365 days, June 24th: Morality play
I went to a convent school in Rawalpindi. I was in third standard. We had a lot of subjects some of them were familiar. There were two that were new and quite interesting. One was Moral Science, and the other was, Good Manners.
I liked Moral science a lot, there were questions and answers that we had to learn by heart. I was never used to rote memory. We had to learn a few pages at a time and then given a test. I always scored 100%.Naturally it was my favourite subject.
I remember a few, questions and answers. One of them was : Did man make himself?
Answer, no man did not make himself.
Who then made man? God the maker and creator of the world also made man.
What is temptation? Temptation is an inclination to commit sin, which needs an effort of the will to resist it.
There were others but I just mentioned a few to let everyone know where I got my Moral Science education.
Of course my mom also taught about right and wrong.
My eldest brother always teased me when he saw my, Good manners Book. He said, ‘see how quickly your teachers knew you must learn to be mannerly, that is why you had to buy the book? ‘
