Excerpts from the book ‘Exam Warriors’ by Narendra Modiji.


The closest parallel to exams is festivals! 

You may be surprised but let me explain why…


To begin with, there is a great spirit of anticipation in the run-up to festivals. They are among the most awaited events of the year. I am sure you look forward to festivals such as Holi, Diwali, Eid, Christmas and Guru Purab. Similarly, haven’t you been discussing your exams months in advance and planning for them diligently?


Festivals bring out the best in us. Exams too are meant to bring out the best in you. The year-long acquisition of knowledge and thorough preparation strengthen you.

Festivals are best enjoyed together. the more people you celebrate festivals with, the happier you feel.


Even in the case of exams, you are not celebrating this festival alone. Lakhs of students-from Kashmir to kanyakumari, from kutch to kohima-are celebrating with you. You also have the support of your family and friends. 


It is believed that prayers during festivals are more rewarding. Similarly, studying before and during exams is more effective.


I am confident that you are all set to celebrate the festival of exams with much cheer and happiness.
