On returning morals!

Render unto Caesar things which be Caesar?s!
Swami Vivekananda, the most practical of all the ascetics of his genre, had declared that the best amongst you is the best in repaying. It applies to ?returning? of things ?in kind? too! But how many of us promptly return the things borrowed from others without the owner asking for it! I think it is a rare virtue amongst the homo-sapiens!
But we should inculcate the habit of returning other’s property promptly (before getting reminded about it by the owner) to the children. In fact, it should be part of the curriculum in schools!
Books are invariably the culprits! Many have built big libraries out of borrowed books!
Now, how many such skeletons are there in your cupboard?
