Hello to each and every who want's a change but not want to be changed.

In my opinion Rules are just a thoughts of that person who were approached to make the rules.

Some people made the rules according to their understanding and knowledge which were may be correct in that time and we are following them blindly without raising any doubt.

Suppose anyone wish to change the rule that women may stay with her parents even after marriage, people will start targeting that person by saying that they do not respect rituals but our society even know why this ritual was started, who made this rule and what was the reason behind making such rule. In name of rules and rituals there was also a rule called 'Sati pratha' to burry a women alive when her husband dies. If this thing can be changed then why not others. Such kind of rules are meant to be broken.

My point is if we can not raise our voice against impartial rules then I thing animals are living a good life then us.

Rules are meant to be broken when needed.

When you can't do anything about a situation and the last option is to break the rules. Depending on the time and situation given. You do the crime you do the time. For example. If you had to come up with the money to save your family and time is not on your side the last thing you can do is to steal for the ones you love then if it saves their life wouldn't anyone risk their life for their family? When I say risk their life I mean freedom. We all know the consequences that follow and we will sacrifice our own self to save those we love especially our children/our loved ones people who mean everything to us. If we had no choice given and we tried our best to get help from everyone to anyone but no one was there to help what else can you/we do?

Now this isn't always the best thing to do in some scenarios but as long as breaking the rules don't involve hurting anyone or taking someone's life away I'm sure that if it saves a life or many lives then yes rules are meant to be broken. I would break it if needed just to save many or even just 1 life because 1 matters.

Anyways RULES should stay the way it is it has worked for so long but there are just some that need to be looked into that may need a little bit of tweaking. The rule-makers knows whats best for the people I'm sure they did not just get to where they are at without the knowledge and experience and I'm sure they also had to live the way others did in order to experience what others are experiencing they can even be beside us and we don't even know it. To know what rules are to be broken you must first experience the reasoning as to why they had to be broken. The reasonings vs the excuses. Which one outweighs is there's a will there's a can. You will do your hardest to succeed in life by obeying rules along the way. Rules are there not to keep us in line but to help us along the way. We have our own will our own rights and the knowledge to know what is wrong or right we also are given the feeling that we have felt in our journey and we know when something seems to be off or wrong like Spiderman we get these senses. A666nd it is up to us to follow it. Our intuition plays a big part you will sense things that makes eye doesn't see this is when your body mind and soul aligns and when it does you just know and feel that you must do what you believe is right even thou you know that it may break some rules but you just know that you need to it because you can see it by the experience you have encountered and the knowledge you have learned from it. And when you feel that something just isn't right or you just feel that it's needed you go with your feeling and what you believe. And because you believe you need to see for yourself that what you feel is right so you go blindness into the unknown and you hope that you are right and if you arnt well atleast you went with what you believe in and now you know. Atleast it was your own choice. So let me ask now thesame questions are rules meant to be broken? Yes they are but that's the test of life the questions we should ask is. What are you willing to sacrifice? Your freedom? Or the freedom of others? If you can make a difference and if you had to endure all the pain and suffering to change something wouldn't you sacrifice yourself if it helps all of us? If it can make a difference?

Good evening to everyone.

Today our topic is "Rules are meant to be broken".

Let's begin with our topic.

As my opinion rules are for everyone and everyone should follow them. There are many rules that are made by governments but for our safety. There are some rules that are necessary for us like traffic signals, children can't give a vote until they are 18, and many more. There is a rule for a short time period to wear mask, social distances etc. And we should follow them. It's our safety.

Good evening to all.

I am glad to take the opportunity to talk in this topic.

So, first of all, rules mean the obeying discipline mode of our life that some created by us and some crated by the government so rule makes us more comfortable and a simple leading of life as the example is that he rule of traffic and in COVID 19 rule of sanitisation social distancing mask-wearing that crated by govt to feels us more protected but if we are moving against the rules that means we get short term satisfaction and relaxation but we don't know that how if provide an impact on other people so the rule doesn't mean to broken but sometimes our corruption feels us that our govt breaking the rule against the law so rules is everything physically and mentally.

