Here are top quotes from Prime Minister from "Pariksha Par Charcha" interaction:

1.    "Always keep the student in you alive"

3.    "Yoga is a wonderful way to improve concentration"

4.    "Do not compete with others, compete with yourself"

6.    "Every child in India is a born politician. They know how to get their work done, be it through their grandparents, or mother or father or even their sibling" 

7.    "I would request parents not to make the achievements of their child a matter of social prestige. Every child is blessed with unique talents"

8.    Do not compete with others, compete with yourself. Every student has its own potential, says PM Modi. He requests parents to not put pressure on the children for good grades instead let the students find their own potential.

9.    "Self-confidence is very important. It`s not a pill or herb. There is no tablet that can be consumed for instant confidence. We have to build it every day."

10. "During exams, sleeping is vital but more important is the quality of sleep"

11. IQ & EQ both have importance in life; EQ should be focused equally. EQ gives power in life”
