PM Modi on Yoga:
We all have heard the benefits of each Yoga Aasan (posture)... yes, each has its benefit and there is a science behind it, but when we start Yoga, we must do so with the easiest Aasan, one that comes naturally to us. Don't try to start off by doing something difficult.

We all have heard of IQ (Intelligent Quotient) and EQ (Emotional Quotient). It is essential that we have a healthy balance between IQ and EQ. Emotional bonding is extremely important for the overall development of a human being. Intelligence without an emotional connect will not be able to give the optimum benefit. IQ might guarantee you some success, but it is EQ that  gives your aim, your mission a purpose.

During exams, sleeping is vital but more important is the quality of sleep: PM Narendra Modi
Feb 16, 2018 13:33 (IST)
We must know how to 'defocus', learn how to destress. We should take time out to go out and play, listen to some music, do some art, in order to leave the tensions of our studies behind for a while... We must also connect with nature. Appreciate nature. That at times works as a great stress-buster.

Here's what PM Modi told students:

  1. The first thing we must understand is that we must not question or doubt the intensions of our parents. Parents will always want the best for their children.
  2. That being said, parents who restrict their children from playing and focus only on studies is not the correct way. Everything must be done in a balance. Don't limit your child to something that might have an adverse effect on them.
  3. Parents who impose their own dreams on their children do a big harm to them. Understand what your child is good at, don't plan their lives before time.

PM Before I take the next question, I want to apologise to every single student whose native language is not Hindi. I am sorry that I am not being able to speak in your language. It is my inability that I do not know Tamil or Malayalam or Kannada, or even the dialects of the northeast. I request people to please translate what I am saying for the benefit of all the children tuned in from different parts of the country.
