Pariksha pe Charcha
PM Modi

PM Narendra Modi during an interactive session Pariksha pe Charcha with almost 3000 students today urged parents to not to ‘force their dreams’ on their child. Modi, during his address, said, “Every child is different. Try to find out what they are good at. Don’t force your dreams on them. Instead, try to be friends with your children.” Modi, who interacted with students at Talkatora Stadium in New Delhi, addressed students’ exam-related queries ahead of their board examinations.

Speaking further, he said that Indian students are born politicians and they know how to get their work done. He advised the students to not to get into competition with others. He even asked the parents to not to mount unnecessary pressure on their children by comparing them with other children.

As per a leading daily, PM Modi was quoted as saying, “Trying to become someone is a conventional path. Take the road less travelled. Be warriors, not worriers. Treat exams like festivals. A happy mind is the secret of a good mark sheet.”

However, when a student asked the PM about the preparations for his ‘exams’ of Lok Sabha elections in 2019, the latter in a lighter vein said, “I would’ve asked you to take up journalism kyun ki aise lapet ke sawaal journalists hi puchte hain (only journalists ask questions in such a manner).” However, the prime minister said, “I’ve the wishes of 125 crore Indians with me.”
