During the holy month of Ramadhan those fasting strive hard to attain good by avoiding bad deeds. They prefer doing good deeds - being truthful, honest, helping poor, and being kind to others.

Using abusive language and being harsh or disrespectful to others, doing injustice and cheating others, and indulging in fights; all this is avoided during this month. But the focus on good deeds should not remain confined to Ramadhan.

It must continue in other months. The spirit of the holy month should be carried forward also for positive change in life, and for the overall good of the humanity. The bad deeds should be given up permanently to have a good impact on life and society.

Poor and needy people need the help of others always and they should be provided this help. There are people who cannot make both ends meet. There are ill-people who cannot have money for medicines.

There are a number of our sisters and daughters who are not getting married because of some bad customs associated with marriage functions including dowry and showoff in our society. There are women who are victimised for not bringing enough dowry.

There are people whose work is not being done in large number of government offices as they are unable to pay bribe, or refuse to pay bribe. There are people who find it difficult to buy essentials due to unjustified price hike by shopkeepers.

This all causes a collective harm, and our being good entails dissociating from such practices. Women need to be respected not only at their homes but outside also. They should not feel any inconvenience or should not feel being disrespected outside their homes including workplaces, public spaces, educational and professional institutions or public transport.

All these problems need a solution and the solution lies in the society. If people start doing good deeds, being truthful and honest, being kind to others and helping the needy and poor, the society can change. The avoidable stress levels among the people due to various reasons can also come done.

The life can become easier. Being disciplined and having control over negative emotions and feelings is important. This control leads to good deeds.

The fasting and praying during the month of Ramadhan is a great help in shaping our personalities. Let the spirit of Ramadhan inform our life all along the year.
