Prime Minister Narendra Modi's annual 'Pariksha pe Charcha' event in New Delhi, became more delightful as he quoted many references from everyday life to teach the students on how to deal with the failures.



Speaking at the interaction with the school students which was arranged ahead of the exam period, Modi made some interesting comments.

"Do you remember the India-Australia test series in 2001? Our cricket team was facing setbacks. The mood was not very good. But, in those moments can we ever forget what Rahul Dravid and VVSLaxman did. They turned the match around," Modi said.

"Today, I am talking to students who would be playing a key role in India's development in 2047, when we mark a hundred years since independence," he observed.

"It is common to see four members of a family seated together but each of them is on their phones. Can we think of a technology-free time? Or, have a space in the house which is technology-free. In this manner, we won't be distracted by tech," he added.
