Composition : Dignity of Labour

Dignity of Labour

All kinds of work, manual or intellectual, are known as labour. Generally, by dignity of labour, we mean the value of manual labour. All labour is sacred and full of dignity. We should use the strength of our body and two hands to do any work that comes before use.

Manual labour is essential for the progress, development and happiness of country. The daily affairs of life cannot run without it. Without labour, we would not have food, clothing and shelter. Labour is necessary to grow crops, build houses, offices, factories and roads. The sweeper, the porter, the carpenter, the mason, the blacksmith and the peasants give manual labour to make us happy and the country prosperous.

Unfortunately, the educated youth of our country consider manual labour beneath their dignity. They think that farmers and all illiterate people are meant to do manual labour. This is really a very wrong and shameful idea.

Industry is the key to success. A man who hates manual labour is a curse to himself and to the society. In the developed countries, labour is not undermined by anybody. In western countries, university students, on vacation work as menials in hotels and other places.

The men who undergo manual labour are the glorious sons of the country. Those who work without any shame in it are honoured and respected for their contribution to mankind. The man who works hard and earns his own bread is self-reliant and self-confident. Prophet Mohammad (Sm) said that labour adds to the dignity of man.

The prosperity of any nation depends on showing proper dignity to labour. In order to build up Bangladesh as a strong and developed nation, all people, particularly the new generation should feel no shame in doing manual labour.
