Narendra Modi Pariksha Pe Charcha Highlights: Students from 24 and Union territories will participate in the event.

Narendra Modi Pariksha Pe Charcha Highlights: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday adviced students not to get bogged down by the pressure of examinations asserting that they are just facing a class examination, and not the litmus test of a lifetime. PM Modi, who has authored ‘Exam Warriors’, asked students to stop running behind marks instead aiming big and learn more. “Open up your life, do not restrict yourself to marks – success will follow you. Our education must equip us to face various challenges of life as well,” PM Modi said during the second edition of ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’ at Talkatora Stadium in New Delhi.

PM Modi began his speech describing the townhall as “mini-India – a place where we have in our midst the future of India”. He also encouraged and warned the students about the use of technology among the students, and tells parents to make it a “dinner table conversation” so that the children do not get addicted to it. On asking about the menace of online gaming, he asks, “Is it PUBG?”

Narendra Modi told the students how to deal with depression, and not fall prey to it. “In a nation like ours, the menace of depression is very worrying. We should talk openly, the more we talk about depression and mental health, it is better. We must always express, never suppress,” he said.

To the parents, he requested them to not impose their unfulfilled dreams and aspirations on the children and to not compare them with other kids, as that might create a negative effect. “Positive attitude of parents’ becomes a huge force in a child’s life,” he said. PM Modi told the students to pick out a career or subject that inspires them and underlined the scope of other subjects other than maths and science.

Students from across the country participated in the event. Apart from students from India, participants from Nigeria, Russia, Nepal, Iran, Kuwait, Qatar, Singapore and Saudi Arabia also took part in the event. As many as 2,000 students, teachers and parents attended it at the venue.

Earlier this month, an online competition was organised to select the participants for the programme. Unlike in 2018 programme, this year only selected participants participated in the event, who won a contest organised through website https://www.MyGov.in.
