“Moral values among the people is declining in the present world. It is the major reason for all the social evils we are witnessing across the globe. Looting of money by the so-called literates, corruption by prestigious companies, incidents of rapes and other sexual harassment, violence against children and women, falling of buildings before its inauguration are all the ill-effects of the declining moral values among people. Hence, there is an immediate need of inculcating moral values for a sustainable and secure society,” he said.

As literates, it is our duty to uphold the moral values and become a model for others. If we and the next generation want to have good health and live happily in a secure environment we need to adopt moral values.”
