To help spread smiles during exams, view them as occasions to celebrate learning with festive joy and to tackle exam challenges, students can now refer to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s book, Exam Warriors. An inspiring and a thought-provoking book for the youth, Exam Warriors will be a handy guide for students in India and across the world. Written in an interactive style with illustrations, activities and yoga exercises, the book will be a companion for students in not only acing exams but in facing life.
Exam Warriors seeks to add to the debate and discourse around the importance of stress-free examinations by encouraging a focus on knowledge rather than purely on marks. In the spirit of continuing dialogue, this book contains activities that are fun and thought-provoking. A series of asanas and breathing exercises are also included in this book for students to overcome stress.
The book was launched in the presence of Union External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Union Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar. Addressing the gathering, Ms Swaraj said the youth of the nation look up to the PM as an inspirational leader and his insights will be a valuable guide for them to script their own success stories. She added that the book is written in an interesting manner and motivates students to become warrior, not worriers. The ultimate beneficiaries of the book will not only be the exam warriors but also our society as a whole including teachers, parents and the larger community, she said.
Mr Javadekar said the education is an essential tool in development and progress as it opens various doors to the opportunities of achieving better prospects in life. “Education is necessary for our bright future but apart from learning, students must practice yoga to stay healthy and fit,” he said, adding that relaxing before the exams is the best way to perform well. He too reiterated PM Modi’s mantra of treating exams as a festival and not as a source of stress. He advised NCERT officials to develop a creative curriculum to make learning more exciting and interesting.
