The Duties of the Citizens towards the Nation

Citizen-it primarily means someone who lives in a city. But nowadays, the same term is used to identify people of a nation. Thus, in today's world, citizen stands for nationality.

Every society has some rules and regulations to be maintained by its citizens in order to take their motherland to the zenith in every field. These rules are there to maintain peace, harmony and unity among them. Some of these laws are written down and punishments. are presented for disobeying them. But there are a set of laws and rules which are not written down, though they are as important as the others. Peace and harmony of the society depends upon the proper observance of both these set of rules. A good and responsible citizen takes as much care of these unwritten laws of conduct as of the written laws.

Unfortunately, in our society, the latter is not at all cared of. Still, many of us throw banana or orange peels on road. Spitting at road corners and corners of stairs are a habit of some people. We never think of the consequences that can be caused by these peels. Not only does it make the street dirty, but it also gives rise to a painful time in a person's life! We usually waste filtered water by leaving taps open, and later on complain the authorities for shortage of water. We forget to switch off lights and fans when not in use and then shout standing before electricity offices during power cuts. We stand in front of doors of public vehicles though there is space to sit, never thinking of the difficulties faced by the other passengers

Don't these examples exhibit a lack of civic sense? A good citizen not only avoids breaking the rules himself, but also ensures that others don't break them. We expect peace, harmony and happiness from our society, but it's not possible without the co-operation of its citizens?

As today's children are tomorrow's future, so they must ensure that they help the authorities in maintaining law and order and peace by all means and for the general happiness of all.

While the human race is locked inside the house to fight COVID 19, a pandemic which held the entire world hostage in unprecedented and unparalleled manners, while one is even debarred to visit neighborhood milk booth and one is prohibited to cross over to another district in a same state, every piece of literary work is an expression of paranoia in one way or other. View of shillong from Shillong Peak Nation is facing most harsh form of lockdown, and consequent toll on human, psychological as well as physiological, is pushing to the limit of tolerance. At this crossroad in life, picturesque lush green meadow, hills covered with pine trees, fresh air and country roads driven me nostalgic and take me far away from new normal, every time I remembered of Shillong. ‘Scotland of India’ title it rightfully defended perched in East Khasi Hill district of Meghalaya, Shillong lies at north eastern corner on Indian Map.

Pandemic from the eyes of a Villager

I am a city born and have lived in cities my entire life. I have stayed in cities like Bhubaneswar, Kolkata, Mumbai and Bangalore and always had the best facilities that could be provided to a person. So, every time there was national wide concern, I always saw it from the point of view of city life.
