‘Don’t sit idle, dream. Observe and learn from what’s around you’
Prime Minister Narendra Modi cited the example of Lata Mangeshkar to urge students to concentrate on and perfect the skill they are good at.
Addressing the first virtual edition of Pariksha Pe Charcha, Modi asked students to distribute their energy and time uniformly for each subject. Successful people are not perfect in everything but possess one core strength, he added.
Over 13 lakh students from 81 countries had registered for the virtual interaction.
The Prime Minister suggested students use their free time to help parents and siblings in their chores or to take up interests such as story-writing or painting.
“Give a way to express your thoughts. Creativity can take you where no one has reached," he said.
The pandemic, he said, has given families an opportunity to come together and understand each other better.
Modi urged parents not to burden children with their values but to inculcate basic values through their upbringing.
“It is not necessary for children to follow the same values as their parents,” the Prime Minister said.
Observe what’s around you and learn from it, was Modi’s message. “Think of that one dream that you wish to fulfil, your vision will be clear,” he said.
