India’s Honorable Prime Minister, Narendra Modi is currently on a three-nation tour wherein he’s in the final leg of his journey.

He reached Australia on Monday and was greeted by a huge Indian diaspora there along with his counterpart, Anthony Albanese.

Yesterday, Modi spoke about India’s and Australia’s strong ties through food, yoga, and cricket.

Additionally, he has also spoken about Australian women cricketers’ participation in the Women’s Premier League.

Addressing a community gathering, Modi stated that cricket relations between India and Australia run deep both on and off the field.

Said Modi,

Our cricket relations have completed 75 years. As interesting as the competition on the cricket field is, the friendship runs deeper off the field. This time, many Australian women players also came for the first time in the country to play IPL (Women’s Premier League).

Moreover, he gave this speech at Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena and continued to count the ways in which India and Australia are linked to each other.

Modi also talks about India-Australia ties through Yoga and MasterChef

Meanwhile, Modi continued to talk about India and Australia’s relations through yoga and even MasterChef.

His speech has certainly impressed the Indian diaspora as they are now talking about it repeatedly.

Moreover, they have thoroughly enjoyed Modi’s speech as well.

Adding further, Modi said,

Our lifestyles may be different, but now yoga also connects us. We have been connected due to cricket for long. But now tennis and films are also connecting us. We might prepare food in different manners, but MasterChef is connecting us now.

Before arriving in Australia, he went to Papua New Guinea to hold talks with their PM as well.

With his speech, Modi hopes that these ties continue to remain strong between the two countries for a long time to come.
