According to the ministry, in stressful times, talking about and sharing uncomfortable and confusing thoughts helps students to reduce stress and anxiety to a great extent. It is an effort to provide a platform to students, parents and teachers to share their views and receive guidance and valuable suggestions from the PM.
Last year on April 1, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had a discussion dialogue with the students on the examination. During this, the Prime Minister told the students that I hope that this year you will not have exam stress. The Prime Minister wished the students for the coming festivals and said that if the festival comes in the middle of the examinations, we cannot enjoy the festival, but if we consider the examination as a festival, then we can enjoy it to the fullest.
At Delhi’s Talkatora Stadium, the Prime Minister had a dialogue called ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’ with students, parents and teachers. During this, while answering the questions of the students, the Prime Minister said that why do you have this fear regarding the examination. Are you going to take the exam for the first time? There is no one among you who is going to take the exam for the first time. All of you have given many exams. You have reached towards the end of the exam. You decide one thing that exams are a natural part of life. These are small stages of life that we have to go through and we have gone through before.
‘Pariksha Parv’ program was also started to remove the anxiety of the students going to appear in the examination and suffering from examination stress. This program was influenced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’ program. The objective of celebrating Pariksha Parv was to continue our endeavor towards making examinations an enjoyable activity.
According to NCPCR, Hypariksha Parv is a celebration of examinations, aimed at bringing a change in the attitude of children towards the stress caused by examinations on one platform and alleviating their pre-examination anxiety.
