Be contented….

The person richest on the earth are those contented..

Will share a story..

Four years back, the day started normal  for me… Walked from my hostel to T.Nagar bus stand to catch a bus to my office.

The sun was scorching in the morning 8.30 AM, that was April so imagine the heat in Chennai….

In the bus stand, A woman, covered her little baby and held close to her chest. After some time she came from the shade and started begging, removed the cloth which covered her baby… that tender skin  became pink because of heat.

The heat burn for the baby will definitely hurt the mother… how could she do that.

I (almost all mothers) will be hurt if there is a small scratch on her baby…

Many scolded her for this act… I could understand her situation.

“Heat burn is better than hunger” she actually gives something better to her child…

I don’t know how I reached Thoraipakkam bus stop.  My heart was heavy.

Compared my life… How blessed I am….

I took the point of success…”Be contented and then wish for more”

Morality…. Expected in every individual.. but?

Be it our Boss, Organization, Subordinates, Customer service executives, Retail shop billers, bus conductors…… and so on.

Whom so ever we contact in daily life is expected to maintain morality.

Where does it come from? DNA?? (don’t blame on it)

Its to be imparted from childhood…. like how we teach our kids to master from brushing his teeth to tieing his shoe lays.

we used to attend moral science period weekly thrice in our school(I mean 2 decades back). This used to be an interesting class equivalent to P.Ed class. Moral science teacher used to tell interesting stories with a moral in each. We learnt many good morals in that short stories.. If not all,we follow certain morals learnt in our childhood.

But in current education system… we have.

Maths, Biology, Language, Social studies,P.Ed (Least bothered, generally utilized by science teachers) classes…

Where is Moral Science class? Its occupied by main subject classes.

By missing moral science class we are missing out completeness of education. 

We find many shocking news around the world which is not expected from students community…

The moral quotient is degrading in today’s generation, to confirm this you don’t want to take a survey. Just speak to a teacher… she will tell… Students are bright to average in studies but they lack basic discipline, they are not wishing teachers and passes comments on them…. so on.

This generation are very smart and powered by all technologies, for sure they are going to make big money. But without moral in their life.

All educationists should think about this and rework on the syllabus. Parents too should contribute equally. 

“Morality, like art is drawing a line somewhere”
