Manners & Etiquettes……………..in Delhi? No way!
Read in the news that Dr Kiran Bedi has just come out with a new book, this one on Manners & Etiquettes, in view of the upcoming Common Wealth Games. I just hope
Delhi people WILL learn something. Though ofcourse, I doubt it.
Had gone to visit my Father-in-law at a Heart hospital yesterday, where he is admitted in the ICU. Forget about the cleanliness & hygiene part, here I’ll just refer to the behavior, manners & etiquettes part. My Brother-in-law just went to ask one of the Doctors there regarding something concerning his father’s treatment and you won’t believe the way that Doctor shouted an irritating “KYAAAAAAAAA……………” in response. Ridiculous! We don’t even talk to our servants like this. And this is how a Doctor at a HEART hospital treats his patient’s kin??? Come on DOCTORS, be PATIENT and for God’s sake have a HEART. And if you get time, do go through some book on manners & etiquettes.
Another example of rude behaviour came my way when we’d gone to the Lajpat Nnagar “Home Saaz” Furnishings showroom a few weeks back. The sales woman at the furnishings fabric counter was so outrightly rude, arrogant and misbehaved that she made us feel as if we as customers had gone to ask her for a favour. She didn’t know how to behave. Simple.
Now if a customer is treated badly in such a big showroom, what do you think we can expect at small shops. No wonder in Foreign countries when you go shopping, you feel good and you can go to the market even if you don’t want to buy anything. But in Delhi, I guess, one goes just because one needs to buy certain stuff. Thanks to some of the misbehaved people behind the counter.
So whether events like CWG come or not, I strongly feel Delhi needs to undergo training on Manners & Etiquettes anyway. People in this rude city MUST learn how to behave!!
