'Exam Warriors’: Modi pens book for students, lists mantras on how to 'compete with self'
With stressful days round the corner for students appearing for board exams, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has penned a book detailing '25 mantras' to help students treat examinations as a cause for celebration and not despair.
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and HRD minister Prakash Javadekar released the compact handy book 'Exam Warriors' - a book written by Prime Minister Narendra Modi - on Saturday.
The book consists of 193 pages and gives students 25 mantras in the form of illustrations and activities to overcome exam stress.
The 193-page book, published by Penguin, has been presented in an interactive mode with activities, tearaways as well as a pledge not to cheat.
The mantras ask students to celebrate exams. "Exams are like festivals, celebrate them".
Union human resource development minister Prakash Javadekar said the "book will find space in each household as it connects with millions of students, teachers, parents and grandparents in a non-political way".
The book also asks youngsters to discover themselves by stepping out of their comfort zone, getting involved in community service and travelling across India.
