PROTOCOL OF DRESS
Why this generation has a abhorrence for protocols or traditions?
Why they give so much importance to comfort and none for propriety?
Personally I have always felt that by dressing properly we are giving respect to the host or guest due to them,according to the occasion. In the earlier days even my husband used to say that nobody will wear T.shirts, sports shoes etc in his office,Once a young graduate trainee in the early 80's came to the office without shaving, and he was sent back by the GM to come properly in the office or stay at home.
Then around the 90's he found many people doing this, though he still cant go to the office in the informals:). My daughter tells me ..this is software culture..but I say..is it culture?..I always believe in dressing according to the occasion whether its a happy occasion or even mourning.....and now I know people are going to say..how does it make any difference....It doesnt increase or decrease our quotient of feelings. But suitability of everything makes a difference everywhere, I remember two incidents in our family totally unrelated though , would like to share..
Once there was a death in our family and my brother wanted his wife to go in a saree, though she wear salwar kameez all the time otherwise,and i also support this view,because though we have started wearing all the dresses, in our families saree is still considered traditional, and wearing it, is a sort of following traditions, which I want to do.
Once my sister did her MBA training in a small town in a textile factory. After her training completed, the GM of that Co. wanted her to take up a job there........and the reason he gave was......being the only well groomed girl there.....she got lot of respect and admiration and many workers started coming properly dressed , and in time..all to impress her:), so she had brought a discipline there:), not present earlier.
I also feel the suitably attired person automatically gets the respect due to him/her, what do you have to say about this......
Thought for today...Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die
