In this world where we can see that there is no peace, violence exists, there is degradation of moral values as man
has become selfish in this fast pace and cut-throat competitive world. For this, we have to take immediate steps and
preserve humanity, culture, tradition, and peace etc. We have to teach students moral values which are the basic
foundation of children as when they grow up they would be able to be better future citizens who would definitely help in the
development of society, country as well as the whole world. Through moral values, they would be able to learn about
ethics and aesthetic sense which would help them in becoming good human being. They would be able to respect others
rights and be dutiful towards the nation too.
Students should be taught poems like of Keki. N. Daruwalla and Walt Whitman which tells about the harsh
realities of life, struggles of man, corruption, riots, wars, consequences, war, exploitation of the people.
Walt, he emphasizes on Universal Brotherhood, love, care, compassion, peace, kindness, Universal Democracy which
would help in saving and preserving this earth etc. When these poems would be taught to the students in schools and at
University level they would become emphatic and would help in making this world a better place to live in by spreading
love, peace, joy, care, kindness, compassion, fraternity and heave the feeling of patriotism too.
We can say this because the future of the nation is built inside the class-rooms and if students are taught moral
values and asked to serve society like by cleaning, helping needy, spending time with orphans, old people in old age home
and orphanage and make judicious use of resources, being eco-friendly, they can help in sustainable development along
with transforming this world into a paradise.
