‘Manners maketh man’-
Model answer written by
Prof. Vaishali Jane
“Manners maketh man”
Manners are very important in human life. We should always remember that Manners maketh (makes) man.
What do manners mean? Manners mean saying ‘Good morning, Good afternoon, Good evening’- it means greeting at someone when you see someone, smiling at someone, being kind to someone, graceful in look and behaviour and so on. Manners constitute not only outward appearance but also good conduct. Manners play a very vital role in building our personality
Manners reflect our character and character is one of the factors of our personality. A good personality is not known to one’s outward appearance or the dress one wears, but it is known to his behaviour and way of speaking. It gives good impression in front of others.
E.g Let’s recall that person in a crowded bus who willingly offers his /her seat to a co-passenger. We all appreciate such deed. It means the well-mannered person is always appreciated. Let’s take another example of Hitler, a famous dictator of Germany. Because of his troubled childhood and bad experiences with Jews, he became a tyrant in History. And he is condemned because of his ill-mannered behaviour. The example of Hitler shows that family background and one’s nurturing also affect one’s character and manners. And ill-mannered person is disliked or hated by everyone.
Life is a journey where we meet many people. It depends on our behaviour whether people stay with us or leave us. If we are well mannered, we will become the centre of attraction. So, we should speak politely, be courteous, be helpful to others, use golden words such as please, thank you, welcome, excuse me, sorry etc. as per the situation. These are the things that we have to do under the word ‘manners’.
Thus manners play a significant role in man’s life without which man can never be a complete man. So, this has been aptly summed up when we say, ‘Manners Maketh Man‘.
