“If a country is to be corruption free and become a nation of beautiful minds, I strongly feel there are three key societal members who can make a difference. They are the father, the mother and the teacher.” – Abdul Kalam

“अगर किसी देश को भ्रष्टाचार मुक्त होना है और सुंदर मस्तिष्क का देश बनना है, तो मुझे दृढ़ता से लगता है कि तीन प्रमुख सामाजिक सदस्य हैं जो एक अंतर ला सकते हैं। वे हैं पिता, माता और शिक्षक। – अब्दुल कलाम


Approach

Start with basic intro with referring to mineral oil distribution and then explain how uneven distribution has several multiple implications.

Introduction

Corruption is considered to be originated from the minds of the people. Peoples’ thinking, ethical values, conduct and behaviour all makes a man either corrupt or be honest and uninfluenced.

Body

  • The basic and permanent solution to corruption involves inculcating more and more ethical and moral values since childhood that’s building character.
  • Character building since childhood is influenced by Parents, teachers, family and society etc. who play vital role in holistic development of the child.

Better socialisation by parents and teachers for corruption free:

  • A child is the reflection of her mother. Being the best friend and first teacher of child mother influences the child from walk to talk. Mother is the wealth of information for child.
  • The child learns love compassion, forgiveness, humanity, equality, kind heartedness, respect, generosity and ethics from her mother and such traits reduce corruption.
  • Father is the role model for most of the children. Qualities of leadership, responsibility, discipline, consistency, fearlessness etc. are developed in children under the influence of father.
  • Good parental support helps child to be positive, healthy and good life long learner and behave in ethical manner involving moral values in entire his/her life.
  • A child’s first lesson on right and wrong comes from his/her parents – when he/she is taught not to steal, never lie and not to intentionally harm others.
  • Teachers have a very important responsibility of laying the foundation of an individual’s future.
  • They are the most important nation builders as they are not only responsible for the intellectual nourishment of young minds but also for moulding the overall personality of children.
  • At young impressionable ages, teaching them about discipline, being responsible for their actions; inculcating values like team spirit, sharing, fair play, cooperation a teacher sets the stage for a responsible citizen of the country.

Conclusion

Therefore, the nurturing done by parents and teachers determines the course of a nation whether it will be made of upright, moral and argumentative Indians or dull-minds ready to compromise on their ethics.
