Value of Hard Work
(The following speech is perfect for 1 min. to 1.05 min)
Nations flourish not on slogans but on hard and sustained work. This is truer today than at any other time in history, and truer of our Country than of any other. With increasing populations that tend to concentrate more and more in cities, problems have multiplied tenfold, and this is specially so in our country. Further, keeping these vastly increased population even at a tolerably good standard of living, we need more and more of technology and science, more and more discipline and team-work, and consequently, more and more work in schools, colleges, factories and fields in fact, in every walk of life including offices. The fact is that this is our necessity, not merely for progress, but for sheer survival. “Developed” nations even today work harder than we do. With them, work methodical, systematic work, carried out punctually and without external compulsion is a habit, very much as sloth, casualness, unpunctuality, the tendency to work less and demand more, are’ deeply ingrained habits with us. That is why Nehru’s slogan of “Aram Haram Hai” is perhaps the central need of today.
Q. How can the habits of hard work be inculcated among children?
A. People should be made to understand the disadvantages being lazy and idle. If we talk about the children, they should be given age appropriate responsibilities. Like maintaining their own belongings keeping their uniform ready, doing their home work etc. Timely supervision is also required.
