Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday equated the historic win of the Indian cricket team against Australia to a "life lesson" and praised players' approach to fight in challenging conditions. He added that today's India is not afraid of working on experiments for solving problems.
Addressing the 18th Convocation of Tezpur University, PM Modi said that people should not be afraid of taking risks and doing experiments.
"The Indian team in Australia is a great example of the change in approach. Even after losing the first test, they continued fighting. Even after suffering injuries, our players kept fighting for wins and kept looking for new solutions. In challenging conditions, they stood up to challenge. Some players may have been less experienced, but their bravery was no less. They created history with the right talent and temperament. They defeated such an experienced team like Australia. This performance of our players is a life lesson," he said.
