‘Exam Warriors‘, a book written by Prime Minister Modi, which he penned down so as to reach out to the students across the country right before their exams, is all set to launch here on Saturday!
External Affairs Minister, Sushma Swaraj, will be releasing the book, in the presence of Prime Minister Modi.
Prime Minister Modi wrote the book for the sole purpose of inspiring the youths, especially during the difficult phase of examinations and life, so as to help them regain their confidence and get back up and face the difficult situations bravely.
In ‘Mann Ki Baat‘, Modi’s monthly radio talk, he has requested students to celebrate examinations just like festivals so as to reduce stress.
Published by Penguin India, ‘Exam Warriors’ runs into 208 pages.
Here’s what Penguin India tweeted as a teaser of the book cover and wrote, “Non-preachy, practical and thought-provoking, Exam Warriors by @narendramodi is a handy guide for students in India and across the world. #CoverReveal #TheCountdownBegins”
To be released on Saturday by Penguin Publishers India, the author’s bio on the book is five paragraphs long. The very first paragraph reads, “His victory was propelled by historic support from India’s youth, particularly first-time voters.”
Here’s PM Modi’s open letter to teachers in his book, ‘ExamWarriors‘:
Let me begin by congratulating you on the wonderful work you are doing to mould and educate young minds. You belong to the noblest profession in our society and your hard work lays the foundation for a better tomorrow.
The relationship between a teacher and a student is special. Students look up to their teachers, and would no disobey them. That is why I am writing to you and seeking your support to communicate some of the ideas in this book to your students.
Needless to say, as teachers, you are vital to this effort of encouraging and supporting our Exam Warriors. As the exams approach, some students may become nervous and develop cold feet. I am sure you will give go out of your way to help them overcome their anxieties.
Every student is unique and blessed with various strengths. Your role is that of a facilitator who brings out the best in your students. Teach your students not only what is in the textbooks but also beyond. Enable them to be original and rooted thinkers who are blessed with a thirst for knowledge, a spirit of inquiry and a zeal for innovation.
It is understandable for students and parents to be thinking about college and career choices after the exams. It is heartening to note that more and more schools are institutionalising practices of mentoring, where faculty members guide students based on the many opportunities available, in tune with their aptitude. Teachers are also helping them identify the institutions for higher studies best suited to their interests.
I hope you empower your students to pursue their interests as well as create their own opportunities. Motivate them so that they do something driven by their passion instead of seeking to become something. Today’s world has numerous opportunities for the youth, which they must harness.
I also request you to keep discussing with your students how they can sit for exams in a tension-free manner, without being burdened by pressure, and how they should always pursue knowledge and not marks… issues that I have also tried to address in this book.
My best wishes in your continued quest to educate young minds!
The prime minister has already asked for a mock parliament to be organised in every district of the country on 15th August. Through this, he wants children to contribute ideas for “New India”. This would help impress upon the youth that Narendra Modi not only wants to deliver change, but is giving them a chance to have their voice in it.
