Essay on Responsibilities of a Good Citizen
Citizen is a term widely understood and used for a person who lives in any country and holding a specific identification number. That number shows that this person is belonging to this country or that country. This is a general definition of a citizen, but I was thinking something else. See, now the world is changing and this world has now become a global village, it is very easy for anyone to see or have a conversation with any person of any community of any country!
The citizen is a global citizen now, identification numbers are just one identity, one number of recognition, but when it comes to communication, humane grounds, taking care of each other then it demands a high level of patience, tolerance and open mindset to cater each other in a befitting manner. What we all need to do is to minimize the threats of racism, caste, creed and sense of superiority. The game of putting others down should be curtailed to eradication level. Being a global citizen, it is our duty to:
- Remain polite towards others, let us listen to the problems of others.
- Don’t be judgmental for it kills humanity at large. Let us think before we come to a conclusion and pass comments on others! This other could be your family member, friend, or any bypasser.
- Extend a helping hand towards the ones who are in need, by need I do not mean the financial need, sometimes people just need a sympathetic ear to listen to their issues and many times they are not in need of any solution, they just want to vent out the pressure they kept inside them, God knows for how long!
- Do interrupt whenever any insane, stupid, and mean thing comes in your radius, it could be insulting behavior, offensive comment on any social media platform or in our daily life routines, wherever you see the evil, try to nip the evil in the bud. We should be torch-bearer of positivity and goodness and not of negative or becoming a bee who chooses to sit only on garbage, be a honeybee, reach out to flowers, take nectar and turn them into honey. In short, make yourself beneficial for humanity all in sundry.
