Life is no easy-going business. Success here is difficult to achieve. The fact is that no one can succeed in the hard struggle of life without regularity and orderliness. A systematic, planned process counts a lot in the hard struggle of life. Discipline is, in this respect, the most vital matter.
Human efforts can bear fruit only when these are carried on in a disciplined manner. Discipline is a great rule of life. It rules everywhere. Its sway is felt everywhere-from the mysterious world of nature to the daily duty of human life. It has a wide span and spread from the animal world to the astronomical.
The sun, the moon, the stars all are subject to unchanging laws. Discipline means complete obedience to some order or rules. But discipline should not be taken to mean the curtailment of liberty. On the other hand, it implies the exercise of liberty in a proper way.
Discipline is a quality that regulates the conduct of man. It makes him useful and good to himself as well as to his community. Discipline is a great virtue. It blesses him who practises it on all occasions. It is an imperative requirement in one’s life. Without discipline, a man appears like a ship a rudder.
The great blessings of discipline are noted well in every field of life. In his study and on his playground, in his office and in his home, man needs to attain success. In his military and academic activities, in his scholarly or professional pursuits, he must have discipline as his unfailing principle.
When the sense of discipline is lost, the army loses its morale. A man without discipline can never play well. Discipline is important in every walk of human life. But its role is the use in academic matters. It is the very fundamental necessity of an educational institution.
No teaching can be of any use, unless the learners re disciplined. When the students throw all the rules and regulations of the institutions to the four winds, the institutions are reduced to the abodes of ruffians and rowdies. In fact, the concept of good education and discipline go hand in hand.
When education is divorced from discipline, it becomes utterly ineffective There is no real development of the learner under these conditions. But when discipline rules, the process of learning becomes easy, entertaining and truly instructive.
On the importance of discipline, there is no second opinion. The lack of discipline always has disastrous results. Man loses his rationality without discipline. He becomes lawless and savage. Without discipline, he becomes a bed judge and rash master. He acts senselessly and errs sadly.
A man remains unfit for any trust until he learns discipline and follows it. But the stamp of indiscipline seems to have been marked permanently on Indian life. The basic requirement of a disciplined mode of action is seldom honoured here. Liberty often degenerates into license here.
Hooliganism has become a common feature, particularly among a good many Young learners of India. Unless this dangerous tendency to indiscipline is uprooted from the the national life of India, there can be no good future for the country.
The Indians must have discipline in every field of activity. Unless they become disciplined, they have no chance of survival. Great things are to be done for the prosperity of India. But nothing great can come out of violent indiscipline acts.
Nowadays, there is much talk about indiscipline among the youth, particularly among the students. Really speaking, students are not at all the be blamed for their indiscipline. The fact is that politicians are responsible for this evil. They mislead the students. They make them their tools.
Finding their chances of being selected for technical training or for any government job dim, the students become dejected, demoralized and disappointed. Corruption-ridden administration adds to their woes. leader fails them, with the result that the students take to acts of indiscipline.
Students need to be assured of justice, fair play and a better future. Discipline has no alternative. It is needed equally in every sphere, whether inside one’s home or in the open field of action.
The unfailing adherence to discipline is the best staff to cross the stiff cross hurdles of life. Discipline to be the ‘watchword’ in every action- learning, trade and commerce, playing or fighting.
