PM replied to array of questions like the expectations of parents and teachers, self-confidence and sincerity, with the students and listened to all their queries before giving them the mantra to tackle disappointment and stress, mantra of success and bringing glory to the country. He further emphasised the need for educating children irrespective of their gender and understanding the exhaustive NEP 2020 which is going to open newer avenues of learning and redefining education.
