n this fast moving world everyone is trying to catch up with everything, information, knowledge, skills at a breakneck speed. Nobody wants to be left behind. WhatsApp has become the harbinger of a flat world. Sharing is believing. Trainers, consultants and counsellors are trying to bridge the gap, people face day in day out, albeit for a price, mostly hefty ones. Whatever may the inventory & results of these exercises, a topic which is conspicuous by its absence everywhere and every time is Conscience.

Conscience is the kernel of our thinking, our internal connect to the external world, its like an API to a popular software. The connect has to happen perfect for the individual to be healthy; mentally & physically and be successful in life, the right way. Conscience is a person’s moral sense of right and wrong, viewed as acting to guide one’s behaviour. The concept is further elaborated in this definition; “Conscience is a cognitive process that elicits emotion and rational associations based on an individual’s moral philosophy or value system.”

Why conscience is not talked about liberally in the modern day world? Are individuals aware of their conscience? Are moral parameters applied to our decision making and execution of endless things we do day in and day out? Do we differentiate people on grounds of Conscience? Do we have outcastes for not having conscience? If these questions are not the questions of our daily life then Conscience is not a currency of our daily life as well.

The competition is not in having a robust conscience to deal with the world, it is in how much of conscience one has already lost, if not completely. Practicality is synonymous to loss of conscience. The profession of medicine lost its aura & charm as it started losing conscience. It’s lack is on full display in electronic media debates daily. Can anyone in a lynching mob possess conscience? One major cause of stress is lack of moral fibre, which emanates out of lack of conscience.