Good Evening,

In my opinion, the statement Rules are meant to be broken is partially correct. It depends upon the rules which are to be broken or not, for example, there are some traffic rules which are not meant to be broken and we should follow them properly, also there are some laws which were set by Britishers in India, but they harass some our peoples in many ways, that's why many Nationalists and Freedom Fighters gave up their life fighting the Britisher for our freedom and by breaking the laws. So it depends upon the Rules which affect the majority of the people. Rules are set by the government which are always in favour of the masses and when the masses do not agree with the rules or want some changes in it, they broke the rules. In football, you break the rules of the game you are out of the game.

So yes, Rules are meant to be broken but not always.

Thank you.

There are two sides for every coin. As the statement says 'rules are meant to be broken'.

It is not always the same scenario, we must act based upon the situation. If you always obey the rules and follow them blindly you will never be able to achieve your passion or dreams. If everyone follows the same rulers, everyone will land to the same destination.

It is only when you break the rules and come out of your comfort zone, work hard you'll be able to experience the taste of success.

Similarily in certain cases, it is imperative to follow the rules and act accordingly because we the people of India live in a democratic country that doesn't mean we can do whatever we want to.

According to me "Rules are meant to follow and they can also be broken". For example, if we are not following the rule on-road then there is a chance for an accident. And nowadays due COVID 19, we should follow the rules given by the government like wearing a mask and sanitizing our hands or we are going to be affected by a coronavirus. Another example if we are no breaking the rules then we must be in ancient time. Were we use stones to produce fire but now we are using matchbox, litre etc. The is someone who broken the rules and found this latest technology.

Conclusion: I say that rules are there to follow as well as they are there to broken.

According to me, Rules is like to habitual discipline to obey and follows the regulations with terms ad conditions. Rules are not for broken because every bad thing is punishable and harmful for others as well as society. Example of Dubai and gulf countries rules are stringent for any crime, so that's why those counties crime rates are reduced or equal to none & government stringent this little crime and people haven't any brave to do this crime and society is safe to follow this rules. If there are no rules in the world then every country, a person broke the rules and attack to others and graveyard. Lord Ram is a very nice attribute to peoples to follow the rules.

Firstly, thank you for giving me a platform to express my views & opinions.

Rules are meant to be broken!

Everyday We live with the rules, We follow rules, We break rules. Rules is nothing it's just behavior of our lifestyle. I would say about today's scenario, nowadays COVID 19 spreading day by day. Because of that, our PRIME MINISTER says that in this situation, we should stay at our home with our family. And it's very strictly announced but most of the people do not consider it. They are breaking their rules.

Now, end the topic concluding that rules are great to make a follow, God Ram, is the best example of rules, he always go with the life of rules, he never breaks rules in or life and in the end he is great & the very brave king of Ayodhya.

My name is Samra Qureshi, I am really glad to speak on the topic-Rules are meant to be broken.

First and the foremost thing is thank-you for giving me the opportunity to speak and now lets get started.

Rules are the guidelines provided to individuals to follow for a better and peaceful living. Often people concluded the following rules as restriction and feel prisoned.

As per my opinion, the application of rules depends upon the circumstances and situation.

Killing someone is not accepted against the living while killing someone on borders is accepted.

I also believe that some rule-breaking in the daily schedule gives us the opportunity to learn and explore around.

EXAMPLE- I would like to share a very common example with you. A man goes to the gym for weight-loss, his instructor asks him to follow and adhere to the planned diet. Albeit he want to lose his pounds but can't go on days without deserts or pizza, In that a small cheat day is made for him so that he can enjoy exercising along with his regime. I shared this example just to tell you about how sometimes breaking a small rule gives us gratification.

I would like to share the example of the current ongoing situation around the world- COVID-19 virus.

The government is asking the citizens to remain quarantined if they have any travel history and also asking people to remain inside their dwellings until the curfew is closed.

