Q6(b). “A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.” – M. K. Gandhi (150 words) (10 marks)
All actions of human beings are driven by their thoughts. When our thoughts are good, our actions are good. When our thoughts are evil, our actions are evil.
Thoughts are the seeds that transform a person. The best way to change the thinking of a person is to provide him the right education. For example, if a student learns the scientific explanation of the solar or lunar eclipse, he would never believe in the mythological stories and superstitions associated with it. If a person has the knowledge of medical science, he won’t believe that diseases are the result of their past sins or are sent by God. When people have rational thoughts, their life becomes better and they achieve success and happiness in the world. It is thus evident that a man is the product of his thoughts. If we wish to lead a good life, we must cultivate good thoughts in our mind. (155 words)
