Growing Need & Recognition of
Moral Education in Present Scenario

By Moral Education “we mean inculcation of refined ideals, values, principles with a view to bring a purposeful behavioural change among the inhabitants of this universe”. Man is created as a paragon of creation. He has got the power of learning and has changed from a mere animal to a civilized one by inculcating perpetual learning skills. This implies that continuous learning emanating from education plays pivotal role in making him resourceful, purposeful and usable for the society. Man has gained control over the nature but still we can’t deny the supremacy of the nature. All the holy books and scriptures remind us about the moral aspects of life but we have kept those thoughts over the shelves. Education is a tri-polar process involving Teacher, Pupil and the Society wherein the Teacher processes the Pupil and their interaction has a direct bearing on the society. If the pupils are trained along the lines of morality, they become the flag bearers of the society. But the current system of education in Kashmir presents a gloomy picture as the educational institutions have merely become the factories of producing the stereotyped and corrupted individuals.

There is no denying the fact that system of education in Kashmir has progressed a lot both qualitatively and quantitatively but at the same time the moral aspects associated with the educational system have been grossly underplayed which has adversely affected the development of personality of the youth. Now-a-days, we have equipped all the institutions with the modern psycho-technical trends ignoring the aforesaid aspect which has lead to the creation of corrupted individuals for tomorrow. Such individuals seldom the law and order and show least concern for others thereby posing a serious threat to the prevailing peace in the society. Commercialization of education at system has further deteriorated wherein dissemination of ethical & molestation, the pressing need to influence moral values in the coming generation & educational setup will be the best platform to make a humble beginning.

The respect for elders, teachers, parents and the distinction of good and bad is going less day by day although we are imparting knowledge in context with modern evolved techniques ignoring the moral aspect. We could not blame only teachers for this. The parents of now-a-days also contributed a lot towards the lessening the moral character of their wards as they are so busy in their routine works. It is quite eminent from the above stated facts that an early action has to be taken in this regard. In fact, a multi-pronged action has to be taken at different levels by the state administration, academician and the parents collectively to ensure the germination of the seeds of morality & ethics amongst the children thereby making them responsile citizens of the future society.
