Mann Ki Baat: PM Modi gives success mantra to students
New Delhi: Reaching out to the students who are preparing themselves for board exams, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, addressing the 28th edition of Mann Ki Baat, on Sunday said it is for students to decide whether exam is a pressure or pleasure and advised them to take exams as a festival.
Giving students the success mantra, PM Modi said, "Competing with others can make you unhappy and jealous. Compete with yourself and you will be energised and more determined to excel."
"I congratulate all those who have won Gallantry awards. I appeal to youth to search more about Gallantry award winners on internet and write about them," said PM Modi.
Expressing the condolence to the brave jawans who lost their lives in avalanche, PM Modi said India will observe a two minute silence in honor of martyrs on January 30, which is observed as martyrs day or Mahatma Gandhi's death anniversary.
PM Modi's message to the board exam aspirants:
- Behind every problem there are expectations, it is acceptance that makes things easy
- Sachin Tendulkar is one inspiration who kept challenging himself and bettered his own records.
- Only studying for marks will lead to shortcuts and one will limit himself or herself. It is important to study for knowledge.
- I urge parents to accept rather than expect. Our expectations from our children should not get heavy.
- Parents' expectations are much heavier than the school bags of students.
- Cheating is never beneficial, no one must resort to it. If you do it what will you tell your children?
- Take small breaks, return to books feeling fresh and try deep breathing, it is very relaxing
- P for prepare and P for play, the person who plays, shines
- Deep breathing is beneficial during exams, it will keep you feeling fresh. Proper sleep will increase your concentration
- Be confident, do well. My best wishes are with you. Make the best of it
