Rights and Duties of a Student
In reality, there are no rights without corresponding duties and no doubt without corresponding rights. The condition of all the society is displayed in the condition of its students. If society, also including the government does not protect the rights of the people, it can be impossible for the people to perform their duty. A healthy and progressive social organization itself can develop a healthy and progressive people. Let us apply these principles to the students who are the most precious charge and the greatest responsibility of society.
A hungry man will not be able to work properly, so a hungry student may not learn or study properly. Among the first essential rights of a student include the food, clothing and shelter. The home as well as the neighbourhood must not have a vulgarizing and debasing effect and receive love and kindness and understanding. Teachers who are aware of their job, courses of study relavant to the ages and temperaments of students, adequate balance between work and play, sensible exercise and assertion of authority along with sympathy and helpfulness on the part of teachers and elders, are among the just requirements and rights of students. Again, students shall make mistake almost as a matter of right.
Which are all the corresponding duties of students?To be obedient and respectful to their elders and teachers, to be eager to learn, to work honestly, to speak and write clearly and without mistakes, to be truthful, honest and to the point, to be lively and happy, to learn self-control, to prevent against the development of bad habits, are among the duties of students. To disregard disorderliness and slovenliness , to cultivate good manners and decorum too includes in the list of student’s duties. It must be remembered by students that discipline and decent behaviour are of great fun and not difficult tasks. Love of knowledge and the adventure of mind should go side by side with the culture of the emotions. It is essential to feed the head as well as heart. The spirit of sportsmanship, love of firmness, disregard of injustice, patience and moderation, loving studies and not carrying on with it as an undesirable task are also among the duties and responsibilities of students.
Finally, let students perform their duty and also love and relish the work they are to take care off. If they happen to do so they may not only become good students but happy students.
