    A Way of Life.
    Ethics and moral of Life.
    Culture of Old India.

    It's not religious book exactly.

    That means you have not read "Gita".

    It's conversation but it's all about Way and Ethics of Life only in whole conversation.

    Children should and must learn moral and ethics first. Science and Modern Syllabus should be personal choice for professional reason. There is difefrence between Way of Life and Professional Job. Sorry, Your thoughts are not up to mark. No offence.

    Physics is important and so is Metaphysics. Where will you get your moral values from if not from your parents and your teachers and teachers teach in school. This is a ridiculous argument. If you refuse to read a poem by a poet of the stature of Tagore, the first Nobel Laureate of Asia, then my friend you will fall into your own communal trap. There is nothing called a secular poem. Its the poet to decide and if people all over the world decided that Tagore deserved a Nobel prize then who are you and I to question that?

    What is connection between Govts Job and Moral ?? Why are you mixing 2 difference things like Diggy Singh ???

    Moral is not a professional course but basic and initial quality which is most needed in early stages to be " A GOOD HUMAN BEING" in future whereas Professional Course is all about Job/Business/etc. No one is saying don't study Science or Arts or Commerce. Study what you want to. Everyone has to study something in order to get success in professional life but it doesn't mean that person should not learn Ethics of Life.

    If you have not learnt any Ethics, then I feel Sorry for you. Ethics should be must for each and every human being.
