Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked students not to get stressed as they have successfully cracked exams in the past, and urged parents and teachers not to impose their unfulfilled dreams and aspirations on children.
Interacting with students appearing for board examinations in the fifth edition of ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’, Modi said technology is not a curse and should be used effectively as he interacted with teachers as well as on many issues. Took questions too. He said that students can use the ‘online’ medium to acquire knowledge and apply it offline. He advised the students to celebrate the exams as festivals and without any stress. He said, “You are not taking the exam for the first time. In a way, you are exam-proof. Thus, don’t get stressed. Remember that you have successfully cracked the exams earlier.”
PM Modi told the audience at Talkatora Stadium, “This is my favorite programme, but due to Kovid I could not meet you. It gives me special happiness because I am meeting you after a long time.”
Responding to a question, he also said that the National Education Policy announced by his government has been wholeheartedly welcomed by every section of the country, and said that the consultation process for this was exhaustive. Stating that the old ideas and policies of the 20th century cannot guide India’s growth path in the 21st century, he said that change should come with time. Kenny Patel from Vadodara, Gujarat asked how one can complete the syllabus along with proper revision and also take proper sleep.
“Why are you scared? This is not the first time you are taking the exam. Now you are reaching the last mile. You have crossed the whole sea, why are you afraid of drowning on the shore?” PM replied. Pariksha Pe Charcha is being organized by the Department of School Education and Literacy, Ministry of Education for the last four years. The first three editions of the PPC were held in Delhi in an interactive town-hall format. The fourth edition was conducted online on 7th April last year.
