Activities

The classes were organised virtually for UG semester I, III and physically for PG semester I, III and UG semester- V, on 17th, 20th, 24th 25th and 26th respectively. The facilitator of the class was Dr. Rosy Kumari.
She discussed that personal responsibility is the willingness to accept the importance of standards that society establishes for individual behavior and to make strenuous personal efforts to live by those standards. It also means that when individuals fail to meet expected standards, they do not look around for some factor outside themselves to blame. The demise of personal responsibility occurs when individuals blame their family, their peers, their economic circumstances, or their society for their own failure to meet standards.
