Kottayam: Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’ is an annual event where the PM interacts with students from across the country to motivate them to approach the upcoming exams in a relaxed and stress-free manner.
This year, D Nandita (plus two) and D Nivedita (class eight) have been chosen from Kerala to attend the mega event. The sisters, both students of Kendriya Vidyalaya at Rubber Board, Kottayam, will attend the ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’ event at 11 am on 1 April at the Talkatora Indoor Stadium in New Delhi.
Nandita and Nivedita are the daughters of Thannermukkam natives P Devarajan who is a Vedic Math trainer and PS Dhanya who works as a computer programmer at the Government Engineering College, Pampady.
The sisters had become quite popular during the lockdown period when they taught Maths through simple methods. The videos that they had posted on YouTube had become super hits. Former director of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and current secretary of the ministry of education Anitha Karwal had then appreciated the sisters.
Nandita and Nivedita got the invitation to take part in the PM’s interactive session directly through Kendriya Vidyalaya.
More than 2,000 students from across the country are expected to attend the programme. Eleven students who have excelled in various fields got direct invitation to interact with the Prime Minister. Nandita and Nivedita are the only students from Kerala who are included in this list. They would also get special stalls at the stadium where they could exhibit their findings.
Nandita and Nivedita are accompanied by Renu Takur, the Hindi teacher at their school.
