One of the first questions that were asked was about the societal pressure on students before board exams. Below is an excerpt of PM Modi's solution to societal pressure-
"This question has always been asked for the past 7 episodes in different ways. It means every batch suffers through the same problem....We cannot switch off ourselves to stay away from pressure and negativity. We should make ourselves capable. We should accept that such things keep on coming and therefore we have to adapt to the situation. For example, if we are going to cold places, then we prepare our minds before going., But when we go there and we don't feel that much cold then we feel relaxed. It means we have to accept and make up our minds.
Another pressure is we have to study this many hours and solve the entire syllabus in one night. But have to take it slowly, or else this pressure hampers on a large scale. The third one being is commentary by parents saying see your friends study, for completion of syllabus. When parents stop, teachers start in school. It is also a kind of pressure. The fourth one being is thinking negatively by ourselves. This has to be addressed by all students, parents, and even teachers. Conversation is the only way forward."
