The revised version of Exam Warriors, which was first launched in the year 2018, is being launched across the country between January 15 to 19. Hon’ble PM Modi would also address students, teachers and parents during the 6th edition of Pariksha Pe Charcha on January 27.
Terming the students as a vulnerable group and exams as a vulnerable time for students, LG Mathur appreciated Hon’ble PM Modi’s initiative for successfully addressing the issues faced by the students in Mann Ki Baat and Pariksha Pe Charcha. He stated that the 34 mantras given by PM Modi in the book show his in-depth thinking and analysis of the problems faced by the students. He further stated that the PM’s interaction with students during Pariksha Pe Charcha shows his concern and the need to reach out to students along with the teachers and parents who play an important role in preparing the students to face the board exams.
Highlighting some of the mantras given by PM Modi in the book, LG Mathur reiterated the need for the students to become a warrior instead of worrier while facing the Class 10 and 12 board exams. He emphasised the need for parents, guardians and teachers not to convey their worry to the students and instead create an atmosphere of festival during the board exams.
LG Mathur advised that the Directorate of School Education may take a cue from PM Modi’s Exam Warriors and take necessary steps while implementing National Education Policy (NEP)-2020 in Ladakh. He suggested that the book Exam Warriors may be quickly translated into Ladakhi languages such as Bhoti or Urdu before the board exams and the mantras given by PM Modi may be summarised. The material, he stated, then may be distributed among students, parents, guardians and teachers in the initial stages of the reopening of the schools in March to enable the students to face the board exams with courage.
LG Mathur wished success to Class 10 and 12 students who are going to appear in the board exams. He advised them not to fear exams and also requested the parents and guardians to change their outlook towards the board exams. He requested both the Hill Councils and the concerned officials to spread the message among the students, parents and guardians to help achieve the objective set by the Hon’ble Prime Minister.
Appreciating the initiative taken by Hon’ble PM Modi for taking up the exams-related issues, Chairman, LAHDC Kargil, Feroz Ahmed Khan, advised the students not to take unnecessary stress during exams. He highlighted the competition among students and also their parents and also the stress faced by students due to pressure from their parents during the Class 10 and 12 board exams. He stated that the book will benefit the students as well as their parents. He highlighted the need to focus on making exams stress-free in NEP-2020.
Chairman, LAHDC Leh, Advocate Tashi Gyalson, requested the students to make full of the book and use the mantras given by PM Modi in their lives. He highlighted the stress faced by the students and the disconnection between students and parents, especially during exam time. He stated that PM Modi understands the situation faced by the students and parents and addresses their concerns during Pariksha Pe Charcha. He requested that the books should be translated into the local language so that students can avail the benefits.
Earlier, Director, School Education, Ladakh, Dr Safdar Ali welcomed the guests, while CEO Leh, Sonam Dorjey Namgial, gave the vote of thanks.
