Arun mentions the “incident” related to few Indians getting together and spoiling the ceremony where people were requested not to bring cellphone/talk etc. Sin-yaw wang also mentioned about Chinease government trying to eradicate the 4 pests. On personal level agree with A. Kong – it is same as in India.
Although I agree with cleanliness and good manners but not with its equating with “civillization” (as if it matters as wife/mom/sister said). There is sense of “definition” of what means right and slowly it extends to everything, patriotism/loyalty/morality. Remember Nazi/Japanese or other similar pre-war status. Idea about formal dinners, what to wear (suits/etc) and how to eat. Shucks people are making money on “suspect” good manner teaching. What is right?
