When I think of home, I think of a place
Where there’s love overflowing

Suddenly the raindrops that fall have a meaning
Sprinkling the scene makes it all clean

Every time I go somewhere out, ride a bus, stand in queue to get something say maybe lunch or groceries, I see young, good looking, able bodied men displaying rules of such faulty behavior that it is simply rude and disrespectful to the females around them. That courtesy and the gentleness of manners which used to be the most attractive quality of men of all times seems to be just gone. If I were to compile a short list of such occurrences, it can include:
1. The ‘Ladies First’ rule has practically ceased to exist.
2. They don’t hold the door for you anymore.
3. They take the seats first even Continue reading
