Growing morally scrupulous and having virtuous qualities have increasingly become a monumental task. Family and school are the two of the institutions which impart it to a man greatly. However, it has become a debatable topic where a category of people claim that molding a child well behaved is the obligation of parents, whereas another section of people believe it to be the prime duty of school for various reasons.
On the one hand, a section of people vehemently deems that parents are the corner stone that can change a young one into an excellent personality with finest mores. Firstly, parents are the true heroes for children because the latter imitates the former like copycat. Secondly, as children spend huge amount of their time with their parents, the latter get more time to guide children to build up a good behavioral pattern. Admittedly, what they learn from their parents is clearly imprinted in their blank minds which later play a pivotal role in framing one’s behavior. To illustrate this, children living in broken family tend to be more violent and ill-mannered than those in stable and peaceful family. Thirdly, family being biggest institution like religion exerts enormous influence in the overall development of personality which ultimately makes him a highly valued citizen with finest etiquettes and patterns of behavior.
On the other hand, some people prefer school to family to mould child’s character for various reasons. To begin with, peer group interaction at school makes a child highly socialized whereby he learns the accepted behavioral patterns from his fellow students. Also, he realizes the importance of being morally scrupulous. Presumably, the tender hearted children do not appreciate wrong doings. Furthermore, various competitions held at school level teach a child to accept the defeat and to appreciate the success so that it makes him a well behaved person in the future. In addition, school teacher’s modes of behavior and manners are well absorbed by students and treated as an epitome for the finest behavior. Above all, teachers, perfect role models, can admonish children for wrong doings and appreciate for good gestures.
In my opinion, elements of both parenthood and schooling together mould a child into respectable individual by making him behave nobly and ethically upright and thereby to become committed member in a society.
My home country is famous for its diverse culture and heritage, It is known as land of festivals and celebrations. People here give importance to religious and historical events. They celebrate them as a mark of remembrance of events. Many festivals are celebrated here like Holi, Baisakhi, Is, Dussehra,Christmas and many more. But the festival which has a paramount significance is Diwali.
Diwali is known to be festival of lights. Hindus celebrate it with great enthusiasm. It comes in the month of October or November, 20 days after Dussehra. People start preparing for this festival in advance. They clean and decorate their houses, buy new clothes, utensils and jewellery. Not Only this, markets and shops are also well decorated for this Gala day. The festival has a connection with the great Epic ‘Ramayana’. As Lord Rama returned on this day after 14 years of exile with his wife sita and younger brother Laxmana, so people of his kingdom celebrated his return with great joy and happiness by lighting earthen lamps and distributing sweets.
People wear new clothes, worship the Goddess of wealth Laxmi, exchange sweets and gifts with their friends, relatives and neighbours. Children enjoy this festival by bursting crackers. I also follow all traditions, customs and rituals to celebrate this festival . I also like it most due to its importance, sanctity and auspiciousness.
One thing I dislike about this holy day is that some people indulge themselves in drinking and gambling which is really very bad. The other thing is that just to have fun, people burst crackers of high noise bombs which create noise as well as air pollution.
Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the Body. Most of us have gotten caught up in an exhilarating new tale that transport us to the new world and allow our mind to de-stress and learn new things. Since childhood, to engender reading habits, My Mother always encouraged me to read good books. In my childhood I read many story books but, the one which left an everlasting impression on my mind was ‘Stories from panchatantra’.
This book was gifted to me by my mother during my annual summer vacations in 6th class. This book was a big book of 500 pages. It comprised of 150 stories. All the tales were related to morals and the values which were conveyed through animal characters. To make the book more attractive and valuable, there were colourful pictures of animals in animated form. The book was written in simple English language with bold words. Every story had related games and colouring activities which made it more activity oriented and rewarding for children. The title page was equally colourful and fascinating.The look of the book was so catchy that if it was lying on table, one could not sit without having a glance at it.
This books instilled moral values like co-operation, co-ordination , discipline , dedication , helping attitude. I liked the book because of its wide constructive benefits . Firstly, It is renowned axiom that ‘knowledge is power’ it helped in boosting my vocabulary. Secondly, It made me a better writer. Thirdly, It created strong analytical skills and improved my focus and concentration. Lastly, It fostered all around character building as it provided different life perspectives that helped improved my empathic capabilities.