This is the road that is beneficial for human health. As the virus is spread through contact, physical distancing is the only way to contain its spread.

Respected Prime Minister SHREE NARENDRA MODI appealing the citizens to follow the rules and guidelines to avoid the epidemic. He is asking citizens to contain accumulation to avoid spread and further deaths. This is a great example of following the rule for the welfare of society.

Along with it, I would like to ask you all a question. The breaking of rule for the wrong reason albeit giving pleasure should be allowed?

Of course not, we cannot do anything wrong just for gratification.

I would end the topic concluding that rules are great to make and follow as it helps in bringing discipline, peace, distinction, gratification in once's life, and someone breaking it if it brings peace without knowing it won't hurt others and you can explore more.

Thank you all for patiently listening to me.

Rules are meant to be broken.

In my opinion, rules which are oppressive or are against the goodness of society overall should be broken.

Rules are made to bring order in society, however, these rules are decided by mankind which means that they can always be wrong.

If rules are not broken people will never know what is beyond the limit.

Rules NEED To be broken to find new methods and creative solutions. Dreams only come true when we believe that our imagination can be something real and that is more than often against the rules.

However in more practical situations like criminal activity, if rules are broken it is incorrect.

Conclusion: the statement is not universally correct. It adversely depends on the situation.

I think rules shouldn't be broken because if we disobey or broke any rule, then we are in habit of disobeying again and again.

Take an example of sports like cricket, football etc. These games are possible because of rules. In cricket, there is a rule not to ball after a fixed line. If we broke this rule, then think what is fun of playing these games.

Rules are Meant to be Broken!.

In my Opinion, the application of rule depends on the circumstances and Situations. Because killing of a person in society is Against to the rule of Living, whereas killing a person at Boarder or in the forest by our commandos or by the militants is well accepted.

In my opinion, there are no universal rules which are applicable to each and every situation. That's is the reason it is well said in the constitution courts to give a sense of the rule. The rule has to be modified to the Situation if it is giving adverse results for the prosperity of society then the rule has to be broken as per the constitution, not whomsoever wants to broke the law.

The thinking capacity and application our mind to a particular situation makes us different from the animals living in the forest.

I can tell one thing before doing anything apply our mind and common sense.

No rules should not be broken. There is a certain Reason for each rule was created.

In other words, we can say that there are two kinds of people.

1. Would obey when the instruction is given.
2. They would physically get affected and then realize later.

For example:

Our childhood days our mom would have told not to go near candle but we would always be attracted by them and then we would get wounded in our hands.

In the young stage, government or police would ask us to wear helmets but we would think it's difficult to put on in sunny days and we would not use them.

But soon we would met with an accident then only we realize our mistake.

So there is a certain reason why rules are created especially when elder people advise us we should think and obey them. Because if they say there might be a reason for all the rules and regulations to be followed so if we broke our rules we would break our life timeline.

Rules are meant to be broken.

The above statement can't apply to every rule. Let me discuss an example here. Courts enforce rules upon people for reducing crime and evil I'm the society. Without rules, ethics and morals, where would our society be turning into ? In this case, rules play a major role. On the other hand, there are few rules that we are following till date that need to be crossed. We used to have a rule that justified child marriage, if the same convention is being followed now, there's nothing wrong in crossing it. Children are meant t grow and develop into a brighter citizens by not being tied to marriages.

Hence, I conclude saying that, rules can be best as per the generation and their adaptability.

Rules are meant to be broken is not true but when there is need to change the rule then we must do it.

Rules are made by keeping in mind that it will help in accomplishing the work in proper manner. But we know as time changes, new technologies evolved, new ways of handling problems are made rather than using old ones.

So, we should follow the rules but instead of breaking them find that why you are going to break them. May be that rule is not necessary nowdays to follow then replace the rule with new one which can be followed according to new generation.

