The sun rises and sets, the moon waxes and wanes, the night follows the day in due order. All these phenomena are governed by some law of nature. Because of this discipline there is perfect harmony and beauty in nature. Discipline starts from home. Discipline is the necessity of life. A man without discipline can achieve nothing worthwhile. Discipline is the very condition of progress, stability and strength. It is necessary in all walks of human life. Without discipline there will be disorders and lawlessness.
