  35. 35. •Good citizenship is sometimes viewed as requiring both intellectual skills (such as critical thinking) and participatory skills (such as deliberating civilly, monitoring the government, building coalitions, managing conflict peacefully and fairly, and petitioning, speaking or testifying before public bodies).
  36. 36. •A good citizen is one who properly fulfills his or her role as a citizen. •Theodore Roosevelt said, "The first requisite of a good citizen in this Republic of ours is that he shall be able and willing to pull his weight”
  37. 37. •Legal Obligations No one can be a responsible citizen without staying within the law. So to be a responsible citizen, we must respect these laws and abide by them. Harming others or others’ property does not equate to being a good citizen.
  38. 38. •Social Obligations To be a responsible citizen, we should help our communities and those who live in them. So, being a responsible citizen can encompass things such as volunteering.
  39. 39. •Moral Obligations The environmental problems society is facing are of our own making and we all have a moral obligation to do what we can to change this. So by living as environmentally friendly life as possible, we can help fulfil our moral obligations of being a responsible citizen.
  40. 40. Don’t disrespect your country Agreed, not many things are right with our country - right from the education and health system to our politicians. However, it still doesn’t mean we talk ill about it. Do we talk ill about our family in front of others just because we are mad at them? No. Dissing or insulting our own country is like piling dirt on the plate you eat your food on. So as far as possible, let’s project a positive image about our country.
  41. 41. Follow rules Rules are there for a reason. If they weren’t in place, this planet would’ve become a jungle. Always ensure you follow rules; be it traffic rules on the road or filing your taxes or standing in a queue for movie tickets. Do things like they are to be done. If you follow rules, others might also start following them. It doesn’t mean you don’t question things when they don’t seem right, for example, if someone at the airport says it is a rule that you pay an airport tax before boarding your flight, you have the right to question them.
  42. 42. •Become more sensitive It is very important that we become more sensitive. Not only is it very important, it is also what makes us human. You don’t really have to go to a school to learn how to be sensitive. It is fairly easy. In trains and elevators, wait for the people inside to alight first; don’t honk on the road unless absolutely needed; keep your cell phones on silent mode in important places, like work or a bank, or a hospital. Say please and thank you often.
  43. 43. •Be helpful If you see someone needing help, on the road or anywhere else, don’t hesitate to help. Case in point, the Delhi gang- rape episode. Maybe if some passersby had taken her to the hospital earlier, it could have been possible to save her life. You never know when it could be one of your own. So whenever possible, reach out and try and help people. Even animals do, and they are supposed to be without feelings.
  44. 44. •Don’t litter There have been a million public service messages on this issue and we still find people littering: throwing empty chocolate wrappers or juice cartons from cars; spitting; throwing cigarette butts, paper and what not. But how come when the same people go abroad, they are on their best behavior?
  45. 45. •Agreed, there won’t be a dustbin everywhere you go. So keep the trash with you until you return home and then dispose it. In case that is not possible, then find a corner where you can dump it. Don’t act like you own the place and throw it in the middle of the road.
