Super 30 founder and mathematician Anand Kumar on Friday said that the address of PM Narendra Modi with the students and his free-flowing interaction with them was a novel initiative and the way children got involved was reflection of its usefulness.

 He talked of quality of education and the importance of his digital India plan to reach out to the most students, degree-skill disconnect, need for discipline at home as well as outside, environment, cleanliness and most importantly, dream but not of becoming something, but of doing something.

 "His examples seemed to be from common homes, as he exhorted the students to develop reading habits and shun the habit of looking for short-cuts through Google guru", Anand said.

 While interacting with students on the occasion of teachers day, he talked about the value of physical activity and perspiration through his interaction. These are small things, but everyone could identify with them, he added. He said PM Modi asking how many of the students had seen sunrise, sunset and a full moon or how many sweated profusely at least four times a day reflected how the PM had his fingers on the pulse of the children how keen an observer he was.

 He involved children in his dream power conservation project through simple examples, Anand said.

Kumar said that Modi also had a message for the teachers, when a students asked him about the difference between schools in Japan and India. The prime minister differentiated it beautifully when he said in Japan, schools almost have no teaching but it gives children the chance to learn. Similarly, when he asked the teachers to learn even at the age of 45 and 50 to keep pace with changing times and technological advancement, it had a strong messag," he added.
