New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with the students preparing for the public examination across the country in the program ‘Paritsa Pe Sarcha’. Speaking then, he said, “Our Tamil language is the oldest language in the world. Shouldn’t we be proud of this? This is our country’s greatest asset and honour,” he said with pride.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi holds discussions with students preparing for Class 10th Plus 2 General Examinations across the country on the theme ‘Paritsa Pe Sarcha’ (Exam Clarity) every year to de-stress and give them useful advice. In that regard, the 6th ‘Paritsa Be Charcha’ program was held yesterday at Talkatora Sports Arena, Delhi. Prime Minister Narendra Modi participated in this and answered various questions of the students. A large number of students participated through video from all over the country.
Tamilnadu student first question: A total of 38.80 lakh people participated in this program. A maximum of 10 lakh students from Tamil Nadu participated. To welcome this, the first question was raised from Tamil Nadu. Ashwini, a student of Madurai Kendriya Vidyalaya No-2, posed the first question to the Prime Minister through video. Navtej of Delhi and Priyanka Kumari of Patna raised a similar question. Answering the questions, the Prime Minister said:
If you don’t get the expected marks in public examination, your family will be displeased, how to deal with this?
It is natural for families to expect their children to score high. There is nothing wrong with that. A perfect example of this is a cricket match. The crowd will keep chanting for ‘sixes’ to be hit on the ground. But the cricketer’s attention is not distracted at all. His entire focus is on the ball. He rotates the bat according to the nature of the ball. Similarly, students should also prepare for public examination without any pressure. At the same time, parents should not impose their expectations on their children.
How to practice time management while writing exams?
Time management is very important in life. This also applies to public examination. All students can learn time management from your mother. A mother is active and completes her household chores on time. He never gets tired. He is doing some work even in his spare time. While preparing for the exam we should decide in advance how much time we should spend on which subject and how much time we should spend on each question while writing the exam.
How to prevent malpractices in public examination?
The worst approach is to cheat the invigilator in the exam room and engage in malpractices. Some tuition centers encourage their students to commit mistakes in order to score high marks. Students should never take a wrong path, a short cut. Crossroads may win some exams. But they will fail in life. So, just go in the right direction.
Hard work, smart work–which is better?
You know the story of the crow who cleverly put stones in the pitcher to drink the water from the bottom. Similarly, I want to tell a mechanic story. One traveled in a jeep. The jeep broke down on the way. He struggled hard but could not start the jeep. A mechanic came. He fixed the fault in 2 minutes and asked for Rs.200. The jeep driver said, “200 rupees for 2 minutes of work?” To which the mechanic replied, “50 years of experience allowed us to fix it in 2 minutes. That’s what this fee is for,” he said. So, work hard with intelligence.
How to recover from online games, social media addiction?
I believe students are smarter than smartphones. They know how to use smartphones. However, some people spend 7 hours on their smartphones playing online games and social networking sites. They are addicted to smartphones. Let me give them a piece of advice. One day a week should be a ‘digital fast’ without looking at any electronic device. By gradually increasing this fast, one can recover from addiction.
Can we learn more languages?
There are thousands of languages in India. We can say this with pride. These are associated with our tradition and culture. A language grows and strengthens over thousands of years. Faced with ups and downs, the language overcomes many obstacles and becomes powerful. By learning a new language, you can learn thousands of years of history behind it. Therefore, learning new languages should not be considered as a burden.
The oldest language in the world is spoken in India. You know what? It is our Tamil language. This is the oldest language in the world. There is such a great wealth and honor in our country. Shouldn’t we be proud of this?
UN When I spoke in the assembly, I deliberately spoke a few words in Tamil. I spoke in such a way to highlight that the Tamil language of our country is more ancient than all languages in the world. It is necessary to learn at least a few words in other languages of India apart from our mother tongue. Children are more capable of learning language. Therefore, language learning should be encouraged from childhood. The Prime Minister spoke thus.
Students interested in: About 22,000 people participated in the first ‘Paritsa Bey Charcha’ program held in 2018. This number increased to 58 thousand in 2019, 3 lakh in 2020 and 14 lakh in 2021. 38 lakh 80 thousand people participated this time, an increase of 146 percent compared to those who participated in 2022.
Painting and painting competitions were held for school students across the country to participate in the ‘Paritsa Pe Sarcha’ programme.
In this also maximum 1 lakh students from Tamil Nadu participated. Due to this, it has been reported that Prime Minister Modi’s 7th ‘Paritsa Pe Sarcha’ program is planned to be held in some city of Tamil Nadu next year.
Students asked political question to Prime Minister: During the discussion with the Prime Minister, students from Ahmedabad and Chandigarh raised a politically biased question, “How do you deal with criticism from the opposite side?”
To which the Prime Minister asked with a smile, “You are asking questions from outside the syllabus (out of syllabus), is this correct?” The Prime Minister continued to reply, “The criticism of family and friends should be taken constructively. They advise through criticism for your benefit. At the same time, one should not take into account the criticism of others. Criticism is essential in a democracy. Criticism removes dirt and becomes pure.”
