Pariksha par Charcha...PM Narendra Modi Interacting With Students 2018

Prime Minister Narendra Modi conducted an interactive session, "Pariksha Par Charcha", also being dubbed as "Exam Ki Baat" with thousands of students at Delhi's Talkatora Stadium on Friday. Students, who also connected with him through pre-recorded videos, asked exam-related queries from the Prime Minister. Before he took questions from the students, he said, "You are not talking to the Prime Minister of India, you are talking to a friend.". "Pariksha Par Charcha" comes two weeks after the Prime Minister launched his book titled 'Exam Warriors' that contains 25 mantras to help students face examinations without stress. The interaction is aimed at bringing to the fore a discourse about the importance of stress-free examinations. Prime Minister Narendra Modi while answering a question on how to handle the stress some students undergo even after preparation 'Every Child In India Is Born Politician': PM Modi On 'Pariksha Par Charcha' Pariksh Par Charcha: PM Modi will hold "Exam Ki Baat" with lakhs students from across the country and address their examination-related concerns today at Talkatora Stadium in the national capital Prime Minister Narendra Modi had wooed voters in 2014 with his Chai Pe Charcha campaign. And now he has shifted his gaze to students who are about to sit for their annual examination. As part of his Pariksha Par Charcha, an extension of his pet charcha theme, PM Modi interacted with thousands of students from across the country and addressed their examination-related concerns today at Talkatora Stadium in the national capital and complimented them for being "born politicians". Before he took questions from the students, he said "it was his exam today", and thanked his teachers for whom he is "still a student". "They inspired me to keep the student alive in me," PM Modi said. When asked about how to maintain self-confidence, he said, "Self-confidence is very important. It's not a pill or herb. There is no tablet that can be consumed for instant confidence. We have to build it every day." PM Modi recalled when he was student, he read Swami Vivekananda's writings who said that you may have the blessings of all the gods and goddesses, but if you don't believe in yourself, then all those blessings are futile. He asked the students not to compete with others, and advised parents not to put unnecessary pressure on their wards by comparing them with other children. "Every child is different. Try to find out what they are good at and don't force your dreams on them. Try to be friends with your children," he said. As far as children of India are concerned, he said, they are "born politicians". "They know how to get their work done." He spoke about the importance of a healthy balance between IQ (intelligence quotient) and EQ (emotional quotient). "Emotional bonding is essential for your overall development. It helps in forging relationships. Intelligence without an emotional connect is worthless. IQ might help you achieve success, but EQ gives you a purpose in life," he added. Learn to "defocus" before you can focus, was another suggestion by PM Modi. "Let yourself loose, do what want to do. It will help you focus." The interactive session, also being dubbed as "Exam Ki Baat", was organised days after the prime minister launched his book "Exam Warriors", which is a collection of anecdotes from his growing up years and lists mantras to help students to stay calm before the examination.
