Reaching out to students across the country through the third edition of the "Pariksha Pe Charcha" programme at the Talkatora Stadium here, the prime minister also told them not to get demotivated by temporary setbacks.

Answering burden of expectations Modi said,''The way ahead lies in pursuing, not pressurising children. Inspire children to do things that bring out their inner potential. Every parent/teacher must think about how they behaved with the children when they were about 4-5 years old. You didn't pressurize them, you just motivated them. Did you slap them for trying to walk? No. I want parents to accept that their children have grown up, but they must understand that their psyche to help them must never change or go away. Parents who allow their children to pursue things (if they are on the right track) are doing right thing.''
