New Delhi: During the second edition of ‘Pariksha Par Charcha’ on Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi touch one the sensitive aspect of many children across India after he said “PUBG-wala” while answering questions on exam stress at his student interaction session.
A parent raised a rather contemporary concern that persists in the digital generation.
The parent asked, “My son use to be really good with studies, but for the past some time, his inclination towards online games has drastically elevated. I tried explaining him a lot, but I’m unsuccessful.”
Upon hearing this question, an updated-with-technology PM Modi said, ” PUBG-wala hai kya? (Is he the PUBG one),” leaving the room full of students in splits.
Parent: Sir, my child was a very good student but of late, he is too engrossed with online gaming, which is distracting him.

He further elaborated on how technology is a boon and a bane at the same time, but we must indulge in conversations with the kids about the brilliant possibilities that technology can bring in, making it dinner table conversations.
Recently, the Gujarat government issued circular asking district authorities to ensure a ban on PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, popularly known as PUBG.
