Structure of the Essay:


You can start the introduction through following ways:

  • Start with a general introduction/anecdote/an example/a short story/a poem/a quote/a recent event or trend etc which can help in describing the need for self-reliance.
  • The provided topic discusses the lessons that people and institutions learn throughout their lives and contends that there is no end to learning. As a result, we are confronted with a slew of questions about the lessons learned. First, do we agree that there is no ultimate lesson because there are so many more lessons to be learned? Or are there so many teachings that we can’t condense them all into a single lesson? Or can we conclude that there is no final lesson because we do not learn it? To answer these questions, we will first look at some of the lessons learned through use throughout life.

Thesis Statement:

  • It is a transition statement between introduction and body of the essay.
  • In thesis statement, you should write outline of the body with your own arguments. You should prove these arguments in body of the essay with relevant examples.

Body of the essay:

  • Some of these can be summarised as follows: Development must be sustainable or humans would suffer; Businesses must be ethical or they will face the destiny of Kingfisher, Sahara, or Lehman Brothers; Society must be equal and just; and Politics must be inclusive for a nation to thrive. We have examples of Sri Lanka, Pakistan, which suffered in its absence, and current turmoil in Kenya, Nepal, West Asia, Europe, and the United States. Individual lessons can be in the form of values that an individual must cherish and uphold- honesty, integrity, sympathy, and so on- in order to live a meaningful life. For example, Gandhi believed that upholding the values of non-violence and truth was essential. There are some possible answers to the first question. For the first question, here are some lessons learned from day-to-day living experience.
  • Regardless, there are numerous lessons to be learned. Though many of these lessons appear to be final, their meanings will continue to change because there are so many aspects of everything, as the meaning of development and sustainability have changed throughout human history from material development to human development to social development to ethical development, Inclusiveness in itself has different meanings at different points in time and space, and personalities such as Gandhiji and Ambedkar continued to learn new lessons. It has been noted that individuals, societies, and nations that believed they had learned their ultimate lesson perished because they failed to learn new things, to be dynamic, and to adjust to new situations.
  • Second, the lessons we gain in life are so varied that they cannot be summarised in a few words or chapters. The world is complicated, with numerous elements and phenomena acting concurrently. Because there is a complex combination of realism and idealism, there can be no single final lesson. Every lesson is appropriate for the time and place. There are times when rapid and steady is desired over slow and steady, resulting in contradictory learning, particularly in the age of information technology. A country may shift its organisational principles from socialism to capitalism because there can be no one ultimate way in a country’s lifetime.


  • Amendments to our Constitution are examples of how we as a society must learn different lessons at different times. To address our third question, we can argue that people fail to learn lessons like there is no end to greed or aspirations and continue to pursue materialistic items. Countries, communities, and organisations expire because they fail to learn from their own and others’ experiences. After all, the end lesson remains that there is no final lesson and that we must continue to acquire new things, adapt what we have learned to new situations, and apply what we have learned.
