The thought of examinations usually leave students under stress. Not only students, the preassure of scoring good marks also takes a toll on parents and teachers.

"This book is for all students who are appearing for examinations. They are the 'Exam warriors' - brave youngsters taking part in the festival of exams. The book drives home the important point that when it comes to examinations, there is no need to worry excessively or view it as a life-and-death situation," PM Modi is quoted in the book titled Exam Warriors.

'Exam warriors' is also available in a digital format through the Narendra Modi Mobile App.

Each chapter has an activity at the end. For example - a chapter called "Discover Yourself" that aims to encourage students to experience all that life has to offer to choose a career path, has an activity that urges them to describe their experiences and suggest volunteering organisations.

'Exam warriors' is also available in a digital format through the Narendra Modi Mobile App. There is also an exam warrior community page that will enable students to share his achievements with friends, family and students.

The book launch by Union Ministers Sushma Swaraj and Prakash Javadekar also has lighter moments. While reading out excerpts from the book, Ms Swaraj on more than one occasion ended up reading the word "examination" as "election". Not just the audience, but the External Affairs Minister herself shook her head in disbelief and laughed out saying, "Oh, I meant examination, not election". She also emphasised that student should not stress and must present their work neatly,

"Chill maro, exams are like festivals," she said.
