476-L Model Town,
17th July, 2006
I have returned from Simla. Being sick of the heat of Delhi, I had gone to Simla in the first week of June. It is, you know the best hill-station. It has various picnic spots such as Jakhu, Prospects Hill, Glenn, Chedwich Falls etc.
We used to go to the Mall every night and enjoyed the scenic beauty of hills. Warm clothes and umbrellas were used every day there was greenery all around. It was very pleasant to be in bed with blankets in June. The Mall and the Ridge gave the impression of fashion parade. We visited the Hanuman Mandir on every Tuesday.
Rest when we meet with love.
5. Good Manners :
Good manners are taught to us by our parents, teachers and elders. We show good manners by what we say and the way we say it. Good manners are also expressed by the way we behave and conduct ourselves. Being polite and considerate is good manners. Being rude and arrogant in our words and deeds shows bad manners. Similarly, being quarrelsome and argumentative is bad manners.
Speaking softly and gently is good manners. If a person shouts it is bad manners. Using abusive and offensive language is also bad manners. It is good manners to use appropriate language at all times. One who uses words like thank you, sorry, pardon and welcome in an appropriate way shows good manners.
People around us are friendly with us and appreciate us if we are good mannered. If we are good mannered we can live a life of peace, harmony and good cheer.
