After Modi's meeting with Taleb, External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Arindam Bagchi tweeted, "PM lauded Prof Taleb for his contribution in bringing complex ideas of risk and fragility in popular conversations. Highlighted India's growing start-up ecosystem and the risk-taking abilities of India's young entrepreneurs."

The author and thinker expounds on the quirks of history and how they impact the world.
