Don’t let your setbacks dampen your spirit: Modi

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday asked youth to use technology to bring about the changes that the country needs and urged them not to let their setbacks dampen their spirits.

“Technology has made things so much simpler. Technology and innovation are powering so many changes. Things like floppies, tape recorders and the walkman are history. Artificial intelligence, 3D technology…see how the world is undergoing changes. This is an era of ‘Internet of Things’,” he said in his address at the Smart India Hackathon 2017.

Encouraging the youth to fulfill their dreams, the Prime Minister said that while innovating new ideas, they may face setbacks but they don’t need to lower their morale.

“When you are innovating, you may face setbacks but do not let those setbacks dampen your spirits,” he said.

Modi also cautioned them not to compromise with quality.

“When you are innovating, remember that quality is key. Good quality products will bring changes in the lives of many people,” he said.

“Youth of India wants to find solutions to the nation’s problems. They want results that are quick and credible,” Modi added.
