How do you treat the lift man and the security guard at your office? How do you treat the waiter in the hotel? How do you treat your house maid? Do you have respect for them?
It pains me to see these people being treated with no respect. “A Sharma…Idhar Aaa”, one of the boys in my society calls our watchman who’s at least 40 years older than him.
Why can’t be use respectful words for everyone who’s older than us? Our mother tongue gives us that power. English does not.
