The natural duty of a student is to think and look forward and to read in proper way so that he can be a good citizen of a country and becomes a grown up man.
But when a student enters into the hard life of earning money he thinks that the best days of his life was the student life. He has spent the years in the schools and also in the colleges with the glorious days of his memory.
As such it can be said that those days are the best days of his life. In those olden days students are mainly asked to devote all his valuable time only in study but this theory does not work at present. He is to study and also to participate in domestic works. Sometime he is to involve in the politics of the colleges. At the last time he proves himself a bad boy who cannot do a work completely.
Today’s students are ordered to participate in different school activities. He is to play in the school. He is to do the social and cultural works of the school at the same time. There are different sort of competition which usually tend to put a student in tension.
A student must complete his education at any cost. At present day a modern student is required to be ambitious and also to engage himself in more efforts. He must needed extra tenacity of his own to face the coming problems. He is to do a lot to fulfill his duties and ambition.
The duties of a student includes the following:
- They should learn the day’s lessons beforehand at home.
- They must do their exercises themselves.
- They must keep the books clean.
- They must go to school in time.
- They must be obedient and loving towards their parents.
- They should not tell lies.
- They should be quite attentive in the classroom.
- They should cheerfully obey your teacher.
- They should play fair on the playground.
All these, then, are the duties of a student.
It is estimated that nearly 15% of the total population of India consists of students. The students, therefore, constitute a great potential force capable of leading a nation to great heights of progress or abyss of decadence. No wonder every nation spends crores of rupees for their education and proper development. The future of every nation depends on their students.
The primary duty of a student is to learn and acquire knowledge. Their main duty consists of improving their intellect and widening their mental capabilities. Unfortunately, many students forget this goal and spend their school days uselessly enjoying and idling away their time. Only later they realise the result of their folly.
But then it is too late. School is the platform wherein students learn the good traits of life such as, discipline, obedience, dutifulness, diligence, respect to elders, honesty, patriotism, etc. School provides numerous opportunities for the development of these qualities. It is the duty of every student to acquire these fine qualities of life which will enable him/ her to stand in good stead in the future.

Another important duty of the students is to prepare them for the career they want to pursue. It is in school life that the future career takes roots. During school life, one becomes aware of one’s abilities, limitations and the different professions available. Therefore, during this stage they should make up their mind as to what they should become in life. School life is the right time to make proper choice of one’s career.
Students are the guardians of society. It is their duty to fight against all evils existing in the society. They have tremendous responsibility to see that injustice, inequality, oppression, exploitation, corruption, criminalisation of politics, communalism, casteism, misuse of public money, etc., are done away with. Students have great strength to oppose these evils of society.
Students also have a great responsibility to help out the less fortunate members of the society by way of social work. They can offer great services by teaching illiterate children of nearby villages, building houses for the poor people of the locality, undertaking cleaning drives, creating public awareness on various social issues, etc.
Students can also render valuable services to the nation at the time of calamities such as, earthquakes, floods, severe drought and accidents. Students ought to take leadership in organising quick rescue work. In fact, student organisations such as, N.C.C. and scout troops have rendered praiseworthy services to the nations at the time of national emergencies in the past and I am sure they will continue to do so in the years to come.
Thus, students can render valuable services to the cause of the nation. They can play a vital role in wiping out the various ills which throttle national progress and development and thereby set the nation on its rail. They are the true assets of a nation. It all depends on how we trim and tune these God-given resources to the benefit of the nation.
