Spirit is the annual sports festival of IIT Guwahati. This year 2017, Australian cricket legend and fast bowler Brett Lee was invited as chief guest for the inauguration of SPIRIT and the students seemed more than excited.
As the global hearing ambassador, Brett Lee had an interactive session with the students and spread awareness about hearing loss. Therefore a session was also conducted where students from IIT Mumbai who suffered hearing loss gave presentation on how they were aided by Cochlear, an Australian hearing device company.
Brett Lee also talked about life, health and success. He is also running ‘sounds of cricket’ campaign to raise awareness about hearing loss all over the world.
Brett Lee also took a selfie with more than 1500 students, present in the auditorium.
