Obedience to Social Rules
Before three decades, every person of the community could not be a citizen. Those people who were serving in government are considered to be the citizen of the country. They were the elite group of people working for the state. Now, the criteria of having citizenship have changed in our country. People having the age group of 16 and above can have the citizenship and enjoy every right of the state.
Nowadays, citizens are given citizenship card (in Nepali- Nagarikta) and those who are born in our country and yet to be a citizen are identified with their birth certificate. Birth Certificate is one the important document to issue citizenship in Nepal.
An ideal citizen is essential for the prosperity of a society and the nation. An ideal citizen is that person who is qualified, hard-working, selfless, patriot, helpful, and is a social worker. Healthy body, mind, and soul are the best qualities of any citizen. A community can be strong if the people are healthier and a well maintains communities can be the boon for national development. So, it's the citizens who are responsible for making our nation developed and better place.
Society has different groups of people. For example, In our society, there are many people who belong to different castes, creed and have various religious perspective. There is the significance of each me member of our society. Every occupation has their important role to make the community the better place to live. There are also many places like Temple, roads, water-taps, trees, parks and historical places that need to be protected and preserved time and often. Only the citizens who are fully conscious of their roles and responsibilities can be role models for social development and preserve unities identities.
Besides, some of the social places are bigger in size than a community. They need special attention to flourish among different nations. For example, There are National Parks, Wildlife Reserves and historical places like Lumbini, Bhaktapur Durbar Square, and Pashupati temple. To maintain these places, lots of collective effort has to be done. There should be the involvement of groups of communities and personnel from a local and national government. These places should be kept neat and clean and remain peaceful throughout all seasons so that many more national and international visitors can visit them easily. The obvious benefit will ultimately get by citizens who care. The internal and international tourism will get boosted and income source of everyone will be uplifted. So, we should put collective effort to well maintain such tourist areas on the daily basis.
Every member of the society is bound by the certain set of rules of their society. Such rules are often known as social rules. These rules may differ from one society to another. For example, In Brahmin society, 'Bartabandha', the holy ceremony and pray silently every morning can be the rule, but in Tharu society, it may not be relevant. Similarly, the ceremony called ' Bela-Bibaha' which is so famous in Newar society cannot be relevant in Gurung society. People have a different set of rules and regulations. Yet, they lived together, respecting each one of cultures. We all know one slogan,"Unite we rise and divide we fall". So, It's all responsibility to give equal space to everyone's feelings and celebrations.
Rules can be unique and it can be varied from place and time. It's not always compulsory that each and every rule of every society are for the betterment. Some of them like superstitions and blind faiths can be so dangerous and be the reason for pushing our society in destruction. For example, the loathsome practice in some places of our country to torture females, alleged to be witches is very bad. This sort of rules should be strictly banned as they have been always responsible for making our family and society complicated. We must unite and fight against them. Abolishment of such bad rules at this time could be "Prevention is better than cure" as the coming generation would get to be more civilized and develop our nation.
Social norms and values of the society are also the rules and regulations. Many good traditions like respecting parents and teachers as gods, loving sister and brothers as our own children, keeping a good relationship with friends and relatives should be given more priority every time. In same way telling the truth, respecting the elders and loving the brothers, not stealing and not fighting are some good sets of religious codes of our society. We should be obedient to such codes because it helps our society to be more developed, stronger and more disciplined.
Let's be more precise in knowing the rules of the society. Our school is the essential body of our society. With the knowledge we gained in school, any society can be developed and prosperous. The school is the holiest place in each society. It has its own set of rules which anyone should practice in and outside of school.
As soon as we entered the school compound, we must think of the school discipline. Classrooms and school compound should be neat and clean. We should always dispose of dust like eraser dust, torn pieces of papers and wrappers in dustbin properly. Scratching in desk and bench is the sign of bad student so we should always try to clean our place ourselves. The water taps should be cracked well to stop the flow of water. We should not pluck the flowers, buds, and petals. We should do our homework sincerely and tell truths to our teacher in every case.
Running here and there unnecessarily, jumping, wrestling, shouting and singing is the not allowed in classrooms. The classroom is like the temple for all of us. So, we should better care about it and maintain peace inside. Every student should be participative and have to take part in extra activities like chess, Debate, Badminton, Football, Long Jump, Racing, Dancing, swimming and other sports. These types of activities will increase the creativity of students and make them active in every accepts. So, those who follows the rules of school obediently always succeed and remain happy in his/her life.
Similarly, loving junior and respecting the senior is a most important rule of school. Making disputes among friends and fighting with them is the biggest crime of student. We should never think of creating conflicts. There is one beautiful saying in English, "What you give to others, you will get the same" . So, We should love as much as we can do to others. Teachers are greater than God who lightens up the thinking capacity of our mind. With knowledge gained from school, we could live happily each and every situation. So, respecting teachers and respecting knowledge is another important social rules for all of us.
Social rules are a boon for social development. A social development like the clean environment, well infrastructures, better roads, peaceful, clean and green society will not be possible without a good attitude of people living in that society. In today's scenario, we see some society has developed so fast and others still have many lacking in them. The secret of having success and gaining prosperity lie on one secret, i.e. "How effectively a society has been following its good social rules?".
An ideal citizen is that person who is qualified, hard-working, selfless, patriot, helpful, and is a social worker. Making our nation developed and better place is the role which is played by a citizen. An ideal citizen is important for the prosperity of a society and the nation.
A person who takes birth in a state and lives there permanently enjoying social and political rights is the citizen of the state.In our country, the suitable age to get citizenship is 16 and above.
Here, telling the truth, respecting the elders and loving the brothers, not stealing and not fighting are some good sets of religious codes of our society. We should be obedient to such codes because it helps our society to be more developed, stronger and more disciplined.
