India's prosperity at the Tokyo Olympic Games reflects New India's longing to rule the world, even in sports, Youth Affairs and Sports Minister, Anurag Thakur, said as he congratulated the medallists who carried shrubs to the country, at a capacity here on Monday. 

The achievement of Team India at the Olympics is an impression of how New India wants and tries to rule the world… even in sports. The Olympic Games showed us that with self-control and commitment we can be champions, Thakur said at a capacity coordinated by the Ministry at the Ashoka Hotel here to observe India's prosperity at the Tokyo Olympics that closed on Sunday. 

Group India dominated and roused while Indians cheered and praised for what it's worth. Genuinely, sports is an extraordinary unifier as our competitors come from towns and urban areas, north to south, from east to west. Their excursion is an unimaginable story of strength and donning greatness, the minister added.
