Ronnie Screwvala, serial investor and Co-founder/Chairperson of edtech platform upGrad, posted on X: “Really well-spoken @narendramodi. Most of us debate so much about ‘work-life balance’ but the real answer lies here -- if we love what we do, that’s the balance."

Veteran investor and Info Edge Founder Sanjeev Bikhchandani termed the conversation between Bill Gates and PM Modi as "very interesting".

“Wide range of topics covered -- AI, data, climate, Green GDP etc., but the most interesting to me was the niche topic of millets and the PM’s advocacy of the various advantages of these grains in granular detail,” Bikhchandani posted on X.

“As a millet consumer, I found it fascinating,” he added.

The conversation between PM Modi and Bill Gates also delved into the transformative role of technology in healthcare.

They explored India's remarkable success in combating the Covid-19 pandemic with indigenously developed and produced vaccines, highlighting the nation's self-reliance in crucial healthcare solutions.

Moreover, they also touched upon India's proactive stance in addressing climate change, underscoring the country's commitment to sustainable development.
