Prime Minister Narendra Modi will interact with a cross-section of students, teachers and parents in “Pariksha Pe Charcha 2.0” on January 29 to discuss issues relating to examinations and connected stress.
An online competition has been organized from January 7-17 for students of classes 9 to 12, graduate and undergraduate college students, their parents and their teachers.
They can participate through www.mygov.in website. Students from Class 9 to 12 and students in graduate and undergraduate classes, below 25 years of age, can participate in Catchy Caption Contest to suggest a punchy, witty, and meaningful caption for the image up to 150 characters.
Selected winners will have an opportunity to meet the Prime Minister at the venue of the Pariksha pe Charcha 2.0 event, an official press release said.
I am Inspired Contest for Classes 9 to 12 and My Success Mantra for Graduate and undergraduate classes are to see if the students have benefited from the insights Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave in his book ‘Exam Warriors’ and whether was there something in the book that made them look at exams, or life, differently.
"It could be a mantra, it could be a concept, or it could be the whole ‘Exam Warriors’ book itself and students can share their experiences in maximum 500 characters," the release said.
Teachers can share the experiences, whether it is something from the syllabus or in facing the challenge of exams, which can be a punchy and short mantra for exam success to students, which should not exceed 500 characters.
Parents can share the experience as to how they taught their children or if there is a lot that they learn from their children as well. What is it that they have learnt from the young Exam Warrior at home. The answers cannot exceed 500 characters.
Unlike last year, Pariksha Pe Charcha 2018, this year only the selected students, parents and teachers who have won the contest will be interacting with Mr Modi.
First-time students from all over India are being called as compared to last year where only Delhi / NCR students participated.
This year a cultural programme of 10 minutes has also been included in which the bright student winners (e.g. Dancers/Singers etc) from Kala Utsav contest will be performing.
For the first time participation of Indian students residing abroad is also planned. Arrangements are being made for live telecast of the programme in all Schools/Colleges.
A total of 2000 students, parents and teachers will be participating from all over India in Pariksha pe Charcha 2.0, the release added.
