Our prime minister, Mr. Narendra Modi, is doing quite a few things differently and quite a few different things. One example is the Mann Ki Baat session on All India Radio. He connects with the audience in these sessions and shares his thoughts. He asks them questions and gives them great advice from his experiences. In the previous Mann Ki Baat session, he had some wise words for students seeing the fact that board exams and competitive exams are just around the corner. He dedicated the entire session to students and parents, and gave them insightful tips and guidelines.
Let’s take a look at some of the takeaways from this session:
- His first advice was for parents and teachers. He advised them to talk to kids about dreaming big. If you talk to kids you should talk to them about big dreams and flying high, he said. When you encourage kids to do that, they will automatically start dreaming big and following their dreams. The change will be immediate.
- You are your biggest competition. Compete with yourself. Compete with yourself to do better, to be fast, and to do more. Compete with yourself to reach new heights each time.
- Desire to do well along with stability will increase your will power to do better. Your will power along with your purpose will lead you to success.
- Be a light unto yourself, said Lord Buddha. Follow his advice and identify the light within you. The person who gives himself new challenges and lives up to them will definitely find success because he will realize that he can do well and reach great heights.
- If you want to win, you must live in the present and for the present. This is the only way.
- Exams are for helping you identify your skills and not to display them.
- He also talks about taking things humorously and saying that it would be a good idea for teachers to celebrate an “exam week” every term, which would have a humorous take on exams.
- The country’s future is in the hands of the youth. Regardless of it being a boy or a girl, every child will walk hand-in-hand towards a brighter future.
With these points and some humor, the prime minister encouraged students to stay relaxed and sit for their respective exams with positivity.
