he decline in values ​​in our society is a collective lament for us. All nations have some values that help them reach the pinnacle of glory and differentiate themselves from others.No country has ever consciously or unconsciously trampled on these values and called itself a valueless society.

But in a trance, they lose them. And once the values go down, you can't get them back. In our society, values are either forgotten or otherwise they have taken the back seat.

It's not a one-time thing. It's a long-term problem. In the distant past, every nook and corner of the Kashmir Valley was a center of values that the world admired and followed. Kindness, patience, love, forgiveness, honesty, etc . used to be our hallmarks, but now they are rarely seen. From adults to children, everyone is in the same boat. If so, there must be some reason behind it. In the following lines, let us shed light on the causes responsible for the erosion of values in our society.

The first is materialism. In anticipation of accumulating more and more, we have lost touch with reality; our values. Greed for profit has made us a machine and we no longer care about values, be they spiritual or religious. In today's world, a free market economy works. The harder you work, the more you earn, and vice versa. Money brings happiness and peace. It's just that the values ​​don't fill the stomach, so they are least preferred. In this situation, values lose their status and people who are on the top rung of creation become living corpses.

The second is science and technology. A man's goal in life is comfort. Science and technology are of little value. But they still bring happiness. For statistics, however, the long-term impact is far-reaching, but always painful. When life becomes difficult and you have no reason to live for it, you finally choose science and technology, sacrificing value on the altar of comfort and luxury. Valueless people can make a lot of money, so why should a value-lover fall into decay?

The third is the secular approach. Now we have become so worldly that we consider any religion or code of conduct, old or new, to be worthless. Disguised as secularism, we have crossed all borders and are living in the liberal zone. As a result, people can now do whatever they want. It has created a negative notion of freedom. A driverless vehicle isn't going anywhere. We are the same. We live happily and comfortably in a mundane world created by our imagination

The fourth is an ungodly society. We believe that God is not necessary to keep the world in balance. It works alone and needs no supervision. Everyone is created free, by whom whatsoever. Life is about enjoying these moments here and dying, never to rise again. The value is irrelevant in this situation. Believing in the Hereafter will make us conscious. Each step will be carefully executed. We will be careful when dealing with others. But when it evaporates from our minds and lives, we suddenly lose control and start trampling on cherished values, the result being chaos and confusion.

Fifth and last, is the distortion of religion. Every religion teaches some form of code of conduct. But so-called religious advocates manipulate it for personal gain. Rituals and habits are useless without a clean heart and soul. All the organs of our body, such as eyes, ears, tongue, skin and nose, must always be bound by rules and regulations. Rituals have specific purposes. But caring for others and thinking of others is a real life, a life worth living. Religion preaches values ​​that make society worth living.

So, the need of the hour is to live a life of values. In the current chaos and turmoil, humanities and values ​​play a big role. Frustration and depression end when we try to live as humans. Let us resolve that we will try our best to live our lives full of values.
