In the 4th edition of Pariksha Pe Charcha, the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi interacted with students, teachers and parents in virtual mode today. The interaction, which lasted more than ninety minutes, saw students, teachers and parents seeking guidance on various issues of importance to them from the Prime Minister. This year too, students from across the country, and also Indian students residing abroad, participated in the event.

Terming this year’s interaction as first virtual edition of Pariksha Pe Charcha, the Prime Minister said that Corona has led to many innovations and despite the disappointment of not being able to be among the students face to face, there should not be a break in Pariksha Pe Charcha this year. He said that Pariksha Pe Charcha is not only a discussion on examination but also an occasion to talk, among family members and friends, in a relaxed atmosphere and create new confidence.

 

Students M Pallavi from Andhra Pradesh and Arpan Pandey from Kuala Lumpur asked the Prime Minister about how to reduce fear of examination. Shri Modi said that the fear is mainly due to the atmosphere that has made examination be all and end all of life, which makes students over conscious. The Prime Minister said that the life is very long and these are just a stage of life. He advised parents, teachers and peers not put pressure on students. He said exams should be treated as merely a good occasion to test oneself and should not be turned into a question of life and death. He said that parents who are involved with their children know their strength and weaknesses.

With regard to the difficult chapters and subjects, the Prime Minister advised to take every subject with same attitude and energy of the student should be divided equally among the students. The Prime Minister said that with regard to studies his view is that difficult parts should not be avoided but should be tackled with fresh mind. He said in his work as the Prime Minister and Chief Minister earlier, he preferred to tackle difficult issues in the morning with fresh mind. He also said that it is not important to be master of all the subjects even those people are highly successful who have a firm grasp over one specific subject. He gave example of Lata Mangeshkar who has given her entire life to single minded pursuit of music. Finding a subject difficult is not a limitation and one should not run away from difficult subjects, The Prime Minister added.

The Prime Minister dwelled at length on the importance of free time. He said free time should be valued as without it life will be like a robot. One values free time more when it is earned. More importantly, cautioned the Prime Minister that we should be careful about avoiding things during the free time that have the danger of eating away all the time. These things will leave you exhausted instead of refreshed. Free time is the best opportunity to learn new skills. Free time should be used in the activities which bring out the uniqueness of an individual, he said.

 

The Prime Minister told teachers and Parents that children are very smart. They observe and follow the actions of their elders more than the verbal directions of the elders. Therefore, it is important that our world-view, preaching should be borne out by our behaviour. Elders should try to inspire by living their ideals.

 

The Prime Minister emphasized the need of positive reinforcement and cautioned against negative motivation by scaring the child. He also pointed out that with the active efforts of the elders, children find the light within as they observe the exemplary behaviour of the elders. He said “positive motivation augers well for growth and development of youngsters.” First Part of the motivation is training and a trained mind precedes motivation, he said.

 

Shri Modi advised the students that they should have resolution to achieve their dreams. They should not be disappointed by the glamour of celebrity culture. He said that fast changing world brings many opportunities and there is a need to expand scope of curiosity to grasp those opportunities. He said that in class 10th and 12th, students should start observing the life around them for the nature of jobs and new changes and start training and skilling themselves for them. He emphasized the need for zeroing in to a resolution which a student wants to make the key resolution of his or her life. Once that happens path will be clear, said Shri Modi.

 

The Prime Minister also explained the need for health food and called for recognizing the benefits and taste of traditional food.

On the issue of difficulty in remembering things, the Prime Minister gave the formula of ‘involve, internalize, associate and visualize’ as a pathway to sharp memory. He said things that are internalized and become part of the thought flow are never forgotten. One should internalize instead of memorize.

The Prime Minister asked the students to take exam with relaxed frame of mind. “All your tension must be left outside the examination hall”, said Shri Modi. He advised the student to focus on giving the answers in best possible way without getting tensed about the preparation and other worries.

 

On the pandemic, the Prime Minister said “Coronavirus forced social distancing, but it has also strengthened emotional bonding in families.” He said if we have lost a lot during the pandemic, we also have gained a lot in the form of appreciation of things and relationships in life. We realized the importance of not taking anything or anyone for granted. Corona period told us the value of family and its role in shaping the lives of children.

 

The Prime Minister said the if elders show interest in the issues of the child and his generation, the generation gap will evaporate. In order to communicate and understand each other, there is a need for openness between elders and children. Children should be approached with open mind and we must be willing to change after engaging with them.

The Prime Minister insisted that “what you study cannot be the only measure of success and failure in your life. Whatever you do in life, they will determine your success and failure.” Therefore, children should come out of the pressure of people, parents and society.

 

The Prime Minister also exhorted students to contribute to ‘Vocal for Local’ campaign. He said the he wants the student to pass this test with cent percent marks and make India Aatmnirbhar. The Prime Minister also asked the students to get involved in Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav by collecting information about the events of Independence Struggle and write about them.

Krishnaguru Eknaam Akhanda Kirtan for World Peace is a month-long kirtan being held from 6th January at Krishnaguru Sevashram.

