Manners make a man. Good manners are admired by all. They make a person useful member of the society. They lend color and grace to life. They make the machine of life run smoothly. Good manners are even more important than the laws of the state.
We should have good manners at home. We should be respectful to our elders and affectionate to those who are younger to us. We should cooperate with each other in doing household work. We should look to the comforts of each member of the family. We should keep our house neat and clean. We should entertain the guests who visit us.
Good manners should be observed at school also. We should be respectful to our teachers. We should not make a mischief in the class. We should maintain discipline. We should not damage the school property. We should be helpful to those students who are weak.
Good manners are equally important in social life. We should be courteous and polite to others. In no case we should lose our temper. We should be polite even while turning down the unfair requests of others. We should treat all as equals. If we are in a company, we should talk less and listen more. We should not hurt the feelings of others. Whenever somebody does us a favor, we should use the words ‘please’ and ‘thank you’.
