Pariksha pe charcha, closest to my heart: PM

 This programme touches my heart the most, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said while interacting with the students on Monday during the third edition of 'Pariksha Pe Charcha 2020' programme in Delhi's Talkatora Stadium. During the programme, Prime Minister Modi answered the questions and interacted with select students about how they can beat examination stress. "As a Prime Minister, I get to attend many types of programmes. Each of the programme provides a new experience. But, if someone asks me what is that one programme that touches your heart the most, I will say it is this one," he said while interacting with the students. Around 2,000 students are participated from all over India in the programme. Assuring students of his complete focus, Modi said they could speak to him openly. "Speak to me hashtag without filter," he said. Modi said everyone should keep abreast of the latest technology but it should not be allowed to govern lives.

"We should have the strength to keep technology under our control and ensure it does not waste our time. One room in our homes should be technology free. Whoever enters will not carry any gadgets," he told students while stressing that exams are not everything. Good marks in exams are not everything, he told the students in the interaction. "We have to come out of the thinking that exams are everything," the prime minister said. The Prime Minister also stressed on the importance of extra curricular activities for the students. "If you're not doing any extra activity, you'll turn into a robot. Do we want our youth to turn into robots? No! They are full of energy and dreams!" he said. The Prime Minister underlined the importance of the coming decade, saying that the students studying in Class X and XII will play an important role in shaping the coming decade. "This new year and decade are equally important for you and the entire country," he said. The Prime Minister also spoke about Hackathons, the importance of managing mental pressure during exams, and the role of parents. "I love attending Hackathons also. They showcase the power and talent of the youth of India. Thousands of schools from the entire country participate in this and I feel how the youth of the country think and what they want to do," he said. Before addressing the students, PM Modi walked through an exhibition of beautiful artwork by students in the national capital and interacted with some of the students. "Eagerly awaiting today's #ParikshaPeCharcha2020! It is always a delight to connect with India's youth. Their energy and vibrancy are unparalleled. Today we would talk about numerous subjects relating to exams and even life beyond exams," the Prime Minister tweeted earlier.

"The HRD Ministry in partnership with MyGov launched a 'short essay' competition on five different themes for students of classes 9 to 12 for the programme," a government press release said. The first edition of Prime Minister's Interaction Programme with school and college students 'Pariksha Pe Charcha 1.0' was held at Talkatora Stadium on February 16, 2018.
