All of us have enormous capabilities. In many of us however our achievements fail to correlate with our potential because of lack of self-discipline-the effort needed to channel our energy for productive uses. To maximise your effectiveness you must “learn to put your nose to the grindstone work against boredom and learn to take the long hard way in life rather than the short easy way”. Here are a few suggestions that focus on “How to do what you want to do.” Take risks. It is important to realise that nothing in life is achieved unless you risk something. That s how self-confidence develops. Every chance you take offers you valuable spinoffs in terms of learning. Earn a reward. Sometime back I had to face the rather unenviable task of preparing for two examinations simultaneously. I had to be ruthless in driving myself from one goal to another. Hard nosed attitude saw me sail through the courses. I rewarded myself at the end of it indulging in my favourite pastime and taking a short holiday.

The Law is an ass  declared Mr. Bumble in “Oliver Twist” and it often seems he was right. For punishment does not always fit the crime and it rarely happens that a prison term reforms a criminal”. Consider the following two cases. The first one had happened in a village in Madurai District. One Gopal Yadav a hard-core criminal undergoing life sentence in the Madurai Prison came out on bail for two days to perform the last rites of his mother. But he was rearrested on the same evening on the charges of murdering his neighbour s son to settle old scores. The second case too came to Madurai Court recently. Deserted by her husband a drunkard his grief-stricken wife mixed rat poison in the food and gave it to her four children aged between and 9 years. Before she could swallow the same food she was unable to bear the pitiable sight of her children writhing in pain. She rushed them to hospital where she disclosed everything. She was able to save the lives of the first three children but the law of the country awarded her two years imprisonment (later commuted to one year) on the charges of plotting to kill her children. Would you say women like her are a danger to the society ? Would you call them criminals ? It is high time that we found other ways of registering our disapproval of wrong doing. To imprison the bad is expedient -when they are dangerous. To imprison the mad and the merely sad as we do is not only unnecessary it is uncivilised.
