Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with thousands of students, parents and teachers in the second edition of 'Pariksha Pe Charcha 2.0' on Tuesday in the national capital. Weeks ahead of the exams of Class 10 and Class 12, PM Modi urged the parents to not force their children to "fulfil" their "unfulfilled" dreams during the session.
Taking to Instagram on Thursday, PM Modi shared a picture wherein he once again asked the parents to not turn their children's record card into their visiting card, adding that "every child is talented".
"Do not make the report card of your children your own visiting card. Each child is talented. Give them the platform to shine," reads PM Modi's Instagram story.

During the interaction with the gathering at the Pariksha Pe Charcha 2.0, PM Modi talked about the pressure of exams that overpowers many students and parents alike during the exam time.
"Exams are important in life, but one should not be stressed by it. Abhi nahi to kabhi nahi (if not now, it means never), should not be the only motto. Ask yourselves if this is an exam of your life or is it just an exam for a particular grade like Class 10 or 12? Once you know the answer to this, your pressure will reduce," he said.
He also said, "I hope parents do not make the report card of their children their own visiting cards because if that is the aim then the expectations from children become unreal," he added.
Earlier on Tuesday, Prime Minister Modi posted some pictures of the delightful moments he shared with the students and teachers during the interactive session on social media.
