Ancient Indian wisdom teaches us that our first responsibility is to the community, second to our family and third to our self. A society starts degenerating when this order is reserved. Social responsibility ought to be the moral obligation of every citizen. Responsibly and freedom go hand in hand. A sign of good citizen is that he is willing to pull his own weight. Societies are not destroyed by the activities of rascals but by the inactivity of good people. If they can tolerate destruction by being inactive, how can they be good? The question is, are they discharging their social responsibility?
