    Impropriety: an improper or indecorous act or remark; especially: an unacceptable use of a word or of language
    the quality or state of being improper

    Incompatibility of values: the condition of two values being so different in nature as to be incapable of coexisting.
    inability of two values to live together harmoniously.

    Integrity: the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles.
    the state of being whole and undivided.
    Integrity, said author C.S. Lewis, “is doing the right thing, even when no one is looking.” Integrity is a foundational moral virtue, and the bedrock upon which good character is built.

    Moral muteness: Moral muteness occurs when people witness unethical behavior and choose not to say anything. It can also occur when people communicate in ways that obscure their moral beliefs and commitments.

    Fundamental Duties: The fundamental duties are defined as the moral obligations of all citizens to help promote a spirit of patriotism and to uphold the unity of India. These duties set in part IV-A of the Constitution, concern individuals and the nation. They are not legally enforceable. They are held by the Supreme Court to be obligatory for all citizens.
