Just being older, should not be a standard of respect
Should age be the determining factor to garner respect? What would be the other aspects to consider when showing respect towards another person?
When we are taught moral values in our childhood, the first thing we have taught is to respect elders and give love to our younger ones. It is also right to do so, but is it correct in every situation?
I have seen many such elders in the society who are not even worthy of respect, people who talk in abuses with people around them. It does not matter what their age is, yet they comment on girls or ladies. Irrespective of their age, whether female or male, but lack of decency reduces their respect.
After all, why people always connected to being old age and respect? I believe, give respect to someone who lives a life with honorable deeds, whether he is older or younger than you. What do you think about it? Should we remove the standard of age from the definition of respect?
