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.
