There are so many things that we need to learn as we grow; grooming is one of them. Our grooming is effected by our class, our surrounding and mainly by our parents, but now with both parents working, the children sometimes need extra grooming. The lack of grooming affects one adversely when they enter the professional fields and the worse is when anyone enters politics. Our daily TV talk shows clearly display the lack of grooming of our politicians; it seems as if they do not know that the basic manner.

As there are many institutions world over that teach different subjects that are not exam oriented but goal-oriented, we could introduce subjects like ‘Personal Development’ or ‘Personal Grooming’ which should be obligatory for everyone. I remember that we had a behaviour class in school. This course could now be taught to the politicians.
