Q4. Why is it important to be polite to people?
A4. I think it is important to be polite to people because people respond back to you in the same tone as we speak to them.Also, people tend to be more helpful if we speak in a sensible manner.
Describe traditional attire you wore.
It includes the below points:
- When did you wear it
- What was the occasion
- What did you like about it
Recently, I participated in a cultural show which was organized in my city by the Red Cross Society. It was basically held to collect some funds for charitable purpose and also to spread awareness among people about various water borne diseases. I was going to sing a patriotic group song so the entire group decided to wear a traditional dress i.e. “saree” which was white in color and had saffron and green border. These colors can also be found in our national flag. We all sang “VandeMatram” which is our national song. All of us had dressed up in tri-color and our hair was tied in a bun. We also wore a red colored bindi on our foreheads. At first I was nervous wearing the outfit but when I was complimented on how pretty I looked, it increased my confidence and I could concentrate on my performance. My nervousness completely vanquished and we clicked many photographs which were displayed on the instagram by my friends. We were not only appreciated for our performance but also liked on social media. From that day onwards, I decided that on such occasions I shall wear traditional clothes as I usually go for a casual wear on routine days.
