Pariksha Pe Charcha 2020 HIGHLIGHTS: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is having a ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’ with 2,000 students and teachers from across the country. Ahead of the event, being held at the Talkatora Stadium in New Delhi, PM Modi said he enjoyed ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’ the most among all his programmes.
Encouraging students to have a frank conversation, PM Modi said, “I thought I should share the burden your parents have to bear. Today’s fashion is ‘#withoutfilter’. Just like you speak to your friends, we will talk today.”
During the interaction, he mentioned the failure of Chandrayaan-2. While the prime minister said he was disheartened the moon mission was not entirely successful, he told the students to remember that “every failure is a step towards success.” Good marks in exams are not everything, he told the students in the interaction. “We have to come out of the thinking that exams are everything,” the prime minister said. He also encouraged students to pursue extra-curricular activities but strike a balance.
