Ahead of addressing the young students, the PM had urged teachers and parents of the students to share their experiences, so that it would help them to prepare well for the exams.
The HRD Ministry Smriti Irani earlier had issued a circular on the CBSE website urging students and teachers to tune in to AIR at 8 pm on Sunday to listen to PM's 'Mann Ki Baat'.
Highlights of Modi's 'Mann ki Baat':
- We should not waste our energy and capability in competing with others.
- Your future should be better than your today; concentrate on this.
- There are some students who work on new targets each day, with a new vision and new energy. Your determination and thought-process must be stable.
- Don't think of competing with someone else, think about surpassing your own limits with each passing day, set a new record everyday.
- Do you think exams are meant to test your capability? Exam is an opportunity, not a challenge.
- A good batsman is thinking about the ball he is facing not about the match, or series. He is thinking about the present.
- The brighter your future is, the brighter India will be. It is you who will shape India's future
Finally, the prime minister quoted R Kamath and said, "Be warriors. Not worriers." The PM also added, "Every child of this nation must be happy. Give the exam happily, with a smile on your face. I am sure you will do well."
