...written for the school children

Mom and I have prepared the following lines for my mom’s students (6th to 10th classes). I’m just keeping them here as it is. Friends, interested may read on.

Moral Education

It is equally important to know the moral values along with the curriculum. Moral values not only help you to grow as a good person in the society, but they also keep you successful. Moral values such as helping the needy, maintaining good human relations, being capable of identifying one’s strengths and weaknesses, encouraging the talent develop your personality. As you grow with good moral values you will become a responsible citizen of our country; hence a flawless society can be built.

Women empowerment

In today’s society almost half of the people are women. Hence they must be given equal rights in securing the education, employment which they much deserve. Educated woman gets economic freedom to live herself, confidence to move forward so as to make a definite change in the society. In the contemporary world, women are equally placed along with the men in almost all professions. In addition to that if women are also given a better chance in the politics, our society and country will be developed faster than ever. As Mr. Jawaharlal Nehru said, an educated woman can be an inspiration to the whole family. Similarly women empowerment will be more useful for the whole country. All of you shall try to get the women empowered.

Population education

India is the second most populated country in the world. Heavy population is the first hurdle to the development of any country. It keeps the people unemployed, it creates food problems, environmental pollution etc. Controlling the population leads to many advantages for any country. Small families are relatively more successful in the contemporary world than the larger ones. In a small family the children are provided with the required resources such as education. People of every country shall understand the advantages of less population.



I enjoy reading about different countries and cultures and your post was very interesting.
Thanks for sharing,

Very interesting post !!

I am an advocate for highly educated women ;)
In the Netherlands it is now 50/50
and women earn as much as men.
No more emancipation (hardly ....)
Equal rights for men and womans is very important !!
(Its always nice to know more about other countries ;)

Have a nice evening
and I wish you good luck
with your studies,
a good education is very important, go for it ..... :)

Americanising Desi said...

education is a right almost always denied by the masses - and i wonder why after so many pros, cons are the ones advertised!

Nice.I hv some views on women's empowerment.Despite their being 52% of population they are still cringing for one third representation.The menfolk are still dithering.We are still in patriarchal society when men are loath to give up their superior position simply on basis of his gender.The laws of land are loaded against women.When girls outshine boys upto class 12, you find their number dwindling thereafter.How many girls are in prestigious institutions and civil services commensurate with their number.Women shd use the power of ballot to bring home powerfully the message.

The Idle Brain said...

What to say!
These are just 3 among 'N' social issues we have. Should have made the list longer. Those students would have died mugging up.

Sad, but true! Words don't easily sink in. Should have designed activities to teach these.

Hatsoff to ur mom n u. Truly inspiring. As I already said, such posts remind me of the work I did with my mother - preparing charts, cartoons etc to make learning easier for her students. Hence I can relate. Her passion & dedication always awed me. I also learnt what 'teaching' truly means.

Hi! Pramoda,

well said..
The moral part should be actually learned from our home....earlier we used to find children who used to stand up in respect when an elder enters....but today do we?
atleast let teachers do

Read 4 posts now. All is well that ends well. How is your hand or rather fingers now? Hope you learnt a lesson not to be so absent minded when handling hot things. Life is nothing but perceptions but we do need to know what happens is for good only. Reward is biggest incentive, even verbal. What you say here are facts and hope young generation can understand it.

Take care

Hi Pramoda!
Though this is written for the school children, all of us can take home few lessons from it!
Very well said...Having good morals is part of the big picture...they are more important than the A's in Maths or 90% in PMT/PET or the Outstanding ranking in the Performance Appraisals!

PS: I'd like to subscribe your posts in a reader...can't find the icon. Pls help!

Amity said...

That's very true...:)

I wish to push for women's lib and empowerment so that we are not solely dependent on men particularly on finances...:)

I, too live in a thickly populated country and I find it so chaotic, maybe because of poor leaderships. Poverty is a very big problem.

I envy other countries like The Netherlands for having a small population and rich citizens. No pauper there, Anya told me once.
