Modi's Tips to Parents and Teachers


Modi asked parents not to compare their children with those of their relatives and friends.

"The life is huge. Can't you connect the child with that. If you talk to children, talk of grand dreams, of flying high and you will see that change has begun," he added.

"Compete with yourself to do good, to do fast, to do more and reach new heights. Tomorrow should be better than yesterday, focus on that and you will see that this spirit of competition will give you so much satisfaction and happiness that you cannot imagine," he said to students.

Modi asked boys to learn from girl students who "do well in examinations despite helping their mothers in household work".

"Desire plus stability is equal to determination. Determination plus hard work is equal to mastery (siddhi)," he said.

"Put yourself totally in the task. Keep your resolve positive. A person who daily competes with himself, no challenge is big for him. We should take our own examination daily," he said.

He asked students to have confidence in themselves and not to worry about results. Modi also

suggested that teachers should organise "examination festival" once a week every six months where there could be satire and poetry about examinations as well as cartoons and declamation contests.

He said there can be lectures on psychological aspects of examinations to remove fear and suggested that it can be part of syllabus. Stressing he wants every student going for the examination in a happy mood.
