Article – Moral Values (a must in student’s life)
Students are the future of India. The future of our country is depends on the moral values imparted to them in their student life. Moral lessons should be properly implemented among students in school and colleges. Children have a immense power of observation and their feelings are deep rooted. They always observe their parents at home and their teachers in school. The method of teaching moral values to students is universal. It is the most important duty of the teachers. If a child misbehaves or tells lies, people blame the parents and teachers. Children resort to lie for their personal gains. They are really clever and try to get what they want by any means. They will steal and say that they have not. To teach them that stealing or telling lie is bad will be lost labor. It is an unrealistic approach. Thus examples of honesty and truthfulness in school and colleges are more effective than precepts or moral preaching. Students are very sensitive. They fast copy their teachers. The teachers should always behave properly and set an example. The students look at them as their ideal. Even some students of cultured and refined families lose moral values if the school environment is not proper. If a child observes his teachers to be truthful and honest, he shall imbibe some of their virtues, if not all. In schools the text books ought to be based on symbolic stories. Mere platform lecture by teachers on the values of truth and honesty would bear no fruit. These days the government plans the texts of the children on these principles. In History, characters of great heroes, social reformers and prophets of truth are painted through colourful stories. These directly influence the personality of a child. They readily condemn the evil doers and the liars. They follow such allegories or parables as facts and believe them readily. Like a tender seedling that grows if it finds good soil, the minds of student get a solid base. The process of learning for a child is not magical. It is important that the student has sound base of strong moral values. It calls for much caution and observation from school and college authorities.