I am delighted to see such wonderful thought provoking inputs. Rules are meant to control, influence. Main objective of defining of any rule is to expect a person should behave in particular mannerism. As time passes, these rules become absolute and ineffective, which needs to be re validate as time passes. Effectiveness of rule execution measurement tool is major tool to re define rule execution. Rule binds person's mind and body. I am not saying we should not break laws, but we must have to break rules to extend our boundaries. Bringing our dreams into reality. We have to break barriers and fly high through this route. Check history and you will find all people who had done exceptionally well in their life is not believing in ongoing rule and breaking rule.

LIFE is dynamic in nature it's never still. We make rules for the smooth perpetuation of our daily activities. If we don't do so we may be lost. Life without an aim is like a ship wandering in the ocean without any fixed destination. Discipline is very much necessary but sorry it's fading from us.

Every game has rules we cannot go as our mind craves for.

But many rules like our conservative customs, rituals are a hindrance in the path of success that needs to be broken it needs to be modified for everyone betterment.

Overall rules were made by our ancestor's wise persons from their experiences that are almost correct so we should follow those rules, stay in our limits as they are for our own betterment only, and rest we are matured only we know our good and bad and do actions accordingly.

Hellow friends,

According to me, the statement that rules are meant to be broken is not good to be followed like as we know our country has the rule that is right to equality if we broke that rule then who will suffer= Us. Each and every person has the right to life if we break that rule then who will suffer=Us. So, if one wants to live his life without rules then it would not be possible that he would succeed in his life. If a person made his own rules for his life I guarantee it that he would succeed in his life. But there were some rules in the country those had to be broken like that of the Sati Pratha, Pardha system etc those were making a gap between the equality of a male and female and the initiative of ending these rules were taken by Raja Ram Mohan Roy. We know that youth of our country are much talented and they are proving themselves in the whole world and why they all are having the chance to prove themselves is just because of some rules those may be made in their life and also provided by the country.

I think that rules are not always meant to be broken. I feel the context of breaking the rules varies in accordance with the situation. Rules made for public interests must never be broken like following traffic rules etc. For instance if rules are made to do a problem in maths only by a particular way or to adhere to a set of instructions devised by some people in solving some kind of problem is'nt always advisable from my perspective. Have felt so because it hinders a different individual's problem solving ability and creativity. Maybe that person can device a better method or a simpler one.

Rule word is not only for saying this is related to our daily routine and regulations. Suppose we are a student|/scholar then we will have show our rules and Will have to make manner for self control. I shouldn't accept that type of rule that is against our thinking or against to our nation, if take the example of British government they imposed lot of rule over the Indian that was not necessary like toilet act, English become compulsory on that time, temple tax pits India act.

Rules as guidelines i.e. made for safety purpose, if we do not follow traffic rules then our life is at risk, so without rules life is risky. We go to school or college or office by fixed time clock because this is a rule & rules maintain discipline in our life. Rules followed by all citizens for make civil life. Without rules, we do not enjoy our life. Rules indicate to us equally to each other because rules are same for everyone. Rules help in attaining success.

If we don't obey the rules then it will be harmful for us only. For an instance now a days people wear helmet will riding bike when they have fear to be caught by police and they have to fine. But they should wear a helmet to save themselves because it is not a matter of him but his family. If we follow rules then we can grow and live a happy life weather it is a road, academy or anything else.

Thank you.

Rules are not meant to be broken. If rules are meant to be broken then there would be an other name for rules i.e. guidelines. Rules are made for the safety of a person. If you consider traffic rules if you do not follow traffic rules then your life is at risk. Even in schools or colleges, we go to school by 9 clocks because this is one of the rules. What if we break this? Then no student will follow discipline in his life because sometimes we get habituated to the things we learn in the school. So rules are not meant to be broken.

Thank you, friends, for sharing your valuable points.

Here, I want to add my views on the topic.

Rules are not meant to be broken.

Rules are equal to success (result).

For example: - if an athlete is preparing for his national championships. (any sports) that he is going to be part of it after a month, and he is not following his daily routine like practice, diet plan etc, then the result would be not as expected (winner).

