Responsibility/ Duty


What is Responsibility/Duty

According to Oxford dictionary Responsibility is the state or fact of having a duty to deal with something or of having control over someone.

Everyone heard about responsibility. We know that some people are responsible, others are irresponsible. Each of us at least once in our lifetime has heard such a phrase “You are irresponsible" or “You don’t have a sense of responsibility".

   Irresponsibility is one of the main reason for unrest in the family. If anyone of the family members does not execute his/her responsibility, problems will be born in that family. We all know more or less about our responsibility. Even if we close our eyes, we can feel the presence of the sun. In the same way, we all know what is our responsibility. But some lazy, selfish, self-centred, opportunist and too much clever persons avoid their duty. Then problems come off not only in the family but everywhere in school, college, office, hospital, club etc.

   I have seen many family problems which originated for the irresponsibility of the family members.

1. I have seen a family where a teenager son does not cultivate his responsibility. The primary duty of a student is to learn and acquire knowledge. Students will go to school. They will learn their homework and prepare for the exam. Students will learn discipline. They will respect their elders, parents and their teacher. In the evening they will go to play in the field after doing their homework. Besides Students also have a great responsibility to help out the less fortunate members of the society by way of social work. They can offer great services by teaching illiterate children of nearby villages.
 But the student whom I am talking about is totally different. So their family always remain worried. He does not want to go to school regularly. He never learns his homework. He does not listen to his parents. Instead of playing, he goes to the river bank and takes intoxication with his spoilt friends. They do not respect elders.

2. I have seen another family where their mother does not execute her responsibility or duty. She works nothing. On the other hand, her husband works in the field every day with his labours. Actually, she is the only daughter of her parents and she has been given a lot of paddy land by her parents. So she considers herself owner and her husband and children slave. So she works nothing. Even she does not cook. She let her daughter and sons cook. Her neighbours wonder what a mother she is!. How can she let her children cook and she does nothing. Neighbours call her bossy mother or selfish mother. Sometimes her husband cannot tolerate. So the neighbours very often hear the quarrel in their family. No one utter a word on her. She said to her husband, " You have got a lot of property free of cost. Just work and eat. What a lucky you are! Your friends need to look for work everyday".

3. In a certain club, a cashier spent all the cash of the club fund. So the tumult arose. He was imposed fine but he could not pay back. Eventually the organisation collapsed for long 6(six) years. Now the club is rebuilt with some new members. Here the cashier did not perform his duty properly.

There are many instances. Irresponsibility is the main reasons for such problems.People are not born with the sense of responsibility. It is something every person should cultivate in themselves. It should become a part of one’s personality. Lack of such a trait of character or even its absolute absence was never considered to be a positive feature. When you are responsible it is easier to gain the respect of the people and to take a decent place in society.

  Everyone has to execute 10/12 responsibilities. Because he/she may be a father, mother, son, daughter, uncle, aunt, grandfather, grandmother, relative, teacher, student, doctor, nurse, officer, clerk, engineer, minister, hero, heroine, shopkeeper and so on.
