Key lessons from Pariksha Pe Charcha 2024: ‘Compete with yourself, not others’, says PM Modi.

On Monday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended the seventh edition of ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’ at Delhi’s Bharat Mandapam, asking parents not to use their child’s report card as a visiting card. He advised that pupils compete with themselves rather than others.

The Prime Minister also viewed an exhibition at the Bharat Mandapam and spoke with students who demonstrated their technological ideas today.

“This program is also like a test for me. Pressure should not be so high that it impairs one’s ability. PM Modi said during the 7th edition of Pariksha Pe Charcha that we should not go to extremes, but rather build any process gradually.

Dharmendra Pradhan, the Union Education Minister, was also present at the event. “I greet Prime Minister Modi. We must make India a developed country by 2047, and this would be accomplished under your (PM Modi) leadership…Today, ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’ has grown into a massive movement…”

Key takeaways from PM Modi’s address: 1) “The ‘running commentary’ from parents, teachers or relatives drawing negative comparisons is detrimental to a student’s mental well-being.” It causes more harm than good. We must address the issue by proper and heartfelt conversations with kids, rather than lowering their morale and confidence through unfair comparisons and discussions.”

2) “The interaction between teachers and students should be such that students perceive something other than the’subject-related bond’. This friendship should go deeper! This relationship should allow students to freely communicate their difficulties, problems, and insecurities with their teachers.”

3) “Just like a mobile phone requires charging to function, it is critical to keep the body recharged in order to maintain a healthy mind. It is also critical to get enough sleep.”

4) The more you practice, the more confident you will get. Regardless of how deep the water is, the person who knows how to swim will make it through. Similarly, no matter how difficult the question paper is, if you have practised thoroughly, you will perform well. Stop paying attention to what people are doing around you. Keep your focus on yourself! “What YOU are, what YOU do, and what YOU practice will determine your future.”

5) “Children may put pressure on themselves because they aren’t achieving well enough. I recommend that you set little goals during preparation and steadily increase your performance; this way, you will be fully prepared for the tests.

6) “Confusion, in any form, is bad. Indecision is far worse! We must be perceptive enough to analyze facts thoroughly, and decisive enough to clear our minds of any uncertainty.”


7) “Excess of anything, including mobility, is bad for everyone. There should be a standard for everything; it has a foundation. It is critical to have judgment in determining how much of anything should be utilized. We should not avoid technology, but rather use it positively.”

8) “I urge all parents to never sow the seeds of competition among their children, but be an inspiration to each other.”
