10 things to learn from Japan

Just read this in an email. We all could learn a lesson or two.

10 things to learn from Japan-

  1. THE CALM  Not a single visual of chest-beating or wild grief. Sorrow itself has been elevated.
  2. THE DIGNITY  Disciplined queues for water and groceries. Not a rough word or a crude gesture.
  3. THE ABILITY  The incredible architects, for instance. Buildings swayed but didn’t fall.
  4. THE GRACE  People bought only what they needed for the present, so everybody could get something.
  5. THE ORDER  No looting in shops. No honking and no overtaking on the roads. Just understanding.
  6. THE SACRIFICE  Fifty workers stayed back to pump sea water in the N-reactors. How will they ever be repaid?
  7. THE TENDERNESS  Restaurants cut prices. An unguarded ATM is left alone. The strong cared for the weak.
  8. THE TRAINING  The old and the children, everyone knew exactly what to do. And they did just that.
  9. THE MEDIA  They showed magnificent restraint in the bulletins. No silly reporters. Only calm reportage.
  10. THE CONSCIENCE  When the power went off in a store, people put things back on the shelves and left quietly.

The world could learn a lot from Japan. Aren’t they the most cultured people !!!
