Despite PM Modi's words of motivation, ISRO chief K Sivan broke down and could not hold back his tears. Modi also appeared emotional; he hugged and consoled him after his address to the scientists and nation. He also encouraged all scientists present there, asking them to look ahead and not lose heart.
