Your indomitable spirit and willpower are praiseworthy in light of the insurmountable odds that the para-athletes have overcome in their lives," said PM Modi during his interaction with the para-athletes.

"The whole contingent along with the support deserves credit for enhancing India's reputation in Japan with their performances. When you play for India, you are India's ambassadors and they see the country through you," the Prime Minister added.

He also urged the athletes to take defeat in the stride and set an example for the society to follow. "A true sportsperson does not get bogged down by defeat or victory, and keeps moving forward."
