About 600 crore people live in this huge world. They live in different countries, big and small. Those countries have many different cultures and social systems.

What is morality: Morality is a sense of principle, it is a human quality that is made up of many other qualities. People follow certain rules very consciously based on their family, society, state and religion. All these rules and regulations imposed by the society or the state affect the livelihood of the people. The tendency to follow these rules, the mentality, the practice of principles is morality.
What are values: Many people think of ethics and values as one. But the two issues are not one. Values are formed from the human experience gained as a result of living together in the same society for a long time. The basis of values is religion, philosophy, long-cherished behavior-belief, society's own ideology and rules and regulations. Values are the ideas of the people of the society about the good-evil, wrong-right, desired, unwelcome things in the context of the existing customs and traditions in the society.
The position of morality and values in the present society: There is a proverb in Bengal that ‘the day goes well, the day comes bad. People used to believe that value is greater than wealth. But now this idea has changed. Everyone is running after money and wealth. The competition to leave one behind and the other ahead has blinded everyone. Everyone is sacrificing their own virtues and values. So now everything from the lowest to the highest levels of society is drowned in corruption, misdeeds and immoral activities. People have exiled morality and values in such a way that even the heads of state of different countries are going to jail every now and then for corruption. Every aspect of the social and economic system is plagued by unprincipledness today. The practice of values is now ridiculed as the work of fools. There was a time when everyone respected a poor but principled man. And now money is his honor. That is why we respect and welcome bribe-takers, corrupt and usurious moneylenders. If this situation continues, morality and values will have to be found in fairy tales a few days later.Man's first educational institution was his family.

Attempts to blindly imitate the culture of others must be consciously avoided. We learn a lot from the media. Therefore, the media should promote issues from which people can learn moral values and learn about values. In order to spread moral education and awaken values among the people, various steps have to be taken and implemented in public and private initiatives and every person has to be aware of himself.

It keeps people away from doing injustice. The person who is educated in moral education, the person who respects his own values is always flawless.
