The whole movement of man's life is towards greater freedom As a child gows up hu dependence upon his parents and family progressvely dimininbes, while n fredon and selt reliance increases all the time. The goal of life seems to be fheaded in the Eesoned comugliee liberty. For the highest function of freedom is to make us capatle of govering oumeinea Freedom does not mean liberty to do anything that one pleases. Freedom has no meaning without responsibility.
All development is a process whereby we learn how to make the right choices. Hence it wo' be far from that all values are created in freedom. And what, one may ask, is the prpose of freedom? The purpose of freedom is only one- it is perfection. The entire process of time and development is far from the less to the perfect, be it in moral, ethical, physical metal or spiritual perfection. Freedom is the condition in which ideal of perfection may be realised. Complete freedom of choice complete freedom to do what you want to do-and is the only means to self-realisation.
The fully realised being is the highest ideal, not only because he fulfils himself, but also because being fully realised, he helps others to achieve their true potential.
Freedom, rather than meaning unrestricted licence, means total self-discipline, for discipline alone gives us freedom. Discipline is the means of achieving that which a free mind has evolved. Discipline is not an obstruction to freedom, but a passage to it, for the more disciplined you are, the freer you are to do that which you desire. And discipline must be imposed upon you if you cannot discipline yourself. Discipline means order while freedom may exist in chaos. And nothing worthwhile can be achieved when there is disorder and anarchy. Chaos has no power to affect anything worthwhile. So, give up all ideas you may have: that freedom meant doing anything that you fancy, for if you fancy disorder, you are not free, but bound.

Life on our planet earth began with the sea; it is the birth place of life on the earth. The earth is the only
planet of our solar system so far known which contains plenty of water and this water has made our
earth colourful, pulsating with life of a vast variety.
At present sea occupies about 70 percent of the earth's surface. In the southern hemisphere it occupies
more area than that in the northern. About 97% of the total water on the surface of the earth is found
in the seas and the remaining three percent, which is generally fresh, in lakes, rivers, ponds, etc.
Sea has given food and shelter to countless creatures. It is a potential source of protein. In 1900 the
world was only 150 crore, now it is more than 560 crores and is increasing at a very fast rate. As a
result, there is a terrible hunger in many parts of the world. In Africa, Asia and South America, millions
of people do not get enough to eat. Many die of malnutrition. Sea, , if used scientifically and judiciously,
can meet most of our demands.
Plankton or algae mostly constitutes the plant life. Like plant plankton there are also animal plankton;
the smallest living creature in the sea. These animal plankton feed on plant plankton and small fish.
Thus, there is an unbroken chain of life in the sea.
Arctic and Antarctic seas abound in plankton and algae and so in fish also. Blue whales, the largest
living creatures of the world, are also found here in great number.
Some countries have developed sea farming to a great extent. The Japanese and the Hawaiians relish
eating sea plants but it is not so in other countries though some use them to feed their cattle or as
manure in their fields. The fact is that sea plants contain rich nutrients not found in other vegetarian
food. It is good that even in our country some scientists have developed some recipes for curries, jams,
etc. to be made from algae.
But we must remember one thing that sea is not to be exploited immediately. For example, man in his
greed has hunted whales and some other sea creatures so recklessly that some of their species have
either become extinct or are on the verge of extinction. Now, nations of the world have realised their
folly and have taken some joint decisions. For example, one such decision is that the size of the holes
in fishing nets should be big enough to let baby fish escape through. Otherwise, killing of large
quantities of very young fish would have an adverse effect on the fish population. In the same way
another decision is for the protection of the blue whales.
