ON DUTY AND DISCIPLINE

The disciplined speech for example, entrances the listeners and can even change the dynamic into static and the static into the other. The disciplined character, meaning thereby sum total of well-developed and nobly-groomed traits not, only impresses angels, but also make them serve you at your door. The disciplined person, therefore, cares none, fears nothing and expects nothing.

His sole subject, concludes Lord Tennyson, lies in the performance of his duty regardless of its consequences, in one of his immortal poems called "The Charge of Light Brigade". Duty expects no interpretation, nor alteration in the mode of execution to suit one's whims and fancies. It demands total self effacement, together with absolute, unqualified and ungrudging surrender to the master. Doubting the legitimacy, or questioning the genuineness of the order is the deadliest foe of discipline. Speculation about its outcome should not be allowed to peep into the performance. Only "Do or Die" attitude should pervade the whole atmosphere i.e., questioning 'Why' or 'let me think' stance be banished once for all. The 'Ever Ready Spirit' is the soul of discipline. Such attitude brings laurels to the disciplined and make them the pillars of light, for the whole mankind. Their glory will never fade, nor is their action forgotten ever!

The poet sings in praise of 'The Light Brigade' - a battalion of ideal soldiers, numbering barely 200, that won everlasting glory during the Crimean war, when the Allied Forces fought against Russia in 1854. They were a disciplined body of cavaliers who breathed in discipline and breathed out loyalty. They proclaimed, "Ours is not to make reply, or reason why, ours is only to do and die" Marvelous! Are they not the personification of discipline? They were prepared to ride into the 'Valley of death' or 'the mouth of Hell', at any time without any sign of disobedience. So their name went down in history as an unparallel example of loyalty and discipline. Besides, glory, honour and immortality went to live with them for ever.
