Prime Minister Narendra Modi's live interaction with students, Pariksha Pe Charcha, has begun. The event is being organized at Talkatora Indoor Stadium in Delhi where a total of 2,000 students and teachers are present. Reaching out to students in their own language, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said his conversations with them will be "#withoutfilter".
“We'll talk like friends and mistakes can happen. And, in my case, if I make a mistake the friends in the media will love it too..." he said, grinning at the audience.
He cited Chandrayaan in his speech and said students should not be afraid of failure and take it as a part of life.
"Was told I shouldn't attend Chandrayaan landing as there was no guarantee of success but I needed to be there," he said. Good marks in exams are not everything, he told the students in the interaction. "We have to come out of the thinking that exams are everything," the PM said.
The interactive session is available to students, teachers and parents nationwide through YouTube and social media platforms.