So point is that rules should not be broken.

But in some cases, we can break the rules when it is mandatory, but it should not harmful to others.

Thank you.

And, if the follow he given a quote then there will be no order as everyone will be able to do as the please. The will be chaos and the whole system of governance might as well fall apart.

Ex- there is a restriction on triple driving on bikes but how many people follow ?

Those people who have one bike 3 member in family what will they do obviously they will go together.

Well, rules are meant to be broken. Are dry? I don't think so. Why because every rule is made up by individuals which make people more comfortable, safety, happily too. Either in ancient days or nowadays every rule is made up by people to live happily only. Some people don't care rules and that person surely suffers their life.

No, I don't think so, in a democratic country like India rules are made for our (the peoples) well-being and its common for all. What does it mean if we make a rule and it's we who breaks them? Yes, there are circumstances when rules must be broken, but only for a good deed and not for an individuals enjoyment.

Yes, you are my of the businessmen and politicians breaks rules, here we don't want to follow these, we should take precautions for this.

The topic is Rules are meant to be broken.

With this, I would not deny that I myself may have broken many rules, be it rules framed by my parents or by my families or maybe by my school and college teachers.
Who obeys rules I don't and maybe it might be with all of you in this discussion. On toll road it's written that the speed should not exceed a certain limit but who has the time to obey them. Even its made compulsory that kids who are below the age of 18 years should not be permitted to drive but all of us have seen kids under the age of 18 driving rashly on the roads and the recent case of a boy who killed a person on the busy roads of Delhi. For kids, they aren't aware of all these rules they think what will happen if we just try to break all these rules. The results may destroy their life but who cares. Their parents are also supporting their kids. Even when on cigarettes packs it's clearly mentioned that smoking is injurious to health. Smoking causes cancer. But this has increased more smokers, be it children under the age of 18 or above the age of 18 we see everyone smoking in the market. If any of us try to stop them or give them the harmful cause of smoking they won't even care to listen. And I have also tried stopping one of my close friends that why are you spoiling your life when you are aware of its harmful effects that person in one or two days told me that he doesn't want to keep this friendship going because I was trying to change him. I know what a lame reason.

But anyway human are there to hide their mistakes but when other person makes the same mistakes we are the first one to speak out loud that the person is not obeying the rules. So we are there just there to break rules.

But we need to adapt to such restricted environment in order to develop and protect ourselves. For example, our government has made it mandatory to always wear a helmet. But how many of us follow this rule? We see a notice which says "DO NOT GO BEYOND THIS LINE". But people just ignore the instruction and put their lives under risk.

Actually sentence RULES ARE MEAN TO BE BROKEN is not correct.

Because Rules means that we have to follow/obey in our daily life or whatever.

Yeah, rules might be broken that is ok.

Because in some critical situation we can see that we have to break because in that situation that is important but yeah it should not effect to other life, relationship, means it should not hear another one.

Take one example DELHI now there are going start ODD EVEN number vehicle (only rules for that is not commercially) so what is the reason behind this because we have the problem of high traffic on road and major problem of AIR pollution that also storming the city.

So it is good for us only, means by reducing the vehicle now fuel consumption will reduce answer soon there so many advantages.

But there may be some situation where we have to break the rule like if in any family house someone got health problem not we have to take patient hospital in just time and we have only ODD number car but that day Even number is only allowed then we have to break the rules because not think of a life of a person.

I think its wrong that Rules are meant to be broken. All of us are living in a civilized society and are bound to follow rules from every minute activity, from the day we are born. While we were kids, we used to follow rules of our parents are being educated to follow rules. Rules of a nation, any sports we play, society we live in.

If we don't follow the rules, we are no way different to the animals. The impact of not following rules is obvious. If we don't follow the rules of a country or nation, we will be put behind the bars or would be fined.

Apart from this, it results in instability in the society and the results could be devastating. Suppose a person does not obey a traffic rule when the signal is red and keeps on moving, it could end up in an accident thereby resulting in loss of human life, property, etc.

