Matters of Propriety
by Sharbaaniranjan Kundu
Bookmark and Share
  I considered him a nice man.
Neat. Decent. Good to communicate.
Not that everything was hunky-dory with him.
But I never made an issue of his lapses.

For with a gentleman one does not mind being lenient.
But this man did not call me in his daughter's marriage,
all my colleagues were.

Searching for reason,
I found out, some words written officially for others
might have rubbed in on him.
But then one cannot but act
on matters of propriety,
without thinking what cascading effects
can result in future.

It is as well.

One should be humble,
and take matters of passive aspertion in stride.
Things that would not be,
could not be otherwise.
The silverline is tucked somewhere.

Be happy.
