Rights and responsibilities should be treated equallyAs a human being, we have some rights and some responsibilities. As a father or a son or a mother or a daughter, we have some responsibilities and rights. As a citizen of this country also we have some rights and responsibilities. Many of us will have the tendency to fight for our rights. But we will forget about our responsibilities. We talk about our freedom of speech and freedom of living etc. But we will not feel that we should not encroach into the freedom of others.
We say enjoying the richness of our father is our right but when we have to take care of our parents, we will not think that is our responsibility. . Lord Rama was having the right to become the King but he thought that keeping up the word given by his father was his responsibility and went to the forest leaving the kingdom to his brother. This should be the attitude of a good human being.
We always think about what the nation has given to us but never think about what we have given to the nation. This attitude is not new and it is very old. It is not a correct trait. A person who is having progressive thinking should treat other's right as his responsibility. A good citizen may fully aware of his rights but he should understand his responsibilities in serving the nation for a greater cause.
Oliver Wendell Holmes said, "Your freedom to move your hand ends where my nose begins." A true human being should always treat rights and responsibilities equally.
