New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with the students of Class 10 and 12. An interactive session named “Pariksha Par Charcha“, also being dubbed as “Exam Ki Baat” has been organised at Delhi’s Talkatora Stadium. Lakhs of students from across the country participated in this interaction. Last week, the Prime Minister had asked the students to share their thoughts on the upcoming examinations and suggest stress-busting techniques through the Narendra Modi app and the MyGov app.
Here are the live updates of the PM Modi’s “Pariksha Par Charcha” session :
Kushagra from Shillong has a question on the bond between a teacher and student.
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
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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
An Indian child is a born politician: PM Narendra Modi tells students.

Do not compete with others, compete with yourself: PM Narendra Modi to students
PM Modi: People think that concentration is something that must be learnt. In fact, concentration isn’t something that needs learning.
PM Modi: Self-confidence comes by challenging ourselves and working hard. We should always think of bettering ourselves. In addition to the right skills and the means, what a student needs is self-confidence.
I would say Yoga is a wonderful way to improve concentration: PM Narendra Modi at “Pariksha Pe Charcha”
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.
Kanishka from Noida and Pranav Vyas from Varanasi ask PM Modi about the importance of concentration during exams, and in life.
PM Modi: Belief in self and being confident is crucial. One can be well prepared for an exam, but if one doesn’t have the self-confidence, then doubt takes over we cannot succeed. Swami Vivekananda had 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.
Samiksha from Delhi, Sanjana, and Harsh from Pune ask PM Modi about the importance of self confidence and tackling exam stress.
My young friends, always keep the student in you alive: PM Modi
PM Modi before taking the first question: This is not a Narendra Modi program, it is a program dedicated to every student in India. At the end of which, you give me marks out of 10.
A student asks PM Modi how students can cope with exam stress.
PM Modi: You all have exams around the corner, but today you will question me and I will give the exam.
