New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday advised the students who would appear for Class X and XII board exams to be happy about the exams and said, “become a warrior not a worrier”.
“Most of the young friends will have exams. All of you remember – You have to become a warrior not a worrier, go gleefully for the examination and come back with a smile. You have to compete with yourself, not with anyone else,” Modi said during his monthly radio programme Mann Ki Baat.
The prime minister also advised the students to get adequate sleep and to not stop playing. “For those who play are the ones that blossom,” he said.
PM Modi noted how the ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’ discussion will be organised again like every year.
“You can share on MyGov platform and Narendra Modi app. This time, along with the youth, parents and teachers are also invited to ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’. You will get all the information on MyGov — how to participate, how to win prizes, how to get an opportunity to discuss with me,” the prime minister said.
PM Modi mentioned that more than one lakh students, about 40,000 parents, and about 10,000 teachers have taken part in the discussion.
“You too participate today itself. In the times of corona, I took out some time, added many new mantras in the exam warrior book; some for the parents as well. A lot of interesting activities related to these mantras are given on the Narendra Modi app which will help to ignite the exam warrior in you. Do try them. Best wishes to all my young friends for the upcoming exams,” he said.
The Prime Minister’s message came just ahead of the CBSE class X and XII board exams, which are scheduled to be held from May 4 to June 10.