Addressing the gathering, the Prime Minister said that Krishnaguru Eknaam Akhanda Kirtan has been going on for a month. He underlined that the traditions of knowledge, service and humanity in ancient India which were propagated by Krishna Guru ji are in perpetual motion even today. The Prime Minister observed that the divinity of the contributions of Guru Krishna Premanand Prabhu Ji and the efforts of his disciples are clearly visible on this magnificent occasion. Expressing his desire to join the august gathering in person today as well as on previous occasions, the Prime Minister sought the blessings of Krishna Guru so he gets the opportunity to visit the sevashram in the near future.

Referring to the tradition of Akhand Eknaam Jap every twelve years by Krishnaguru ji, the Prime Minister noted the Indian tradition of organizing spiritual events with duty as the key thought. “These events rekindle a sense of duty in the individual and society. People used to gather to discuss and analyze the happenings of the last twelve years, evaluate the present and create a blueprint for the future”, the Prime Minister said. The Prime Minister gave examples of Kumbh, Pushkaram Celebration in the Brahmaputra River, Mahamaham at Kumbakonam in Tamil Nadu, Mahamastakabhisheka of Bhagwan Bahubali, blooming of Neelakurinji flower as key events that take place once in twelve years.  Eknaam Akhanda Kirtan is laying down a similarly powerful tradition and making the world familiar with the heritage and spiritual consciousness of the Northeast, he added.  

The Prime Minister underlined that the exceptional talent, spiritual realizations and extraordinary incidents related to the life of Krishnaguru act as a source of inspiration for each one of us. Dwelling on his teachings, the Prime Minister noted that no work or person is big or small. Similarly, the Prime Minister said that the nation has worked towards the betterment of its people with the same spirit of taking everyone along (Sabka Saath) for everyone’s development (Sabka Vikas) with absolute dedication. Underlining that the nation gives top priority to those who have been so far deprived and neglected, the Prime Minister said, “Priority to the deprived” Giving examples of the state of Assam and the Northeast, the Prime Minister observed that these regions have been neglected for decades when it comes to development and connectivity, but they are being given top priority today.  

Referring to this year’s Budget the Prime Minister underlined the same priority to the deprived as the key guiding sentiment. Noting the key role of tourism in the economy of Northeast, the Prime Minister mentioned this year’s Budget provision of developing and upgrading 50 tourist destinations which will benefit the region a great deal. The Prime Minister also talked about the Ganga Vilas Cruise which will soon reach Assam. He highlighted that Indian heritage’s most valuable treasures are situated on the river banks.  

The Prime Minister also mentioned Krishnaguru Sewashram’s work for artisans in traditional skills and informed the country has done historical work in developing the traditional skills and linking the artisans with the global markets in the last few years. He also informed about changing laws about bamboo and changing its category from tree to grass, which opened the avenues of bamboo business. He said that ‘Unity Malls’, proposed in the Budget, will help farmers, artisans and youth of Assam by showcasing their products. These products will be showcased in the Unity Malls in other states and big tourist places.  The Prime Minister also talked about his fondness for Gamosa  and said that it encapsulates the hard work and skills of the women of Assam. He also noted the increasing demand for Gamosa  and self-help groups that have emerged to meet the rising demand. Shri Modi said that the Budget has made special provisions for these self-help groups. “In order to make the income of women a means of their empowerment, ‘Mahila Samman Saving Certificate’ scheme has also been started. Women will especially get the benefit of higher interest on savings” he said. He also said that PM Awas Yojana allocation has been increased to 70 thousand crores and most of the houses built under the scheme are in the name of the women of the house. “There are many such provisions in this budget, from which women of North Eastern states like Assam, Nagaland, Tripura, Meghalaya will be widely benefited, new opportunities will be created for them’, he added. 

Quoting the teachings of Krishnaguru, the Prime Minister said that one should always serve their own soul while believing in the daily acts of devotion. Underlining that the lifeline of various government run schemes for the development of the country make for the power of the society and public participation, the Prime Minister said that these Sewa Yagya like the one organized today are becoming a great strength of the country. Giving the examples of Swacch Bharat, Digital India and various other schemes that were made successful by public participation, the Prime Minister emphasized that Krishnaguru Sevashram has an important role to play in taking forward schemes like Beti Bachao Beti Padhao, Poshan Abhiyan, Khelo India, Fit India, Yoga  and Ayurveda that will further strengthen the nation. 

The Prime Minister pointed out that the country is starting PM Vishwakarma Kaushal Yojana for the traditional artisans. “The country has now for the first time resolved to enhance the skills of these traditional artisans”, the Prime Minister emphasized, requesting Krishnaguru Sevashram to work to spread awareness about the scheme. The Prime MInister asked the Sewashram to propagate coarse grains, recently branded as Shri Anna by preparing ‘Prasada’ with Shri Anna. He also asked them to take the history of the freedom fighters to the younger generation through Sevashram publications. Concluding the address, the Prime  Minister said that we will be witnessing a more empowered India when this Akhand Kirtan will take place after 12 years.
