The Ministry of Education said on Tuesday that the annual Pariksha Pe Charcha event, during which Prime Minister Narendra Modi speaks with students about how to manage exam stress, will take place on January 27 at Delhi’s Talkatora Stadium.
The event was first held in 2018, and this will be its sixth edition. Due to the pandemic, Pariksha Pe Charcha was conducted online in a town hall format in 2021.
A select number of students, teachers, and parents get to interact with the PM live in addition to it being streamed live through television and social media platforms. They are selected via an online creative writing competition, the topics of which are shared to schools around the nation.
This time, “know your freedom fighters,” “our culture is our pride,” “my startup dream,” “education for skilling,” and “future educational challenges” have been picked as the themes.
In comparison to PPC-2022, which had around 15.7 lakh participants, PPC-2023 has about 38.80 lakh participants (students- 31.24 lakh, teachers – 5.60 lakh, parents – 1.95 lakh). Parents from 50 nations, teachers from 51 countries, and students from over 150 countries have enrolled for PPC-2023, according to a statement from the ministry.
