As part of the second edition of ''Pariksha Pe Charcha 2.0'' Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with a total of 2,000 students, parents and teachers in the national capital today.
With less than two months to go for the Class 10 and Class 12 exams, PM Modi discussed ways to handle the exam stress with students in an interactive session at the Talkatora Stadium, wherein for the first time, students from across the country will get a chance to participate in the event.
The participants also include college students from 24 states and Union Territories, according to a statement of the Union Ministry of Human Resource Development. 675 students from across the country have reached Delhi for the event.
Here are the highlights of PM Modi's session with students:
I would again encourage parents to be a factor of motivation and encouragement for your child. Only when you take it in spirit and encourage your child, does a 60% holder move towards 70 or 80%. If you only criticize and scold your child for not getting 90%, you will demotivate your child to start believing that they are incapable. This will take their grades further down towards 40% (from 60).
Once we have clarity in our thoughts, have faith in our convictions, only after that we can have a true and frank discussion with our parents and teachers. They too must understand you and your strengths and encourage you to do things where you have a good potential.Yes, science and maths are essential but there are other subjects too worth exploring. There are opportunities in so many areas now: PM @narendramodi#ParikshaPeCharcha2- PMO India (@PMOIndia) January 29, 2019
"One thing that is most important for all of us is time management. Time is our own, and we decide what to do with our time and how to get things done. That is totally in your control. We all have the same 24 hours. But those who manage their time well, set themselves apart. You have to prioritize from time to time. Those who master the art of time management, they seem to go through life effortlessly. Time management is most important. If we have 10 things to do, sometimes we need to know which are the 6 or 7 that need priority," PM Narendra Modi
When something challenges you, you must pay attention to what qualities of your came forth during that challenge. Those are the ones you need to work on. When it comes to exams, our focus should never be on marks. It should be on acquiring knowledge and understanding the subject. You will score marks if that is taken care of: PM Modi
I sincerely believe that anything that challenges us, polishes us too. If there is nothing to test us, then we become complacent. There must always be something to challenge us, says PM Modi
While aiming big in life is good, but don't get so carried away by it that your dreams remain dreams, and you become too old just thinking about it: PM
"We must understand ourselves. We must be true to ourselves, questions ourselves frequently to see how we stand periodically as compared to our ambitions and dreams in life. If you see yourself far from it, then you know what to do. You must break your dreams into phases and give it a time frame to achieve. You must cross one milestone at a time. Climb from a smaller peak to a larger one," the Prime Minister added.
Is he a PUBG gamer? I will not say exposure to technology is a bad thing for students. It is good that students are getting acquainted with new technology. Technology should lead to expansion of the mind and as a means to innovate: PM
I hope parents do not make the report card of their children their own visiting cards...because if that is the aim then the expectations from children become unreal: PM @narendramodi#ParikshaPeCharcha2- PMO India (@PMOIndia) January 29, 2019
