GIA Global Polls is a global evaluation of world leaders. Prime Minister Modi, who was once awarded the highest rank by an Indian prime minister, has whipped Xi Jinping, Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump. The US President failed to reach the top ten and was ranked 11th in the poll, Chinese President Xi Jinping 5th, Russian President Vladimir Putin 6th.
The GIA polls come as Prime Minister Narendra Modi makes her debut at the World Economic Forum in Davos, where India is a priority country. The surveys were conducted in 50 countries, including Canada and the European Union.

On this occasion, the Prime Minister praised Dr. Karan Singh on Indian Philosophy. He added that his efforts have revived the identities of Jammu and Kashmir that have ruled the tradition of all of India for centuries. He said that thousands of scholars have devoted their entire lives to a thorough study of the Gita, which is evident in the analysis of different interpretations of each verse of a single scripture and the expressions of so many mystics. He added that it is also a symbol of India’s ideological freedom and tolerance, which motivates everyone to have their own opinion.
The Prime Minister said that Adi Shankaracharya, who united India, saw Gita as a spiritual consciousness. Saints like Ramanujacharya had produced the Gita as an expression of spiritual knowledge. For Swami Vivekananda, Gita was a source of unwavering zeal and indomitable confidence. For Sri Aurobindo, the Gita was a true embodiment of knowledge and humanity. The Gita was a beacon in Mahatma Gandhi’s most difficult times. Gita was the inspiration for Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s patriotism and courage. This is the Gita explained by Bal Gangadhar Tilak, who revived the struggle for freedom.
The Prime Minister declared that our democracy gives us freedom of thought, freedom to work and equal rights in all areas of our lives. This freedom comes from the democratic institutions that are guardians of our Constitution. That is why, he said, when we talk about our rights, we must also think about our democratic duties.
The Prime Minister said that Gita is a book for the whole world and for every creature. It has been translated into many Indian and international languages, and research is conducted by many international researchers in many countries.
The Prime Minister said it was Indian culture to share knowledge. He said that our knowledge of mathematics, textiles, metallurgy or ayurved will always be treated as the humanistic wealth. Today, India is once again expanding its potential to contribute to worldwide progress and to serve humanity. He noted that India’s contribution has recently been seen by the world. This message will help the world on a much larger scale in the pursuit of an AtmaNirbhar Bharat, he concluded.
