Being ‘Moral Education’ in curriculum always teased everyone, though it is a simple subject that needed less effort and scored good marks. All you need to think about is ‘you are the best personality in the world’ and then write the answer. The subject is quite out of league from the rest of subjects like math, science, social studies that needed different kind of attitude to learn. Moral education is always intended to enter into our mindsets like ‘what should be the characteristics of a good person?’ The subject may be graded in A or B unlike other subjects those are graded by marks out of 100; but it plays an important role in developing our personality.
‘Moral Education’ is about telling us what should be done by a sacred soul, what can be the limits of perfect character. The images in books play entertaining role, and it is nicely portrayed in bunch of smooth pages.
Moral Education for us:
For most of us it is a book of stories and lesson of life. It teaches that ‘monkey copies you’ through a story of a cap seller, it teaches us: ‘Greed brings about disaster’ through a greedy dog's story, it teaches ‘intelligent decision’ through a thirsty crow's story. These things are too much to adapt in childhood. It teaches us things those are done in life through many stories like that, to tell us what can be done easily, the motive of life, the ideals those can be followed, and the messages worth thinking. As per the part of education the subject is full of lessons for life.
In real life:
Moral Education subject is sometimes optional in schools, but the subject is worth teaching to students in their childhood for a better personality growth.

These values bring us honor and respect from the society. Mahatma Gandhi, Subhash Chandra Bose, Rabindranath Tagore, Swami Vivekanand, Jawaharlal Nehru, Mother Teresa, Osho – Rajnish etc. were the people of value and still respected and honored after death and so on. They always supported others and helped others; most of them influenced the whole world with their characters.
