I noticed  people here haven’t changed at all, said my friend who had come from Hongkong.

Why  do you think so? I asked  unable to  understand   the reason for her statement.

Well, for one thing you are greeted  by their full complement of linen  when you enter their premises, she laughed derisively.

Now I understand what you mean, unfortunately habits die hard, I said  in agreement.

Don’t you people here have a roof hanger which is provided in every apartment I’m sure, she asked.

Yes we do, I said.

Then why don’t they make use of it for the purpose ?it sounded like an accusation.

I can’t  agree more but you  know habits die hard in our country, I lamented.

If  you find  any visual display  of your linen, you are punished, probably  it’s not done here, she mocked.

Well, when criminals  in high places get scot-free, I feel hanging clothes  for the world to see is not a crime at all, I  said  helplessly.
