is one of the best, if not the best, leaders in the world”.

Raymond Dalio is an American billionaire investor, hedge fund manager, and philanthropist. Dalio is the founder, co-chairman and co-chief investment officer of investment firm Bridgewater Associates, one of the world’s largest hedge funds. Bloomberg ranked him as the world’s 58th wealthiest person in June 2019.

He had conducted an on-stage discussion after Prime Minister Modi’s keynote address at the third iteration of the Future Investment Initiative (FII) event, also known as the “Davos in the Desert”, which was organised recently in Saudi Arabia’ Riyadh.

Dalio, during the on-stage discussion, had talked about learning how to meditate after being influenced by the Beatles who studied it in India in the 1960s. He had quizzed the Prime Minister about his meditation practice, his thought process and how that pertained to looking at the world itself. He had then too, praised Modi for doing “many remarkable things” in India.

Meanwhile, in a series of tweets, in response to Dalio’s praise, Prime Minister Modi said: “To empower so many Indians, especially women, has been one of the most satisfying efforts of our tenure. The credit for the same goes to the people of India who made these movements their own and drove the transformation.”

In another Tweet, the PM said: “The mandate people blessed our team with has been unseen for decades. A full five-year government coming back to the office with a majority was last seen many years ago. A cross-section of people, across regions, religions, languages, age groups and occupations has blessed us.”
