PM Modi hold interactive session with students from across India ahead of the upcoming board examinations across the country.

Holding "pareeksha pe charcha" (discussion on examination) here at Talkatora Stadium, he also offered his friendship to the youngsters and asked them to take their examinations and other challenges in daily life with confidence instead of succumbing to pressure. The prime minister will interact with students through a video conference and address their examination-related queries.

Speaking at the World Sustainable Development Summit in Delhi, the prime minister said the National Geographic's Greendex Report of 2014, which assesses the environmental sustainability of consumer choice, ranked India at the top for its greenest consumption pattern.

Modi exhorted the students to practice yoga to bring balance in their body and mind.

Before taking questions from the students, he thanked his teachers for whom he is "still a student" and for inspiring him to "keep the student alive" in him.

"Concentration isn't something that has to be specifically learnt".

Modi answered the questions for over two hours and apologised for the fact that he could not speak in other languages and hoped it would be translated and conveyed to all.

Students enquire PM Modi about the importance of self-confidence in tackling exam stress. Tendulkar had said that he only focuses on the ball that he is playing at present, and does not worry about the past or future. "Don't compare yourself to other students". He said one should only try to do better than what one had achieved earlier. "Children of this country are born politicians, they know how to deal with their parents". The prime minister added that for his board exams next year, he has wishes of 125 crore Indians.

Students from 2,000 schools and colleges are scheduled to attend the event.