We kept on cutting trees relentlessly for decades against the rules of nature and now the results are before everyone. Rising Global Warming, Polluted air above inhaling level, polluted water, etc.

Being in a rule means keeping our society in balance thereby maintain equilibrium. So, I am in view of Rules are not meant to be broken and everyone should abide by the rules set up.

Just like a coin having two sides the rules also having two sides. For attaining success in any field the rules play a key role. For proper arrangement, discipline rules and regulation are necessary. No doubt rules make our life on time. So the rules must be followed up by everyone to be regular one. But some rules which are of no meaning should be broken because until the old one rule broken up by us the new one will not be created. So the rules having no importance must be broken for the new one.

Rules are created to be followed. Everyone should follow the rules and regulation strictly. If the proper laws are followed than every thing will be in the well format way automatically. If you do anything against the rules, then you can also get punished. For eg, think, students who are paying fees manually, if they all directly rushes to the counter then they will get more time, and the one who has came first to pay fees might be at the end and the last one pushes and pay it first, this will be a wrong way and it will injustice for the one who came first so guys whats the big deal following the rules and maintain peace in the society.

Rules that we follow in our day to day life cycle are the essential measures of taking steps ahead rightly and proper decisions are centered round the rules which are key to living a good life. Offcourse stringent laws as for rules before us are somewhat difficult to comply with. Then we take recourse to ignore them somehow resulting in operational difficulties on the way to our normal existence as though we defy to sort out normal acceptance of the other sides and respects of the hard rules only tricky way is the means of breaking a rule for mere attaining objectives in a short cut.

But we forget that there is a reward waiting for us in a long course of our movements ahead. Yet we commit gross mistakes simply avoiding the path of our duty and rules are the does and don't that we sometimes forget to follow because of our petty interests that in course of time prove to be so disastrous that we can hardly be able to protect us from monstrous downfall which is beyond all expectations.

Then we suffer and think long about the past course of action which rendered us sorrow and tears for happiness and cheers due to breaking rules and making a primrose path by sheer indulgence in corrupt means in what actually is in form and manner.

Hey friends,

Lot of discussions are going on this topic 'Rules are meant to be broken'. It may be true may not be true. However, I feel that rues are meant to be broken but we need to specify which rules. All rules need not be broken, if some are oppressive then there are as some rules which are made for the betterment of the society.

Just imagine, what would have happened, if there were no rules to elect government, no traffic rules. Any one can do anything, ride anywhere, go anywhere. Ya it sounds good for sometime thinking 'aapni marzi ke malik' (to be the master's of ones own will) but what next, in long-run, it will become a torturous, no one there to guide. Life will be like a boat without a boatman.

On the other hand, there are some rules which should be broken example dowry, child-marriage and many more. Conclusively, I would like to say rules are not meant to be broken but yes they need to be changed with time, situation and fashion.

When I was young my parents had this rule that I could never have dessert before dinner. I hated it because as with most kids dessert was the best part of my day. When I was 9 years old I had enough, my friend at the time josh was over and we decided to break the one rule that was never supposed to be broken, eat dessert before dinner.

We rode our push bikes down to the local store and bought a 2 liter container of neapolitan ice-cream and smuggled it into my room under my jumper. We hadn't eaten anything all day in preparation and were starving. Together we ate that whole container of ice-cream within the hour and within the next 40 minutes we were vomiting it back up.

Although it is a light hearted example of breaking a rule, I understand that if I hadn't broken that one rule I might still be eating dinner before dessert without any knowledge of why I was doing it. Sure, rules are set so we can all live in a perfect world but in the end the perfect world is the one we don't appreciate because we haven't learnt from our mistakes and experienced the reason for the rule in the first place.

Making mistakes and learning from them is instrumental in human development and rules are made to be broken to push us further into understanding our own boundaries and the worlds reasons for having rules. Rules are meant to be broken so we can learn for our own, and each others mistakes.
