New Delhi, Jan 22: In a bid to inspire the young minds, Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his online address during the convocation ceremony of Tezpur University in Assam had asked the passed outs to be inspired of the country’s historic victory during th test cricket match with Australia.

A second-string Indian team, led by Ajinkya Rahane, braved all odds to defeat a full-strength Australia by three wickets at the Gabba to win the four-Test series 2-1 and retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy on Tuesday in Brisbane.

Modi said the young minds in India has found a new way to face and tackle challenges and problems.

“The most recent example of it was witnessed in the cricket field when the Indian team despite loss and hardships, overcame them and won in the next matches,” said Modi while addressing the 18th convocation of Tezpur University.

“Despite being injured, our players persevered on the field to save the match. Notwithstanding challenging conditions, they didn’t despair and faced them. Some players had less experience but their determination was not and they created history,” he added.

Modi, lauding the second-string India Test Team, said it had both talent and temperament to take on the experienced Australian team with senior players and defeat them.

“This performance by our players also teaches us big life lessons. One is to have belief in our abilities, second is to have a positive mindset. If we have a positive mindset, the outcome will also be successful,” said Modi.

“The third and most important lesson is even if there is the faintest chance of victory ehile facing a challange, one should pursue instead of leaving. Because, even if you fail in the attempt, there is no loss. We should never be afraid of taking risks and experimenting. We have to be proactive and fearless to overcome the fear of failure,” he added.

Modi, then took this example on telling the students on how the government had handled the COVID-19 crisis that infected about 1.06 crore people and took 1.53 lakh lives.

“At the beginning of this pandemic, concerns were expressed on how India, with such a large population, could be devastated by Covid-19. But India showed the world that if you have resolve and resilience, it doesn’t take long to create resources,” he said.

“Instead of compromising with the situation and waiting for the problem to increase, we took quick and proactive steps. As a result, we were able to face and fight the virus effectively. We limited the spread of the disease with made-in-India solutions and improved our health infrastructure. Now our vaccines are giving many countries the assurance of a safety shield,” added Modi.

The PM praised the innovation hub of Tezpur University and initiatives like the simple and cheap way of purifying water by the department of chemical science, which is benefiting many villages across Assam and in several other states.
