Hard work has got no alternative and if the students make a firm determination and work hard then no task is difficult to achieve but at the same time they should not be under any kind of pressure. The Education Minister Arvind Pandey said this while addressing students at Lakshman Inter College here on Friday. The Minister was in the school to watch the interaction of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on examination related stress. Arrangements for live telecast of the programme were made by the school authorities. He said that the students are the real wealth of the nation and they should be completely free from any form of fear and tension.
Exhorting the students to keep firm determination, the Minister said that they can realise the dreams of their parents by hard work.
He said that if a boy selling tea at Railway Station can become Prime Minister of the country, then any child belonging to poor family can achieve anything in life with hard work and his capabilities.
The Minister said that one becomes tough by difficulties and students should not get bogged down by them. In the programme, hundreds of the students intently watched the “ Pariksha par charcha’’ programme in which PM Modi answered the questions of the students at Tal Katora indoor stadium in New Delhi. There were bouts of laughter and claps whenever PM told some anecdote or advised something important to the students.
Ravi Pal, a class IX student of the Laxman School said that regular studies are beneficial as one remains stress free during the time of the examination. He said that PM’s suggestion not to get distracted by what others are doing and instead concentrate on one’s strengths appealed him.
His classmate Unais Khan said that the parents should take note of PM’s caution that they should not burden the child with their aspiration.
“Parents should not put pressure on us about our career. Instead they should help us in achieving what we want to become,’’ he said.
Lucky Singh, a class X student said that the PM said that one should do introspection and identify his/ her strengths appealed him and he would follow it.
Atul Thapa of class IX said that Modi’s suggestion of engaging in a competition with oneself for achieving success is something he will try to follow.
EDU MIN REFUSES TO SIT ON SPECIAL SOFA
The Education Minister Arvind Pandey ignored the request of the school administration to sit on special sofa and watch the programme and instead choose to sit on the floor mat along with the students. With him other officers of the education department sat on the floor. In the programme the Minister assumed the role of a teacher as he reprimanded students for engaging in talking during the event. He told the students that the talks can be held later but the important advice of PM should not be ignored. Pandey recalled that when he was in school he used to wear one pair of uniform for an entire week.
