Talk to me #WithoutFilter: Modi on Pariksha Pe Charcha
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday addressed 200 students during a 'Pariksha Pe Charcha' and said his conversations with them will be 'hashtag without filter (#WithoutFilter)'.
Assuring students of his complete focus, Modi said they could speak to him openly.
'Speak to me hashtag without filter,' he said.
He also said students should not be afraid of failure and take it as a part of life.
'Was told I shouldn't attend Chandrayaan landing as there was no guarantee of success but I needed to be there,' he said.
There are many scopes and career paths to take, he told students,
'There is importance of exams. However, we should break the illusion that it (exams) are life,' the Prime Minister said.
Modi further asked students and parents to keep themselves away from technology for a certain period of time.
'Where there are 2-3 rooms in a house...... Can you decide with your parents a room where no technology will not be allowed? Whoever enter the room will sit without technology,' Modi said.
Good marks in exams are not everything, he told the students in the interaction. 'We have to come out of the thinking that exams are everything,' the Prime Minister said.
