ON DUTY AND DISCIPLINE

Does that mean they are inferior, or useless, or they can be done away with? Certainly not. They are as important and indispensable as the others. So every piece of work is sacred and work-worthy. Attaching impiety to any is nothing short of barbarity on the part of any that does so, for it reflects idiocy and immaturity, gross and grotesque.

Therefore, you must do your duty to the best of your ability. Lapses and flaws, dereliction, or delaying tactics, mind you, cut at the root of perfection. Postponement must be postponed, nay deserves to be dismissed once for all from your mind. Aim at perfection. Make promptness and flawlessness to be the indispensable accessories to it. Understand, perfection is a celestial commodity, hard to obtain. More than fetching instantaneous appreciation, it pays rich dividends in the long run. Sure, single-minded devotion, systematic execution, and sincerity of purpose would complete the arc of perfection and make you a remarkable person worthy to be emulated everywhere. Having accepted the God-given one, you must develop respect for it first and foremost.


Mode of execution needs explanation now. You should strictly adhere to the rules, however taxing, or otherwise they may be. As long as you owe allegiance to the office, you must carry out its obligations without fear or favour. Personal comforts, or future advantages have to be eliminated from the picture. Your sole aim is to execute the given piece of work to the best of
your capacity, at the cost of life, if occasion demands. You should not weigh up the causes and effects or suggest pros and cons in terms of your convenience, or benefits. Play your role magnanimously and be off the stage gracefully. That brings you credit. For you know, work is its own reward.
