Referring to his example as Gujarat’s chief minister and then as prime minister, Modi said he likes to address difficult issues in the morning and this helps him to quickly understand these issues.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi told students on Wednesday that one cannot be good at everything, but advised them not to shy away from studying subjects that fall hard on them.
Interacting with students almost during the annual ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’ program, Modi told students to believe in reading and solving difficult topics first, when the mind is fresh, and then moving on to easy topics.
Referring to his own example as Gujarat’s chief minister and then as the country’s prime minister, Modi said he likes to address difficult issues in the morning and this helps him to quickly understand these issues.
Successful people are not experts in all subjects, but they understand one subject very well, the Prime Minister said and urged students not to run away from difficult subjects.
He said exams are just a small stop on life’s journey and not a last chance, and asked students to take exams as an opportunity to prepare for a long life without feeling pressured.
He asked students to use their free time to increase their curiosity and creativity. Modi said the world is changing fast and this will provide a lot of opportunities. He asked students to practice and take advantage of these opportunities.
Sharing a formula to sharpen memory, Modi asked students to “include, internalize, connect, and visualize”. He also spoke about the government’s “AtmaNirbhar Bharat” program or an independent Indian program and invited students to become “Vocals for the Local” with their life mantra.
