Narendra Modi: What he said, really meant and definitely didn’t

Narendra Modi

What he said:

“When our cricketers win a tournament, the entire country celebrates. What the scientists have achieved today, is much greater than that.”

Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, makes a pointed reference to the skewed priorities of the Indian public when it comes to celebrating the country’s achievements.

The occasion was India becoming the first country  to send a space craft into Mars’ orbit on its maiden attempt.

What he really meant:

“We need heroes from all spheres and professions—not merely sports and films.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“Now that’s what I’d  term bowling a maiden over!”
