Two young exam warriors pronounce their verdict on Narendra Modi’s new book

Anika’s Review:

This is a short and easy to read book. It is written by Narendra Modi, our Prime Minister. As you can guess from the title it talks about exams. Can you guess who the warriors are? Us kids! We all take exams and in a certain way we are the warriors. It is mostly written for the kids taking board exams but it can be applicable to everyone else too.

Most of us get nervous when the exams come but after reading this book you will feel a lot calmer. The book is filled with tips and advice on Do’s and Don’ts before the exam. It teaches you to look at exams in a positive way and not get scared of them. It even shows how little things like packing your bag is important. It gives a lot of emphasis on organization. Making timetables and prioritizing your work helps a lot and saves time. One of the things mentioned is sleep. Most of us like sleeping late but writing an exam with a tired mind compared to writing an exam with a fresh one has a huge difference.

My favourite part of the book was the topic of the presentation. I love writing and presenting my work neatly. As I found out in the book that a neat answer sheet can make all the difference in the world. I felt the most important thing in the book was Yoga. Yoga helps in making our mind clear and focused. It is good to do Yoga before going to write an exam. There are few Yoga asanas given at the back of the book. I tried a few of them and they were fun and easy to do. The book is lots of fun. It has many activities related to each topic. There are activities for example: creating your own mind-map and timetable, writing do’s and don’ts, solving crosswords and mazes. There is a ‘My Mantra’ page at the end of each topic. You can write your mantra or motto for the exam on this page. On each activity page, there is a QR code which you can scan and then share your work with other people.

Anvita’s Review

This book was given to me a few days back by my father, who recommended I read it because he said it was educational. The title says, ‘Exam Warriors’, and I decided to read it as my exams are nearing. This book gives you various tips that would help you concentrate before, during, and after the exam. It is written by Narendra Modi, our Prime Minister, and is a very motivational book. Each chapter has a point you should follow, and all of them are valid and help. It is not boring, as the author uses day-to-day examples to prove his point, and the language is simple. All the points mentioned in the book are what most people have gone through before and during exams. I really like the first chapter, as it made me start to love the book. The first chapter says that festivals are the occasions that anyone waits for, and the same way, kids wait for their exams, and before the exams, there is a lot of talk and preparation. The book also points out that both, festivals and exams, are meant to bring out the best in us. We should not treat exams like a burden but enjoy them. The book makes such a strong point, that you start to understand what the author is trying to stay. Let me briefly go through the contents of the book.

  • Mantra 1 – Exams are like festivals – Celebrate them
  • Mantra 2 – Exams test your current preparation, not you. Chill!
  • Mantra 3 – Laugh in, Laugh out
  • Mantra 4 – Be a Warrior, not a Worrier
  • Mantra 5 – Knowledge is permanent – pursue it
  • Mantra 6 – Compete – with yourself
  • Mantra 7 – It’s your time – make the most of it
  • Mantra 8 – The Present is God’s greatest ‘Present’ – live here and now
  • Mantra 9 – Technology is a great teacher – embrace it
  • Mantra 10 – To do your best, take adequate rest
  • Mantra 11 – Sleep is a great weapon – sharpen it
  • Mantra 12 – Play to shine
  • Mantra 13 – Be your own anchor – celebrate your own strengths
  • Mantra 14 – Revise and become wise
  • Mantra 15 – Little things matter – observe exam discipline
  • Mantra 16 – Your exam, your methods – Choose your own style
  • Mantra 17 – Presentation is key – master it
  • Mantra 18 – To cheat is to be cheap
  • Mantra 19 – The answer sheet is a one-way ticket – move ahead
  • Mantra 20 – Discover yourself – experience all that life offers
  • Mantra 21 – India is incredible – travel and explore
  • Mantra 22 – As one journey ends, another begins
  • Mantra 23 – Aspire, not to be, but to do
  • Mantra 24 – Be grateful
  • Mantra 25 – Yoga brings transformation – practice regularly

My favourite points were Mantras 3, 5 and 23. I have noticed that when anyone laughs, they look more relaxed. When you are more relaxed, answers come to you more quickly. During exams, if only part of a chapter is coming, no one looks at the other part, as they only want to study what will be coming in the chapter. They do not get that we study so that we can carry the knowledge with us to our next academic year. The last mantra explains to you that we should not keep dreaming, but get on with the work. If you want to become a singer, do not keep dreaming, but go for classes, and practice singing instead. The book has entertaining exercises after every mantra and a page that reads ‘MY MANTRA’, which is where you can write your own principle that you follow during the exams. At the bottom of some pages, there is a QR code that if you scan, you can upload your exercise on the Narendra Modi App, and read what other exam warriors have written. The simplicity of the book is what attracts me to it. The book does not include anything that we cannot do but has simple techniques that will assist us. For a student taking exams, it is a must, as it reassures, motivates, and most importantly calms you down before an exam and helps you do much better.
