"Every individual can either uplift himself or ruin himself by his own good or bad conduct respectively. Therefore, every individual by his own actions, can become his own well wisher or his own enemy." [Bhagvadgeeta 6-5].
This statement of Lord Krishna is applicable to all human beings. Many times a person who has suffered any loss or any difficulty accuses that it was caused by others, but on many occasions an individual can come up in life or stand condemned on account of his good or bad behaviour or actions respectively.
Mercifully, God has given the capacity to every individual to distinguish what is good or what is bad, what is Dharma and what is Adharma, what is moral and what is immoral, what is good conduct and what is bad conduct, what is helpful or harmful to fellow human beings and what is good to him/her, parents or spouse and children. But inspite of this, man is found to do what he should not do, or desirous of not doing good to himself and get into trouble. In other words, in many cases, troubles are created for downfall by individuals on account of their own is misdeeds.
This important message must be understood and followed by National leaders, parents, teachers and all those who have come to occupy higher status or positions in a society; mainly teachers on whom the burden of ensuring creation of good citizens for building the future of the Nation. They should understand and follow the mandate in letters and spirit. They must teach or train individuals about their do's and don't's. Time once lost will never come back. Therefore, every individual should be made to understand to spend his time, energy or money in a useful manner. The desire to come up in life must be inculcated in individuals. It should be generated by making efforts in that regard, for good and desired qualities would not come on their own. Such an education must commence in every home at pre-primary level. Once the knowledge that every individual can become a useful member of the society by his own efforts is made known to him and the desire to come up is imparted in individuals, it will grow automatically. Not only he becomes a useful human being but also influences others, particularly youngsters, to come up in life and work as a useful human being and thereby becoming an asset to the society instead of becoming a liability. This is the biggest problem the Nation is facing namely, the dearth or shortage of youth who are learned, whose character is good, who have not fallen to bad habits by way of becoming alcohol addicts, who indulge in making sexual assault on girls and woman, though it is regarded as the most heinous offence which will ruin the entire life of the offenders and the victims. It is for this reason, in Chapter-IV of the Constitution the following directives have been incorporated:
" Certain principles of policy to be followed by the State. The State shall, in particular, direct its policy towards securing .......
That childhood and youth are protected against exploitation and against moral and material abandonment."
" Duty of the State to raise the level of nutrition and the standard of living and to improve public health. The State shall regard the raising of the level of nutrition and the standard of living of its people and the improvement of public health as among its primary duties and, in particular, the State shall endeavour to bring about prohibition of the consumption except for medicinal purposes of intoxicating drinks and of drugs which are injurious to health."
