Structure of the answer:


Briefly define each of the three terms mentioned in the question.


Confession is when one accepts the mistake/wrong that has been done. It is the starting point of penance. It is the act that follows after the realization that one has done something immoral. It helps to purify mind and strengthens one’s conscience.

Commitment is the consistency and strength of a decision concerning something/someone. It depicts clarity and certainty in behaviour with respect to a thing someone is committed to. It strengthens one’s confidence with respect to that thing. Ex; commitment of our freedom fighters towards independence.

Rationality is a faculty of thinking wherein the prejudices, emotions and other outside influences have no place. It is a scientific approach to things. It helps us see things as it is and not adulterated by subjective opinions. It is the tool to bring objectivity in decision making. This instrument helps us discriminate between right and wrong, good and bad by their merits.

Give suitable examples for each of the virtue and justify their importance and relevance.


Conclude by reasserting their importance.
