"We are having a great discussion on why students must appear for exams with a smile, without stress. Self confidence comes by challenging ourselves and working hard. We should always think of bettering ourselves", he said.
To ease out children the Prime Minister urged the students to converse with him as a friend and said, "Forget for a while that you are interacting with the Prime Minister of India, instead you are talking to a friend. Today, I am here as a student, sp let us see how many marks will you give me out of 10".
He further advised students to practice yoga for improving concentration levels.
"Concentration is not something that has to be specifically learnt. Every person does concentrate on something or the other during the day, it may be while reading, hearing a song, talking to a friend. I would say Yoga is a wonderful way to improve one's concentration," Prime Minister Modi answered a question on the importance of concentration during exams and in life.
He also asserted to not compete with others but instead advised students to compete with oneself, while adding that children should keep the student alive within them.
Around 2,000 school and college students attended the programme at Talkatora Stadium. (ANI)
