Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who later shifted to students who are about to sit for annual examination after Chai Pe Charcha campaign spoke to students and enhanced their confidence.

As part of his Pariksha Par Charcha, an extension of his pet charcha theme, PM spoke with thousands of students from across the nation and addressed their examination-related concerns today at Talkatora Stadium in the Capital.

"You are not talking to the Prime Minister of India, you are talking to a friend, I am here as a student let us see how many marks will you give me out of 10," PM Modi said while addressing the event.

"I would like to thank my teachers for whom I am still a student. They inspired me to keep the student in me alive," he added.

The interactive session, also being dubbed as "Exam Ki Baat", was organised days after the prime minister launched his book "Exam Warriors", which is a collection of anecdotes from his growing up years and lists mantras to help students to stay calm before the examination.

"Trying to become someone is a conventional path.... Take the road less travelled," he says in this self-help guide. He also urges students to "be warriors, not worriers". "Treat exams like festivals" and "a happy mind is the secret of a good mark sheet" are among other suggestions.

Modi also said that every Indians are born 'Politicians'.
