Prime Minister Narender Modi’s Teachers Day address ended in a hearty chit chat with students across the country., he took questions from some young boys and girls whose depth on knowledge sharing and their ambitions amazed many. While quizzers were in the audience at the Delhi auditorium where he gave his speech; others made their queries through video-conference.

Ten big quotes from PMs speech are as below.

– I never thought (that I would become PM or famous in the world). I didn’t even run for class monitor back in school.

– Yes, I am a taskmaster and it is not that I don’t work hard myself.

– Work hard, play hard and sweat a lot at least four times a day. Don’t be glued to books all day.

– Never ever let the child in you die. This is the age when a small child thinks he can climb a wall.

– India is a young nation. Can’t we think of exporting good teachers? Why can’t our children think, ‘I want to be a good teacher’? What is the reason why a lot of people don’t want to be teachers? We must think about this. The world needs good teachers.

– ‘Google guru’ is mostly used these days. It may give information, but it doesn’t give knowledge.

– There was a time when teacher used to command great respect. The times have gradually changed. We need to restore how it used to be.

– Can there be any child who isn’t naughty? I was also naughty. We used to go to weddings and quietly staple people’s clothes together. But promise me you wouldn’t do such things.

– Serving the nation doesn’t mean dying for it or doing politics. You don’t need to do grand things. You can contribute by saving electricity and protecting the environment.

– I don’t consider politics a profession. It is a form of service. And the need to serve rises from a sense of belonging.
