"Mind Your Language." Even Kids Know That.

Do you remember your kindergarten and primary school days? The class teacher will off and on remind us little kids to be polite and not be insulting or hurtful towards each other. At that tender age, we needed such timely reminders from our teachers and as a result of that gentle and friendly prodding, those of us who followed their advice have remembered it to this day and have strived to be as polite as we can. More importantly, we understood the effect of the use of harsh language and how hurting it was.

However even at that young age, amongst us were the rotters who did not then and still have not now, heeded that practical and common sense advice from our teachers. Many of these rotters have fallen by the wayside while some have made it despite their propensity to use bad and vulgar language, cursing, insulting, humiliating and belittling anyone who dares to question them. The successful among these rotters have somehow managed to go against the grain of civilised norms of behaviour, both verbal and physical and still made it in their lives. Whether they have the attributes to be called gentlemen is a different matter.

These are the people who despite their advancing age need to be reminded like school kids, again and again, to mind their language.

They will make all the fuss and demand the Pope to retract his statement (despite the Pope apologizing at least twice) but they will tell Karpal that he's missed the boat after using crude language on him WITH INTENT to discriminate and demean him.
