New Delhi:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is interacting with a group of students, teachers, and parents about various aspects of the examinations during the third edition of ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha.’ The interaction programme with students is being organised at Talkatora Indoor Stadium in Delhi. A total of 2,000 students and teachers are expected to attend the event. Out of 2,000 1,050 students with whom PM Modi will interact have been selected through an essay competition.

Assuring students of his complete focus, PM Modi said they could speak to him openly. "Speak to me hashtag without filter," he said. The PM said everyone should keep abreast of the latest technology but it should not be allowed to govern lives.

"We should have the strength to keep technology under our control and ensure it does not waste our time. One room in our homes should be technology free. Whoever enters will not carry any gadgets," he told students while stressing that exams are not everything.

The prime minister also urged students to spend their spare time with the elderly. He also said students should not be afraid of failure and take it as a part of life.

Here are the highlights: 

The way ahead lies in pursuing, not pressurising children. Inspire children to do things that bring out their inner potential: PM Modi

Have you ever thought where will you be in 2047, at the completion of 100 years of India's independence? You'd be leading someone, somewhere in life. If you get a broken and dilapidated country when you become a leader, would you able to lead well?: PM Modi

There's a fine connection between our rights and responsibilities. Our rights are directly dependent on the responsibilities performed by others. If a teacher performs his responsibility in the right way, the students' right to learn is secure: PM Modi

Arunachal Pradesh is the only state in India in which people greet each other with 'Jai Hind' whenever they meet each other. This is rare. I want all of you to go to the North East on vacation if you can. Our country is amazing. It must be experienced: PM Modi

Every day, there must be some time that you keep yourself away from technology. There must be a technology-free hour every day. Spend that time with friends, family, books, garden or pets: PM Modi

These extra-activities have become a fashion statement these days for parents. Parents think that glamour-driven extra-activity will help their child. It is the parents' responsibility to pick the child's interests and take him/her to that activity: PM Modi

If you're not doing any extra activity, you'll turn into a robot. Do we want our youth to turn into robots?

What is not good is when the passion of the children becomes fashion statements for parents. Extra-curricular activities needn’t be glamour driven. Let each child pursue what he or she likes.

Not pursuing an co-curricular activities can make a person like a robot. Yes, this would require better time management. Today opportunities are many and I hope youngsters make use of them: PM Modi

Do some extracurricular activities to refresh yourself: PM Modi

Life is not just about marks. A single exam cannot define complete life. This is an important step. But we should not assume that exams are everything: PM Modi

I could not sit in peace. I summoned the PMO team and changed the schedule. I met the scientists early morning the next day. I shared my emotions with them and lauded their efforts. Basically, we can find an education about success in failures: PM Modi 

I said I should go even more due to that. I could see a change on the faces of the scientists in the dying seconds. They came and informed me later. After about 10 mins, they told me it was not happening. I told them not to worry and then left: PM Modi 

For example, Chandrayaan II. The entire country felt demotivated at its failure. At times, failure weakens us. I was present there as well. Some people had asked me not to go there because there was no surety: PM 

Your mood depends on the way of your thinking: PM Modi

Whatever country will do in this decade, this year's class 10, 12 students will contribute most: PM

Let this discussion also be free, light-hearted and interesting. We may even make mistakes. And, in my case, if I make a mistake the friends in the media will love it too: PM Modi

This is not just a new year but also a new decade and this decade is as important for India as it is for you: PM Modi tells students during'Pariksha Pe Charcha.'

But, if someone asks me what is that one programme that touches your heart the most, I would say it is this one, says the prime minister.

As Prime Minister one gets to attend numerous types of programme. Each of them provides a new set of experiences: PM Modi
