Bengaluru: PM Narendra Modi, who was interacting with dozens of students from across the country at the headquarters of ISRO was asked for tips to become the President of India.”My aim is to become President of India so what steps I should follow,” asked a student, selected by ISRO ‘Space Quiz’ competition to witness the landing of Chandrayaan 2 on the moon’s surface.
Responding to the boy, PM Modi asked him why he doesn’t aim to become the Prime Minister instead. “Why President? Why not Prime Minister?” replied the Prime Minister.
During the brief interaction, the Prime Minister also told the students to “aim big in life and divide targets into small parts. Go for achieving these small goals. Forget about what you missed and never let disappointment enter in the way.”
“What will you tell people back home,” PM Modi asked a student. She replied that she would say communication to Chandrayaan’s lander, Vikram, was lost.
Besides, the PM also motivated the students by giving autographs and posing for selfies with all the students before he left the ISRO HQ.
