The goal of national reconstruction can be achieved only if the citizens of the nation are furnished with human values like mercy, compassion, mutual cooperation patriotism, commitment, sense of duty and forward look etc. Promotion and inculcation of values among new generations is need of the time in present scenario of social violence, violence against women, terrorism and threat of various man made hazards. These values, generally lacking in youths now can successfully be inculcated through a strong system of value education. Inculcation of values and their practice in day to day behavior is supremely essential for a socially, morally and prosperous nation. But in our Indian scenario, not only the lack of political will and forward look is a problem rather social violence, violence against women, terrorism and threat of various manmade hazards and immoral behavior of policy makers, bureaucrats and common man are devastating the common social life of the nation. Education, in its process of making discipline between man’s inner nature and outer behavior, emphasizes values and virtues for preparing good human being for tomorrow. Value based education can help the nation to fight against all kinds of fanaticism, ill will, violence, corruption, prejudices and exploitation. This can be accomplished only when we instill in the children a deep feeling of commitment of values by living example as a role model that would reconstruct our nation.Values are required not to be taught and caught only but to be practiced in our daily personal and social life at school, community, larger society, office and in vocational affaires, also. Its is the duty of school and society, both that they must provide the younger generation with proper role models from all the walks of life. Teachers, leaders, parents and school administrators are expected to play their crucial role in value restoration and national reconstruction.
Key words: Value Education, National Reconstruction, Role of teachers and parents, Practice of values in day to day life.
