"I love attending Hackathons also. They showcase the power and talent of the youth of India. As PM, I get to attend many types of programmes. Each of the programme provides a new experience. But, if someone asks me what is that one programme that touches your heart the most, I will say it is this one," PM Modi said at the begining of Pariksha Pe Charcha session.

In order to motivate students if they don't meet desired results in life, PM Modi talked about real life incidents of successful personalities who believed in themselves, hard work, conviction and dedication, initially faced failure but that ultimately put their life on the path of success.

Continuing his talk, PM Modi said, "not pursuing an co-curricular activities can make a person like a robot. Yes, this would require better time management. Today opportunities are many and I hope youngsters make use of them. What is not good is when the passion of the children becomes fashion statements for parents. Extra-curricular activities needn’t be glamour driven. Let each child pursue what he or she likes."
