Mithali Raj and co. to PM Narendra Modi: “How do you handle pressure?”

Indian Women cheerfully greeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi after returning home from England. Mithali Raj-led side came tantalisingly close to winning ICC Women s World Cup 2017, losing out by a mere 9 runs to hosts at The Lord s. A felicitation ceremony was held in New Delhi at PM’s official address 7, Race Course Road, where Indian Eves, along with staff members, met with PM Modi and other high-ranked bureaucrats. In an interaction that was supposed to have lasted for 12 minutes took an hour or so to conclude, as PM Modi laughed and joked with as well as quizzed members of the Indian side.

PM Modi that initiated a conversation with Jhulan Goswami asking her about the tensed look she wore on her face in the final moments of the final. He called the women s team a pride for the nation, as reported by Indian Express.

India s star from the final Punam Raut said, He told us a lot of motivational things. We also had some questions for him. We asked him about how he handles the pressure of ruling the country. He replied that meditation and yoga were a big help. He told us, aap haarne ka dukh mat karo, aapne pura desh ka dil jeet liya hai.

Apart from Punam, skipper Mithali too queried PM Modi about his time management. PM replied, saying yoga and chess are his way of forgoing pressure.

Fresh from 171* in the second semi-final against Australia, Harmanpreet Kaur asked PM about his dressing. Harmanpreet wanted to know whether PM had a special designer. PM replied saying that he has a tailor in Ahmedabad who has been stitching his clothes for years and that his rates have increased from INR 20-25 to a lot lately.

Modi concluded the interaction saying that he will meet the team again after they win the World Cup.
