Tolerance is the most necessary quality of man. Tolerance is one of the conditions of good manners. Intolerance leads to the worst disaster. So, we put so much importance on tolerance.
Vices of Intolerance :
Intolerance leads to the worst kinds of disaster. In mythology and history, we can find many horrible acts of intolerance. Cain killed his elder brother Able because he could not bear the importance of Able in the eye of God. The Catholic Queen Mary of Great Britain burnt the Protestants alive. Because she could not tolerate the puritanism. Aurangzeb killed Hindus under the feet of elephants because he could not tolerate Hinduism. Sometimes we quarrel with others owing to such intolerance. Many of our enemies are the outcome of our intolerance. We cannot make justice, because we are intolerant to hearing the views which are different for ours. So, intolerance is a very bad quality.
Usefulness of tolerance :
Tolerance is really a very highly useful quality. It is one of the basic principles of good manners. We can do justice if we are tolerant to hearing the different views of others. If we are tolerant, we can make the due assessment of the views of others. Tolerance as a quality is indispensable in the democratic countries. Tolerance is the first condition for the exercise of democracy. Because in a democratic country, we must be tolerant of all views. We must be tolerant of the views however bitter that may be. So, every student, every citizen and every individual culture the habit of tolerance.
There is no doubt in it that tolerance is the most necessary quality in our everyday life. If we culture tolerance, we will be free from all the pain of envy within ourselves. Then our soul will live in peace and happiness. Children from their early childhood should develop the habit of tolerance. The elders should guide them in this respect.
