PM Narendra Modi cites Indian cricket team Australia win, says positive mindset leads to positive results which is Aatmanirbhar Bharat essence
Urging the country's youth to draw inspiration from Team India's historic test cricket victory at Australia's Gabba, clinched with less experienced players, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said India must fight back challenges with the same spirit.
He drew parallels between the country's performance during the coronavirus pandemic and India's less experienced Test cricket team that clinched the series 2-1 and said "our action-reaction instinct has changed".
"The best example is our cricket team which faced so many challenges. We lost badly, (but) we fought back and won under challenging conditions. They (cricket team) had less experience, but were high in confidence and they created history. The cricket success is a huge life lesson. We need to make our mindset positive," PM Modi said while virtually addressing the outgoing students of Tezpur University.
He added that such a mindset was critical for positive outcomes and this was also the essence of Atmanirbhar Bharat, or self-reliant India.
