Importance of Discipline in Life

 Discipline is the process of training oneself in obedience, self-control, skill etc. Discipline is the basis of the whole universe. There would be utter chaos without discipline. Discipline should be inculcated from a very young age. Talents blossom in a disciplined person. Discipline is important in all the spheres of life like educational institutions, family, military departments, social and political life of a nation, games and sports etc. absence of it can lead to failure, defeat and backwardness. All should live in harmony, co-operation, doing the duties with devotion and dedication and maintaining self-discipline. This will bring progress and prosperity in the nation.

Nature provides the best example of discipline in life. In nature all the planets move in their orbit; the seasons change in accordance with a set order, day and night follow each other at regular intervals, Man must take lessons from Nature. Our life should be punctuated with discipline. It is in this sense that K. Santhanam defined National Integrity as the conscientious and faithful performance of duties and obligations by every section of the people,

Discipline is of prime importance in every sphere of man's life. In a family, members have to work as a cohesive team under the charge of the 'pater familias' i.e., the father or the bread-winner. But if the sense of discipline is not instilled into the minds of the members, each going his own way in his own manner, life in the family becomes a living hell, in our social life, we are required to follow certain norms of behavior and make a harmonious adjustment between our rights and duties. Without this our social life will become a mess and will soon go out of gear. Even in small day-to-day things like walking along the road, boarding a bus, baying a ticket from the counter or doing, or getting a work done in a govern­ment office, citizens must show a sense of discipline.
Discipline is necessary both for the teacher and the students. A teacher is the leader of his charges, He must possess and main­tain an intellectual and moral discipline of a high order. However learned and scholarly a teacher may be, but if in his personal life he leads an undisciplined life, he will never be able to win and com­mand the respect and obedience of students. Similarly, only a dedi­cated and disciplined student can carne out a brilliant career for himself and serve the motherland. Wanton indulgence in indiscipline, strikes, demonstrations, drug-addiction, beating up of teachers in examinations, molestation of girls, boycotting classes, defying the authorities and fighting pitched battles with the police, which has become the bane of student life in free India of today are, in a way, the negation of the-very theme and purpose of the student life. Dis­ciplined students are the pillars of a nation's strength and with their strength of character they can lift a nation to the great heights of progress.
Some people entertain the erroneous belief that discipline is a constraint on liberty and self-fulfillment. They are averse to disciplined and they reach very sharply whenever some restrictions are im­posed. This is not correct. This type of freedom degenerates into license. We must realize that discipline alone can ensure all-round progress and advancement of the country.
Infact, discipline is the basic principle behind the progress and smooth working of an individual and a nation. It is essential for the preservation of social values. But discipline should be inborn and self-imposed rather than externally imposed. It should be a tenor and mode of life based upon moral basis rather than an exter­nal compulsion caused by an unscrupulous and power-hungry autho­ritarian government. It should be taught by education and enlightenment.
