Dalai Lama once beat first Premier of China in ping pong!

Dalai Lama once beat first Premier of China in ping pong!Washington, Feb 26 : Dalai Lama has said that as a child he once beat the post powerful Chinese leaders of the 20th century: Zhou Enlai, the premier of China from 1949 to 1976, in a game of ping pong.

In the movie 'Caddyshack' - directed and co-written by the late Harold Ramis - the character Carl Spackler, played by Bill Murray, reminisces about caddying in Tibet for the Dalai Lama.

The line apparently stuck with President Barack Obama, who in his statement on Monday's passing of Ramis, made what is almost certainly the first official reference to ' Caddyshack.'

At the very end of an interview with the Dalai Lama last week, ABC News asked the question if he played golf.

The Dalai Lama answered that he could play an excellent game of ping pong, and in fact had once, as a child, defeated one of the post powerful Chinese leaders of the 20th century: Zhou Enlai , the premier of China from 1949 to 1976. (ANI)
