Yes., We are to be thankful to many!The words - 'Thank you very much' have their real meaning and influence the receiver a lot. If we don't reciprocate such minimum courtesy, people will easily evaluate our personality. Many of us are confined to say these words in the 'give and take policy' or when we are benefited from the other party. Prime Minister Narender Modi, who took initiative in thanking and motivating the front-line warriors at the borders and also those who are working to fight against the Covid Pandemic, should be applauded for recognizing the services of many who work under-current by displaying their courage and sincerity.
A thread in ISC -The people in our peripheral vision - did you say thanks to them? a couple of years ago caught my attention. The author's question - "What about the people who do the little things and whom we take for granted, who are sort of in our peripheral vision, just there, but unacknowledged directly?" is relevant for everyone and the small services of many go un-noticed by us but hey deserve a sincere 'thanks' (which costs nothing) from us. We should not hesitate to say 'sorry' to them even for our smaller mistakes. After all courtesy demands! But some of us feel that it is our privilege to get their services and its their bounden duty.
Do you ever feel to say 'thank you' or 'sorry' for little things?
