Ethics and values are Utopian words

Some of B schools and even new IIMs have replaced GD with WAT hence, Written Analysis Test has also become a tool to test MBA aspirant on assessing overall communication and personality, so it is also equally important and crucial component of MBA admission process.
Read WAT topic: Ethics and values are Utopian words
Some people claim that ethics and values have taken a back seat in the 21st century because people are highly driven by money and power. We tend to respect people who have more money and are powerful in the world and ignore moral values and ethics to a large extent. However, this does not mean that people with ethics and values are extinct – they still exist but in small numbers.
We live in a highly competitive world and people are willing to do anything to succeed and go far in life. In addition, with the proliferation of corrupt practices in India, even the morally upright person is required to blend into the system to get ahead in life.
In the past, before the influx of Western values into India, Indian families were close-knit and there was emphasis on Asian values – where children were required to show respect to the elders and decisions were made after consulting key members of the family.
However, today, Indians have become westernized not only in their lifestyles but also their values. Children in India have become self-centered and families have become nuclear in nature.
Family ties have become weaker and relationships mostly centre around money and superficial things. According to several reports, divorce rates in India have increased by 100% between 2005 and 2010 and the numbers are rising with each passing year. This shows that people have started placing more emphasis on money and independence as compared to family ties and togetherness.
However, it is unfair to say that our world is devoid of ethics and values or that ethics and values are Utopian words. People still value ethics, which is why since 2011, there has been a strong emphasis on the Jan Lokpal Bill.
People are not happy living in a world of corruption and they are keen to fight it. In addition, Indians are coming up with different programs and portals to increase the public’s awareness of corruption in the country. For example, initiatives such as ‘I Paid A Bribe’ has gained momentum in India because people want a clean country, which is devoid of corrupt practices.
The ‘I Paid A Bribe’ portal allows Indians to report incidents where bribes were given or taken and these incidents are then reported to the media and government officials who take action against the culprits.
It is true that we do not see ethical behavior in our society as frequently as we did in the past. However, ethics and values are still present in the society. Through various initiatives and programs, we can change people’s views and promote ethical behavior which is beneficial to the society.
Once moral values are inculcated in Indians, we will be able to witness a lower crime rate, maintain stability in the economy and grow as a nation.
