New Delhi, February 23: Exhorting school students, especially boys, to believe in themselves, Prime Minister Narendra Modi Sunday praised girl students.
"They do well in examinations despite helping their mothers in household work", he said.
In his 'Mann Ki Baat' radio programme, the prime minister said it was very important to understand and know oneself well.
"You don't have to go far away... just see your sister or may be your friend's sister who is appearing in the board examination and you would see she is assisting her mother in her household work while preparing for her examination and still does well," he said.
"Have you ever thought what power do they have? You will understand it's just lack of confidence that makes us weak," Modi said, asking students to develop it.
