Indian Value System with Special Reference to the Holy Quran
FARISHTUN SE BEHTAR HAI INSAN BANNA
MAGAR IS ME LAGTI HAI MEHNAT ZIYADA
Its is better to become human rather than Angle
But the efforts are much more in this
BASKAY DISHWAR HAI HAR KAM KA INSAN HONA
ADMI KO BI MAYSAR NAHI INSAN HONA
Just as it is difficult for things to be easy
It is not easy for man to become human.
Philosophy starts with the question ‘Who am I’, and since the beginning thinkers have been trying to answer this question. If we limit this question to a person then the question would be ‘Who is a person’. If we try to answer in precise words then we would say that our values make us human and which is very difficult.
We know that need good road to travel, clean water to drink and clean environment to live in, but we don’t know what is needed to become a good human being? In Today’s time, if you ask this question the answer would be in terms of money. It is interesting that our classical thinkers never negate money; in fact they have included it as one of the values of Purusharthas namely Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha. Now, we can say that for a person all these are equally important, only then we can say that today we are developed. The progress should be in the all fields of life. It should advance both the culture of man and the civilization. Hence, progress is not one sided it includes both internal and outer progress of man.
