Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the students appearing for Class 10th and 12th Board exams in his February month’s ‘Mann Ki Baat’ today.
Modi made it clear that he was there to do normal interaction right in the beginning of his message.
Citing his school days he said ‘I was always an ordinary student’.
Modi also cautioned parents against the pressurising children for study in exam time. “Parents shouldn’t compare their children with others” said PM Modi.
Giving a sole mantra to success PM Modi said that ambitions along with commitment is the key to success. “ ‘Iccha’(ambition) plus ‘Sankalp’(commitment) is equal ‘Siddhi’(achievement)” added PM Modi.
“Instead of competing with others, you should compete with yourself, do better, do faster and go to greater heights,” the Prime Minister said and to inspire students he cited the example of former Soviet pole vaulter Sergei Bubka who broke his own world record 35 times.

“Appear for the exams in cool manner.... Have faith in yourself.... Do not get worried about outside reasons because that shows lack of self-confidence and you fall into ‘andh vishwas’.... This is not going to be the end of life.... Life is much bigger than just academic examinations,” he said in a typical counselling session.
