Erosion of morals

A good character is the most important thing in life. According to John Ruskin, losing money or health is no loss at all when compared to the loss of one’s character.

It is important to develop one’s moral character and ingrain good ethical principles from childhood. And this must primarily be done by the family when the individual is still a child, as well as later on, at school and through the education system.

Through education, a person must be taught how to behave with others, respect their elders, and importantly, women. But unfortunately, it seems that children and young boys are not being taught to respect women in our society, which is why stalking and sexual harassment of women have become very common.

We need to recognise that this is a major problem in our society today. And we need to realise that such widespread mistreatment and harassment of girls cannot be tolerated anymore.

Each one of us, whenever we witness such incidents, must speak up so that these incidents do not go unnoticed or unpunished.
